         1. Privatization of Markets

During this reporting period various coordination meetings and actions were made by the project in regards to the
management settings and ownership of rehabilitated livestock markets. As a result of an action work plan for each
Livestock market was drawn (Attached)

In spite of these efforts still no advances were made concerning the localities commitments particularly for Singa,
Tendelti and Damazin, where in the later market (Damazin) the locality was witnessed an armed conflict that
hindered the work in all development projects, but did not affect the projects interventions in the whole state.

    1. Tendelti Livestock Market: The technical report on analysis of the bore hole in the Livestock Market was
       received but unfortunately the report stated that the available water is unfit for human consumption. The
       project is consulting WNS DWC on alternatives ways, which was suggested to drain the water from the
       neighboring Sudd (Reservoir) to the market.
    2. Singa Livestock Market: on monitoring the signed MOU with locality on management/ operations guides, a
       support mission of WB, PCU and PIU, with Sinnar SMAARI Minister and Singa Commissioner had met The
       Sinnar Wali who directed the Minster to recruit a competent manager for the market and reformulate the
       market board of directors to be small but effective with qualified and active members, which the project still
       on process of putting this into place in regards to management and the market ownership.

 5. FINANCIAL REPORT:

Total funds received , from MDTF , in this quarter , is SDG 1,729,856.60 equals US$ 651,421.13 ; this amount
includes SDG 556,811.60 (US$ 207,388.49 ); paid on direct payment basis ; against the contract of Egis Bceom , as
last instalment for conflict study. Foreign Exchange gain in this quarter is SDG 4,536 and Exchange loss is SDG
1,752.98. Total payments of MDTF for the quarter, is SDG 2,141,073 equal to (US$ 807,180) – (Refer to Table-1).

On 25th of September; we received SDG 1,400,000 (US$ 524,305.30) from Counterpart Fund. Total, payments of
this quarter; is SDG 507,502 (US$ 191,510); plus SDG 3,503.45 as VAT on procured materials; during the period.
(Refer to Table-1).

The column which is designated as Other in Table-1; with amount of SDG 42,529.11 ; represents foreign exchange
incentive against amounts transferred from our designated account to our local account; based on the policy
announced by the Central Bank of Sudan.

In this quarter; MDTF paid 12% of its total payments, for Ghebaish and El-Khowei markets, 45 %; paid on water
projects; 26 % on Studies (Foreign consultants) while 14% paid for officers and 3% for operation cost. (Refer to
Category-6 breakdown – Table-1)

GoNU paid 33% of its total payments, in this quarter, on Ghebaish Livestock Market water-point, 4% paid for different
supervision and technical assistance and 63% for operation cost, (Refer to Category-6 breakdown Table-1).

From Table -2 , we can conclude that ; budgeted component – I , under MDTF, is utilized by 71 %, but under
GoNU ; it is utilized, only by 90%; budgeted component – II is utilized by 47 % under MDTF, because markets
rehabilitation is running to its end . Component –III; of MDTF is implemented by 91% while that of GoNU is done by
106%; due to the fact that most payments of GoNU are used to be made on operation cost. Total components of
MDTF; in this quarter; are implemented by 65%, while Total implementation, by components of GoNU, is 87%

Operation cost, under GoNU, represents 63% of its total payments, in this quarter, while it represents 3% of; MDTF
total payments for the same period.

Cumulative total; budgeted components; of MDTF, up to end of this quarter, is implemented by 89% . Cumulative
Components of GoNU, for the same period, implemented by 88%. Please note that, we compute , these percentage
figures , based on the total fund of MDTF as USD 6.51 million , and GoNU as USD 3.7 million ; also please note
that our reporting currency is Sudanese Gineih ( SDG) , therefore take the impact of galloping inflation, in Sudan, into
consideration while reading the comparisons between quarters.

During this quarter, ILPM submitted 7 withdrawal applications ( from number 33 up to 39); but we received the
value of 5 withdrawal applications , amounting to USD 651,421 , out of these 5 WAs , two of them are paid on
direct payment basis , WA – 39 is submitted as Documentation of Prior Advance to Designated Account . On
October 2011; we received the proceeds of WA-37 (refer to Table- 4 ).
