Open Letter to Reconstitute Implementing NGO (INGO) Selection Criteria for ADB Supported Post Literacy and Continuing Education Project. Dear Colleagues and Friends,As you know that Ministry of Primary and Mass Education has been implementing PLCED-2 project at various districts of the country and accordingly BNFE invites EOI from NGOs through newspapers on last March 20, 2008 at Daily Star. We have seen that “NGO will be selected in accordance with the procedure set out by the GOB and ADB” and 01 INGO will select for 01 district, INGO may include associate service provider/associate NGOs.” We have clear concern to these points, because by this clause last 05 years DNFE become down as BNFE and most the contract maintained unfair business. Few selected NGOs who have closed contact with PIMU and also ruling government parties have got priority and make syndicates and monopoly in NGO sector. PLCED is a movement for eradicates illiteracy from the society. But under the above-mentioned clause few big & business NGOs based in Dhaka got priority to select as INGO and their followers will handle and control the entire fund and that will be encourage the syndicates & monopoly business. ADAB Chittagong raised the issues to ADB and MoPME and appeal to reconstitutes this clause and NGOs must be selected through open biding process and capacity, skill and have past working experience with the community & have set up in the working locations will be given preference. Local initiatives will gives priority and more then 10-15 NGOs should have opportunity to work with in 01 district and local NGOs/CBOs must included in the package. As per our appeal MoPME has made a reply to the ADB and they claimed the “INGOs with adequate functional capacity have already been selected for the 1st Phase in a transparent manner and selection of NGOs for the 2nd Phase is under process”. The copy of the letter is enclosed for your information. The MoPME claimed as sometime desired by the ADB and some times Project Proposal (PP) approved by the ECNEC. it was well reputed the 1st phase of PLCED-1&2 has lots of mismanagement and irregularities to recruits NGOs. Most of the NGOs selected in 1st phase from Dhaka for all over Bangladesh due to easy for transecting unfair money. If 01 implementing NGO will be selected other NGOs will deprived & the INGO will influence the whole project activities, making money without ending tasks, there will be no checks and balance for quality of works, none will be created movement for eradication of illiteracy and these were happened in last 6 years in NGO sector, NGO monopoly business groups was holding maximum fund and maintained unfair business and the a few ill-motivated Government officials benefited from the process and NGOs are treated as business and some times blaming for corruption. If non local NGOs will select, they will quit their set up after end of the project and there will big question for sustainability and follow up of the project activities. If any NGO invest money for selecting NGOs or providing bank guarantee, band draft etc, they have must be trying to gain profit. But through the clause the Government trying to NGOs becomes commercial firms, which is not expectable. ADAB Chittagong has also demanding the present NGO procurement procedure is not suitable for NGOs and have opportunity to misuses of power, corruption involvement and monopoly by few business NGOs holding maximum funds. Same public procurement regulation act 2003 not applicable for NGOs and at the same time to business people, and it needed develop separate procurement policy for NGOs and social sector. The present NGO selection process can easily maintain unfair business for selecting NGOs, involved a-large amount of money handling for NGO selection. If they select more NGOs it is difficult to continue unfair business, so rather number size is a few is good to do so. As you may aware, last 4-party resume ADB was suspended fund for ex-DNFE project for corruption in NGO selection and DNFE become down BNFE but they are still following bad practices of last Government. Due to absence of ADAB as NGO apex body was blocked & restrained to act as coordinating body for NGOs by the last 4-party alliance and its allies big business NGOs, they can easily continue their monopoly business smoothly. You have seen in other projects i.e NNP project, they have invited EOI and showing NGOs selection procedure maintaining transference and credibility. After end of the selection process, we have seen the existing NGOs who are selected in last 4-party ruling government resume are selected. The VGD programme under MOWCA, CDMP under MoFDM, and BEHRUWC project under MoPME supported by UNICEF, GFATAM Malaria Control Programme under WHO and health ministry etc maintained same procedure to select as NGOs. There are so many potentials NGOs have capacity and past working experience to carryout the said project activities. They are awarded due to not able to continue the unfair business. NGO selection now maintaining Public Procurement Act 2003, which is treated NGOs as business party and NGOs will select through analyzing asset, fund and liaison basis. As a result many local and small NGOs become helpless, not able to support local community. If any project implement by the local NGOs and through local people, the result will sustain and cost will minimize and they have social responsibility to the local people. What we have to seen to selecting NGO for Government projects;§ NGOs based in Dhaka or have set up Dhaka§ NGOs have large amount of micro credit fund § NGO have multistoried building, asset, modern equipment & communication facilities§ NGOs have good contact & liaison with ruling government parties§ NGOs have capacity to handling cash money or have partnership with PKSF, banks§ NGOs have liaison with government officials, who making unfair business.§ Many projects required Bank draft/DD to discourage small NGOs§ Some big NGOs making syndicates and control whole NGO oriented projects.§ Continue unfair business, same NGOs selected many projects in many places and it maintaining a chain who deal making money§ No real NGO representative in project selection committees, § Business NGOs awarded, instead of humanitarian or right based NGOs Now this is the time for raise voice, please send to letter to Chief Advisor of Bangladesh to;- reconstitute the NGO selection criteria under PLCED-1 &2 under BNFE- develop separate procurement policy for NGO, stop NGO selection by PPR-2003- activate NGO coordinating body who protect rights of local NGOs Otherwise all local initiatives & philanthropy will fall down and there will be big social uncertainty, unrest will hamper the whole social progress of the nation. Yours sincerely, S M Nazer HossainChairpersonADAB Chittagong Chapter

Hi.

Hope you enjoy reading it.

A guy walks into a bar and asks the bartender, “If I present you a actually good trick, will you give me a no cost drink?” The bartender considers it, then agrees. The guy reaches into his pocket and pulls out a tiny rat. He reaches into his other pocket and pulls out a tiny piano. The rat stretches, cracks his knuckles, and proceeds to play the blues.

Following the man finished his drink, he asked the bartender, “If I display you an even far better technique, will you give me free of charge drinks for that rest with the evening?” The bartender agrees, considering that no strategy could possibly be far better than the initial. The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out a small rat. He reaches into his other pocket and pulls out a small piano. The rat stretches, cracks his knuckles, and proceeds to play the blues. The man reaches into another pocket and pulls out a modest bullfrog, who begins to sing along using the rat’s music.

Although the guy is enjoying his beverages, a stranger confronts him and offers him $100,000.00 for the bullfrog. “Sorry,” the guy replies, “he’s not for sale.” The stranger raises the offer you to $250,000.00 cash up front. “No,” he insists, “he’s not for sale.” The stranger once more raises the offer you, this time to $500,000.00 money. The guy finally agrees, and turns the frog more than to the stranger in exchange for the funds.

“Are you insane?” the bartender demanded. “That frog could are actually worth millions to you, and also you let him go for a mere $500,000!” “Don’t be concerned about it.” the guy answered. “The frog was definitely nothing unique. You see, the rat’s a ventriloquist.”
