What We Do?

Each year, hundreds of millions of dollars are awarded to international commercial projects and yet historically, billions remain untapped! Actually less than 8% of all international projects ever evolve to have the vendors and the funding necessary to make it to actual completion. We are the conduit between the needs and the funds from the U.S government and other international funding.
 
Using the propriatary PDI Process, our funding hub (PDIF) PDI Funding, Inc. reviews proposed projects and matches them with the appropriate funding source.

Funding support can be secured for projects from all available international development funding sources including U.S. Government agencies, the World Bank and the regional multilateral development banks, other multilateral donor agencies, and private funds.

Comparison of Standard RFP Process and Fast Track PDI Process

Typical RFP Open-Bid Process
•       Host Country makes Project Request to U.S. Embassy.
•       U.S. Embassy refers Project Request to appropriate Funding Agency, becomes public domain and open to all bidding companies.
•       Funding Agency initiates RFP Open-Bid Process for U.S. companies.
•       RFP Application process requires a third-party Due-Diligence Audit and Technical Review, with an approximate cost of $25,000. (This cost is applicable to only that specific Proposal.)
•       Funding Agency initiates RFP Open-Bid Process for qualified Technical Consultant to review and evaluate the bidding companies.
•       Technical Consultant selects three companies for Short-Listing, and Funding Agency publishes this selection (Challenges to this selection can require significant additional time.)
•       Upon finalization of Short-List selection, Technical Consultant makes contact with the Project Client (the first contact since initiating Project Request) to create a technical counterpart team in the Host Country.
•       Funding Agency initiates Feasibility Study phase and Project Funding process begins. (Because the timeline has usually elapsed without original Project-Client involvement, Project-Client has typically lost interest or moved on. The result is a very few proposed projects ever receive funding!)
 
The Proprietary PDI Process
•       Client requests the Consortium to be its representative for one or more projects.
•       The Consortium evaluates project’s technical feasibility and funding potential, using industry experts, technical consultants and the Professional Engineers and Executives Resource (PEER) Group Library.
•       The Consortium initiates a Definitional Mission to the project location, and completes the project’s Needs Assessment plan.
•       The Consortium writes a Feasibility Study Funding Request for the project on the Client’s behalf and submits to Funding Agencies for approval.
•       Funding Agencies initiate Feasibility Study phase and project funding process begins. (Project Client involved early on, and throughout the entire process).
