Bulgaria: Plovdiv Roads Project - Performance Based Management and Maintenance of Roads (PMMR) - Support for Tender and Implementation

 | Published October 24, 2014  -  Deadline November 24, 2014
cpvs

Bulgaria: Plovdiv Roads Project - Performance Based Management and Maintenance of Roads (PMMR) - Support for Tender and Implementation Background: The Municipality of Plovdiv (the "City" or the "Client") is the third largest municipality in Bulgaria, covering an area of 101 square kilometres. It has a population of about 370,000 people, and is a strategically important industrial and commercial centre. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD" or the "Bank") is supporting the City's comprehensive plan to revamp Plovdiv's primary street network by providing a loan to rehabilitate key road infrastructure, including - Ruski Blvd., Komatevsko Shosse Blvd., Shesti Septemvri Blvd., and to complete an unfinished boulevard - Severen Blvd (the "Project"). At present, the City is solely responsible for constructing, rehabilitating and maintaining its urban street network, which is managed under the Deputy Mayor for Investments. Road rehabilitations are typically financed from the City's budget. Long-term commercial bank financing for the road rehabilitation and maintenance has also been difficult to procure. Moreover, the national procurement law limits the maximum term of municipal borrowings to 10 years. The City's strategic objectives with respect to road infrastructure and traffic organisations are outlined in a number of documents and initiatives: 1) The General Transport Organisation Plan identifies the key problems related to traffic organisation: (i) Important road segments are not fully constructed; (ii) A number of urban roads are not compliant with the relevant functional and technical requirements; and (iii) Some urban road segments are not used efficiently due to lack of good connections with the rest of the urbanised area and infrastructure. The proposed Project addresses all these points above. 2) The Integrated Plan for Sustainable Urban Development defines the so-called "areas of influence" that will benefit from European Union (EU) grants under the Operational Programme Regions in Growth Regional Development during the 2014-2020 programming period. The main objective of the Integrated Plan is to ensure that EU grants are invested in a more integrated and sustainable way. 3) In terms of the preparation of the Performance Based Management and Maintenance of Roads (PMMR) approach for Plovdiv, the Project has been prepared technically and conceptually structured with support from external consultants Project One (Bulgaria) and Atkins (UK), and has benefited from the latter's long and varied experience with PMMR structuring. A copy of the reports prepared by these consultants will be provided to the highest ranked consultant during negations. The overall assessment is that Plovdiv is a good candidate for PMMR, given that: a) Plovdiv has experience with different kinds of long-term public-private partnership in Plovdiv (e.g. concessions for public transport bus operations and waste management). At national level, Bulgaria also has some experience in the road engineering sector with long-term contracting - there has been an evolution in recent years in road rehabilitation contracts in Bulgaria which includes projects with scope of 3-5 or more years. The country's road engineering sector has some accumulated experience already with performance-based work through working with the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC) type of road construction contracts and the Municipality has a good understanding of the PMMR concept, and the basic institutional capacities to monitor the future contract. Key recommendations included: The PMMR contract should be kept simple noting that this will be the first of its kind of performance-based contract at the urban road level. The contract duration should be kept to a medium term – up to10 years following the completion of rehabilitation works - in order to avoid unacceptable risks to be transferred to the private PMMR contractor. The hand-back condition of the road network at contract expiration should specify a minimum remaining life-cycle. Reinstatement works following utility party access works in the newly rehabilitated road network should be contracted either to the PMMR contractor, or signed off by the PMMR contractor. The number of PMMR Performance Standards to be monitored by the Municipality should be kept to a minimum and be relatively simple to verify (e.g. through regular visual checks). The Project preparation work, however, also recognised certain intrinsic challenges to a PMMR approach as it requires a medium to long-term fiscal discipline to provide public funds to provide regular 'unitary payment' to the PMMR contractor: Overall financial challenges may become more acute in Plovdiv – although in relatively good financial health compared to most Bulgarian