In this section parties interested in PFS can find tools and resources to help them advance their own PFS projects. These tools include guidelines around structure and risk, tools to assess readiness and conduct due diligence prior to investment, sample PFS contracts, and templates from successfully launched projects. Multiple stakeholders including service providers, governments, intermediaries, and evaluators will find these tools helpful in developing their own PFS projects.
RSQs are assessments consisting of 10-15 questions that evaluate organizational suitability and readiness to pursue a SIB model. There are seven different questionnaires customized for each of the stakeholders involved in a transaction.
