All eligible borrowers and other project sponsors, including any governmental entities, providing project obligations to the Bank are authorized to perform any acts, take any action, adopt any proceedings, and make and carry out any contracts with the Bank, the manager, or the Board that are contemplated by this article. Such contracts need not be identical among all eligible borrowers or other project sponsors, but may be structured as determined by the manager according to the needs of the contracting eligible borrowers and other project sponsors and the purposes of the Bank.

In addition, subject to the approval of the manager, any project sponsor is authorized to establish and contract with a special purpose or limited purpose instrumentality, corporation, or other entity for the purpose of having such entity serve as the eligible borrower with respect to a particular project.
