Project Description
According to ADB website, the proposed CDTA will review in detail Vanuatu Project Management Unit's (VPMU) project management role as envisaged in the VPMU Charter and as executed during project preparation, detailed designs, procurement, construction, and defects liability stages of infrastructure projects. The review will look into any duplication of roles and resources between VPMU, PWD, MIPU, and other government ministries or agencies. The review will also assess the effectiveness of the coordination role of VPMU and other ministries including MIPU and PWD in managing projects in light of an increasing public investment portfolio. It will map out the current arrangement and propose changes to strengthen Vanuatu's project management capacities. The impact will be sustainable, efficient and effective project management and implementation capability in VPMU, MIPU and PWD as set out in Strengthening Ni-Vanuatu Resilience - National Recovery and Economic Strengthening Program Plan 2015.
