Armenia: Water Investment Programme - Feasibility Study

 | Published January 27, 2015  -  Deadline February 16, 2015

Assignment Description:
The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD" or the "Bank") is considering providing a sovereign loan of up to EUR 30 million to be on-lent to the Armenia Water and Sewerage CJSC (the "Company" or "AWSC"). The Bank’s loan is expected to be co-financed by a sovereign loan from the European Investment Bank ("EIB") of EUR 30 million and an investment grant from international donor(s) of EUR 20 million. The proceeds of the loan and grant will be used to rehabilitate water supply in ten regions of Armenia and wastewater infrastructure in three regions of Armenia as well as to procure operating assets such as water meters, control systems and pumps (the "Project"). The investments will reduce water losses and improve system performance and reduce operational costs. The wastewater investments will significantly reduce pollution through untreated sewerage.


The Government of Armenia ("GoA") has embarked on sector reforms in the water and wastewater sector. During the last decade, the GoA has restructured the water sector and adopted a new water code. The State Committee of Water Economy ("SCWE" or the "Client") of the Ministry of Agriculture was established in 2002. Management and lease contracts with private water operators have been concluded along with large investments in water infrastructure upgrades. All this resulted in a remarkable improvement in service delivery, the reduction of operation costs and the increase of revenues. Currently there are five water companies which are managed by three private operators:
- AWSC serving 0.62 million population in several regions of Armenia under a Management Contract with SAUR;
- Yerevan Djur serving 1 million population under a Lease Arrangement with Veolia;
- Three regional utilities (Nor Akunq, Lori and Shirak) serving 0.32 million population under a Management Contract with a consortium of companies MVV Decon, MVV Energie, AEG Service under SAUR’s leadership (since January 1, 2014).


Outside the service areas of the 5 major water and sewerage companies there are about 560 communities (with a population of 650,000) which have different organisational arrangements for water system management.


The involvement of the private sector has resulted in significant performance improvements, particularly in service delivery, reduction of non-revenue water, reduction of operation costs and increase of revenues.

However, there are several key challenges remaining to be addressed in the next decade: (i) low levels of tariff resulting in inadequate financial viability of water companies and low investments in capital maintenance and repair, (ii) low levels of service and high investment needs for communities not covered by water operators, (iii) high levels of water losses in the systems, (iv) lack of strategic planning in the sector, and (v) low coverage of wastewater collection and wastewater treatment.


The GoA is therefore about to launch a "second generation" of reforms in the water sector. It is agreed that after termination of the ongoing lease and management contracts the sector weaknesses should be addressed by restructuring not only the water management system but also the legal and regulatory framework with particular focus on institutional solutions for the rural water sector.


For that purpose the GoA in cooperation with international financial institutions (e.g. the Bank, WB, KfW, ADB and EIB) has initiated implementation of several technical assistance projects in order to properly design the "architecture" of the second generation of reforms in the water sector. These studies will be made available for the Consultant for background information for this assignment.


The EBRD is now seeking to select and engage a consultant (the "Consultant") to implement a Feasibility Study for the Project, including a technical, financial, environmental and social due diligence (the "Assignment").


The main objective of this Assignment is to assist the Bank with the technical, financial, environmental and social due diligence of the Project, as well as to identify how the Project can ensure that men and women are enabled to benefit equally from Project activities. Specifically, the Consultant is expected to implement the following tasks:
- Identify the priority investments including preparation of a detailed budget for the investment programme and propose to the Bank a final list of investments to be designed and prepared for financing;
- Perform technical due diligence to review the proposed investments and set out the rationale for the investments in the context of the investments selected, cost saving, reduction of water losses, restoration of the greatest hours of reliable water supply, rehabilitation of wastewater collection and treatment, and any other current and anticipated policies;
- Estimate the economic and financial internal rates of return ("IRR") of the proposed Project investments and identify key cost reduction elements;
- Prepare a Financial Model and projections for the Company;
- Prepare an affordability analysis;
- Undertake environmental and social ("E&S") due diligence including: defining the Project’s area of influence; reviewing the existing environmental and social conditions; identifying and assessing the Project’s environmental and social risks, adverse impacts and benefits; assessing the Project’s compliance with the EBRD Performance Requirements ("PRs") relevant to the Project, including local and EU environmental standards. Based on the results of E&S due diligence prepare an Environment.al and Social Action Plan ("ESAP") and a Stakeholder Engagement Plan ("SEP");
- Identify gender issues and perspectives that can be incorporated into Project activities; i.e. with respect to the rehabilitation of the service, implementation and operation of the Project.

