Croatia Receives Rehabilitation Assistance
The Community Infrastructure Rehabilitation Program (CIRP) used Stanley Consultants' electrical engineering expertise to help with small and medium-scale rehabilitation projects throughout the war-affected areas of Croatia,
The Community Infrastructure Rehabilitation Program (CIRP) provided a mechanism for undertaking small and medium-scale rehabilitation projects throughout the war-affected areas of Croatia, rural and urban, municipality, and village. The CIRP Project goal was to implement approximately 60 to 70 small and medium-scale individual subprojects under a Project Budget of approximately $11 million. The CIRP was implemented over a period of 24 months. The CIRP budget allocated approximately $9.2 million for infrastructure construction contracts.
The electrical engineer's primary responsibility was focusing on rehabilitation of rural electrical distribution systems in war-affected areas of Croatia. Duties included assisting and providing oversight for the engineering and design services and the construction management services required to manage, monitor, supervise, and certify payments for each of the construction and commodity subcontracts that were awarded under the Contract. The electrical engineer also monitored for compliance of the Construction Risk Management Program (CRMP) implemented by each subcontractor so the prime contractor could alert USAID (United States Agency for International Development) if there were significant changes taking place, and made recommendations on what action, if any, should be taken. In addition, the electrical engineer assisted expatriate and the local full-time project engineers in performing final inspections for compliance to a punch list and helped certify work for final payment, as well as wrote reports on the status of these projects.
