The PDI ProcessSM (Project Development International) helps create the most efficient, transparent, technologically-appropriate, financially-viable, development projects, by bringing together project clients, funders, technical advisors, and providers of goods and services. The key element of the PDI Process is the unique use of competitive, no-bid procurement, which significantly reduces the time to secure project funding and procure goods and services compared to the traditional request for proposal process.
Competitive, no-bid procurement reduces the time required to award contracts, lowers administrative costs, allows more small business participation, and improves delivery of goods and services. Through the PDI Process, The Consortium rigorously analyzes businesses to meet the strict standards of funding agencies and has a third party vet the businesses to prequalify them to provide goods and services through competitive, no-bid procurement.
The PDI Process helps The Consortium analyze a client’s project concept, bring in technical advisors to help the client effectively design the project, match the best companies to supply goods and services, ensure that the project meets all funding guidelines, and then bring the strategically designed project directly to the proper funder for quick funding of the project. The PDI Process involves project clients in every step of the project and gives them the tools to make informed decisions about the project, which ensures client and stakeholder ownership and long-term sustainability of the project. The PDI Process saves time and money for project clients, development funders, technical advisors, and businesses that supply goods and services to development projects.
