In Mongolia: Information and Communications Project Seeks Consultant PDF Print E-mail
Written by Ulaanbaatar correspondent   
Sunday, 07 May 2006
The Government of Mongolia has applied for financing from the World Bank toward the cost of the Information and Communications Infrastructure Development Project, and intends to apply part of the proceeds for consultant services.

The services include
?Provision of Consulting Services to the Implementation of the Universal Access Strategy of Mongolia?.

The main objective of this assignment is to provide Communications Regulatory Commission (CRC) in Mongolia transaction support for the implementation of Mongolia?s Universal Access strategy to accelerate the development of rural telecommunications infrastructure and services in locations that are unlikely to attract sufficient private investment.In particular, existing and new service providers will be awarded least-cost capital subsidies to provide telecommunications access, voice and internet access in the rural area.This would primarily be achieved through a competitive award of capital subsidies through an output-based aid (OBA) tender process to operators that would be responsible for installing, operating, and maintaining the new telecommunications systems on a commercial basis.
Specifically, the consultants will provide technical assistance support for:
(i) detailed design of programs to be financed;
(ii) identification and prioritization of sites to be subsidized;
(iii) detailed design of subsidy bidding process, bidding documents, and guidelines for evaluation of bids;
(iv) support CRC in evaluating and awarding the subsidies; and
(v) monitoring and evaluation.

The assignment will be divided into two phases as summarized below: Phase I: Detailed design of the programs to be financed including the design of the competitive process required for the implementation of the programs, as well as the preparation of the necessary bidding documents and contracts; and Phase II: Implementation of the programs including support during the competitive bidding processes of the programs up to the point of contract signature with the selected bidder, and monitoring and evaluation. Phases I of this consultancy is scheduled to be completed within about 4 months from the date of signing the agreement between the client and the consultant.Phase II of this consultancy will take about 3 years to complete from the date when the bid proposals are received.The exact timing will depend on the speed of implementation of the programs.The client reserves the right to decide whether to go ahead with Phase II at the end of Phase I.

The Project Implementation Unit now invites eligible consultants to indicate their interest in providing the services.Interested consultants must provide information indicating that they are qualified to perform the services (brochures, description of similar assignments, experience in similar conditions, availability of appropriate skills among staff, etc.).Consultants may associate to enhance their qualifications. A consultant will be selected in accordance with the procedures set out in the World Bank?s Guidelines: Selection and Employment of Consultants by World Bank Borrowers (May 2004). Interested consultants may obtain further information at the address below during office hours (from 0900 to 1800 hours).
Expressions of interest must be delivered to the address below by 12 May 2006

Anyone else think getting involved with the World Bank is a bad idea? They have ravaged the economies of many countries, not just from forcing them to pay off debts they couldn't possibly afford but by restructing the government policies as a result. It would then look like a funnel, where X country focuses on paying off their loan, while these new policies rape the land and leave it in shambles. 1998 Russia is a perfect example.  
This is a bit of an extreme account, but it has happened MANY times and continues to happen. Once they get their hooks in you, you better be prepared for a fight. I just hope nothing bad happens to Mongolia.
