 The overall aim is to promote safe and sustainable rural access in Africa and Asia through research and knowledge sharing between participating countries and the wider community. Tendersontime, a leading business leading Tender Notice Portals is the first agency to report this notification.

The Prime Minister’s Office – Regional Administration and Local Government (PMO-RALG) set up the Local Government Transport Programme (LGTP) in 2007 with the aim of supporting rural development and poverty alleviation. In 2009, PMO-RALG submitted a request to AfCAP for assistance with the implementation of demonstration road sites in Tanzania.
To that end, a number of road trials have been constructed in Tanzania under the former administration and supported by AfCAP. These trial sections were designed to demonstrate and verify different options in design, material utilisation and construction methods, particularly for low-volume roads. Examples of existing road trails include:
• Bago to Talawanda road in the Bagamoyo District of the Pwani Region.
• Lawate to Kibongoto road in the Siha District of the Kilimanjaro Region.

A review of the outcomes of all road trials constructed in Tanzania will be necessary. Some of the road trials have been monitored over a period of time and should therefore have good as-built information and performance data available that can be used as a benchmark to assess future performance. However, the available performance data is not consistent between projects and over the monitoring periods. Also, the establishment of these road trials may not necessarily have been geared towards providing sufficient data that will enable researchers to assess the full impact of all factors influencing the performance of pavements (such as traffic and environmental data). Hence, the extraction of information for back analysis may be difficult without a framework for guidance.
ReCAP, managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd, is seeking proposals from suitably qualified organisations to implement a project entitled: Long Term Pavement Performance Monitoring of Existing Trial Sections and Implementation of Regional Guidelines for Establishing and Monitoring Trial Sections in Tanzania.
The objective of the assignment is to carry out a review of the existing trial sections; refine and implement the existing regional protocols for establishment; and monitor road trial sections during the implementation of monitoring surveys. Capacity building and mentoring by the service provider are key elements of the assignment, hence the activities will be carried out mainly by researchers and technicians from PO-RALG’s Local Government Infrastructure and Transport Research Centre with support and close collaboration from the service provider.
Interested tenderers are advised that the indicative budget available for this contract is a total of GBP 160,000.
This tender process is open to any organisation that meets the criteria detailed in the tender documentation. There are no restrictions with regards to nationality or country of registration.
