Stakeholder Communication, Participation, and Consultation
During Project Design

Upper secondary and undergraduate education age cohorts will be the potential initial stakeholders. Education decision makers, planners and managers, and university subproject teams comprising university administrators and faculty members will be involved in the project, both as the executing and implementing agencies and as beneficiaries of project activities. The private sector may also be involved in decision-making committees; program definition, curriculum design, and thesis panels; and hiring teaching staff from enterprises.

Consultations during PPTA/project processing included (i) inception, midterm, and final seminars involving all the project stakeholders; (ii) a workshop involving decision makers, planners, managers, and representatives from the private sector on the specific policy and regulatory framework; and (iii) focused group workshops involving university subproject stakeholders in Ha Noi and Da Nang.

During Project Implementation Continuous dialogue and consultation with government, development partners and relevant stakeholders.
Business Opportunities
Consulting Services The Project requires hiring a number of firms or individual consultants to undertake its activities. These firms or individual consultants will be hired by the EA under a small number of consultancy packages. There has been extensive consultation with the government and with the French strategic partner for USTH.
Procurement The Executing Agency was revised from MOET to VAST. A new project steering committee is being established to provide overall guidance on strategy for development and support cross-agency policy dialogue.
