Government and Infrastructure (G&I) Advisory Service
Government and Infrastructure (G&I) Advisory Service
Farahat & Co. empowers federal government entities through expert advisory services to use the private sector in improving infrastructure provision and public services.
Across the UAE, expectations of what their governments can achieve continually rise; however, the challenge is unlikely met with neither the traditional increase of the public sector workforce nor more government spending. Governments must now do and achieve more with less. Essentially, this means becoming both effective and efficient.
Farahat & Co. works with public sector and government organizations at all levels from local to national, helping them meet unique challenges to create better outcomes not just for the government agencies, but also for the citizens that they serve.

Our team of G&I specialists also provide bidder-side and government procurement advisory on project finance and public-private partnership (PPP) transactions.
We provide support to improve the performance and efficiency of government agencies that are involved in the delivery of public service.

At Farahat & Co., we know that exploring private sector participation (PSP) options that are in line with the best practices is a concern and challenge for even the leading government agencies, state-owned enterprises, and governmental ministries. Key scenarios wherein a government can improve private sector use include:
- Corporation of organizations and functions;
- Release of value of underutilized fixed assets (e.g. real estate);
- Complex contracting or outsourcing of the private sector for effective and efficient service delivery;
- Private delivery and financing of new capital assets;
- Privatization, carve-out or divestment of government business enterprises or units
