~~Dear Sir/Madam, Subject: Request for Proposal (RFP) for services to improve the socio-economic well-being of vulnerable Jordanian women in host communities in Irbid and Zarqa governorates. 1. The United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN Women) plans to procure services to improve the socio-economic well-being of vulnerable Jordanian women in host communities in Irbid and Zarqa governorates as described in this Request for Proposal and its related annexes. UN Women now invites sealed proposals from qualified proposers for providing the requirements as defined in these documents. 2. In order to prepare a responsive proposal you must carefully review and understand the contents of the following documents: i. This letter and Proposal Instruction Sheet (PIS) including ii. Instructions to Proposers (Annex I)   available from this link http://www.unwomen.org/~/media/commoncontent/procurement/rfp-instructions-en.pdf iii. Terms of Reference (TOR) (Annex II) iv. Evaluation Methodology and Criteria (Annex III) v. Format of Technical Proposal (Annex IV) vi. Format of Financial Proposal (Annex V) vii. Proposal Submission Form (Annex VI) viii. Voluntary Agreement for Promoting Gender Equality in the Workplace (Annex VII) ix. Proposed Model Form of  Contract (Annex VIII) x. General Conditions of Contract (Annex IX) xi. Joint Venture/Consortium/Association Information Form (Annex X) xii. Submission Checklist (Annex XI) 3. The Proposal Instruction Sheet (PIS), below, provides the requisite information (with cross reference numbers) which is further detailed in the Instructions to Proposers (Annex-I – see above link). ============ ~~Annex II Terms of Reference UN Women Country Office for Jordan INTRODUCTION UN Women is grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls, the empowerment of women, and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. UN Women Jordan currently supports projects that promote the economic participation of Jordanian women and works to improve access and effective participation of marginalized Jordanian women in economic and public life by addressing the barriers that have led to their exclusion. BACKGRUND/PROBLEM ANALAYSIS As outlined in the Jordan Response Plan (JRP) 2015, the influx of Syrian refugees into Jordan has exacerbated existing social vulnerabilities. According to the National Aid Fund (NAF), which targets vulnerable Jordanians, the indirect and direct impact of the Syria crisis has resulted in an additional 20,000 Jordanian families enrolled in their cash assistance programmes, at a cost of an additional US$4.23 million annually. Those at particular risk are poor households, female-headed households, survivors of violence, children deprived of parental care, children in conflict with the law, children engaged in child labour, and persons with disabilities. Violence against childrenin schools is high for boys and girls, and women are reporting increasing levels of violence at home’.  Moreover, the JRP 2015 highlights challenges related to unemployment: ‘the influx of Syrian refugees has resulted in availability constraints in jobs and income generating opportunities, particularly in the governorates of Mafraq, Irbid and Amman. From 2012 to 2013, the unemployment rate increased in Mafraq (10.7 to 14.5 per cent) and Irbid (11.7 to 13 per cent), settling above the national level (12.6 per cent in 2013). In 2013, the unemployment rate for women was about twice that of men and for youth between the ages of 15-24 it stood above 30 per cent.’ Access to safe and decent economic recovery activities can mitigate protection threats, including through diminishing individuals’ and families’ reliance on negative coping mechanisms to meet their basic needs. For example, global data shows that when women have access to employment opportunities, household economies benefit and household spending on health care and education increase, both key social dividends for human resilience. In line with this and with the overall guidance of the Jordan National Resilience Plan 2014-16, and specifically the JRP 2015, and through a resilience and social cohesion framework, UN Women is launching its project, improving the socio-economic well-being of vulnerable Jordanian women in host communities. The main objective of this project is to improve the socio-economic well-being of vulnerable Jordanian women living in Irbid and Zarqa governorates. More specifically, the project is aligned with the following elements of the JRP 2015: Livelihoods and Food Security sector – To protect food security to save lives, and enable livelihoods to cope with and recover from the impact of the Syria crisis, as well as strengthen the capacity to adapt to future shocks. Resilience Strategic Objective 1: More and better job opportunities created for vulnerable women, and young men and women. The project strongly integrates the JRP’s cross-cutting priorities of youth, gender equality, social cohesion, environmental sustainability and capacity development. PURPOSE UN Women is seeking innovative and impact-oriented initiatives. This fund seeks to support the promotion of gender equality in Irbid and Zarqa governorates through linking women to income generation and employment opportunities, while enhancing key life skills and linking them to decision-making structures. The project has three main components: a) Enhance Jordanian women’s economic empowerment through access to decent employment; b) Support women’s political representation and engagement in local level decision-making; c) Enhance women’s access to life skills and other key skills areas; Applicants are expected to articulate clearly how they will achieve tangible results in these areas: - Income generation and self-reliance interventions: Supporting women’s engagement in the labour market will focus on providing vocational and business skills training and creating income generation opportunities for Jordanian women living in host communities in Irbid and Zarqa governorates. The focus will be on, where possible, entry into the formal labour market. Applicants are expected to present innovative employment models. The emphasis should be on identifying entry points for women’s sustainable employment in particular in areas with high unemployment and high numbers of refugees in order to support the building of social cohesion. - Strengthen capacities for inclusive and effective women’s and girls’ participation in decision-making processes at the local level on issues affecting their lives: This should focus on supporting women living in host communities in Irbid and Zarqa governorates to be active decision-makers in their communities by providing trainings and support related to rights, confidence and business skills. Support should also be given to link women to decision-making forums at the community level, including creating or maintaining/supporting mechanisms that link women to elected leaders, allowing them to articulate their priorities and call for these to be addressed in local initiatives, plans and budgets. Please be aware that the fund prioritizes proposals that reflect the following four key aspects: - Contribute to social cohesion between Jordanians and Syrian refugees. - Are undertaken through strong national leadership. - Link livelihoods to environmental sustainability and natural resource management. - Has measures in place to mitigate anticipated risk of gender-based violence related to the project’s activities throughout the project cycle.

