Pre-investment studies (SNIP)
We advise both government entities and social investment funds of private companies in the design, development, and monitoring of pre-investment studies at the profile and feasibility levels, within the framework of the National Public Investment System (SNIP, for its acronym in Spanish). In order to do this, we use best practices and tools (participatory workshops, demand studies, cost analysis, etc.) in the preparation of studies so that the projects represent a real solution to the problem they aim to solve.
AC Publica advises clients in the following assessments for the completion of the study:
- General aspects: include the project definition, its institutional framework, and frame of reference.
- Identification: we develop a thorough diagnosis of the problem to be solved, the corresponding problem tree, and the project’s approach, and then identify alternative solutions.
- Formulation: we assess the supply-demand gap and undertake the technical analysis of the alternatives. In addition, costs at market prices are estimated.
- Evaluation: We carry out social and private evaluations, and analyze the project’s sustainability, management, environmental impact. The logical framework matrix is also developed.
AC Publica has developed specialized training plans for formulating investment projects under the guidelines of the National Public Investment System, and with the "learning by doing" approach. The training course allows participants to develop a real case of project formulation, so that they "learn by doing" their own investment project.