municipalities, the risks of limited cash flow predictability also exist for Plovdiv. Possible challenges to the financial stability of the Municipality of Plovdiv could undermine the efficient technical execution of a PMMR contract. Finally, there are political risk factors (e.g., a change in municipal leadership during the course of the PMMR contract) that could affect efficient execution of long-term agreements. Based on the factors outlined above, the project preparation consultants recommended a specifically focused, bespoke approach to PMMR introduction in Plovdiv. It is assessed that it would be better if the PMMR contract includes only very well specified maintenance services (not exceeding 3-4 particular tasks) as this is a pilot project for the country. Main contract characteristics and basic ‘stepping stones’ in developing the initial phase of PMMR contracting introduction in Plovdiv could include: (i) One single contract with separate lots, instead of separate sub-contracts is preferable for each of the road sections for purposes of market interest and economic optimization; (ii) maximum period of 10 years, following rehabilitation; (iii) the guarantees provided by the contract must be in line with the common requirements of the sector; (iv) the bidding documents and the contract itself must take into account the normal risks related to changes in the prices of fuel, materials and labour; and (v) appropriate balance of risk transfer between Contractor and the Municipality (some risks to be shared as an evidence of long-term commitment to the private contractor). Assignment Description: The Client now intends to retain a consultant (the "Consultant") to generally (i) Develop a PMMR approach (contract) specific to Plovdiv, based on the pre-feasibility study prepared by Project One - Atkins; (ii) Implement a procurement approach from the design of tender documentation through to selection of the PMMR contractor; and (iii) Support the Municipality in supervising the PMMR contractor (the "Assignment"). Specifically, the Assignment will include the following tasks: Task 1: Review the technical designs prepared by the Municipality of Plovdiv with respect to the road segments subject to rehabilitation / construction Task 2: Develop a baseline condition survey/study of the road sections to be included in the future PMMR contract Task 3: Define technical standards/performance indicators for Plovdiv road system Task 4: Develop PMMR tender documents Task 5: Assist with launch, selection, negotiations and signing of the PMMR contract Task 6: Support the City in the execution and monitoring of the PMMR contract. 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 the first quarter of 2015 and has an estimated overall duration of 14 months. The first four months are assigned to carry out tasks 1 to 4, and an additional four months to complete all of Task 5. The remaining 5 months will be allocated to the supervision of the contracts. The contract may be extended subject to assignment needs, excellent performance of the Consultant and availability of funding. Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 150,000 (exclusive of VAT). The Consultant must determine whether any indirect taxes/VAT are chargeable on the proposed services and state the basis for such. If any indirect taxes/VAT are payable, the Client will have to pay indirect taxes/VAT element to the services directly to the Consultant unless otherwise agreed. Funding Source: EBRD Shareholder Special Fund Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions. Consultant Profile: Corporate services are required. The Consultant will be a firm or a group of firms with experience in: a) structuring, implementing and monitoring urban transport projects (concessions, Design Build Operate Maintain (DBOM), Output and Performance Based Road Contracts (OPRC), PMMR, or similar), including specific experience in urban road management and performance-based contracting (OPRC or PMMR), preferably within the last 7 years ; b) structuring, implementing and monitoring road management contracts (concessions, DBOM, OPRC, PMMR, or similar) internationally and in Bulgaria. It is expected that the Assignment will be led by an appropriately qualified Project Manager, accompanied by both key and supporting experts. The Consultant’s team of experts is expected to include at least the following positions: (i) Project Manager with experience in performance-based contracting and preferably 2 or more successfully completed similar assignments in the road management sector (i.e. PMMR-type projects) in the past 7 years. (ii) Civil/Road Engineer with experience in performance-based contracting; (iiii) Road Contracting/Procurement Expert with preferably 2 or more successfully completed similar assignments in the road management sector (i.e. PMMR-type projects) in the past 7 years; and (iii) Legal expert experienced in working with and knowledgeable in Bulgarian law; (iv) Economist with experience in public finance.
