Egypt: Cairo Metro Line 1 Modernisation Phase 1

 | Published October 6, 2016  -  Deadline November 3, 2016

Project Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the "EBRD" or the "Bank") aims at providing finance of up to EUR 200 million to the Ministry of Transport represented by National Authority for Tunnels ("NAT" or the "Client") for the planned upgrade of Cairo Metro Line 1 works, including electromechanical, telecommunications, signalling, centralised control, track and civil works (the "Project").

Assignment Description: The Bank now intends to engage a consulting company (the "Consultant") to conduct the due diligence of the technical, economic, environmental and social aspects of the Project (the "Assignment").

The expected outcome of the Assignment is a due diligence on the basis of which the Bank has sufficient information to decide on the proposed investment and 1) to prepare a comprehensive due diligence of the proposed investment and procurement strategy, including review of any design gaps as needed, 2) review of maintenance requirements and asset management practices for Line 1, 3) prepare an economic and financial appraisal of the project according to a recognised international standard; and 4) identify and assess the potentially significant existing and future adverse environmental and social impacts associated with the Client’s current operations and the proposed Project, assess compliance with applicable laws and the EBRD ESP and PRs, determine the measures needed to prevent or minimise and mitigate the adverse impacts, and identify potential environmental and social opportunities, including those that would improve the environmental and social sustainability of the Project and/or the associated current operations.

The selected Consultant will provide the following tasks:

1) Technical / economic due diligence
The Consultant will provide support to the Bank during the due diligence. This support will include:
• prepare the business case for the project (rationale and benefits), including review of cost estimates;
• review design and tender documents to ensure compatibility with relevant design standards and operational requirements; identify any possible needed additionalities for project design and/or works contract scoping;
• perform an economic and financial assessment (Internal Rate of Return (IRR)) for the Project, including the definition of a 'do nothing' scenario and preparation of a proper financial model;
• perform an emissions benefit assessment (including modal shift benefits) and an energy audit to determine energy efficiency savings as a result of the project;
• review existing asset management practices for Line 1 and recommend possible improvements.

2) Environmental and social analysis
The assessment process will be commensurate with, and proportional to, the potential impacts and issues of the Project and the Client’s existing operations. The assessment will cover, in an integrated way, all relevant direct and indirect environmental and social impacts and issues of the Client’s operations, the Project and the relevant stages of the project cycle (e.g. pre-construction, construction, operation, and decommissioning or closure and reinstatement).

The Environmental and Social Impact Assessment (ESIA) will also determine whether further studies are required, focusing on specific risks and impacts, such as climate change, human rights and / or gender.

The Environmental and Social Audit is required to assess the Client’s current operations in terms of compliance with national legislation, national or local permitting requirements, the relevant provisions of the EBRD Environmental and Social Policy and Performance Requirements (2014) and pertinent EU environmental standards. Further, the audit must review possible historical environmental and social issues, such as potential contamination of soil and/or groundwater or land acquisition disputes.

Assignment Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in Q4, 2016 and has an estimated overall duration of 3 months.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 225,000; 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 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.

Project Description:
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) is financing a sovereign loan of 55 million Euros for the expansion of wastewater treatment in the Kafr El Sheikh (KES) governorate to be on-granted to the state-owned Kafr El-Sheikh Water and Sanitation Company (KWSC), which is a subsidiary of the Holding Company of Water and Wastewater (the Client).

The Kafr El Sheikh Water Expansion Programme (the Project) is co-financed between the EBRD, the European Investment Bank and the EU Neighbourhood Investment Facility and will provide first time sanitation to around 470,000 people in the three districts of Burullus, Desouk and Motobas in the KES governorate through the (i) construction of two new wastewater treatment plants; (ii) the expansion of three existing wastewater treatment plants and (iii) the laying of about 700 km of pipes together with the installation of 52 pump stations.

During recent consultation meetings, representatives of civil society requested clarity about the bulk of investments taking place in the KES governorate and to be timely informed about the construction work of water and wastewater facilities and related service disruption. Civil society participants also recognised that a meaningful engagement of community representatives and grass root level organisations is a priority area where progress can be made in water and wastewater management.

