MEI Project Monitor Armenia Assignment Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the �EBRD� or the �Bank�) is committed to improving municipal and environmental services in its countries of operations, in line with its mandate to promote environmentally sound projects. The Bank�s emerging countries of operations, in particular Moldova, Belarus and those in the Caucasus and Central Asia, face immense challenges in rebuilding and maintaining the basic infrastructure of their urban areas. Since the collapse of the former Soviet Union, there has been a rapid deterioration in the availability and quality of public infrastructure and basic services. Essential services such as drinking water, sewerage and wastewater treatment, solid waste collection, public transport . are now often only intermittently available if at all and the steady decline in the quality of these services has created serious risks to public health. The capacity of local governments to deliver these services and provide the necessary infrastructure, is severely limited by lack of available fiscal resources, as well as the managerial weaknesses of their utilities. The limited institutional capacity at city and municipal company level at project start up combined with the logistical spread of the municipalities where the Bank is investing poses a formidable challenge with regards to efficient monitoring of financial and operational performance of the relevant utilities. Therefore, in order to support implementation and monitor progress of the overall programme of Municipal and Environmental Infrastructure (MEI) projects (the �Projects�) in Armenia, the Bank is seeking the support of a full-time project monitor (the �Project Monitor�) to provide continuous information on the performance of the participating municipal companies and other counterparts, and help address the implementation challenges (the �Assignment�). He/she will focus on achieving the Bank�s set objectives, priorities and conditionalities for the respective projects. The Project Monitor would be based in Yerevan. The overall objective of the Assignment is to support and facilitate the implementation of the Bank�s portfolio of municipal infrastructure investments in Armenia. The tasks will include, but will not be limited to the following: � Facilitate all necessary actions and collect documentation required to declare the individual Projects effective based on the terms and conditions of the signed legal documents, such as Loan Agreement, Grant Agreement, and other legally binding documents. � Support implementation monitoring including physical implementation as well as the institutional reform and development components by ensuring that arrangements are in place to ensure efficient and successful project implementation by observing, assessing and reporting on: o the overall performance of the Project Implementation Units (�PIUs�) and site staff, including consultants, contractors, suppliers and other parties involved in the implementation of the investments � and comment on compliance with their respective obligations and duties; and o the implementation arrangements including the PIU organisation, staffing, project management systems, arrangements for construction, and contract management. � Support monitoring of the financial and operational performance of the participating Municipal Companies as well as their owners (relevant participating City authorities). � Coordinate the activities of all the international and local consulting firms involved in the Projects namely those carrying out the Project Implementation Support and the Corporate Development and Stakeholder Participation programmes. The Project Monitor will maintain continuous dialogue with these consultants and will, inter alia: o Ensure that all consultants are provided with necessary documentation and other assistance, in order that they may meet the objectives of their assignments; o Ensure appropriate timings for the components of the TC assignments in relation to each other to support effect implementation of the Projects; o Support PIU�s in the participating Municipal Companies to review and respond to any recommendations, and where necessary support preparation of requests for amendment of the Priority Investment Programme. � Facilitate the timely submission of various reports and data from all the Municipal Companies to meet the Bank�s reporting covenants in the loan documentation. � Ensure that all applicable environmental and social procedures required by the Bank and donors are being adhered to and that the PIUs are duly informed about the procedures. � Be alert to any emerging problems, including those of a contractual, technical, or financial nature, which have the potential to jeopardise the achievement of the project objectives and advise on timely appropriate corrective action. In particular, advise on any proposed waivers or amendments to legal agreements and interpret any other matters of material interest to the EBRD. If necessary, assist in negotiations to achieve the required corrective action. � Participate in the preparation of MEI projects in country and contribute to development of MEI's portfolio. � Be actively involved in the MEI sector policy dialogue in country.

Gyumri Urban Roads - Feasibility Study for Street Lighting

 | Published January 20, 2017  -  Deadline February 9, 2017
cpvs

Project Description:
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) is supporting the City of Gyumri (Gyumri or the City) finance the rehabilitation of major streets, as well as the modernisation of street lighting in the City (the Project). Gyumri’s street network is currently illuminated through a network of around 4,970 street lights, of which some 80 per cent are operational. The street lighting installation consists mainly of old, inefficient and environmentally polluting mercury-based luminaires. The heavy-metal based content of the current lighting system contributes to energy waste and is a considerable environmental hazard when disposed into land-fills. Due to the antiquated condition, and the high percentage of non-functional lights, a large part of the streets, including some primary roads in the city centre, are not sufficiently illuminated, which results in decreased road safety and increased public security concerns. The City is therefore seeking to modernise its street lighting. It has embarked on a limited pilot to replace existing lanterns with modern energy-efficient light emitting diode (LED) lanterns, however, to date limited improvements have been made to the electrical cabling which is mostly in a poor and potentially dangerous condition. The proposed investments will ensure that fit for purpose street lighting equipment with safe electrical cabling is installed in the City along the roads that are being rehabilitated under the Project.

