(Selected comments from those who have come to know the firm)
"Since assuming its responsibilities
(Apr. 99), the TAP Unit (Read RMC) has become an integral
component of the functions and operations of the Project Administration
Unit (PAU). Accordingly, it is suggested that the RMC (TAP
Unit) contract be continued from April 2002 to August 2003
to parallel the timeline of the current PAU contract with
the Ministry. This extension would also provide the Ministry
with additional time to establish a local counterpart capacity
for the activities of the TAP Unit". (Approved by IADB
