Participatory Management

MACP is built upon the basic principle of Participatory Management which envisages that the Project is to be primarily driven by the beneficiary / community at all levels. This logically implies that the beneficiary / community shall have oversight over the Project during the entire phase which includes planning, implementation and consolidation. In the post consolidation phase the Project shall be self sustainable and therefore the activities therein would be replicable.

To translate this principle into reality, the Project has provided for, that the beneficiary organization shall decide on the entire planning of the Project viz. the identification of activities to be undertaken, infrastructure that need to be erected and the same will be approved by the GB of the Co-operative Society / APMC / Producer Association. The procurement at the level of Producers Associations, for the infrastructure necessary for establishment of FCSCs, will be through community procurement as per the guidelines of the WB. For the execution of all these activities the PCU shall provide all necessary assistance to the PIU during the entire Project

The Project will also have many activities which shall have to be implemented by the PIU and farmers organizations / implementation agency, which may include civil works or livelihood activities. Since there will be dual implementation mechanism in shape of the PIU and the farmers organization / implementing agencies, that the Project design has ensured that there are adequate safeguards and controls built in to provide control and monitoring of the Project components to both the implementing partners.

Accordingly the Project has provided for, that in all the tenders which will be finalized by the PIU, there shall be the President of the concerned beneficiary organization (APMC/ Panchayat / FCSCs) or his representative as a member of the Tender Committee, who shall be present during the tender opening and finalization if the said member chooses to do so and sign the tender proceedings. However, the absence of the concerned member from the tender meetings will not be a reason for postponement of decision making. Similarly, before any payments are made to the contractors, it will be mandatory for the PIU to obtain a certificate from the Chairman / Chief Executive Officer of the concerned beneficiary organization to the effect that the work has been executed as per the design and estimate.