Abdali District Heating and Cooling - Lender's Supervisor

 | Published February 24, 2015  -  Deadline March 17, 2015
cpvs

The EBRD has provided a USD 30 million loan to finance the establishment of Jordan's first district energy plant, which will be the exclusive provider of cooling and heating energy, and as such, is a cornerstone in the success of high profile Abdali Urban Regeneration (AUR) development in Amman, the capital of Jordan. This private sector development aims to attract much needed foreign direct investment (FDI) into Jordan, and is expected to raise Jordan's business profile significantly by establishing, for the first time, a professional business district in the heart of Amman. This business district is expected to host large and international banking corporations and organisations, as well as other organisations in health care tourism and retail. The loan will finance the construction of a new permanent plant, which will assume the current limited capacity of an existing temporary plant and will consequently have a total of 30,000 tonnes of cooling output and approximately 50,000 kw of heating output (the "Project"). More importantly, the Project is setting a benchmark for the efficient use of energy in the development of large projects in Jordan. The Project is expected to create around 41 per cent savings in annual energy consumption for cooling and heating as compared with the use of common practice decentralised energy provision. In light of the above, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD" or the "Bank") is seeking the support of an experienced team of experts (the "Consultant") to undertake the lenders supervisory role (the "assignment"). The Consultant will provide the services of the lender's supervisor and will review the implementation arrangements in place to ensure that they are sufficient to support the Project implementation. To this end, the Consultant will observe, assess and report on: (i) the overall performance of the borrower, the Project management team and site staff, commenting on the effectiveness of co-ordination between and performance of all Project parties, including consultants, contractors, suppliers and other parties involved in the implementation of the investments, commenting on compliance with their respective obligations and duties; (ii) the Project implementation arrangements including the Project organisation, staffing, Project management systems, arrangements for construction, identification and management, and contract management; (iii) quality control/assurance systems, confirming that there is no evidence of any material problems with current or expected future quality and that the investments are likely to meet the specified technical performance requirements at the date of operation. Assignment Start Date and Duration: The assignment is expected to start in mid May 2015 and last for 24 months. Maximum Cost Estimate available for the Assignment: EUR 150,000.00; Exclusive of VAT. The consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the Bank's special status as an IFI and state this to the Bank in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense. Funding Source: the Bank's own resources Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions Consultant Profile: Corporate services are required. The Consultant will be a firm or group of experts with experience in providing services as international financial institution (IFI) lender's monitor/supervisor in complex infrastructure projects. Experience in the district heating/cooling sector is of the utmost importance, as well as a technical understanding of the sector. The Consultant should have experience in the region, preferably in Jordan. Submission Requirements: Interested firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest. In order to determine the capability and experience of consulting firms seeking to be shortlisted, the information submitted should include the following: (a) brief overview of the firm/group of firms including company profile, organisation and staffing; (b) details of similar experience of firm or group of firms and related assignments undertaken in the previous five years, including information on contract value, contracting entity/client, project location/country, duration (mm/yy to mm/yy), expert months provided, assignment budget, percentage carried out by consultant in case of association of firms or subcontracting, main activities, objectives; (c) CVs of key experts who could carry out the Assignment detailing qualifications, experience in similar assignments, particularly assignments undertaken in the previous five years, including information on contracting entity/client, project location/country, duration (mm/yy to mm/yy), expert months provided, assignment budget, main activities, objectives.

