A project is a proposal for the new investments, expansion program, develop and update production facilities in a community the overall viability of a project to be financed. An objective assessment of viability of a project is mentioned as a project appraisal. The main objective of project appraisal is to examine and the need of the project, judge whether the project is likely to meet the need and fulfill the requirement in respects of Bangladesh Development Bank Limited. It is an important basis of decision-making because project appraisal gives a clear idea about whole aspect of that project. Although there is no specific standard approach for project appraisal nevertheless numerous and diverse elements can come into the process of appraisal. It is difficult to appraise of certain project sufficiently however should cover as much as possible. BDBL tries to follow some set of scrutinize factors for their evaluation procedure. As a result they are able to overcome some problem and unnecessary time consuming. In practice project appraisal cover different aspects of a project. These are the following:Management and organization aspect

  • Technical aspect
  • Marketing aspect
  • Financial aspect
  • Social and economical aspect

  Management and organizational aspect :

There is no standard set of rules to identify the borrowers of promoters for new industrial establishment. It is to be done by direct and indirect investigation. The borrowers experience and capabilities can be assessed in terms of his educational background, special qualifications, practical business experience, and receptiveness to new ideas, the general reputation and adaptability to new and changing situation. To some extent it depends on the type of the project and the background of promoters. The competence of the manager and technical executives are also considered. But if such a project is sought to be promoted by a new and inexperienced promoters, all the aspects such as the competence and previous experience of the promoter, their collaboration arrangement, the technical and managerial backing has already line up, their financial resource etc may have to be thoroughly scrutinized.

Credit investigation: The following objects are intended to realize through the credit investigation.

  • Identification of applicants who are interested to get loan for industrial establishment.
  • Determination of their ability and willingness to abide by their agreement with the bank.

Particular information is necessary to evaluate the credit worthiness of a specific project. There are several methods like written requests, telephone conversation, informal meeting, physical verification and past records. The usual sources of information can be broadly categorized into internal and external sources.

  • Internal sources: Details of past borrowings / equity support such as amount, date of sanction, amount repaid, amount outstanding and overdue, together with comments on aspects like replacement etc.
  • External sources: Credit information bureau report, interview with the applicants, financial statements, deed and statutory documents investigation of business properties, register of joint stock companies and government publications.

       Independent opinion from outside sources etc.

  • Past repayment performance of existing loans.

Technological aspects;

The technical aspects encompasses whether the project is sound with regard to every engineering and technological consideration. The evaluation of the cost of resources in monetary term to determine the capital cost of the project and also its operating cost after implementation are considered. While evaluating the capital outlay and physical facilities, the engineer will have to determine the production cycle and also the time schedule fir implementation of the project. In the case of a project evolving technical collaboration or borrowed technology, the project engineer has to examine various facts of technology and its adoption to the local conditions including technology transfer and financial and economic implications of such transfer of tech enology. A development bank like BDBL may need to consult or contact specialize engineering services from outside for specialized matters, particulars relating to projects to be based on complex technology. Any decent in the project design and formulation will eventually affect the enterprise adversely. The following factor should be considered:

  • Preliminary investigation : Products and services, raw materials, skill manpower and technology required for manufacture the product and services and testing analytical report.
  • Selection of production process : choice of alternative and selection criteria, wastage in manufacturing process, by products and their recovery, disposal of wastes and effluents and environment pollution control.

Marketing appraisal: market analysis is the first screening stage in the project appraisal, at which project that cannot expect satisfactory market acceptance shall be rejected. For appropriate marketing objective, it is necessary look at depth unto the macro / micro demand / supply situation for specific products  the market, existing and expected competition in local and foreign markets, the market share etc. while appraising industrial projects, the bank is required to analyses these factors and to bring out the objective in quantitative terms. The following factors also are considered:

Finished goods, stores and spares, debtors etc. working capital requirement depending on the nature of the project, which should be followed during appraisal.

Socio-Economic Appraisal

Economic appraisal is the primary means of determining whether a proposed investment is worthwhile or not.

a)      Qantifable factor :

Economic appraisal should cover both quantifiable and non-quantifiable factors. The quantifiable factors include the followings:

  • Economic rate of return (ERR)
  • Domestic resources cost
  • Contribution to gross domestic product and
  • Employment generation etc.

Economic rate of return (ERR): Economic rate of return measure the potential earning power of the social resources used in the project and thus helps the assessment of investment proposal.

Decision criteria:After working out the ERR, it should be compared with the accounting rate of interest (ARI). The ARI is nothing but the opportunity cost of capital, which is supposed to maximize the use and productivity of invested resources in the country. The board decision is that, if other things being equal, the project that’s ERR is less than the ARI should ordinarily be rejected unless other non-quantifiable benefits are adequate or the project can be qualitatively justified.

Domestic resource cost: It indicated the domestic resource cost involved for foreign exchange to be earned by a project.

Contribution to gross domestic product (GDP): Contribution to GDP of a project is estimated from sales value and inter-firm transactions. Data regarding sales value is taken form the calculation of sales estimate of the financial appraisal.

Employment generation : The number of full-time jobs measured in man-years expected to be created both during construction and during operation of the project should be estimated separately. If data are available, these estimates should be related to regional, sect oral and national levels of unemployment and under employment.

b) Non-quantifiable/intangible/Externalities :

The non-quantifiable factors refer both the following :

  • To effects that are known to arise but which cannot be measured in physical term and
  • To effects which cannot be valued, difficulties problems often are date problem.
