In reply to: Freddie 's message, "Howmuch would it cost (PGK) for Data Collection Alone! ??" on Thu, Jul 17 2008, 01:45:41am

the cost structure of such a project would be greatly determined by the type of data required (the establishment/mobilization cost, which is for setup of basic infrastructure for the project, should be included). the other factor, which would determine the cost, is the project be done in close alliance with the provincial government.

such data as how many medical doctors in each district or electorate would be collected from district offices. to get a consensus/population of the Wake people in kandep district, you would need help from district administration but need to get to each household to count the heads. most of the districts are access by vehicle except malamooni. the provincial government would provide a vehicle and some basic assistance if asked.(the rent-a-car companies have standardized rates but this would be quite expensive)

as mentioned, the type of data required drives the cost structure largely. need provincial government assistance to make your budget reasonably affordable. some data would be provided by the provincial government but need updating. data change over time and thus, sustainability in this project is maintained to make the values of data better over time.

given these considerations and other factors(political) not covered, it would be reliable to initiate a project of such nature with the provincial government and then, let the provincial government take ownership of it for sustainability purposes.

our friends in the national statistical office: http://www.nso.gov.pg/
would provincial some assistance if requested.

with such assistance, the cost budget could be more one-half lower than without them. but cost budget can always be made to fit the funding cap and appropriately accommodate the speicific targets/objectives in such project.
