EBRD TAM/BAS Programme in Albania
Since inception in 1996, TAM has undertaken a total of 37 projects in Albania, in a wide coverage across industry sectors and with a generally even distribution of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises. Projects have been evenly distributed between the capital, Tirana, and the rest of the country. Of projects fully completed, 70% have been rated satisfactory or better. What has been identified as a key factor for TAM project success has been the degree of willingness and eagerness of the staff of assisted enterprises to learn from the TAM team.
The BAS grant is a key component of BAS assistance, thus helping financially constrained enterprises to access consultancy services. A Grant Guideline Matrix is used in order to prioritise intervention to areas where BAS assistance is additional in Albania.
- Size of enterprise: Higher grants are given to smaller enterprises.
- Geographic location: Higher grants are given to enterprises outside the capital in order to address the large economic discrepancies between the capital and the regions.
- Type of advisory service: Higher grants are given to support projects aiming to improve management effectiveness, to reduce costs, and to improve environmental management.
