Azeri Agricultural Finance Facility (AzAFF): Technical Co-operation Program

 | Published January 30, 2015  -  Deadline February 27, 2015
cpvs

Assignment Background: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) is launching the Azerbaijan Agricultural Finance Facility (AzAFF) or the Facility) to support the current drive to develop agriculture in the country. This is in line with its strategy to help promote market-driven economic diversification, including a special emphasis on the agricultural sector and support to local banks in developing their capacity to increase agrilending. In 2014, the Bank commissioned a diagnostic study on the Azerbaijan agricultural sector and assessment of the opportunities for increasing micro, small and medium-sized enterprises’ (MSMEs’) access to finance. Despite various persisting bottlenecks and issues, a promising combination of factors has the potential to make agriculture a strong backbone of the national economy. In absolute terms, the agricultural sector in Azerbaijan has grown at an average annual rate of 13.1% from 2005 to 2013. Despite this growth, the relative share of agriculture in the overall economy has continued to decline, mainly due to faster growth observed in the oil and gas sector. The Bank will provide credit lines up to a maximum of USD 40 million in total to eligible Participating Financial Institutions (PFIs) for on-lending to farmers and other entities in the agricultural sector. It is envisaged that the Facility will be combined with a portfolio-based, risk-sharing mechanism and a capacity building technical cooperation (TC) programme for PFIs, with links to the EBRD’s Small Business Support (SBS) programme, to increase the direct impact of the Facility. It is expected that ca. 6 banks will participate in the Facility. Assignment Scope: The Bank wishes to engage a Consultant to provide specialist consultancy services in various aspects of agrilending to eligible PFIs and selected entities with agriculture as a focus. This will include the design of robust credit products tailored to agricultural seasonal finance as well as a general upgrading of skills across the sector. The components of the TC assignment shall include: PFIs: Tailored TC interventions aimed at sustainable credit mechanisms to enable PFIs to develop and deliver financial products and services tailored to farmers and other entities with agriculture as a focus – Institutional capacity building. Services shall include: (i) Develop and implement comprehensive organisational capacity building measures and agricultural lending skills, procedures and strategies tailored to the needs of PFIs; (ii) Develop, test and deliver new agrilending products specifically tailored to the target group and optimize existing products; (iii) Introduce innovative financing schemes and delivery channels; (iv) Provide training and coaching (including train-the-trainer) to specifically address the target group needs and with a view to ensuring the sustainability of the training process; (v) Assist PFIs in marketing and outreach to the target group. Sub-borrowers: Training and advisory services will be provided as follows: (i) Financial literacy training to farmers concentrated in the regions with the highest agricultural potential; (ii) Workshops to introduce advanced farming techniques and international best practices in selected sub-sectors in regions with specialization in those sub-sectors; (iii) Specific technical assistance to selected eligible recipients of agricultural loans above AZN 300k. The Consultant will also be expected to: (i) Facilitate activities between PFIs and SBS during which referral services will be provided to farmers and other entities and implement other measures to ensure synergies between stakeholders; (ii) Provide general Programme management support functions, including risk sharing claims and administration functions, visibility measures and consolidated reporting. 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 April 2015, and have an estimated duration of 36 months. Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 1,600,000 (exclusive of VAT). Subject to availability of funding, the performance of the selected Consultant and the specific needs of the Bank, the Assignment may be extended beyond the current scope. 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 expected source of funding for the Assignment is the European Neighbourhood Investment Facility (EU NIF).

Tamiz Shahar Solid Waste Project - Feasibility Study

 | Published March 21, 2016  -  Deadline April 12, 2016
cpvs

Project Description:

"Tamiz Shahar" JSC (the "Company", the "Client" or "Tamiz Shahar"), a joint stock company 100% owned by the state, manages waste disposal in Baku (the "City"). The Company plans to undertake construction of two transfer stations including sorting facilities north of Baku and south west of Baku. This will allow the Company to optimise solid waste transportation, reducing costs and improving the quality of municipal services.

The Integrated Solid Waste Management ("ISWM") project report prepared in 2012 (the "2012 Report") with the support from the Azerbaijan Government (the "Government") represented by the Ministry of Economy of Azerbaijan and the World Bank confirmed the feasibility of the proposed transfer stations.

Out of 1.8 million tons of solid waste generated in Baku annually, only around fifty per cent is officially collected and disposed with the remainder disposed of at illegal dump sites. A number of small companies, with the majority being publicly owned, perform collection and transportation of solid waste in the City. Tariffs for collection/transportation and disposal are regulated by the state. At the moment, the tariffs are set well below the cost recovery level, which results in significant governmental subsidies to the sector.

