‘ANNEX

TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR THE PROJECT MANAGER (2006)

1.

The Project Manager, in cooperation with the Cambodian Armed Forces, will continue the work related to record-keeping and the management and security of weapons stocks and to developing policies, guidelines and practices in this area. To that end, the Project Manager will monitor the projects previously implemented in Military Region 1 (Stung Treng), Military Region 2 (Kampong Cham), Military Region 3 (Kampong Speu), Military Region 4 (Siem Reap), Military Region 5 (Battambang), the Special Military Region (Phnom Penh) and the Royal Gendarmerie. In close cooperation with the Ministry of National Defence, he will define and implement a further project on safe storage and registration of weapons of the Air Force and Navy. This will include the building of medium- and short-term storage facilities, training of the relevant personnel at all levels and the registration of all weapons in the centralised computer database of the Ministry of Defence. The implemented project is to include assistance, with the support of relevant experts, to the Government’s programme of public ceremonies for the destruction of surplus military weapons and, where appropriate, of collected weapons and of surplus weapons that may still be held by the army and police and security forces.

2.

When required the Project Manager will continue to advise, and where possible assist, the Government, international organisations and local NGO’s on issues relating to weapons security and to EU ASAC’s current and previous activities.

3.

The Project Manager will ensure that appropriate procedures are established for effective monitoring and evaluation of activities. To this end he will seek full cooperation from the Government of Cambodia and the police and security forces.

4.

Following the completion of the project on safe storage and registration of weapons of the Air Force and Navy, the Project Manager will implement the plans drawn up under the Project Manager’s 2005 Terms of Reference for a consolidation of the record-keeping and the management and security of weapons stocks and for the closing and winding-up of the project.’
