Policy and Legislative Advisory

Palladium International, LLC is the implementing contractor of the USAID funded Kenya Investment Mechanism.

This Request for Proposals seeks to subcontract a consulting firm that will co-actively lead policy and regulatory reforms, with identified counties and/or the Government of Kenya (GoK) to remove barriers inhibiting large-scale investment, thereby unlocking further investment opportunities.

Areas of policy considerations are:

  • Agriculture and Finance policies: This will involve identifying policy issues and gaps regarding mandates, functions and roles, civic education and public participation, support to national government, county governments, investment agencies and decentralized units.
  • Public Private Partnerships (PPP) legal advisory- review the existing legal framework and to suggest minimum modifications to remove legal obstacles to the execution of public-private partnerships.

The expected results will mobilize substantial capital and build partnerships among stakeholders in the financial ecosystem, which support Kenya’s journey to self-reliance and ultimately contributes to USAID’s overall goal of fostering broad-based, sustained, and inclusive economic growth in Kenya.