Project Description:
GAM has approached the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “Bank” or the “EBRD”) with a request to assess the possibility of financing an energy efficient street lighting modernisation programme along the major street network under a Public Private Partnership (“PPP”) structure (the “Project”). The Project is expected to be structured based on an ESCO business model, likely in the form of a shared savings energy performance contract (“EPC”). Given the innovation and scalability of the Project, it will be carried out in a phased approach.

This Assignment will concentrate on Phase 1 of the Project, which includes the upgrading of around 25,000 light fixtures consisting of mostly 250W HPS lamps, and the implementation of associated operation, maintenance, and control systems. All light fixtures of Phase 1 are directly under GAM's control. The Project is envisaged to decrease the electricity consumption by up to 50 per cent, and subsequently lower the electricity costs of currently JOD 9 million per annum. In addition, GAM may implement solar panels as part of the system in certain areas.

The Project will be assessed and further scoped during external technical and financial due diligence, carried out in parallel to this Assignment.

The Project’s tender process has been launched and expressions of interest (“EOI”) were received end of March 2015. Subsequently, the evaluation of the received EOIs and shortlisting of pre-qualified bidders is expected to be finalised by fall-2015. Given that PPPs - and especially ESCO models - are not widely common in Jordan, GAM is seeking a consultant (the “Consultant”) to provide support throughout the tender process (the “Assignment”). The tender process of concessions will be led by GAM (the “Tendering Authority”).

Assignment Description:
The Client now intends to engage a Consultant to provide technical assistance to the Tendering Authority for the elaboration of all tender documentation for the Project, and support the City throughout the tender process, including negotiation and award of a PPP Agreement, preferably structured as an ESCO/ EPC business model. The tender process should foster competition and result in a well-balanced PPP contract / EPC. The Consultants will assist the City to secure the PPP option that will result with the optimal financial benefits for the City. 

The tasks to be carried out for the Assignment will involve discussions with the City and relevant government units responsible for PPP and other related parties, elaboration of documentation, and dialogue and promotion of the PPP/EPC/ESCO tender process. The Consultant will provide a full and complete package of advice concerning legal, financial and technical aspects of the Project. This comprises tender design, and bidding support through to financial close, including and without limitation the following tasks:

• Review Technical Report on Public Lighting Activities and Financial and Economic Report;
• Proposed set-up of the legal structures of the new street lighting solution, based on legislation of PPPs in Jordan, Technical Report on Public Lighting Activities, Financial and Economic Report, and discussions with the bidders;
• Preparation of the PPP/EPC/ESCO full tender documentation and draft contract;
• Assist GAM in the approval process as per Law Number 31 of 2014;
• Assist along the whole tender process in close collaboration with the Bank funded procurement consultant;
• Assistance with financial closure.

