Objective and Purpose of the Assignment Background:
1. The Department of Transportation (DOTr) is mandated to establish a railway network system. Currently
DOTr has 11 railway projects. DOTr is planning to establish 9 Project Management Offices (PMO) to
implement these projects. The PMO for the Philippine National Railways (PNR) North South Commuter Rail
projects (NSCR) are the priority projects which will share one PMO.

2. The PNR NSCR Project is among several projects reconstructing the Luzon Railway system. The Luzon
Railway system will allow for the transportation of both passengers and freight throughout the main
island of Luzon. The NSCR is expected to be financed through the Japan Official Development Assistance
(ODA) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

3. Description of the NSCR: The NSCR involves around 149-kilometers of commuter railway from Clark City
to Calamba, Laguna. It will utilize, as much as possible, the existing right-of-way. The NSCR is a
double-track electrified railway system with primarily elevated tracks. The NSCR is committed for
partial completion by 2022 and full completion by 2024. The project encompasses all tasks required for
the commissioning of the railway system, including land acquisition and resettlement, civil works, power
supply, signaling, rolling stocks, depts, operation management system, etc. Following successful
commissioning, the delivery PMO will be replaced by operating rail arrangements, which are not part of
the scope of this TOR. Personnel appointed to the PMO will be appointed for the duration of the PMO, or
for the time of their engagement necessary to the project.

4. Draft PMO Structure: A draft PMO structure will be shared with the consultants after contract
signing. The PMO should comprise of the following summarized functions, at a minimum:

• Permanent Way - corridor/track design and construction, signaling and communications, power;
• Right of Way expertise;
• Design and Architecture;
• Public Relations;
• Social Safeguards, including resettlement of project affected people;
• Environmental Safeguards;
• Overall Project Construction and Delivery expertise;
• Contract Management;
• Rolling stock design, construction, delivery, implementation and operations integration expertise;
• Station, Yard, Maintenance Facilities and Integration expertise;
• Transit Oriented Developments;
• Administration;
• Project Management;
• Passenger systems integration and freight transport knowledge and experience, including the
integration elements thereof;
• Knowledge Transfer (including training) – and implementation thereof;
• Cost, budgeting, accounting, scheduling expertise.


5. Based on the above background, one international consultant and five national consultants are
required to support DOTr in establishing the PMO for PNR NSCR. The aim of the team of consultants is to
prepare the required supporting documents consistent within existing guidelines as required (and/or
requested by DBM) or the other agencies to affect a successful recruitment immediately thereafter. The
consulting services shall be implemented over 8 months on an intermittent basis.
