Coastal Towns Environmental Infrastructure Project (CTEIP) (Revised)

Project Implementation Strategy

LGED is the Lead Executing Agency (EA) for the project, and DPHE is co-executing agency for water supply and sanitation components. Pourashavas are the implementing agencies (IAs).  A Project Management Unit (PMU) will be established in LGED headquarters, consisting of a Project Director (LGED) and three full-time Deputy Project Directors (DPDs) as follows: (i) DPD for municipal infrastructure, LGED, (ii) DPD for governance and institutional capacity building, LGED, and (iii) DPD for water supply and sanitation, DPHE. The DPD from DPHE will sit separately in the DPHE building to maximize their technical resources during implementation.

The PMU will be responsible for engaging and managing the consultants under the Project: (i) Project Management and Supervision Consultants (PMSC) and (ii) Institutional Capacity and Community Development Consultants (ICCDS). The project Pourashavas will be the Implementing Agencies, and will establish a Project Implementation Unit (PIU) within the Pourashava structure. Local LGED and DPHE offices will provide technical support to the PIUs.

The PMU will engage a Detailed Design Service (DDS) Consultant under Project Design Advance. Implementation experience in Bangladesh has shown that projects typically face severe start-up delays as a result of recruiting project implementation consultants (for detailed engineering design, preparation of civil works contract tender documents, and project management support) after ADB loan approval. To mitigate this risk, these tasks will be initiated by means of this new ADB financing instrument known as a Project Design Advance (PDA).

An Inter-ministerial Project Steering Committee at national level, chaired by the Secretary LGD, will provide overall policy guidance to the project. The Committee will include key government stakeholders, including local government representatives from the participating Pourashavas. The Steering Committee can co-opt members, if deemed necessary.
