MANAGEMENT UNIT (PMU)
Project Management Unit (PMU) as the Implementation Unit under the Maharashtra
State Agricultural Marketing Board (MSAMB) which will be the Implementing
Agency (IA). The EA will ensure the overall implementation under AIDIP
by focusing more on facilitation than “hands-on” implementation, i.e.
subcontracting of specific activities, requiring special professional
expertise, such as supporting the bidding process, the preparation of
Detailed Project Reports (DPRs) for the next IVCs including a backward
linkage program that will ensure gender mainstreaming, promotion of private
sector responses, and implementation of capacity development activities
along the value chain.
The PMU will be headed by a Project Director (PD) that will be deputed
from the government or from the market. The PD will have the authority
to make decisions on behalf of the EA management head. The PD will be
supported by Deputy Directors as Sector Specialists for core areas of
Marketing, Horticulture, Finance and Administration and Infrastructure.
