Ethiopia Allocates Funds for 13 New Universities

The Council of Ministers has approved an additional 1.86 billion birr for the ongoing construction of 13 new universities.
The new funding agreement comes following a rescheduling of the project by the German implementing agency after it suffered various delays. The government has established a University Capacity Building Program, which is regulated by Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ministry of Capacity Building, for the new institutions being built across the country.
The MoE hired the Germen Technical Cooperation International Service (GTZ IS) in 2005 as an implementing agent for the 13 low cost projects. GTZ IS is responsible for providing on job training for local contractors, together with managing and overseeing implementation of the projects.
The government has been paying 3,000 birr per square metre for the management and implementation contract and it has been covering 20 percent of the administrative cost of GTZ IS; 10 percent for building capacities of local contractors; and another 10 percent for its services, according to sources.
The completion date was projected for September 2009, however, different constraints, including a shortage of construction materials, delayed it. Subsequent to these problems, it was GTZ IS’ responsibility to evaluate challenges and set another timetable, Mrtin Hansen executive director of GTZIS Ethiopia told Capital.
“In line with this we made an evaluation in February 2010 that led us to project 2012 for overall completion of the project” he said.
The extension of the project has affected over 80 local contractors that have been working on the project for the last four years. The contractors could not obtain their payments for the last three months, which prompted them to complain to GTZ IS.
Wondwesen Kiflue, state minister of MoE and director of UCBP confirmed the delays of the project and the contractors’ payments.
“We have been making budget adjustments. That is why the delays occurred,” Wondwesen said.
The hold-up occurred due to financing problems, however, the Government of Ethiopia and GTZ IS have now resolved these and approved 1.86 billion birr for this and the coming fiscal year, added Mrtin.
