1.0 Introduction

  1. The Federal Government of Nigeria through the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), in collaboration with the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, in compliance with the Infrastructure Concession Regulatory Commission (“ICRC”) Establishment Act 2005, is supporting the deployment of a single window Device Management System (DMS) for mobile communication devices under public-private partnership (PPP) arrangement (“NCC Device Management System” or “the Project”).
  2. To this end, the Nigerian Communications Commission has retained the services of a Transaction Adviser to assist in the project preparation and procurement of a PPP Partner.
  3. The transaction process for the preparation and procurement of a private partner, is led by the Project Delivery Team (PDT) made up of key Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of the Federal Government, including the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, the ICRC and the Federal Ministry of Finance. The implementation of this Project falls under the regulatory oversight of the ICRC, therefore the ICRC guidelines will apply.
  4. The NCC invites interested firms and/or consortium of firms to participate in the qualification process for the selection of a Private Sector Operator through a Competitive Bidding process for the “Deployment of a Device Management System”. NCC expects the selected Private Partner to Design, Build, Finance, Operate, Maintain and Manage the DMS based on Tenure, Terms and Conditions to be set out in the PPP Agreement.
