European Development Fund/Programme Management and Co-ordination Unit
1st Floor, Administrative Centre
Bay Street, Kingstown
St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Welcome to the web portal of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines European Development Fund Programme Management and Co-ordination Unit (EDF/PMCU). We at the EDF/PMCU are working arduously to ensure the programming and implementation of all European Union (EU) grants to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). To this end the Unit serves as a hub, located in the Central Planning Division of the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, where all line Ministries and Agencies benefiting from EU grants can find the needed guidance and assistance to implement their related projects and programmes.

Our website is designed to further our assistance to beneficiaries, ministries and agencies in the dissemination of information to the public and to promote the visibility of our partner projects with the European Union. It is suffice to note that the EU financing portfolio is the largest foreign donor to SVG. Our projects and programmes cover each sector of the economy, including Education, Information and Communication Technology, Tourism, Private Sector Development, Agriculture, Health and Economic Infrastructure.

The role of the EDF/PMCU has been critical in the implementation of all our projects and programmes. In many instances our Unit provides on-the-job training to line Ministries and Agencies in EU project cycle and implementation procedures and facilitation of tendering operations. We also conduct periodic review of ongoing projects and project audits. It is our intention that this website will assist in the performing role of the EDF/PMCU and create more support for what we do. Much useful information related to the EU funded project operations can be found on the site as well as a special portal for procurement.

Thank you for your interest in our operations.
