The Tripartite Partnership (TPP) Project screened and recruited capable consultants for the Ashaiman, Mankessim and Huni Valley pilot project implementation process. The project implementation process required the recruitment of consultants to support the 3 TPP Pilot Projects.
The process of recruiting capable consultants started during the second quarter of 2010. The complete scope of activities in each town was broken into 3; namely: (i) Engineering and Architectural design; (ii) Capacity building for sustainability and (iii) sanitation, hygiene and community management aspects. An advert was placed in the national dailies inviting Consultants to submit Expressions of Interest (EOIs), which had twenty eight different firms responding. The firms were screened and the profile of each of the firms was reviewed and grouped into the nine lots required for the 3 towns (3 per town). Within the same period the Team prepared the detailed Request for Proposals. The shortlisted firms were provided with the RFPs and allowed about a month to submit the final Technical and Financial proposals for evaluation. The successful consultants were then selected and have started work in earnest.
