Local Infrastructure Facility (LIF)
The Local Infrastructure Facility (LIF) encompasses three major components: i) dedicated technical assistance to help assess the needs and, based on the call for expression of interest addressed to local communities, develop a pipeline of shortlisted and ready-to-tender projects; ii) actual infrastructure works; and iii) works supervision. The Facility thus helps identify, screen, develop, prepare for tender, and implement local infrastructure investments, targeting funding on a competitive basis to ensure the best value for money and providing capacity building support to local communities. LIF also serves in assisting the implementation of emergency support to the Turkish Cypriot community.
UNDP takes charge of the implementation of the LIF including project maturation (feasibility studies, design and tender dossier), works and supply contracts, procurement procedures, works implementation (including ancillary services and supply contracts which may arise from the project design), and supervision of works contracts.
|Since 2018 approximately €12.56 million of European Union funds have been provided by the European Commission to implement the priorities of the Local Infrastructure Facility.|
