Technical Assistance

SYSTEMA has implemented successfully a number of large Technical Assistance projects in donor markets and in EU member countries. Our involvement in implementing IPF (Infrastructure Investment Framework) multi-country projects in the Western Balkans and in numerous national projects for capacity building, strategy and sector development and master planning provide us the confidence to be able to offer high-quality services to different clients , with tangible results for the beneficiary countries.

1| Infrastructure Project Preparation Facilities and Blending Finance

The Infrastructure Project Facility (IPF) is a technical assistance instrument of the Western Balkans Investment Framework (WBIF) which is a joint initiative of the European Union, International Financial institutions, bilateral donors and the governments of the Western Balkans which supports socio-economic development and EU accession across the Western Balkans through the provision of finance and technical assistance for strategic infrastructure investments. This technical assistance operation is financed with EU funds.

The WBIF focuses on key sectors of the Western Balkan economies: energy, environment, social, transport, private sector development, and, since December 2017, digital infrastructure.

The Framework awards, based on competitive procedures, grants for infrastructure project preparation activities as well as for investments.

SYSTEMA has participated until today in most of the IPF projects, either as a supplier of services, or a consortium partner. Our in-house experts, together with our permanent local technical teams have repeatedly delivered high-quality services, within the time planning of each sub-project. We have experience in all WB6 countries covered by WBIF (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegoviva, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Serbia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) and Croatia, which was part of WBIF until it became an EU member.
