Additional information
Additional information: Background
Despite its strategic location at the heart of Central Asia, Uzbekistan today is characterized by low market access and connectivity. High transportation costs and long distances to reach major economic centers limits Uzbekistan's ability to exploit its vast agriculture potential to export to large consumer markets in China and Europe, as well as to integrate into the global value chain.

The Government of Uzbekistan (GoU) is currently implementing far-reaching reforms to improve the efficiency of public sector investments and service delivery mechanisms in various sectors. GoU also plans to improve connectivity both domestically and internationally, foster greater regional cooperation, and improve domestic connectivity and its hinterland access.

The rehabilitation of the regional road network is a priority for GoU. To support this priority, GoU signed a loan agreement with the World Bank (IDA) to implement the Regional Roads Development Project (RRDP), which will rehabilitate and improve around 300km of local roads the in the Tashkent Region and in the three regions of the Ferghana Valley. Feasibility studies and engineering designs were prepared by local design institutes. Environmental and social safeguard documents were also prepared in parallel with the feasibility studies in July 2016. However, due to delays in the tendering process, the social safeguard documents will need to be updated before works can be carried out.
Objective of Assignment
The objective of this assignment is to support the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) within the Republican Road Fund (RRF) to improve the quality of project implementation. For this, RRF intends to use part of the loan to mobilize an individual consultant to assist in the process of procuring and managing contracts financed under RRDP: (i) assisting the PIU's Procurement Specialist in all aspects of the procurement process; (ii) assisting the PIU, particularly the Director and Highway Engineer in implementing, monitoring and supervising civil works contracts under RRDP; and (iii) assisting the PIU in overall project management and the preparation of required progress reports.
