Project Planning and Development
Following the decentralization of the old Project Department of the Commission in 2014 into three Departments; Project Planning and Development (DPPD), Project Maintenance, and Project Monitoring & Evaluation Departments, the Project Planning and Development has the mandate to develop functional, efficient and cost effective capital projects in the Commission’s mandate areas. The department has the responsibilities to conceive, plan, develop, and process projects for procurement and compliance to specification, with adequate consideration for physical sustainability of the environment of the mandate areas.
These functions of the department are derived from the types of infrastructures being executed in the mandate areas and the conditions of consultants and contractor’s engagement. These functions include: Environmental Planning, Quality Planning, Cost Planning, Scheduling, Cost Estimation, Procurement Planning, Resources Planning, Quality Assurance, Contract Administration and Implementation.
