Programme Implementation Structure

Programme Executing Agency

The programme is implemented by NPC as the executing agency. Full responsibility for programme implementation rests with the Permanent Secretary of the National Planning Commission (NPC). In the execution of functions, the NPC is supported by an experienced Programme Management Team.

Programme Management Team

A Programme Management Team (PMT) assists the NPC to execute the programme. The PMT is accountable for the execution of the Programme and is in charge of planning, implementation and general management of the Programme, including the accountancy of the disposition fund account.

The Programme Manager is responsible for the overall coordination of the Programme’s implementation supported by a management consultant team, procured through an international tender. The Programme Manager was a member of the feasibility study task force and was fully integrated into the PMT. This ensured the continuity of the project and preserved institutional memory.

The management consultant team includes four staff including a Team Leader, an engineer/architect to deal with the technical issues, a social scientist/rural development specialist to deal with the social and developmental issues, and a financial/administrative professional responsible for administration and the management of the disposition fund account.
