Regie de Production et de Distribution d'Eau et d'Electricite (REGIDESO) also recruited consultants in June to carry out procurement and in December to supervise tendering and construction of the projects and a related transmission line.

Expressions of interest, labeled "Manifestation d'Interet pour le Recrutement d'un Consultant en Environnement et en Evaluation Sociale pour le Suivi des Aspects Socio-Environnementaux de PHJIMU," are due to the address below by 10 a.m. July 2.
