Invitation to tender for "Long Term Pavement Performance Monitoring of Existing Trial Sections and Implementation of Regional Guidelines for Establishing and Monitoring Trial Sections in Tanzania"

The Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) is a six-year programme of applied research and knowledge dissemination funded by a grant from the UK Government through the Department for International Development (DFID). The overall aim is to promote safe and sustainable rural access in Africa and Asia through research and knowledge sharing between participating countries and the wider community.

The Prime Minister's Office - Regional Administration and Local Government (PMO-RALG) set up the Local Government Transport Programme (LGTP) in 2007 with the aim of supporting rural development and poverty alleviation. In 2009, PMO-RALG submitted a request to AfCAP for assistance with the implementation of demonstration road sites in Tanzania.

To that end, a number of road trials have been constructed in Tanzania under the former administration and supported by AfCAP. These trial sections were designed to demonstrate and verify different options in design, material utilisation and construction methods, particularly for low-volume roads. Examples of existing road trails include:

• Bago to Talawanda road in the Bagamoyo District of the Pwani Region.
• Lawate to Kibongoto road in the Siha District of the Kilimanjaro Region.

A review of the outcomes of all road trials constructed in Tanzania will be necessary. Some of the road trials have been monitored over a period of time and should therefore have good as-built information and performance data available that can be used as a benchmark to assess future performance. However, the available performance data is not consistent between projects and over the monitoring periods. Also, the establishment of these road trials may not necessarily have been geared towards providing sufficient data that will enable researchers to assess the full impact of all factors influencing the performance of pavements (such as traffic and environmental data). Hence, the extraction of information for back analysis may be difficult without a framework for guidance.


ReCAP, managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd, is seeking proposals from suitably qualified organisations to implement a project entitled: Long Term Pavement Performance Monitoring of Existing Trial Sections and Implementation of Regional Guidelines for Establishing and Monitoring Trial Sections in Tanzania.

The objective of the assignment is to carry out a review of the existing trial sections; refine and implement the existing regional protocols for establishment; and monitor road trial sections during the implementation of monitoring surveys. Capacity building and mentoring by the service provider are key elements of the assignment; hence the activities will be carried out mainly by researchers and technicians from PO-RALG's Local Government Infrastructure and Transport Research Centre with support and close collaboration from the service provider.

Interested tenderers are advised that the indicative budget available for this contract is a total of GBP 160,000.

This tender process is open to any organisation that meets the criteria detailed in the tender documentation.

There are no restrictions with regards to nationality or country of registration.

Invitation to tender for "Evaluation of the Effect of Road Condition on the Quality of Agricultural Produce"

The Research for Community Access Partnership (ReCAP) is a six-year programme of applied research and knowledge dissemination funded by a grant from the UK Government through the Department for International Development (DFID). The overall aim is to promote safe and sustainable rural access in Africa and Asia through research and knowledge sharing between participating countries and the wider community.

The principal ReCAP Project Research Themes are Rural Infrastructure, Transport Services and Cross-cutting Issues, within which there are a number of sub-themes, including sustainable and economical provision of infrastructure; rural mobility and measuring the requirements for, and benefits of, rural roads and transport services. In the context of these sub-themes recent small-scale research has demonstrated that the organisation of rural transport is critically important to the whole agricultural supply chain, from farmer to final consumer. Relevant authorities tend to respond with improving roads and tracks once traffic volumes have reached certain thresholds. There is usually little cost benefit analysis, or understanding how seasonally impassable roads adversely affect agricultural marketing or the social demands of the rural population, especially the small holder farmers. There is a need for more research into pro-active intervention into the initial stages of the agricultural supply chain at both local authority and small-scale farmer levels.

ReCAP, managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd, is seeking proposals from suitably qualified organisations to implement a project entitled: Evaluation of the Effect of Road Condition on the Quality of Agricultural Produce in Kenya and Tanzania.

This project is ultimately concerned with the cost-beneficial improvement of "First Mile" access and the transport services associated with moving harvest produce on the initial stages of movement from the farm to established road access. A key element of this will be research into the cost-beneficial provision of suitable all season access going into strategic small holder farming areas. The research must be relevant to the agricultural produce and the vehicles required transporting it and having a clear appreciation of implications for all small holder groups including women.

Interested tenderers are advised that the indicative budget available for this contract is a total of GBP 390,000.

This tender process is open to any organisation that meets the criteria detailed in the tender documentation. There are no restrictions with regards to nationality or country of registration.

Interested organisations can request the full tender documents by sending an e-mail to recap.procurement@cardno.com with copy to Edson.Madeira@cardno.com, stating the project reference No.RAF2109A in the subject line.

All submissions of proposals must be received no later than 21st November 2016, 17:00 UK time.
