|Description||The broad goals of the Project are to contribute to (i) poverty reduction by addressing inequity in human development through improved provision and completion of the nine-year basic education for poverty-affected children; and (ii) implementation of regional autonomy by supporting decentralized management of basic education. The immediate objectives are to: (i) improve poor children's participation in and completion of nine-year basic education; (ii) develop the capacity of districts to plan, manage, finance and deliver basic education services, improve community participation in developing basic education; and (iii) demonstrate the effectiveness of proposed and demand-based block grant mechanisms to support initiatives of the school, community and district for basic education improvement.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
The Development Plan of the Government (PROPENAS) and the ADB country operational strategy prioritize poverty reduction and regional equity. Achieving and sustaining these goals require equitable provision of quality basic education to set a foundation (i) to reduce existing gaps in human development across the country, and (ii) to improve balanced availability of trainable human resources to support social and economic development. The project will contribute to these strategic goals, through (i) focused investment in basic education targeted to poverty affected areas, schools, and children, and (ii) improved management and governance of basic education through decentralization and measures for transparency and accountability of the basic education system to communities and civil society.

The Project will finance three packages of consultants: (i) Package A: Mentoring Services for School Based Management, (ii) District Capacity Building and Implementation Support, and (iii) Package C: Independent Monitoring and Evaluation. Package A will comprise one international consultant (30 person months), 13 domestic consultants (684 person months) and about 85 domestic community worker-type mentors to work directly with schools and communities. Package B will comprise one international consultant (24 person-months) and 46 domestic consultants (1,680 person-months). Package C will comprise one international consultant (48 person-month) and 16 domestic consultants (560 person-months).
The consultants will be selected and engaged in accordance with the ADB's Guidelines on Use pf Consults and other arrangements acceptable for ADB for engagement of domestic consultants. Advance procurement action has been allowed for the recruitment of consultants.
The Project will support rehabilitation of school facilities not meeting the minimum conditions of learning. It is estimated that the loan will cover rehabilitation of approximately 1400 primary and junior secondary schools. Civil works for school rehabilitation and school furniture (both labor and materials) will be procured locally by beneficiary schools and communities through procedures acceptable to ADB, based on the procedures already working under on-going ADB financed projects.
The Project will procure a small amount office equipment for project implementation units (CFU, PPMU, and DPMMU), such as computers for administration and data processing/management, and vehicles. Each package is estimated to cost less than $50,000 and will procured under Direct Purchase procedures showing evidence of limited local tender to obtain the most competitive prices. As each district has slightly different requirements, and districts enter into project implementation in phases, equipment will be packaged and procured in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement under ADB loans.
The Project will finance purchase of textbooks and other teaching/learning materials through the SDF school improvement category. Actual requirements will be determined by each school, but will not exceed $6,000. Schools will select and purchase textbooks and materials, using Direct Purchase procedures showing evidence of limited local tender to obtain the most competitive prices.
