The technical assessments kicked off in Montserrado County recently with the Agency's technical team expected to visit the 17 electoral districts before rolling out to the remaining fourteen subdivisions to complete the process in preparation for procurement.
In 2012/2013, the government allotted US$2,341.00 million for 49 sub-projects in ten counties; LACE has already completed 21 sub-projects that include guest houses, Gboveh High School laboratory in Bong County, town halls, box culverts, youth centers and schools while 15 sub-projects are ongoing at various stages, seven sub-projects pending contract award and the remaining are undergoing procurement.
The Legislative Support Project is funded by the Government of Liberia to assist representatives and senators in meeting the development needs in the various districts and counties.
