  1. the project shall be of priority to the Government at the particular time and broadly consistent with the government strategic objectives;
  2. the private proponent does not require Government guarantee or any form of financial support from the Government;
  3. the project shall have unique attributes that justify departing from a competitive tender process and that others could not deliver a similar project with the same value for money outcome [changes from Bill];
  4. the project is of significant size, scope and requires substantial [changes from Bill] financing as per conditions provided in the regulations;
  5. the project shall demonstrate value for money, affordability and shall transfer significant risks to the private proponent;
  6. the project has wide social economic benefits including improved services, employment and taxation; and
  7. the proponent commits to bear cost of undertaking a feasibility study.
