The Gambia migrated fromthis situation when it joins the ACE Consortium that provided a submarine landing station from December 2012. The potentialcapacity available to the country is 10Gbits and since its operations, the capacity activated has increased from 3 STM1s in 2012 to5STM4s in 2015.Despite the fact that retail prices are yet to be reduced, mobilepenetration rate stands at 117% while Internet is22% by the end of the first quarter 2015. The lack of access to low price and high quality telecommunications services is a factorthat limits the potential ofmost African countries to create jobs, expand production of goods andservices and trade competitivelywith the rest of the world. Hence efforts are being made by The Gambia to enhance its infrastructure and services portfolio toprovide available and affordable broadband to itscitizens.

The Ministry ofBasic and Secondary Education now invites eligible firmsto indicate their interest in providing the services. Interested consultants must provide information indicating that they arequalified to perform the services (description of similar assignments, experience in similar contracts, availability of appropriateskills among staff, etc.). Consultants may associate to enhance theirqualifications. A consultant will beselected in accordance with the procedures set out in the World Bank's Guidelines: Selection and Employment of Consultants by World BankBorrowers (currentedition). Interested eligible consultants may obtain further information fromthe Projects Coordination Unit, Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education,Willy Thorpe Place Building, Banjul, The Gambia. DEVELOPMENT OFCOMMUNICATION STRATEGY FOR THE MINISTRY OFBASICAND SECONDARY EDUCATION  TERMS OFREFERENCE Background: The Gambia is located in West Africaand is bordered on three sides by Senegal. It has an estimated population of about 1.8 million (the last population census wascarried out in 2003) of which more than 60 percent are below the age of 24. The overall poverty headcount indexis estimated at 48.4 percent (upper poverty line: US$1.25 a day),[1]and 36.7 percent (lower poverty line: US$1.00)although the poverty headcount index declinedbetween 2003 and 2010, income inequality has not and is likely to increase.  In 2010,the poorest quintile of the population consumed only 5.6 percent of overall expenditures, while the wealthiest quintile wasconsuming 46.5 percent.  Unemployment primarily affects those who are young, urban,female, and better educated ? reflecting the weakness and lack of sophistication of the country's formaleconomy[2]. In the education sector, externalfinancing comprised more than 35percent of total education budget in 2009 thus showing a strong reliance on foreign aid. Thedevelopment partners (DPs) also played a key role in mitigating the impact of last year's drought on vulnerable families andproviding support to farmers. In addition to an economic rebound and boosting growth, development will necessarily have to includesound investments in education, health, and social protection. The new ESSP II 2014 ? 2022 provides a common platform with a strategic direction towards theimplementation of the revised education policy for basic and secondary education and the new policy for tertiaryand highereducation from 2013 and beyond. The Government has alsocompleted a mediumterm plan (2014-2017) anchored within the ESSP II to spell out the distinct priorities to be implemented in theshort and medium terms. The new strategy proposes a programmaticshift from programs based mainly on cycles of education (basic education, secondary education, tertiary education, technicalvocational education and training (TVET), quality assurance and sector management) to a more results-oriented programming withemphasis on implementable interventions within priority areas. The new programs are as follows: Access & Equity, Quality andRelevance, Research & Development, Science, Technology & Innovation and Sector Management. Each of these programs haspolicy priority areas that are linked to corresponding indicators, outputs and results. The traditional gender disparitieshave been eliminated in the early grades, and since 2006 girls have outnumbered boys in intake to grade 1 (50.8:49.2).  Howeverboys perform slightly better and are more likely to progress through the system. Atthe upper basic level, the GER stands at 68.9 percent for boys and 67.3 percent for girls, and the completion rate stands at 66.3percent for boys and 63.2 percent for girls. In a recent early grade reading assessment (EGRA), the consolidated score for girlswas 48.5 percent, compared with 51.9 percent for boys. In lower basic education, the GER is110 percent in region 1, but only 58 percent in region 5.  Disparities are alsoobserved across socio-economic status with wealthier students outperforming their poorer peers in the EGRA, with consolidatedscores of 59.1 and 48.5 respectively. In addition,the wealthiest students consume eight times more public education resources thanthe poorest. Enrollment in senior secondaryeducation has increased substantially since 2004, bringing the GER from 22 percent to 39 percent in 2013.  However accessremains constrained by the availability of places. Enrollment of boysis higher than that of girls(41.3 percent compared with 36.8 percent). Family income is strongly related to access to senior secondary education, as only 3percent of the poorest quintile enroll, compared to 50 percent of the wealthiest quintile. The share households contribute isparticularly high at the upper basic, senior secondary and TVET levels. At the lower basic level, 46 percent of education costs arecovered by households despitea school fee abolition policy in lower basic education. Even in public schools, private expendituresare high with informal levies including charges for registration fees and instructional materials. These informal costs ofeducation form a barrier in terms of access to schooling, particularly for the poorest families. The MOBSE through its dynamicleadership capacity has gained support for its education reforms. This is reflected in openness toexternal scrutiny, and ininvolving Teacher Unions, external partnersand other stakeholders. The education development partnersare meeting with Government on a semi-annual basis to review progress towards the achievement of objectives as laid out in thenational education strategy. This provides for a strong exchange and discussion of sectoral challenges, results achieved, andrecommendations for improvement, The Government is also carrying outregular visits to discuss withparents, communities, and education stakeholders through the CCMs that are being held every twomonths in a different region of the country.