Assignment Description:
Given the investment requirements above, the Bank is seeking to engage a consulting company (the Consultant) to perform a feasibility study (the Assignment) for the street lighting component (the SL component) under the Project. The expected outcome of the Assignment is to provide the Bank with clear external analysis and recommendations concerning the SL component from a technical, engineering and institutional perspective, with a view towards financing the SL component to produce a modern energy efficient street lighting system for the City while also achieving improved efficiencies. The Consultant will carefully assess the priority investment plans of the City for public lighting, together with any feasibility studies, drawings and designs which are already prepared. The Consultant will closely liaise with the Project Implementation Support consultants (the PIS Consultant) that will be hired to prepare the tender documents and assist in procurement for the Project including preparing the tender documents and procurement for a long-term maintenance contract covering street and street lighting infrastructure to be contracted to the private sector. The Consultant shall, taking into account the EBRD’s environmental, technical and procurement policies and procedures identify those investments that best fit within the scope of the Project and within the estimated SL component budget. The Consultant shall prepare a report with justified recommendations for consideration by the City and the Bank.

The Consultant is expected to carry out the following specific tasks:

a. Review, summarise and document any road and street development plans, available studies by local or
international institutions and the City’s investment proposals, and set out the rationale and justification for
the SL component investments. The Consultant will take into consideration the current technical condition and lighting quality of selected streets and related infrastructure, scope and initial results of the LED pilot being implemented by the City as well as ongoing consultancy or contractors’ work related to the overall Project;

b. Determine the scope of the SL component that would be financed in the total amount of EUR 6 million by preparing the priority investment programme based on the cost-benefit analysis. This will purely focus on the modernisation of the street lighting system in the City and will take into account the existing City plans and street lighting modernisation that will have been undertaken by the time of this assignment. The Consultant will also outline possible future expansion of the street lighting system which may be anticipated within City plans and future developments.

c. Study and confirm the new and innovative green technology, specifically in carbon/economic savings, to be achieved in the SL component. Prepare the estimates of the energy savings to be achieved as a result of the SL component and the related CO2 reduction as well as other technical outcomes of the SL component. The format of the corresponding deliverable should be sought from the Bank.

d. Provide current costs associated with the new lighting infrastructure and estimate a 10-year outlook of the potential energy and – separately – maintenance cost reduction of the same infrastructure, and then compare the cost savings of the delayed implementation with the cost savings, including energy, carbon and system management, of the instant implementation.

e. Assemble and review all available relevant data, reports, designs and mapping for the proposed investments, and advise on any additional design work that may be required;

f. Advise the Bank on the appropriateness of the current lighting set up in relation to traffic demands, road and pedestrian safety, etc. Taking into account the existing Feasibility Study and other available materials, the Consultant will review existing street lighting system, including inventory and energy audit, and define the new LED investments including definition of system components and functionality, costs, operational and performance requirements, comprising control centre, wifi additionality and other possible smart city components;

g. Set out the scope, process and budget for the City to complete all necessary planning and design work for the recommended SL component, including economic evaluation;

h. Perform a legal and regulatory assessment of a future proposed structure and changes to existing city operator, including outline of any legal requirements to implement the SL component;

i. Prepare a basic economic internal rate of return (“EIRR”) of the proposed public lighting investments within the SL component;

j. Prepare a Cost Table, giving best estimates of the costs of SL component preparation including preparation of detailed design documentation, construction/implementation, works supervision costs, based on currently available information. Cost estimates should be presented separately for each segment, based on local or other relevant construction markets. The cost estimates for the details design shall include, where applicable, the cost of any surveys;

k. Prepare a draft Procurement Plan and Implementation Plan – with the recommended procurement strategy and appropriate descriptive text – for inclusion in the Bank’s internal processing documents;

l. In co-operation with the PIS Consultant as may be relevant propose a general bid evaluation methodology with appropriate criteria for tendering out rehabilitation of the street lighting system. The evaluation criteria shall include, among others, the extent to which the bidder has had experience in street lighting contracting projects;

m. Carry out an Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) of the SL component in accordance with the national laws, the EIA Directive, EBRD’s Environmental and Social Policy (2008) and its relevant Performance Requirements (PRs).

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

Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in Q1 2017 and has an estimated overall duration of 12 weeks.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 120,000 (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 purhcased 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.

