Project status

At LB level, following repeated appeals, the public procurement procedure for external project management was finalized. This situation led to major delays in the physical implementation of the project. The project implementation was also delayed due to some technical issues identified by LB in regard to the two investment objectives envisaged to be realised within the project (open museum and road to the Cliff Church).

At this stage, most of the public procurements on behalf of LB were launched and moreover, some of the contracts were already awarded. However, the physical implementation of the main activities did not register significant progress.

Beneficiary 2 awarded with delays the public procurement contract for elaboration of the technical design and works execution. Currently, the works’ execution is ongoing from July 2018 and it is expected to be implemented during 20 months.

Considering the registered delays at project level, both project partners requested extension of the project implementation period. The requested for addendum related to the extension of the project implementation period is under verification.
