EIIP - Capacity Building for Contracting

Institutional Assessment and Contractor Tracing: Cambodia Contractor’s Tracing Study

Project documentation | 07 January 2008
This Study aims to analyse the strategy for the capacity building projects for contracting in
construction, looking at small-scale labour-based contractors with regard to their further
development and success beyond the project frame and in the open market. Whether or not
the enabling environment has been developed such that these contractor firms survived
beyond the project frame and whether they were able to sustain themselves in the open
market and whether they still apply a local resource-based work approach. The aim of the
study is to highlight the issues of the development of the individual enterprises and
employability of trained staff and clarify what have been the main reasons for successes and
failures. This Study in Cambodia was carried out during June 2008.