Project Description: Municipal services in Egypt all face urgent demands for investment to provide better access and improved quality. Key challenges exist in upgrading and decentralising the municipal infrastructure sector. As a result, Egypt’s largest cities suffer from severe congestion and air pollution problems and large investment gaps exist in mass transit systems, bus operations and river transportation services. Low sanitation coverage, particular in rural areas, in combination with deficiencies in wastewater treatment, results in severe water quality problems. Insufficient managerial and financial autonomy, very low tariffs, lack of incentives to improve performance, and continued overstaffing also lead to a poor financial situation of most utility companies. In addition to that, the regulatory and legal organisation of the sector shows weaknesses hampering new investments and the efficient provision of services.

To tackle such problems, authorities have shown an increasing interest in pursuing partnerships with the private sector to fund infrastructure projects. In 2006, the Ministry of Finance created a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Unit and adopted a PPP programme, aimed to allow for and promote the retraction of the government’s role in the economy and pave the way towards a market economy in which the private sector is an active participant.

Nevertheless, further challenges remain in the planning and implementation of PPP structures, especially in the municipal infrastructure sector. Best practice precedencies through the implementation of pilot projects have not yet been established, key impediments such as the public perception of PPPs as privatisation and the resistance to change pose further challenges to the agenda. Hence, the PPP Unit - responsible for establishing the national PPP policy framework for implementation, manage PPP transactions and provide technical and advisory support as well as ensure compliance with legislative framework - encounters significant obstacles and a high workload burden. 

The Egyptian Ministry of Finance has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) to support the PPP Unit in designing, structuring and implementing PPP projects in the municipal infrastructure sector, and develop an action plan to overcome obstacles and key impediments. This will notably include the coordination of the PPP programme and process across the involved Ministries, private sector, and financial market (the “assignment”).

Assignment Description: The PPP Unit is seeking the support of experts (the “Consultant”) to identify and prepare projects where PPPs can be fostered. These services would be mainly focussed on technical, financial, legal and social/environmental advice to support the PPP Unit in in the municipal infrastructure sector.

The objectives of supporting the PPP Unit are to: (i) set PPP methodologies and guidelines in line with the local legislation; and (ii) promote sub-sovereign financial solutions and proactively engage with both the PPP Unit and private sector participants to identify opportunities for future PPP investments as well as to assist the PPP Unit in designing, structuring and implementing sound projects.

The main outcome of the assignment is to support the PPP Unit to build sufficient and sustainable capacity in order to help achieve the aforementioned objectives.

The Consultant will operate within the PPP Unit (currently staffed with 9 people), deliver active support and work with relevant staff members of the PPP Unit to enable the transfer of skills and knowledge. Specifically, one of the roles of the Consultant is to assist the PPP Unit in developing and promoting PPP structures in the municipal infrastructure sector to achieve increased efficiencies, including operational and financial sustainability and an improved quality of service.

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:

1. assist the PPP Unit in preparing and assessing technical, financial, legal and social/environmental due diligence
2. train key staff
3. assist the PPP Unit to launch and manage the Private Sector Participation tenders.

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 mid-2017 and has an estimated overall duration of 36 months.

Egypt: Cairo Integrated Transport Project - Inclusion Component

 | Published October 22, 2015  -  Deadline November 5, 2015
cpvs

Project Description:

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD or the "Bank") is considering providing a number of sovereign loans to the Arab Republic of Egypt ("Egypt") and (secured) loans to private sector Concessionaires, with potential co-financing of other commercial banks /IFIs. The intended investments in Cairo's urban transport system target the improvement of functionality, quality, and efficiency of high-capacity public transport services. This is expected to include:

· Cairo Metro Line ll, (i) the purchase of a total of 13 air-conditioned train sets (8 wagons per train) to be operated on Cairo Metro’s Line II and (ii) a portion of the long-term outsourced maintenance contract for Line II’s entire fleet covering mainly spare parts and equipment

· Cairo Metro Lines V and VI, financing of the future metro rail infrastructure development.

· Cairo Bus Sector Reform Project, of 500 clean CNG buses and related depot investments.

· Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) PPP, constructing segregated bus lanes within the existing road right of way.

· Nile Ferry PPP, for the modernisation and expansion of the existing ferry service in Cairo.

