Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design Consultations were carried out with various stakeholders, such as village community, local residents, women's group in the villages, representatives of government officials and executing and implementing agencies. Focus group discussions were conducted with 34 communities in various transmission and distribution subproject locations. Stakeholders were informed about the new project and program. Formal and informal consultations were carried out for the hydropower project including the host community. A village committee was formed in the hydropower project area to act as a key stakeholder during land acquisition and resettlement implementation.
During Project Implementation Consultation will continue with all stakeholders, including civil society, during investment program implementation. For the hydropower project in Moragolla, a housing committee and a resettlement committee, with representation from affected people, will work closely with Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) on implementation of land acquisition and resettlement issues. Continuing consultations are and will be ongoing with wildlife stakeholder organizations, assessing reservoir safety, and developing an appropriate mechanism to guarantee downstream flows between CEB and the Mahaweli Authority to maintain the endangered fish in the tailrace of the Moragolla dam. Information dissemination will continue during program implementation.

Business Opportunities

Consulting Services A consulting firm will be recruited for the TA project with 17.5 person-months for international and 19.0 person-months for national consultants. Taking into consideration the complexity of the investment program, the firm will be recruited using quality and cost based selection methodology with an 90:10 technical-cost weighting based on simplified technical proposal. The consulting firm will conduct technical, economic, financial, and governance due diligence, prepare project cost estimates, procurement plan and implementation schedule. The international and national environmental and social development specialists will be recruited on an individual basis to ensure that that they start their field activities early in the process due to the expected environmental and involuntary resettlement categories A for the MFF. Consultants will be recruited following Guidelines on the Use of Consultants by ADB and Its Borrowers, April 2010.
Procurement Procurement of works, goods, and services will be carried out in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines. ADB will allow advance contracting.

The Government has requested for the domestic preference for goods and turnkey contracts and a provision will be made in the loan agreement and further details of its application will be included in the bidding documents. It will be applicable to domestically manufactured goods in single responsibility turnkey contracts where the cost of the goods and supplies for permanent works is estimated prior to the bidding is equal or exceed 60% of such works. International competitive bidding (ICB) procedures will be used for procurement packages for the hydropower plant, 132 kV and 220 kV transmission lines, 220/132/33 kV grid substations, and 33 kV distribution lines and gantries and DSM pilot subprojects. CEB will recruit consultants to provide technical, supervision and monitoring support for implementation of hydropower power generation and other subprojects as well as capacity building for power sector development.
