Educational Facility Condition Assessment Consultant

USAID/Ghana’s Education Office is looking to contract with an engineering firm or qualified Consultant to provide Educational Facility Condition Assessment of education buildings and infrastructure.


The assessment must lead to the determination of whether the subject facilities are safe for occupancy.

BACKGROUND

In 2011, the United States Government, through USAID/Ghana, signed a Fixed Amount Reimbursement Agreement (FARA) with the Government of Ghana, through the Ministry of Education Funds and Procurement Management Unit (MoE/FPMU), for the Construction Equipping of Schools, Toilets and District Education Offices and for Conducting Substantial Completion Inspection of School Facilities Constructed through the USAID TAP Program.”

Educational Facility Condition Assessment Scope of Work

Based on the history of substandard construction of the facilities, USAID/Ghana, in agreement with FPMU, deemed it necessary to perform a new assessment to determine the current conditions of 50 out of the 184 facilities funded by USAID, to determine their safety for occupancy.

The consultant, under the direction of USAID/Ghana, will participate jointly with FPMU to perform the required investigation and inspections to determine the safety of the selected facilities.

Although the consultant will be working side-by-side with FPMU, their technical opinions and findings must be their own and not biased or influenced by other parties.

However, the consultants are encouraged to have a fluid exchange of opinions, information, and technical facts with FPMU during the assessment.

For the logistical aspects of the work under this contract (e.g., meetings, site visits, access to facilities, tools, etc.), the consultant will coordinate with FPMU to ensure adequacy of planning and execution of the tasks under this contract.

Finally, after completion of information gathering and site visits, the consultant shall provide technical opinion of what actions or conditions are necessary to return the damaged structures to useful assets.
