SPECIFIC PROCUREMENT NOTICE
LOAN NO: LO 1965/OC-TT
The Government of Trinidad & Tobago, through the Ministry of National Security has received financing from the inter-American
Development Bank (IDB), and intends to apply part of the proceeds to projects designed by the Citizen Security Programme to con-
tribute to the reduction of crime and violence within 22 "high needs" communities throughout Trinidad and Tobago.
The CSP will accomplish this through the financing of preventative interventions addressing the most proximal and modifiable risk
factors for crime and violence. The programme is delivered through three (3) major components: (1) Community Action; (2)
Assistance to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS); and (3) Institutional Strengthening of the Ministry of National Security.
A key strategy within the community action component is the establishment of Multi- Purpose Facilities/Youth Friendly Spaces in
each of CSPs pilot communities. These Multi- Purpose facilities/Youth Friendly Spaces are intended to provide a full range of acces-
sible and affordable services to young people including skills building, training programmes, educational resources and support from
trained youth development personnel. As a result, the CSP intends to construct, rehabilitate, or refurbish as necessary the identified
community based sites; while also outfitting each site with furniture, fixtures and equipment.

ADELAIDE---Clint McKay took three wickets,
including a bizarre stumping to dismiss Ravi
Bopara, as Australia beat England by five runs
in the fifth one-day cricket international yes-
terday to win the five-match series 4-1.
Australia made 217-9 in its 50 overs after choos-
ing to bat on a sluggish pitch at the Adelaide
Oval and England lost its last wicket at 212 with
three balls remaining in a match marking the
Australia Day national holiday.
England seemed to be coasting to victory when
Joe Root made 55 and Eion Morgan 39 in a 64-
run partnership for the foruth wicket that had
it 154-4 in the 36th over. But it lost vital wickets
quickly in a chaotic run chase and Bopara was
left as its last specialist batsman and its last hope
of ending the series with a win.
Bopara saw a succession of partners come and
go as England stumbled towards a winning total
and did everything in his power to marshal the
resources of the England tail.
He was on 25 and seemed in command of an
anxious situation when McKay, bowling at pace
to wicketkeeper Matthew Wade, who was skillfully
and courageously standing up to the stumps, beat
his outside off. The ball struck Wade s gloves,
dislodged and fell forward onto the stumps just
as Bopara lifted his back foot an inch above the
Australia appealed, more in hope than confi-
dence, and the television umpire studied a long
series of slow motion replays before deciding that
Bopara s foot had come up just as the bail had
been removed. He was out and with him went
England s last chance of victory.
His departure left England s last pair at the
crease, needing nine runs with eight balls remain-
ing. Chris Jordan and James Tredwell reached the
last over with eight runs still required and reduced
the target with a single and a leg bye before Tred-
well was caught by Wade off Shane Watson to
end the innings.
McKay finished with 3-36, including the wickets
of Bopara, Ben Stokes (0) and Stuart Broad (7).
Nathan Coulter-Nile took 3-34 and James Faulkn-
er 2-37 in an outstanding Australian bowling per-
Scoring runs on a holding Adelaide Oval surface
required patience and perseverance that only a
handful of batsman showed. George Bailey top-
scored with 56 and Shaun Marsh made 36 in the
Australian innings while Alastair Cook gave Eng-
land a sound start with a careful 39.
England s run chase still seemed relatively
undemanding but the only point at which they
seemed in command was when Root and Morgan
What might have been a relatively comfortable
conclusion to the match from England s point of
view became increasingly stressful, then hopeless
as Morgan, Root and wicketkeeper Jos Buttler all
threw away their wickets.
All three fell to catches while trying to accelerate
the scoring and while ignoring ample evidence
that forced shots on a slow pitch were immensely
dangerous. After hitting three fours and a six,
Morgan drove a ball from Faulkner to Shane Wat-
son at mid-off; Root seemed prepared to stay
until the end but then played a blind, ramping
shot and was caught by Xavier Doherty off Faulkn-
er and Buttler pulled a ball from Coulter-Nile
directly to McKay on the square leg boundary.
Bopara and Tim Bresnan (13) nudged England
a little close to victory before Bresnan was waste-
fully run out with 24 runs still needed.
Broad was then bowled by McKay for 7, becom-
ing the eighth man out with 14 runs required
from 18 balls.
