The role and expectations from Technical Officers have changed radicallyin view of the reforms brought in by the A.P. Government in the Irrigation sector. Keeping in view ofthe objective of the National Training Policy, WALAMTARI has planned for Training of Technical Officersthrough Peer Group Training Strategy.This manual is reportedly prepared through consultative workshops (Training Need Assessment,Module & Material Development workshop and refined in Trainers Training workshop). The materialdeals with various tenets of Scrutiny of Estimates, Tender process and Noting & Drafting Skills.I hope this this material will be useful for all the Technical Officers in properly discharging theirduties and thereby contributing to the performance enhancement of I & CAD department.I congratulate the staff of CADA, I&CAD and WALAMTARI who have contributed to thedevelopment of the material. I also congratulate WALAMTARI for initiating Capacity Building of theTechnical Officers with the financial support from JAICA funded Andhra Pradesh Irrigation and LivelihoodImprovement Project (APILIP).Date : December 2010 ( Dr. Prasanta Mahapatra )CommissionerCADA & Prl.
