Gov’t to tender phase two of the PPP schools program in mid-July

The government plans to issue a tender for the second wave of schools to be built and managed in partnership with the private sector in mid-July, said the head of the Education Ministry’s PPP office Amany El Far. The second phase of the program will see the ministry tender 100 plots of land for 100 schools, up from 54 plots in phase one, she tells Al Mal. Education Minister Tarek Shawki had said earlier this month that at least 18 private companies have expressed interest in developing schools under phase two. The government is looking to set up 200 schools under PPP. Five companies had already won tenders to build 21 schools as part of phase one of the project, on which work is expected to begin as soon as the Cabinet signs off on tender results.
