The city of Rio de Janerio is undergoing a huge undertaking that was a campaign promise by its current mayor Marcelo Crivella. The mayor is keeping his promise through construction, maintenance and other pedagogical services of educational equipment. This plan of expansion will result in 20 thousand day care centers, and 40 thousand preschool by the end of 2020, says Felipe Montoro Jens, Project of Infrastructure.
According to Felipe Montoro Jens, The International Finance Corporation (IFC) a sister company of the World Bank is providing consultant services to help formulate plans to expand the city nursery and preschools networks. IFC was hired for 2.3million Brazilian Real. The IFC contributes more than any other private entities in developing countries. IFC is committed to applying their financial resources, expertise, innovative thinking and global experience to help their partners overcome financial and operational challenges.
Then candidate for mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Marcelo Crivella made a commitment to invest heavily in the education sector. He then vowed to “create 20,000 new day care centers and 40,000 new pre-schools by 2020 via Public Private Partnerships. The private entities are responsible for construction and administration maintenance of the new childcare facilities as well as the educational facilities.
December 30, 2004 a Public Private Partnerships blue print was laid out. According to No. 11,079 general rules were established for bidding and contracting within the public administration. This law is an attempt to address the issue of the scarcity of funds available for development within the public or government sectors. The PPP established an agreement stating partnerships can be established between the Union, State, Federal Districts, Municipalities as well as private partners.
