  1. Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) has allocated funds to be used for the acquisition of the consultancy services described below.
  2. Kampala Capital City Authority now invites eligible individual consultants to submit sealed expressions of interest for the provision of consultancy services to conduct an update of the resettlement action plan (RAP) for the proposed Kampala City Roads Rehabilitation project. The project, a credit from the African Development Bank (AfDB) is for the reconstructing and or upgrading of approximately 67km of roads with Non-Motorized Transport (NMT) tracks and associated on-street and off-street parking areas and a number of signalised junctions. The Government of the Republic of Uganda represented by Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) identified the need for the reconstruction, widening and upgrading from gravel to bitumen standard some selected City roads as well as improvement of junctions to improve the current mobility situation in Kampala in order to achieve sustainable economic development. This is in line with Kampala Capital City Authority's mandate to ensure that the City's road infrastructure is maintained and improved to acceptable motorable standards in order to facilitate smooth flow of traffic.

    KCCA undertook a RAP during the design of Kampala roads during KIIDP. However, with the prospect of funding from African Development Bank, the RAP for the roads proposed for the rehabilitation and or upgrading needs to be updated to reflect the current situation.

The expected delivery is for the Consultant to prepare and submit an inception and updated RAP report to the Client (KCCA) which together with the AfDB shall be reviewed for approval and acceptance. The assignment shall be completed within (30 days/4 weeks).
