ASSIGNMENT DESCRIPTION

The World Bank plans to create a Broadband Strategies Toolkit for developing countries in three phases from 2010-2012.

The Handbook will comprise extended summaries of all seven planned modules.

To this end, the Bank wishes to hire a consulting firm (Consultant) that will act as Project Coordinator for the first phase of the project. The Consultant will be responsible for shepherding the first phase from inception to completion, including coordinating inputs from the Bank, from other consultancies, and from a wider community of practitioners, academics and subject experts.
