Project Description:
The Municipality of Gyumri (the Client) has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD or the Bank) to provide technical assistance for the rehabilitation of primary and secondary streets, as well as the modernisation of public lighting in the City (the Project).


Assignment Description:
The Client is responsible for overall parking policy, regulation of parking spaces, tariffs for on-street parking, management of on-street parking and municipal car parks, revenue collection and enforcement.  The Transport and Housing and Environmental Protection Departments of Gyumri Municipality are responsible for enforcing the Traffic Act.

As a result of growing car ownership, the demand for parking in the city centre is rapidly increasing and demand far exceeds the available parking places.  This results in parking on sidewalks on a large scale, which adversely affects safety and the inner city environment. Furthermore, the shortage of parking spaces could inhibit the economic development of the city centre in the long term.

The City is interested to investigate options for improved management of parking provision within the town to ensure an effective use of urban roads and use of parking tariffs as a proxy user charge for road use. Additionally, it is interested in exploring possibilities for private sector participation in managing on-street parking in the city centre, including operating contracts and concessions.

In order to develop the parking sector, sound data on current and future parking demands must be available, a sustainable long-term Parking Strategy adopted by the City Council, and enforcement of parking regulations secured.

The Client wishes to engage a consultant (the “Consultant”) to analyse the present situation in the City, develop a long-term, coherent Parking Strategy to be approved by the City Council and elaborate an Action Plan setting out short- and long-term steps to improve parking provision in line with sustainable transport objectives (the “Assignment”).

The following are the main objectives of the Assignment:

  • analyse the current parking supply and demand in Gyumri city centre, and the current organisation and effectiveness of parking management and enforcement;
  • recommend a Parking Strategy, including future levels of on- and off-street parking supply and related tariffs; and
  • elaborate an Action Plan, including recommendations to increase parking supply, improve utilisation of existing spaces, and the associated organisational and financing structures. The Action Plan shall include a pilot parking scheme as an initial phase of the proposed scheme.

The extent of the study zone to be covered shall be agreed at the outset of the study but shall include as a minimum the current areas of paid parking managed by the City Council.

Additional information on the scope of services required is available from the full terms of reference: http://www.ebrd.com/documents/technical-cooporation/tor-gyumri-parking-strategy-.pdf

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 Q1 2017 and has an estimated overall duration of 6 months.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 160,000 (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: The Consultant shall be a firm or group of firms preferably with previous project experience related to urban parking projects, including developing parking strategies, parking action plans (including pilot) and the associated organisational and financing structures.

The Consultant’s expert team is expected to include key experts as follows:

Project Description:
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 Yerevan Municipality ('Yerevan' or the 'Client') has requested the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the 'EBRD' or the 'Bank') to provide technical assistance to improve its municipal solid waste management system through the financing of a new sanitary landfill at an already dedicated area close to the existing dumpsite in Nubarashen (the 'Project').

Assignment Description:
The Client now intends to retain a consulting company (the 'Consultant') to prepare a Livelihood Restoration Plan for the Project ('LRP' or 'Plan') and assist the Client in its implementation (the 'Assignment'). The contracting entity will be the Client.

The Plan will be prepared in accordance with the EBRD's 2014 Environment and Social Policy, specifically Performance Requirement ('PR') number 5 covering Land Acquisition, Involuntary Resettlement and Economic Displacement. A copy of the EBRD's Environmental and Social Policy can be found at http://www.ebrd.com/downloads/research/policies/esp-final.pdf.

The ultimate goal of the Plan is to ensure that no-one affected by the Project's implementation is left worse off than before the Project was put into place. The objective of the Assignment is to prepare the LRP and support the Client during the implementation of the Plan.

The selected Consultant is expected to provide the following services:
1. Ascertain whether there has been any change to pertinent legislation and/or policies in Armenia.
2. Complete a media search about the Project, Client, sector, country, etc.
3. Carry out a site visit to the dumpsite(s), specifically to:
a. hold discussions with potential project-affected men and women within the affected community, as well as relevant local authorities,
b. remind the relevant agencies responsible for land acquisition and resettlement of the EBRD policy requirements;
c. consult with other local/regional stakeholders
d. identify potential opportunities for social benefits/additionality
e. update the census and the socio-economic survey, if needed.
4. Prepare the Plan. Please see the Terms of Reference attached for what needs to be included in the Plan.
5. Support the Client with the implementation of the LRP.