· Heliopolis Tram Modernisation, a comprehensive light rail investment programme in Cairo consisting of two operations.

For the EBRD, economic inclusion - the opening up of economic opportunities to previously under-served social groups - is integral to development. In Egypt, youth unemployment currently stands at over 28 per cent, and 33 per cent of young people are not in education, employment or training. Inclusion Component TC assignment is intended as part of the Bank’s Integrated Approach ("IA") to the Greater Cairo’s urban transport sector. The projects will introduce youth inclusion through inclusive procurement: The projects under the IA are expected to achieve positive inclusion impact for young people by opening up on-site training opportunities as part of the maintenance contracts to be awarded by individual clients under the IA. This on-site training will complement existing local vocational training provision and lead towards the achievement of an accredited vocational skill certificate. The tender documentation will include a requirement (on a best effort basis) to make available on-site training placements as part of a partnership with local vocational schools and job centres. Systemic impact will stem from the piloting, optimising and introduction of these inclusive procurement practices in the Egyptian context over the course of the projects under this IA in close dialogue with the new Ministry for Technical and Vocational Education in Egypt (MoTET) and other relevant stakeholders.

Assignment Description:

The EBRD is seeking to engage an experienced technical consultant to assess and substantiate the potential inclusion impact of the Project, to develop a bespoke inclusion action plan for at least four projects, to support each client in the implementation of this plan and to draw on lessons learned and best practice throughout this process. Furthermore, the assignment will focus on creating systemic impact by initiating and maintaining an effective dialogue with Egypt's Public Procurement agency to test the model developed by this project and optimise it for future use.

The Consultant's tasks will be structured around the following objectives:

Objective 1: Establish the number of jobs and on-site training opportunities that will become available as part of the maintenance contracts across the different IA projects.

Objective 2: Provide a short overview of current international industry standards and best practice and establish a baseline for Egypt in relation to local hiring and on-site training opportunities (including vocational training standards) targeted at young people in related sector. Compare these to current practice in Egypt and outline related gaps.

Objective 3: Develop a clear inclusion methodology and bespoke action plans for (at least four) projects under the IA, involving key stakeholders (Client(s), relevant ministries, the National Procurement Office, vocational training institutions, job centres, main international and local contractors and sub-contractors and other relevant stakeholders) to open up on-site training opportunities (and related future employment opportunities) to young people. The methodology should go beyond current practice in the infrastructure maintenance industry in the country (The reference to “maintenance” includes all those companies typically involved in infrastructure maintenance including, inter alia, engineers, technical specialists, project managers, quantity surveyors, etc. ). Drawing on models of international best practice, the bespoke action plans should clearly reflect and respond to the specific circumstances and requirements of the construction industry and other local stakeholders in Egypt so as to be relevant and effective in that context. Each action plan also needs to include cost models and specific recommendations as to how to integrate the inclusion component within the overall Project design and delivery plan. The scope for an event , potentially supported by the EBRD, gathering these players to present the objectives, understand better respective positions and receive feedback from industry representatives should be presented.

Objective 4: Project delivery, capacity building and monitoring support to the client throughout Project implementation. This should include (i) specific technical support to the client and key stakeholders (specifically contractors, job brokerage agents and training providers) to ensure the effective implementation of the inclusion methodology; and (ii) capacity building to the client and relevant stakeholders, (iii) ongoing impact monitoring (including the numbers or young women and men trained, skill levels achieved, and – where possible - future progression) to establish the impact achieved to identify lessons learned and recommend actions to optimise the methodology.

Objective 5: Direct engagement with the National Procurement Office in Egypt to integrate similar inclusive procurement models across other areas of public procurement in the country in order to achieve wider systemic impact.

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

Assignment Start Date and Duration: The Assignment is expected to start in November 2015 and have an estimated overall duration of 3 years.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 280,000 (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 special status of the Bank 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: It is expected that the Assignment will be funded by EBRD Technical Cooperation Donor Programme. Consultant selection and contracting will be subject to availability of funding.

Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions. Individuals or consulting firms interested in nominating an expert from any country may apply.

Consultant Profile: Individual services are required. Consultancy firms may propose services of an individual expert.