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 2015 and last for 8 months.


Maximum Budget available for the Assignment:
EUR 1,200,000; 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.


Funding Source: It is expected that the Assignment will be funded by the EBRD Technical Cooperation funds. Contracting will be subject to availability of funding.


Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions.


Consultant Profile: Corporate services are required. The Consultant will be a firm or consortium of firms with extensive experience in:

Executing Agency (Client): Yerevan Municipality The Client Contact Person: Mr. Tigran Igityan Chief of Division, Financial Department Yerevan Municipality str. 1 Argishti, Yerevan 0015, Armenia E-mail: tigran.igityan@yahoo.com; tigran.igityan@yerevan.am Tel: +37410514-202 or +37498201434 The EBRD Contact Person: Ms. Paula Alegria Senior Advisor, Technical Co-operation European Bank for Reconstruction and Development One Exchange Square London EC2A 2JN Tel: + 44 20 7338 7589 Fax: +44 20 7338 7451 E-mail: alegriap@ebrd.com Project Description: The Yerevan Municipality (“Yerevan”, the “Municipality” or the “Client”) has requested the European Bank of Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) to provide technical assistance to improve its municipal solid waste (MSW) management system through the financing of a new sanitary landfill at an already dedicated area close to the existing dumpsite in Nubarashen (the “Project”). 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 Project will finance a new sanitary landfill at an already dedicated area close to the existing dumpsite in Nubarashen. The landfill management company – to be formed at project launch – will receive TC funded capacity building support to establish efficient operations, enable knowledge transfer and introduction of international best practices in the sector. The solid waste collection in Yerevan has been contracted to a private operator. The operator will be obliged to pay a tipping fee for deposited waste at the new landfill. Once the landfill operations have been established the Banks (EBRD in cooperation with its co-financing partners the European Investment Bank (“EIB”) and the European Union’s Neighbourhood Investment Facility (“EU NIF”)) will support the Municipality to assess private sector interest in operating the landfill. The whole population of Yerevan (one third of the country) are expected to benefit from improved solid waste services as a result of the construction of the new sanitary landfill site. The Project is also expected to have an environmental benefit in that it will lead to the reduction of around 3,000 tonnes of methane gas emitted, which is the equivalent of 60,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. The Project is expected to finance the following investments: Construction of new landfill (including handling station for sorting the recyclable fractions, access road, weighbridge, tyre wash station, office and administration building, garage hall, facility petrol station, additional facilities); and Specialised vehicles and machinery for landfill operation It is currently envisaged that the Project will be delivered as a Public-Private-Partnership (“PPP”).

Kotayk Solid Waste Management Project - Corporate Development, Stakeholder Participation and Municipality Support Programme

