Monitoring And Supervision Of Big Platform And Bd Market Place The Government of Nigeria has emphasized the importance ofdiversifying the economy, supporting sectors that have potential for growth and creating massive employment. In line with thiscommitment, the Government has sought the World Bank's partnership to help Nigeria support Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises(MSME) operating in different high potential sectors throughoutthe country. This support is being implemented under the FederalMinistry of Industry, Trade and Investment (FMITI) and operationalized in the Growth and Employment (GEM) Project. The GEM ProjectDevelopment Objective isto increase firm growth and employment inparticipating firms in Nigeria. The project focuses on manufacturing and service sectors, specifically supporting ICT, entertainment,tourism and hospitality, light manufacturing and construction. Project support addresses cross cutting sector issues, assistance tospecific clusters, and more direct support to firms channeled through a platform ? called the Business Innovation and Growth (BIG)Platform ? providing various trainings, technical assistance and grant schemes. It is for the above that the GEM Project seeks toengage the services of reputable firms/consortia to monitor and supervise the two big instruments implemented under the GEMproject, namely the BIG Platform and the BD Market place. Brief details related to these two instruments are providedbelow. BIG Platform: - The project team is developing an integratedtransaction enabled web-portal as the primary means of interactionbetween the project and its beneficiaries.

The GEM program willcomprise of five grant windows, namely: (i) Equity, (ii) Matching/Innovation, (iii)Performance, (iv) Institutional and (v) Innovative Market. The Business Development Market Place: - The GEM project designed an innovative approach todevelop consultingservices in Nigeria, called Business Development Market Place (or BD Market Place). This program would raise the standard ofservice providers by providing them with training and through theestablishment of a performance based contracting between BDSproviders and the GEM program team. This program will also build a portfolio of clients for the BDS providers. The GEM will enablethe market to setthe stage for a sustainable provision of BDS services across the country. The project team launched a platform "Business Development Market Place" (http://www.bdmpnigeria.org/) for MSMEs register to the program. Eventually this website will be linked tothe BIG'S Portal. It is expected that over the next 3 years, about 10,000 MSMEs (called "Awardees") will be supported by about 36business development services firms (called "BD partners") ? between three to seven BD partners inthe six geopolitical zones ofNigeria. The GEM project will largely subsidize the costs of the services provided by the BDS providers.
