Capacity building of domestic contractors

Main benefits obtained after the first pilot

Role of ADB in first pilot project and
recommendations for the future
2
BACKGROUND
ADB Loan 2406-CAM (SF) / IDA Cr. 4442:
Road Asset Management Project (RAMP)
2008 approved
Established Road Maintenance Management System
(RMMS), and
Provided Capacity Building of MPWT Staff and the
Local Construction Industry

ADB Loan 2373-CAM (SF): Southern
Coastal Corridor Project (SCCP) 2008
approved
Pilot Program of Periodical and Routine Maintenance
PBRC
3
MAIN DRIVERS OF TESTING PBRCs
Improve institutional and technical
capacity
Establish a Road Maintenance
Management System (RMMS)
Outsource force account
Efficiency goals for the private sector

4
Improve Institutional and Technical Capacity
- as Road Maintenance Reform
Establishing a dedicated unit, Road Asset
Management Office (RAMO) within the
Ministry to plan, budget, and implement road
asset management
Trainings for road condition survey, analysis,
assessment and prioritization of roads
Budget planning and submission
Implementation with supervision and quality
control
5
Establishment of RMMS
RMMS includes:
Knowledge of Asset (international roughness index,
condition asset, asset cost)
Level of Road Services (example, next slide)
Predicting Traffic Demands (Automatic Traffic Counting
System [ATCS])
Road Performance Monitoring
Maintenance Management
Finance/Cash Flow
Asset Management Planning
Chain of Commands



6
Level of Road Service
MPWT to set level of road service based upon 5
parameters:






Based upon above parameters MPWT to develop
maintenance standard/specifications/method
statement
7
Parameters Satisfactory Critical Unacceptable
Rutting (mm)
Cracking
Riding quality
(mm/km)
Deflection
Skid Resistance
Outsource Force Account
Gradual shift from conventional approach of provincial engineers judgment
and political influence to an application of Location Referencing Condition
Survey (LRCS) and HDM-4 in preparation of Annual and Three Year Rolling
Budget Planning Programs
Gradual shift from force account to outsourcing, targeting 30% planned to be
outsourced in 2014, with 10% annual increase
Gradual shift from Input to Output PBRC
Challenges for many local contractors:
Lack of familiarity with externally funded contracts, and PBRCs
Lack of experience in preparing bids for PBRCs

Provide capacity building to force account units to be ready to outsource
maintenance works through PBRCs and also do works by themselves
through PBRCs (target year 2016):
Prepare technical documents to carry out PBRCs
Review Financial Regulatory Framework
Provide training to Provincial Departments of Public Works and
Transport staff


8
Efficiency Goals for the Private Sector
Trainings planned for future as capacity building:

Quality Assurance/Quality Control trainings
Project Administration and Management
Procurement of civil works and consultant services
Social Safeguard compliance
Benefit Monitoring and Evaluation
Good Governance Framework
Accounting and disbursement

Efficiency goals: efficient, safe, environment friendly project
implementation with satisfactory quality and minimized
impacts, transparency and accountability
9
MAIN BENEFITS OBTAINED AFTER
THE FIRST PILOT PBRC
Manuals for Road Maintenance and
Supervision have been prepared

RAMO has facilities and skills to produce
Annual Road Maintenance Plan (ARMP)

Several very good local contractors/
consultants emerged
10
DOS AND DONTS
Dos
Out-sourcing with application of PBRC
Gradual out-sourcing PBRC in line with growing
capacity of local construction industry
Provision of PBRC trainings to MPWT, PDPWTs, MEF,
and Contractors
Assessment methodology to be simple




11
Donts
Take a short term approach
Establish the level of road service above available budget
Transfer risk to the contractor excessively
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR
THE FUTURE
IDA and MPWT are in Detailed Design
Process to prepare four PBRC packages of 157
km in total amount of $ 64.0 million

ADB and MPWT are preparing PPTA: Second
RAMP, to design a project with the application
of PBRC
