The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources has applied for financing from the World Bank toward the cost of the Land Administration Project Phase 2 Additional Financing, and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consulting services.

The Project will be implemented through four-interrelated Components, namely:

1. strengthening the Policy, Legal and Regulatory Framework for Land Administration;

2. decentralizing and improving Business and Service Delivery Processes;

3. providing improved Maps and Spatial Data for Land Administration; and

4. engaging in Human Resource Development and Project Management.

The objective of the Consultancy is to provide technical assistance in terms of conducting needs assessments for five (5) Client Service Access Unit (CSAU) in total; refurbishment of two (2) existing buildings and design review for construction of three (3) new CSAUs.

The assignment is in two phases:

1.     Phase 1 of the assignment covers the pre-contract activities including inspection, review, production of designs, selection and engagement of contractors for the construction of the building.