The above tasks will include discussions with the Tendering Authority, the Council (as needed), and other relevant stakeholders, such as other consultants, service users, JEPCO, and Public Private Partnership Unit (“PPP Unit”) in coordination with GAM. A skilful use of communications to both internal and external stakeholders will be needed, in order to prepare an acceptable tender, and promote the PPP tender process.

Status of Selection Process: Interested firms or group of firms are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest.

Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in Q1 2016 and has an estimated overall duration of 12 months.

Establishment of a Custodian Company in Jordan: Feasibility Study Support

 | Published April 1, 2016  -  Deadline April 18, 2016
cpvs

Assignment Description: The availability of professional, well-managed custodian services is one of the building blocks of capital markets. A custodian service, which can be provided by a bank or a special independent company, typically holds customers' securities for safekeeping so as to minimize the risk of their theft or loss, and can also provide a range of services and products, further enhancing the capacity of the local market. This has been a weak aspect of the Jordanian market for some time.

For many years, Jordan’s securities market was served primarily by one foreign bank acting as a local custodian, namely HSBC Jordan. Although the Jordan Securities Commission had granted around 14 custody licenses to local commercial banks, most of these were not active as local banks shied away from offering custody services to international investors. This was mainly due to the fact that the local banks lacked custody expertise needed to attract sophisticated international institutional investors which are active in the Jordanian securities market. As a result, HSBC had a de facto monopoly in offering local custody services.

The reliance on HSBC was highlighted when in 2014 HSBC took a sudden and unexpected decision to exit Jordan (among other Arab countries) and decided to sell its local commercial banking operations to a local Jordanian bank. The suddenness of the exit decision took everyone by surprise, including global custodians who were using its local custody services in Jordan to service their international clients.

The four Jordanian banks have engaged a local consultant to prepare a feasibility study for the establishment of a Jordanian custody company to offer custody services in the Jordanian securities market as well as in some of the other securities markets in the Middle East and North Africa (“MENA”) region. Due to unexpected local developments the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) has now an opportunity to contribute to the development of such services by supporting the preparation of the feasibility study.

The EBRD now wishes to engage an individual international custody business expert (the “Consultant”) to review the feasibility study, define the business model, propose services and products and ensure that international best practices are applied (the “Assignment”).

The provided services will complement the work of the local consultant carrying out the feasibility study. The Bank will provide an international perspective and best practice in the field of custodian services. Depending on the outcome of the Study, the Bank might further support this important development via a possible investment into the newly established Custodian Company.

Status of Selection Process: Interested individual experts or firms interested in nominating an expert are hereby invited to submit expressions of interest.

Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in May 2016 and has an estimated overall duration of 2 months.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 20,000.00; exclusive of VAT.

The consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the Bank's special status as an international financial institution (IFI), and state this in their response to this Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (eg VAT on airline ticket) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense.

Funding Source: It is anticipated that the contract will be financed through the EBRD's Southern and Eastern Mediterranean (SEMED) cooperation funds account.

Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions. However, consultant selection and contracting will be subject to availability of funding.

Consultant Profile: The Consultant will be an individual expert with:
 Preferably 10 years’ experience at a custodian bank, with experience of operating a custodian service, the post-trade operations and international best practices;
 Preferably 3 years’ experience working as a consultant on similar custodian bank assignments;
 Excellent knowledge of international standards in developed markets related to the delivery of custodian services;
 Experience in the design of business models and operations on custodian bank level;
 Knowledge of the securities market in Jordan, the Levant or the Middle East would be an advantage;
 Proficiency in written and spoken English language.

Submission Requirements: In order to determine the capability and experience of experts seeking to be selected, the information submitted should include the following:

1. Cover letter (max. 2 pages) summarising why the expert believes they satisfy the requirements as defined in the Consultant Profile;

2. CV (not exceeding 4 pages) which should include full descriptions of responsibilities carried out, not just a job title, including information on contracting entity/client, project location/country, duration (mm/yy to mm/yy), expert months provided (if different from duration) , main activities, objectives.

3. Completed Consultant Declaration From and Contact Sheet, the template for which is available at: http://www.ebrd.com/pages/workingwithus/procurement/notices/csu/contact_sheet.doc
