General Guidelines for Acquisition and Construction of Branch Facilities

I/ Building Site:

The local officials know what is needed and where. They advise us as to a selection of one or more possible locations. The land is then provided by the local government.

II/ Building Design:

The building design is the one developed for the original site in Viet Nam. It has been successfully completed within budget capabilities. Among its features are placement of the library on the second floor as a protection against loss due to flooding, a disability access ramp, a distintive roof design, a meeting room on the first floor, fans, computer rooms, and a balcony outdoor reading area. All materials will be generally consistent with the materials list used on the Pho Thuan, Duc Pho District, Viet Nam project.

III/ Maintenance:

The community and school provide for the regular administration, maintenance, utilities, and security for the library.

IV/ Inventory of Titles, Computer Capacities, Maps, Charts and other Accouterments:

We will provide a base stock of books as set forth in an initial stocking list. This list is compiled upon recommendation of local ongoing plan for soliciting additional titles, upgrading adn expanding of computer capabilities, and adding to the store of maps and periodicals. Periodic contributions to the general library inventory will be to the extent possible given continuing fundraising and book drive efforts.

V/ Agreements:

The "Joint Agreement" used on the first library construction contains the standard terms adn conditions and will be used as the template for additional projects. It will be amended as deemed necessary by mutual agreement between Cambodian officals adn the Library of Cambodia Project to best insure the success of the project.

All agreements and contracts necessary to complete the project will be based on standards in compliance with national, provincial, and local laws and customs of the Kingdom of Cambodia.

VI/ Parties to the Project Acquisition, Building and Administration Process:

The Cambodian loal officials provide the names of contractors known to them to us. We have our Site Manager review the contractors and examples of their prior work. Local officials and the Site Manager, upon joint consulatation, make a final selection of the contractor upon completion of a closed bid process. Our Site Manager, in cooperation with local officals will oversee quality control. The Library of Cambodia Coordinator will also be involved in oversight of the construction.

VII/ Ongoing Association:

The Library of Cambodia Project, in cooperation with local officals, will continue with visits by donors, supporters, and associates to the Library in the future, after dedication, as we continue to build a relationship of mutual respect adn cooperation for the futures of Cambodia and America.
