Date Jan. 15, 2011

The tender for execution of works has been run for three times because the offers received in the first two rounds were not acceptable

Delay in the commencement of works

Actions taken

In order to reduce the delay in awarding the contract for execution of works, the second and third tender has been published and run straight after the previous tender was declared cancelled

The firm awarded with the supervision of works contract has encountered a number of difficulties in obtaining a full registration at the Afghan Investment Support Agency, necessary to operate in the country, due to a fiscal litigation with the Medium Tax Office of the Ministry of Finance of Afghanistan.

Risk of an inadequate monitoring of the works with relative impact on the road construction quality due to a non-continuative execution of the supervision.

Actions taken

The works supervision has been temporary performed by the MoPW with the support and certification services of UNOPS, hence guaranteeing a proper monitoring of the construction activities