Kotayk Solid Waste Management – Project Implementation Support

AMENDMENT: EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST SHOULD BE SUBMITTED IN ENGLISH AND ARMENIAN (OR RUSSIAN) LANGUAGE Executing Agency (Client): RA Ministry of Territorial Administration on behalf of the Municipality of Hrazdan (acting for all eight participating municipalities) Assignment Description: The Republic of Armenia is divided into ten Marzes (provinces). Kotayk Marz (“Kotayk”) has a population of 240,000 and an area of 2100 km2. The capital of Kotayk is the City of Hrazdan. The Ministry of Urban Development (“MUD”) has approached the EBRD with a request to prepare and finance a regional sanitary landfill in Kotayk. This would be the country’s first sanitary landfill. Kotayk was selected due to its proximity to Yerevan, with the intention of creating a demonstration project for the entire country. The Project would focus on Abovian (population 60,000), Hrazdan (population 53,000), Charentsavan (population 18,000), Yeghvard (population 12,000) and adjacent villages including Tsakhadzor, Byureghavan and Nor Hachn as well as Sevan in the neighbouring Gegharkunik region (together, the “Participating Municipalities”). Ultimately, MUD intends to build seven regional sanitary landfills to serve the whole country. The Project comprises a EUR 3.5 million loan from the EBRD to the Government of Armenia under a sovereign guarantee, co-financed by a capex grant of EUR 3.5 million from the EU Neighbourhood Investment Facility. The project will comprise an upgrade of a selected existing dumpsite in Hrazdan into a regional sanitary landfill of approximately 20 ha, closure of remaining dumpsites (this will not be a part of the project – just monitored by the EBRD), purchase of vehicles, bins and equipment for waste management, possibly tendering out of waste collection in a transparent manner to private companies (subject for further assessment in parallel with project implementation) and creation of a Landfill Operating Company (the “Company”), operating as a commercially sustainable unit. At present, solid waste is disposed at six major dumpsites and numerous small dumpsites in Kotayk. Waste collection in some municipalities is carried out by communal service companies or is tendered out to private companies. In residential areas households dispose of waste into small containers, which are emptied by collection trucks. In other cities, due to the lack of containers and bins, waste is piled up at a small dumpsite with subsequent loading onto collection vehicles manually with spades or direct loading of waste delivered by residents into the waste collection trucks available according to schedule. Residents of rural areas generating about 30 per cent of total household waste amount in Kotayk have rather poor waste collection and management arrangements. This is inefficient and results in street littering and illegal dumping. At present the average waste tariff collection rate is less than 50 per cent. The responsibility for project implementation will remain with the Participating Municipalities. A Project Implementation Unit (“PIU”) will be established by Hrazdan, with representatives from each of the Participating Municipalities and the Kotayk Regional Administration, as well as from relevant ministries. The PIU will be responsible for the preparation and implementation of the procurement process, supervising implementation of works, and preparation of reports as per the requirements of the financing agreement. In addition, the PIU will coordinate implementation and ensure the interface between the Participating Municipalities as final beneficiaries and the various financiers and donors, with the relevant governmental ministries and agencies involved in the Project. The PIU will also be in charge of the preparation of consolidated reports to be sent to the Bank, on behalf of the Borrower, as well as the approval and channelling of the disbursement applications to the Ministry of Finance. To facilitate the implementation of the Project, the PIU is seeking to engage a Consultant to assist in implementation of the Project. More specifically, the Consultant shall mainly perform the following: - Provide assistance to the Participating Municipalities in setting up the PIU, whose main purpose will be the implementation, financial management and overall delivery of the investment project in Kotayk; - Assist the PIU in the overall implementation of the Project, including project and financial management systems, environmental, health and safety and social management systems, review of design and all aspects of contract tender, evaluation and contract supervision; - Provide assistance in the procurement of works fully in accordance with the procedures, specifications and documentation of the Bank and pursuant to all other agreements stipulated in the Loan and Subsidiary Loan Agreement; - Render assistance to the PIU for coordination of the implementation to facilitate harmonised implementation of the Project and mitigate the risk of potential delays, including approval of disbursement applications; - Develop reporting templates and assist in the preparation of the required consolidated reports; - Coordinate all relevant activities with the consultants selected for the related project Corporate Development, Stakeholder Participation and Municipal Support Programme and with the EIA Consultant.

