Build Operate Transfer
A BOT project is an arrangement whereby the private sector designs, builds, finances, operates and maintains a facility for a fixed tenure, at the end of which it is transferred to the government.
The Build Operate Transfer (BOT) Projects Act 2016 was enacted on 5 April 2016 to provide for a simpler, transparent and more practical process to implement infrastructure projects. Government intends to use private sector participation to implement large infrastructure projects in view of creating employment and achieving high economic growth. The BOT Projects Act 2016 provides the legal framework for the execution of projects under BOT agreements in Mauritius.