AMENDMENT: EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST SHOULD BE SUBMITTED IN ENGLISH AND ARMENIAN (OR RUSSIAN) LANGUAGE Executing Agency (Client): RA Ministry of Territorial Administration on behalf of the Municipality of Hrazdan (acting for all eight participating municipalities) Assignment Description: The Republic of Armenia is divided into ten Marzes (provinces). Kotayk Marz (“Kotayk”) has a population of 240,000 and an area of 2100 km2. The capital of Kotayk is the City of Hrazdan. The Ministry of Urban Development (“MUD”) has approached the EBRD with a request to prepare and finance a regional sanitary landfill in Kotayk. This would be the country’s first sanitary landfill. Kotayk was selected due to its proximity to Yerevan, with the intention of creating a demonstration project for the entire country. The Project would focus on Abovian (population 60,000), Hrazdan (population 53,000), Charentsavan (population 18,000), Yeghvard (population 12,000) and adjacent villages including Tsakhadzor, Byureghavan and Nor Hachn as well as Sevan in the neighbouring Gegharkunik region (together, the “Participating Municipalities”). Ultimately, MUD intends to build seven regional sanitary landfills to serve the whole country. The Project comprises a EUR 3.5 million loan from the EBRD to the Government of Armenia under a sovereign guarantee, co-financed by a capex grant of EUR 3.5 million from the EU Neighbourhood Investment Facility. The project will comprise an upgrade of a selected existing dumpsite in Hrazdan into a regional sanitary landfill of approximately 20 ha, closure of remaining dumpsites (this will not be a part of the project – just monitored by the EBRD), purchase of vehicles, bins and equipment for waste management, possibly tendering out of waste collection in a transparent manner to private companies (subject for further assessment in parallel with project implementation) and creation of a Landfill Operating Company (the “Company”), operating as a commercially sustainable unit. At present, solid waste is disposed at six major dumpsites and numerous small dumpsites in Kotayk. Waste collection in some municipalities is carried out by communal service companies or is tendered out to private companies. In residential areas households dispose of waste into small containers, which are emptied by collection trucks. In other cities, due to the lack of containers and bins, waste is piled up at a small dumpsite with subsequent loading onto collection vehicles manually with spades or direct loading of waste delivered by residents into the waste collection trucks available according to schedule. Residents of rural areas generating about 30 per cent of total household waste amount in Kotayk have rather poor waste collection and management arrangements. This is inefficient and results in street littering and illegal dumping. At present the average waste tariff collection rate is less than 50 per cent. The responsibility for project implementation will remain with the Participating Municipalities. A Project Implementation Unit (“PIU”) will be established by Hrazdan, with representatives from each of the Participating Municipalities and the Kotayk Regional Administration, as well as from relevant ministries. The PIU will coordinate project implementation and ensure the interface between the Participating Municipalities as final beneficiaries and the various financiers and donors, with the relevant governmental ministries and agencies involved in the Project. The PIU will also be in charge of the preparation of consolidated reports to be sent to the Bank, on behalf of the Borrower, as well as the approval and channelling of the disbursement applications to the Ministry of Finance. To facilitate the implementation of the Project, the PIU is seeking to engage a consultant to support the Participating Municipalities in the establishment of the Company and further in a Corporate Development and Stakeholder Engagement Programme (“SPP”) for the Company (once established). The assignment consists of two main parts: (i) Part I: Support to PIU in establishment of the Company and a Shareholder Support Programme for the Participating Municipalities and (ii) Part II: Support to the Company for corporate development and stakeholder participation. The key counterpart for Part I of the assignment will be the PIU created by the Participating Municipalities while the key counterpart for Part II of the assignment is expected to be the Company (once established). Part I.1 – Establishment of the Company The Consultant shall assist the PIU and Participating Municipalities to establish the Company. The aim is to assist the PIU in selection of human resources with relevant/suitable qualifications; prepare a list of equipment needed for proper functioning of the Company and carry out initial trainings of staff on the basics of landfill management. Note: The Company will be wholly-owned by the Participating Municipalities. Rural communes will only pay a tipping fee for the waste transported to landfill. Hence, Part I.2 of the support programme will be carried out only for the Participating Municipalities. Part I.2 – Support Programme for the Participating Municipalities (i.e. the Shareholder Support Programme) The Consultant shall assist the PIU and the Participating Municipalities to implement the Project Agreement, which will be a key component of the financial structure for the Project. A related aim of the Shareholder Support Programme is to raise institutional capacity within the Participating Municipalities to assist them in managing the project in an effective manner as well as to raise their financial planning capacity and thereby improve their creditworthiness. Part II.1 – Corporate Development Programme for the Company The Consultant shall assist the Company to establish commercial standing, service and environmental and social performance by helping to identify and implement the necessary corporate, financial and operational improvements. This will be achieved via the development and implementation of a Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme. The Consultant shall also assist the Company to develop a medium-term focused corporate development plan and to improve its corporate planning capacity to assist its ongoing transition towards a self-sustaining entity and commercial operations. Part II.2 – Stakeholder Participation Programme Another objective is to implement the SPP, aimed at enhancing public ownership by encouraging, increasing public participation in the provision of solid waste services (service quality, rehabilitation activities, tariffs integrating poverty and social issues) and raising public awareness on issues related to the project implementation. Furthermore, the SPP will integrate poverty and social issues into the proposed tariff reforms and thereby assist the Company to improve its corporate governance. Throughout the entire assignment, the Consultant should coordinate all relevant activities with the consultant selected for the project related “Project Implementation Support Services”. The Consultant must set-out clear communication lines with the beneficiaries, so that they are able to draw on the support of the Consultant as required. It is envisaged that this will be best supplied through a combination of long-term and short-term expertise. Additional consultancy services are required for the Project. A further procurement notice has been published for the “Kotayk Solid Waste Management – Project Implementation Support” (TCS ID 34964). Please refer to NOTE 2 in section “Notes” of this procurement notice. 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 2015 and has an estimated overall duration of 30 months.