Yerevan Street Lighting – Project Procurement and Implementation

 | Published June 3, 2015  -  Deadline June 23, 2015
cpvs

Executing Agency (Client): Yerkaghluys CJSC (Yerevan Street Lighting Municipal Company) Project Description: The City of Yerevan (the “City”) has a population of 1.1m which equals 1/3 of the total population of the country. The City annually consumes almost 35 million kWh of electricity for its street lighting system using about 43,000 street lights equipped mainly with High Pressure Sodium (“HPS”) lamps. This is equivalent to nearly USD 3 million in 2014, driven by increases in the electricity tariff of over 30 per cent in the last two years coupled with the need to have greater lighting coverage in the city. The City’s street lighting network of 1420 kilometres is maintained by the Yerkaghluys CJSC (Yerevan Street Lighting Municipal Company) (the “Company” or the “Client”). In the last three years the lighting network was extended to cover new areas in the City. The existing network however has not been modernised in the past couple of decades due to lack of funding for modern, energy efficient technologies. The network consists mainly of old, inefficient and environmentally polluting mercury-based luminaries. The heavy-metal based content of the current lighting system contributes to energy waste and considerable environmental hazard at disposal into land-fills. Due to the antiquated condition, and the high-percentage of non-functional lights, a large part of the streets, including some primary roads in the city centre, are not sufficiently illuminated, which results in increased road safety risks. The City has therefore requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD” or the “Bank”) to assist in the preparation of a pilot project of modernising the street lighting network of 28 streets and use the Best Available Technology in the form of Light Emitting Diode (“LED”) technology for improved infrastructure and monitoring system. The Bank is providing a loan of up to USD 4 million to the Government of Armenia, to be on-lent to the Company to assist in modernisation of the street lighting system of the pilot project in the City of Yerevan. The Bank’s financing will be used for lighting control centre modernisation, upgrade of cabling and poles and replacement of luminaries on 28 streets in Yerevan identified for the pilot project. Assignment Description The Client intends to engage a consultancy company (the “Consultant”) in order to provide essential procurement training and to ensure the tender documents and procurement process are in line with the Bank’s Procurement Policies and Rules (“PP&R”). The format of the final tender documents will be based on EBRD’s standard tender documents. The Consultant will assist the Client and the City by providing procurement support and ensuring that the applied procurement procedures are in line with the EBRD’s PP&R, in particular facilitating the timely and effective procurement of the Project components by rendering assistance to the City and the Company in the prequalification of applicants, preparation of tender documents, evaluation of tenders and the contract award. The Consultant will provide assistance in procurement of the goods, works and services in accordance with the best international practice, agreed procurement strategy with the Bank and procedures, specifications and documentation of the Bank and pursuant to all other agreements stipulated in the Loan Agreement signed between the Republic of Armenia and EBRD. In order to meet the above objectives, the Consultant shall, inter alia: advise the City and the Company on procurement strategy; prepare tender documents including designs and technical specifications, clarifications/explanations and other relevant information to facilitate preparation of the tender documents; prepare clarifications and amendments to the tender documents, as may be necessary; assist the City and the Company during tenders opening session and draft the tender opening minutes; assist the City and the Company with the evaluation of tenders and prepare evaluation report; assist the City and the Company with drafting the contract with the winning tenderer, notification of contract award and notice to unsuccessful tenderers; support the City and the Company in resolving complaints, if any.

Funding Source: Taiwan Business - EBRD Technical Cooperation Fund Eligibility: Eligibility is restricted to firms registered in Taiwan and the experts proposed must be of Taiwanese nationality. However, up to 30% of the maximum cost estimate available for the assignment may be used to finance the services of international and/or local experts of other nationality.

There is an urgent need to improve waste management practices across Armenia, with waste currently being dumped at uncontrolled dumpsites of unacceptable technical and environmental standards. Yerevan’s existing Nubarashen dumpsite, which is the largest one in Armenia and which has served the capital since the early 1960s, operates without adequate environmental protection measures and needs to be closed and replaced with a new sanitary landfill site. The Project will finance a new sanitary landfill at an already dedicated area close to the existing dumpsite in Nubarashen. The landfill management company – to be formed at project launch – will receive TC funded capacity building support to establish efficient operations, enable knowledge transfer and introduction of international best practices in the sector. The solid waste collection in Yerevan has been contracted to a private operator. The operator will be obliged to pay a tipping fee for deposited waste at the new landfill. Once the landfill operations have been established the Banks (EBRD in cooperation with its co-financing partners the European Investment Bank (“EIB”) and the European Union’s Neighbourhood Investment Facility (“EU NIF”)) will support the Municipality to assess private sector interest in operating the landfill. The whole population of Yerevan (one third of the country) are expected to benefit from improved solid waste services as a result of the construction of the new sanitary landfill site. The Project is also expected to have an environmental benefit in that it will lead to the reduction of around 3,000 tonnes of methane gas emitted, which is the equivalent of 60,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide.
