Clarification 1 (issued 9/2/2017) to be accessed here.

Project Description: Jordan is facing a severe humanitarian and development crisis that threatens both its short- and long-term development. Recurring political crises in the region have forced a large number of displaced people (currently mainly from Syria) to seek refuge in Jordan. The 1.3 million Syrian refugees living outside of refugee camps are direct users of municipal services, including water supply and sanitation. The increased demand for water and wastewater resources also results in increased pressure for electricity, which represent up to 60 per cent of operating costs in the water and wastewater sector of Jordan.

Despite the Ministry of Water and Irrigation (“MWI”) and the Water Authority of Jordan (“WAJ”) putting a lot of effort into improving the overall quality of the services, the financial and operational performance of the sector still needs improving. Combined water and wastewater tariffs are insufficient to cover operating costs in the majority of areas.

As parts of its response to the crisis the Bank will manage a EUR 30 million investment grant to be provided by the European Union (EU) (the “EU investment grant”) to the WAJ, to finance "turnkey" contracts for construction of c. 25 MW photovoltaic plants on a net meeting basis in up to 5 pumping stations, or on a wheeling basis in Al-Mafraq to produce electricity for water pumping in Jordan (the “Project”). The key objective of this Project is to tackle the increased stress on water infrastructures in the most cost-effective way by generating energy from renewable sources in order to reduce the sector’s strong dependency on conventional power.

Assignment Description: At this stage, WAJ and the Bank are keen to start the procurement process, while in parallel, the minimum technical requirements are being prepared. WAJ require an external consultant (the “Consultant”) to assist them with site assessment (restudy of all sites to identify the capacities required for each site according to the available fund), the tender document preparation , tender process, including O&M process & concepts (prepare a long term service contract with the winning company), selection of the suitable land for each site (the “assignment”). The assignment is designed to assist WAJ in the tender documents review, preparation and evaluation to ensure compliance with EBRD's Public Procurement Policies and Rules (“PPRs”) and the environmental and social requirements of the Bank.

The overall objective of this assignment is to facilitate the timely and effective procurement of the Project components by rendering assistance to WAJ in the preparation of tender documents, including technical specifications, evaluation of tenders in line the Bank’s PPRs.
The Bank will be provided with an elaboration of all tender documentation for the Project, and the Consultant will provide support WAJ to conduct the tender process in accordance with the Bank's rules.

b) The possibility of future expansion;
c) The impact of the project on the economic activities of the site, if any;
d) Improving the living conditions of nearby residents around the site, if any;
e) Jobs creation (temporary during construction, permanent during operations);
f) Incorporation of Environmental and Social Action Plan (“ESAP”) requirements, incumbent on WAJ and the developer of the Project to structure the Project to meet international financial institutions’ requirements, into the tender documentation and selection process;
g) List the relevant approvals required for the project implementation.
• Establish appropriate qualification criteria and technical requirements based on the above;
• Prepare tender documents, including technical specifications and requirements, Organisation & Management process & concepts (prepare a service contract with the winning company) and training course for WAJ staff;
