Job Summary:

While technical engineering requirements for implementing on-farm subprojects are not anticipated, the higher cost and technically more complex ABE subprojects will require engineering input. Under the implementation process outlined in the PAM, private engineering entities existing in
Afghanistan will be responsible for preparing concept designs for each subproject involving
works. In progressing the evaluation of subproject proposals, detailed engineering designs,
and bills of quantity are required at feasibility level prior to the approval of subprojects. The
project will meet the cost of the consulting engineers to prepare these detailed designs and
construction supervision contracts. In order to carry out the technical due diligence required
for civil works structures, engineering expertise is required in house for efficient processing of
subproject proposals. Such expertise does not exist within MAIL.
The project requires the technical services of an engineer to review detailed
engineering designs and costs associated with works for proposed ABE
