Project Description

According to bank documents, the objective of the project is to supply equipment to Tunisia’s central and local governments.

The RETF activities focus on procuring equipment for Tunisia’s central and local governments to provide impoverished existing, or expanded municipalities as well as newly created municipalities to have minimum material means to accomplish their missions as requested by law and to meet citizens’ expectations for service provision. With basic equipment supplies (such as desks, computers, telephones and fax, heating and air-conditioning), these municipalities will be expected to have the physical ability to perform their function and to provide expected services to citizens. This will also create a working environment able to attract and retain needed skilled staff.
