This Good Practice Note (GPN) is aimed at helping clients implement sound, consistent, and effective approaches, in compliance with IFC requirements, to manage the environmental and social (E&S) performance of their contractors, subcontractors, and other third parties working for the project. This GPN provides practical guidance to clients and contractors on the process of prequalification, solicitation, evaluation, contracting, and procurement to ensure adequate E&S management during construction, operation, and demobilization activities. Finally, it provides recommendations on how to manage project performance during the different phases of the services being provided by contractors (i.e., from mobilization to construction, operations, and maintenance) and how to monitor and report on contractor performance effectively.
