This Project can be classified as Category B (relatively small scale), not requiring an environmental impact assessment. Subject to the implementation of specified mitigation measures, the Project should be able to proceed

without any significant negative effects.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services Approximately 7 person-months of international consulting services were required for the project management unit and were estimated at US$177,000. Approximately 1.5 additional person-months of consulting services will be required to cover the extended period of construction supervision and necessary changes to some of the designs.
Procurement Goods and services financed by ADB under the Project will be procured in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. The civil works have been tendered under international competitive bidding. Materials and equipment valued below $50,000 will be procured under direct purchase procedures. Funds from the supplementary loan will be used to finance part of the shortfall of the civil works contract. The received bids from the shortlisted firms for this ICB were all more than 100% above the appraisal estimates. The civil works contract will be offered for partial award to the lowest substantive responsive bidder for negotiations.
