Q 1 : Should the Consultant budget for all the travel and staying costs for the Scoping Visit to Ghana? Or this will be met by the client?

A: The British Council will cover these costs so these do not need to be included in the pricing approach.  

Q 2: What mode of interface will be used for the briefing meetings?

A: The briefing meeting for the project overall will be held virtually (on Microsoft Teams). Stakeholder meetings in country should be held in person where possible.
