The change of government after the political election in June 2013 resulted in a general turnover of the MTI staff responsible of the Program implementation.

The program has suffered of further delay due to the MTI new staff's limited knowledge of the Program and of the implementation procedures to be followed.

Actions taken

The Italian Embassy/ Development Cooperation Office (UTL) provides continuos assistance/training in order to facilitate the MTI in the Pogramme management.

In 2010 two calls for tenders have been launched by MTI, respectively, for the Works Supervision and for the Design and Works. The tender for the Works Supervision was awarded while the tender for the Works has been cancelled in 2011 for procedural errors upon DGCS request.

The launch of the Project was delayed until 2014.

Actions taken

The design and works tender was re-launched by MTI in 2013, upon an in-depth revision of the tender dossier carried out by MTI with the DGCS assistance in order to ensure more transparency and objectivity to the tender evaluation process. Upon positive conclusion of the tender evaluation procedure, in April 2014 two contracts were signed in Tirana, respectively for the Executive Planning and Works for the rehabilitation of the port of Vlora and for the Works Supervision and Safety Coordination. In July 2015 the Construction Works have started.
