Palladium is a global business that undertakes the management of international development projects throughout the world. It operates through different corporate entities in the various regions in which it conducts its business. The tender is in relation to the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment where the Company is contracted by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Sustainable Economic Development Department (DDE) (the Client) to manage the fund. The aim of the Challenge Fund is to improve economic prospects – via decent work and income – for up to 200,000 young men and women in the Middle East, North Africa, Sahel, and the Horn of Africa. The Client has entered into the contract with Palladium Europe BV which is registered in The Netherlands.
At present, the Company is looking to sign funding agreements with the Implementing Parties (IPs) in Senegal. As part of these agreements, the Company is committed to providing Technical Assistance (TA) to allow the IPs to reach the full potential. As the Company does not currently have a locally registered corporate entity to trade from Senegal, the Company requires the Tenderer to act as an intermediary local service provider for its project operations in Senegal to manage tax, contracting, employment, immigration and other compliance requirements.