The Company was created in 2009 to manage the municipal solid waste sector and implement large scale priority projects. The Company's operating activities comprise management of the Balakhani solid waste landfill (120 hectare) that serves Baku and its suburbs covering a total area of 2,130 sq. meters. The Company is also running Balakhani Material Recovery Facility with an annual capacity of 200 thousand tonnes and Waste to Energy Plant with the annual capacity of 500.000 ton of MSW.

In light of the above, Tamiz Shahar and the Ministry of Economy have approached the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the "Bank" or "EBRD") with a request to assess the possibility of financing construction of two transfer stations and sorting facilities (the "Project").

Assignment Description:

The Bank wishes to engage a suitably qualified consultant (the "Consultant") to prepare a comprehensive feasibility study ("FS") to confirm the priority investment programme (the "PIP") and evaluate its benefits, including assessing its environmental and social feasibility.

The Consultant will review the detailed requirements, verify whether a bankable project meeting the objectives below has been proposed, and prepare any required information regarding the project in order to achieve these objectives. This Project will be based on an effective least-cost investment programme. The proposed investment plan will be justified on the basis of thorough technical, legislative, financial and economic analysis and review. Furthermore, the Consultant will develop an efficient PIP, including procurement schedule, and carry out an assessment of the resource efficiency opportunities (including energy efficiency and renewable energy potential and the impact on GHG emissions) and environmental and social impacts of the investment programme. The Consultant shall take into account the findings of the existing ISWM project prepared in 2012, including justification of construction of the transfer stations. While the ISWM covered a broader scope, the PIP within this Project is to be developed around construction of the two transfer stations and any auxiliary investments that may be required within the proposed investment budget. The Consultant will closely co-operate with the Company while developing the PIP.

Specific objectives of the assignment shall include, inter alia:

a) Review the needs of the Client and the Government, including definition and establishment of the area to be covered by the investment.

b) Review the applicable legislation at local and national level in place regarding waste (e.g. targets on material and energy production from waste), and assess the implications on the Project.

c) Review and analyse the current system of solid waste separation, collection and reprocessing for recycling and, if appropriate, make recommendations on how this could be improved, taking into consideration international best practices in waste management (e.g. European Commission’s Best Available Techniques ("BAT") reference documents ("BREFs")) and following the EU waste hierarchy options at the maximum extent. Identify potential industrial users of separated materials and barriers existing to the development of a market for such products.

d) Review and analyse the current situation of the waste treatment/separation/ recycling/landfilling in the area in terms of condition of major equipment and facilities, recent past years performances, operation and maintenance ("O&M") practices, capacity of the City to manage and address all relevant environmental and social risks and impacts, compliance with national laws and regulations and any liability issues.

e) Carry out a detailed analysis to select the best transfer and processing solution and confirm or (if necessary) select site location for the facilities, including existing and new locations, taking into consideration international best practices in waste management. The Consultant will produce a multi-criteria analysis justifying the selected option and summarise it in tabular form.

f) Carry out an Environmental and Social Assessment (E&S Due Diligence, "ESDD") of the proposed Project to identify its environmental and social risks, impacts and benefits and to structure the Project to comply with the EBRD Environmental and Social Policy ("ESP") and Performance Requirements ("PRs").

g) Estimate potential reductions in greenhouse gas ("GHG") emissions arising from a streamlined transportation following construction of the new transfer stations.

h) Based on the results of the above, draw up a detailed PIP, including construction of the two transfer stations and – if relevant and within the available budget – recycling facilities.

i) Make necessary recommendations for institutional changes (organisation of solid waste management, changes in law or institutional, including human resources, changes) regarding solid waste management in the City.

j) Prepare a strategic and operational plan to enable improvements in the collection (and if appropriate, recycling) service, including route optimisation.

k) Conduct a financial analysis of the PIP on transfer stations to be constructed. Create a business plan over the lifetime of the loan with detailed calculations of realistic capital expenditure ("CAPEX"), revenues, expenses, debt service coverage ratio and Internal Rates of Return ("IRR") (both economic and financial).

l) To prepare financial projections for the Company including annual balance sheets, income and cash flow statements.

m) Design a general timetable of the implementation of the Project for each potential scenario.

n) Review the potential for private sector participation ("PSP") in waste collection and disposal (and if appropriate, recycling) (e.g. design-build-operate for any part of the Project, privatisation of collection in parts of the City, operation of the landfill, etc.).

o) Support discussions on the Project proposal between the EBRD and the relevant stakeholders as necessary.

p) Calculation of the Bank's standard measuring indicators and SRI impact indicators.

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 Q2 2016 and has an estimated overall duration of 20 weeks.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 250,000 (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.
