Procurement

Procurement under the Project will follow the ADB's Guidelines for Procurement under Asian Development Bank Loans. The civil works to be contracted include the district council roads, and a limited number of small building facilities, and multi-village water supply systems. These works lend themselves to local competitive bidding (LCB) as the contracts will be small (less than $1,000,000), scattered over 10 administrative areas, and phased over the Project implementation period. The local capacity to undertake these contracts is adequate and the civil works will be carried out by prequalified contractors through local competitive bidding in accordance with procedures acceptable to ADB. The civil works for community-managed rural infrastructure including micro-irrigation schemes, feeder roads (jeepable tracks), small drinking water and sanitation schemes, and hydels will be carried out generally by the VOs, which will procure materials directly from local suppliers, following procedures acceptable to ADB.
