Narrative Description of Project:The Eastern Indonesia Region (EIR) encompasses most of Indonesia except for the large islands of Sumatra and Java, and comprises some 160 Kabupaten (rural local governments, some very recently formed) and 26 Kota (municipalities) in 16 Provinces. Much of the region’s population is poor and is provided with limited infrastructure, although some parts are richly endowed with natural resources and have high Gross Regional Domestic Products.
The Regional Design and Supervision Consultants (RDSCs) will play a major role in supporting EIRTP-2 project management and implementation. A significant focus of the project will be an increased emphasis on achieving acceptable standards of construction quality for all civil works and a strengthened stance against corruption. The RDCSs will be in the “front line” of the attack on these major problems, and will have increased authority and responsibility, commensurate with strengthened role.
