Improvements Of Infrastructure And Equipment

Development of Infrastructure and Equipment Improvement Plan
It should be noted that the high demand of infrastructure improvement is not only a result of its long-term use, but also is a reflection of the insufficient allocation of maintenance costs. Many offices, rest houses were found to be dilapidated and decayed, indicating the insufficiency of maintenance. Infrastructure and equipment gaps were identified based on this current demand, the deployment of forestry officials, and the infrastructure and equipment required to support the expected level of field activities of the Project.

The Project, a survey of physical infrastructure and equipment under the control of the Forest Department will be conducted to verify the proposal and develop an infrastructure and equipment improvement plan. The results of the survey will also be used to update the asset inventory of the Department. Since the recurrent costs for office and equipment maintenance must be secured, the proposed office and equipment upgrades will be carefully examined from the viewpoints of maintenance cost, engineering options to minimize these costs, installation of information technology in the infrastructure, their contribution to the efficient implementation of the Project, and schedule of construction and procurement. The results and recommendations will be reflected in the infrastructure and equipment improvement plan for the immediate implementation of infrastructure development.

Forest colony and other related residence related infrastructure for the Forest Department staff is categorized as ineligible portion of the Project.
