Role of Service Providers

Project developers and financial intermediaries in the ICEF program can select from a network of service providers empanelled with ICEF. Service providers provide support to the ICEF-supported project developers and financial intermediaries, against receipt of grants. Service providers include engineering consultancy firms, management consultancy firms, financial advisory firms, market research agencies, law firms, and monitoring and verification agencies.

ICEF invites other experienced service providers to become empanelled. The process of the selection of service providers is as follows:

Service providers submit applications and CPI, as the Program Manager, selects eligible service provider to join the ICEF network.

Project developers and financial intermediaries engage the network of service providers to provide relevant support.

Service providers receive the payment from ICEF upon successful delivery of services.
