ICF is supporting a project to improve the process of issuing construction permits in the region of Dakar. The project will introduce an electronic system for individuals and companies to apply, pay and receive their construction permits online. The system includes SMS notification to alert applicants about the status of their application.
The project is expected to reduce the permit processing time from 90 days to 28 days for simple construction projects and 40 days for complex construction projects. The processing fee is expected to reduce by 93% from US$28 to US$2 (excluding tax).
