Energy Private Developers is a Registered Professional Association in Rwanda, regrouping private companies operating in energy sector. It is one of the 5 Associations composing the Chamber of Industry under the Private Sector Federation (PSF) of Rwanda. The Statutes and Articles of Energy Private Developers (EPD) have been Published in Official Gazette of Rwanda, No 41 of 13/10/2014.
EPD has a clear mandate of achieving Universal Energy Access in Rwanda through supporting the private sector in an environment where the Private Sector can Innovate, Grow, and Thrive.
EPD has been in operation since 2016. A lot of progress since inception has been registered both within the association, member companies, development partners and the sector at large. A steadfast progress of activity accomplishments can equally be manifested from the time when EPD secured grant funding opportunities from various Development Partners;
In this regard, EPD desires an auditor to express an opinion on the fair presentation of its basic financial statements in conformity with the standards applicable to financial audits contained in internationally accepted Auditing Standards, and those issued by the auditor General of the Republic of Rwanda. This auditor would also provide an “in-relation-to” opinion on the supplementary information based on the auditing procedures applied during audits of the basic financial statements for professional Trade Associations such Energy Private Developers (EPD Rwanda).

Lot 3: Request for Proposal for Development of EPD Sustainability Strategy;
EPD intends to develop a Sustainability plan- a document, that will describe how EPD projects will be sustained in the long term. This document will spell out how our projects will survive in the long term.
It will give EPD and the donors a reassurance that the grants will be well spent and will have a long-lasting impact, even once the support runs out. We believe this sustainability plan is also important because donors would like to fund projects that have the potential to survive and thrive in the long term.
At EPD, we believe that while it is important to know how EPD projects will be financed in the long term, there are other parts of sustainability that are also very important. These include membership sustainability, organisational sustainability, stakeholder’s sustainability, community sustainability and environmental sustainability.
EPD also believes that this sustainability plan is important to funders and donors because it will add to assure the funders and instil convidence in them that EPD thinks and plans into the future and to facilitate them in justifying their decisions to fund EPD projects to their funder boards.
EPD’s Sustainability strategy will be built on key principles which shall include Assumptions; Predictions; Descriptive; Consistence; Reliability; Long-time Partnership and Rooted in the EPD community.
We are therefore requesting for both technical and financial proposals from competent firms and or individuals to develop a thoughough Sustainable strategy for EPD.
