Assignment Title : Provision of Consulting Services to Verify the Network Performance of the Mobile Operators’ Network
Reference No. (as per Procurement Plan): C1.1.22
The Government of the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (Government) has undertaken telecommunications sector reforms in order to:
- increase by tenfold access to quality telecommunication services;
- make services affordable for its citizens; and
- develop the required ICT infrastructure in Myanmar that will facilitate inclusive growth and poverty reduction.
With the reform process undertaken in the Telecom Sector, Myanma Post and Telecommunications (MPT)’s long lasting monopoly is being replaced by a competitive market structure consisting of multiple operators. Telenor Myanmar Limited, Ooredoo Myanmar Limited and Telecom International Myanmar co., Ltd (MyTel) were awarded Nationwide Telecommunications Services Licenses. The Nationwide Telecommunications Services License holder shall fulfill the Minimum Geographic Coverage Commitments for mobile Voice and mobile Data as well as the Quality of Service (QoS) Commitment.
Given that the regulator needs to ensure that the Licensees (four operators) have fulfilled the commitments of their licensees, there is need to do the drive test and QoS measurement.
The Government has received support under the World Bank financed Telecommunications Sector Reform Project to hire the consultants for the drive test and QoS measurement. The activity described in these Terms of Reference is to support PTD to do drive test and QoS measurement and to analyze whether the licensees meet their Geographic Coverage commitment and QoS commitment based on results that has got from drive test and QoS measurement.
The MOTC now invites eligible firms or consortiums to indicate their interest in providing the Services. Interested Consultants should provide information demonstrating that they have the required qualifications and relevant experience to perform the Services.
A Consultant will be selected in accordance with the Selection Based on Consultants’ Qualification as set out in the Consultant Guidelines.
