Poor quality of study and design documents of water supply schemes and sanitation facilities presented to WRDF from the TWUs.

When actual construction activities started in all sites proposed for construction of water supply schemes and sanitation facilities, some excess or omitted items were observed in the design document and it took significant time to review and improve study and design documents by construction supervision consultants

Actions taken

Close supervision and consultation with key stakeholders (WRDF, Italian Cooperation, consultants, contractors TWUs, RWBs) in order to find remedial solutions to the problems encountered.

Some contractors have showed weakness in financial capacity and slowed the construction works by waiting release of payment for which they have accomplished activities.

Delay in the construction works

Actions taken

Speed up payment process for the contractor after a close supervision of the work done

In Durame supervision consultant has showed reluctance to seriously advise client when some additional works beyond the contract were encountered. It didn’t give due attention to cost effectiveness and innovative action when the project faced some problems.

Some works were in need of remedial measures after completion

Actions taken

WRDF in collaboration with Italian Cooperation provided to contractors remedial measures and amended contracts with concerned contractor
