Provide independent construction inspection to ensure that quality construction work through sub-contractors is carried out in a timely manner.
Provide independent verification/validation of completed school infrastructure.
Provide strategic and operational guidance to address any defects or deviations from original designs and standards.
Identify where the construction processes by sub-contractors are not delivering work to the required standards and advise on how this can be improved.
Act as an independent mechanism to provide advice on the performance of IMC in managing sub-contracts and sub-contractors' performance.
Once completed, infrastructure is handed over to the relevant provincial government departments i.e. Elementary and Secondary Education Department (E&SED) in KP and School Education Department (SED) in Punjab for operations and maintenance.
