Ms. Katerina Babina, Director
Address: 64 Soborna Str., Vinnytsia, Ukraine, 21050
The Ministry of Regional Development, Building and Housing and Communal Services, and the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine (the 'Beneficiaries') have asked for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the 'Bank' or the 'EBRD') support to reform the Ukrainian construction industry via a Construction Sector Regulatory Reform (the 'Project' or 'CSRR').
The construction sector in Ukraine contributed approximately EUR 3.4 bln to the national economy in 2013, which represented 2.8 per cent of GDP. For comparison, in Spain the construction sector contributes about 10 per cent of GDP.
The construction sector and its regulations have a direct impact on other sectors of the economy such as real estate, infrastructure, power energy, building materials, transportation, engineering etc. Therefore, the knock-on effect of the regulatory framework for the construction industry covers more than one quarter of the GDP.
Construction companies and foreign investors complain that the regulatory framework and business practices, including typical contractual terms and conditions, are cumbersome and unbalanced. Capital expenditure processes are overly bureaucratic and appear not to reflect the market based reality bringing along a heavy heritage from the centrally planned economy of the USSR.
The Bank now intends to engage a consulting firm or group of firms (the 'Consultant') to
Develop a detailed action plan to harmonise national construction legislation and regulations with respective EU ones; review and modify business processes related to construction investments in line with best practices; and assist with the introduction of internationally recognised contract conditions (FIDIC) into Ukrainian contractual practices (the 'Assignment').
The contracting entity will be the Bank.
The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:
(a) Review of the project implementation cycle with an aim is to reduce bureaucracy, time and cost of works in order to improve public service delivery to the citizens of the country. Beyond financial management and procurement, this analytical work shall address project planning, design, execution and monitoring and evaluation of capital investment projects;
(b) Following the above mentioned review, development of a road map for legal and regulatory framework modification;
(c) Introduction of fair and balanced contractual terms and conditions, based on internationally recognised forms of construction contracts (FIDIC), as a common practice in public sector.
The expected outcome of the Assignment is that a project implementation cycle is improved and a road map for legal and regulatory framework modification is developed and endorsed by the Beneficiaries.
This is Phase I of the overall Project and it is currently envisaged that a potential Phase II will focus on the (i) introduction of market-based cost estimate methodologies; (ii) development of the framework for self-regulatory bodies in the sector; (iii) review of certification of specialists and respective recommendations for modification of educational system; and (iv) development of the road map for unification of the technical standards with the respective EU norms.
Since the Phase I Consultant will be responsible for drafting the Terms of Reference for the Phase II services, it is envisaged that they will not be eligible to participate in that selection process if launched.

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.