Armenia Water Investment Programme - PPP Transaction Adviser Clarification (dated 21/11/2014) Question 1: Re the requirement: "team Leader will ensure the presence in the field in Armenia during 75% of the overall period of the project." We are wondering if this requires the team leader to be present in Armenia for 10.5 months, or if the combined presence of our local project manager, other experts from the team, and the team leader for a portion of the project period would also adequately fulfil this requirement. Answer 1: The requirement concerning the team leader's presence of 75% of the overall project duration applies only to the Team Leader and cannot be combined or shared among the rest of the team and its experts. This requirement for the Team Leader is necessary taking into account that provision of the transaction advisory services will be intense. Background: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development ("EBRD" or the "Bank") is considering providing a sovereign loan of up to EUR 30 million to be on-lent to the Armenia Water and Sewerage CJSC (the "Company" or "AWSC"). The Bank’s loan would be co-financed by a sovereign loan from EIB of EUR 30 million and an investment grant from international donor(s) of EUR 20 million. The proceeds of the loan and grant will be used to rehabilitate water supply in ten regions of Armenia and wastewater infrastructure in three regions of Armenia. It will also be used to procure operating assets such as water meters, control systems and pumps. The investments will reduce water losses and improve system performance and reduce operational costs. The wastewater investments will significantly reduce pollution through untreated sewerage. The Government of Armenia ("GoA") has embarked on sector reforms in the water and wastewater sector. During the last decade, the GoA has restructured the water sector and adopted a new water code. The State Committee on Water Economy ("SCWE") of the Ministry of Territorial Administration ("MTA") was established in 2002. Management and lease contracts with private water operators have been concluded along with high investments in water infrastructure upgrades. All this resulted in a remarkable improvement in service delivery, the reduction of operation costs and the increase of revenues. Currently there are five water companies which are managed by three private operators. The SCWE has delegated the management of state water and sewerage infrastructure to the following companies: -Yerevan Djur – serving 1 million population under a Lease Arrangement with Veolia; -AWSC – serving 0.62 million population under a Management Contract with SAUR; -Regional Utilities (Nor Akunq, Lori and Shirak) - serving 0.32 million population under a Management Contract with a consortium of companies MVV decon, MVV Energie, AEG Service under SAUR’s leadership (since January 1, 2014). All these Public-Private Partnership ("PPP") contracts expire in May 2016 and will be subject to new tenders. Outside of service areas of the 5 major water and sewerage companies, there are about 560 communities (with a population of 650,000) which have different organisational arrangements for water system management. However, there are several key challenges remaining to be addressed in the next decade: (i) low levels of tariff resulting in inadequate financial viability of water companies and low investments in capital maintenance and repair, (ii) low level of service and high investment needs for communities not covered by water operators, (iii) high level of water losses in the systems, (iv) lack of strategic planning in the sector, (v) low coverage of wastewater services and wastewater treatment. The GoA is therefore about to launch a "second generation" of reforms in the water sector. It is agreed that after termination of the ongoing lease and management contracts the sector weaknesses should be addressed by restructuring not only the water management system but also the legal and regulatory framework with particular focus on institutional solutions for the rural water sector. For that purpose the government in cooperation with international financial institutions (e.g. the Bank, WB, KfW, ADB and EIB,) has initiated implementation of several technical assistance projects in order to properly design the “architecture” of the second generation of reforms in the water sector. The Water Sector Study, supported by KfW, has assisted the GoA in preparing and implementing a water sector reform and resulted in the following main findings upon which the government will base its decisions on water sector institutional and financial set up for long-term period: -Tariffs: application of unified water tariffs without state subsidies for operational and maintenance expenses after May 2016 is recommended. In the meantime, water tariffs until 2033 have been forecasted. -Operators/service areas: it is recommended to involve one operational private company serving all five water utilities’ service areas, taking into account that under consideration of affordable unified water tariffs without any governmental subsidies for operational expenses after May 2016 one operational private company is the only feasible option. However, there are some risks related to limited competition for the next PPP-contract (due to market entry barriers). These risks might be mitigated through including appropriate provisions in the PPP-contract and strengthening state authorized asset manager’s capacities in asset management and PPP monitoring. -Contract type and term: a lease contract for 15 years is recommended. -Procurement procedure: the consultant shall recommend the most suitable procedure based on the results of existing surveys and additional studies, if necessary. The main beneficiary of this assignment is the SCWE. SCWE’s main responsibilities are (i) the general oversight for sector management and operation, (ii) overall authority for the management and operation of state owned drinking water supply, wastewater collection, treatment and disposal facilities, and (iii) issuance and monitoring of contracts for third party management, operation and maintenance of water systems. Other main stakeholders and project partners are: the Water Resources Management Agency and Public Services Regulatory Commission Assignment Description: The State Committee for Water Systems ("SCWS" or the "Client") now intends to retain a consultant (the "Consultant") to generally assist in the sustainable development of water infrastructure in the urban and rural water supply and sanitation sector in Armenia as well as to improve sector efficiency and effectiveness.
