PTA Advertises Consultancy Requirements for 3G Auction

As directed by Prime Minister of Pakistan, Pakistan Telecommunication Authority today advertised the RFP (Request for Proposal) for the consultancy services of 3G spectrum auction.


Just to recall, PTA had initially issued information memorandum for 3G auction, base prices for spectrum and the date for bidding without hiring a consultant. But it eventually advertised the hiring of consultant, amid pressure from government to follow PPRA rules for public procurement such as 3G, but the auction process was sabotaged till then due to criticism from opposition parties.

Later it was demanded to revamp the 3G policy and to revise the whole IM based on input from consultant.

It is now that PTA has advertised the requirement of a consultancy firm (ad for which is produced below), which is likely to help the authority in developing the IM from scratch. Consultant firm will assist PTA in all steps of auction including marketing, valuation, process design and maintaining transparency to best benefit the government of Pakistan.

  • Bus kar do bhai,,, mai tu bor ho gaye houn, 3G phir 3G… A deep dream………………

  • 3G Spectrum consultancy is done by almost all Telecom regulatory authorities in the world. But here in Pakistan I doubt on the intentions of the Gov’t I suspect that might be by this way some Minister will make his own so called company & later destroy whole process of 3G auction..

    • A golden chance for Telco’s to talk some multinational into it mutually and then get all the requirements done as they like it.

  • Well i have heard the cellular providers are no more interested for the 3G during this governments tenure…… :D now lets see!!!!

  • A non refundable processing of 1,000 dollars means that only the “preselected” consultant will do the job.

    Issay kehtay hain transparency. Thank you Farooq Awan Sb buhat buhat thank you!
