Project Description

The project will finance the engagement of a consulting firm to undertake (i) surveys to facilitate detailed design of key assets; (ii) detailed design of water supply network infrastructure; (iii) procurement support to the executing and implementing agencies, including preparation of bidding documents, bid evaluation, and contract award; and (iv) safeguard support and community engagement in preparation for the project. The firm is expected to mobilize before the TA is completed, and will continue until the award of contracts under the investment project. The PDA will facilitate a smooth transition from the TA to the investment project, minimize contracting delays, and speed up the initial disbursement under the ensuing financing.

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF ADB

The Accountability Mechanism is an independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who believe they are likely to be, or have been, adversely affected by an Asian Development Bank-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the Accountability Mechanism, they may investigate to assess whether the Asian Development Bank is following its own policies and procedures for preventing harm to people or the environment. You can learn more about the Accountability Mechanism and how to file a complaint at: http://www.adb.org/site/accountability-mechanism/main
