Closed. Lessons learned from the design and implementation of the previously GPOBA-funded Bolivia SHS and the Myanmar National Electrification Project ICB documents have been successfully incorporated in the Philippines ASEP – PV Mainstreaming bidding documents. A consultative process with potential bidders was conducted to better assess the interest in the market and potential barriers. The bidding process for the selection of supply and installation contractors took place during the reporting period. The process targeted the installation of 10,000 SHS in the concession area of four Electric Cooperatives. The bidding process was closed in June 2017 and the contract award is in the finalization stage.
