The PIDA Quality Label (PQL) is a quality recognition by the AUDA-NEPAD Service Delivery Mechanism (SDM). It is awarded to projects that excel in the preparation of PIDA projects at an early stage.

The PQL is implemented through a collaborative process agreed upon by the institutional and financial parties. This goal is achieved by shortening the period needed to reach the feasibility and bankability stages, identifying project preparation bottlenecks and advising project owners on how to bridge these, and certifying excellence in project preparation with the recognition of relevant PIDA stakeholders.

The PQL will require projects to undergo through three different stages, the first of which being the Quick Check Methodology (QCM):

  • Quick Check (QC) Stage (PQL1): a first filter will identify project preparation gaps and will help Regional Economic Communities (recs) and African Union Member States (MS) to structure project information and knowledge.
  • Pre-feasibility Stage (PQL2): identification of Project Preparation Funds (ppfs) potentially interested in project technical support according to their submission requirements, helping the owners to be considered as eligible for the financing of technical studies.
  • Advanced Stages (PQL3): facilitate support to project owner to establish bankability of project to strengthen potential financial close of project.
