The members of SLBDC's in house professional team have strong academic credentials and extensive experience in their individual fields of specialization. The majority holds post-graduate qualifications and as a team they have in-depth knowledge and demonstrated experience in our core areas of activity. Many of the team members have received overseas training and several have overseas work experience.
We are also able to draw upon the services of consultants to supplement the skills of our professional staff as necessary. Each consultant is a specialist in one or more areas relevant to SLBDC’s core areas of expertise. These consultants have undergone a screening process to be eligible for registration at SLBDC and many of them have previously provided their professional services to SLBDC and our clients. In addition we have a task force of 5 – 15 well- trained field investigators/enumerators in each administrative district in Sri Lanka. We also have a core group of highly skilled and experienced statisticians, analysts and data entry operators, which ensures the timeliness, accuracy and confidentiality of the data that is gathered and analyzed.
We have the ability to mobilize a team of professionals to carry out assignments in diverse countries, especially in the Asian region, at short notice having carried out special assignments in India, Mongolia, and the Maldives. Our consultants also have considerable experience in providing professional services at international level.
