Sisak Urban Transport - Project Implementation Support and Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme

 | Published October 20, 2014  -  Deadline November 21, 2014
cpvs

Sisak Urban Transport - Project Implementation Support and Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme The Deadline for the submission of Expressions of Interest for this assignment has been updated. Background: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD or the Bank) has been requested by the City of Sisak (the City, Client or Sisak) to provide loan financing of up to EUR 4.5 million to the public transport company Auto promet d.o.o. Sisak (AP) founded by the City to finance the modernisation of the bus fleet (the Project). The transaction will be backed by a Public Service Contract (PSC) and supported with a Municipal Support Agreement (MSA) between the Bank and the City. The Bank’s financing will be used to modernise part of the Company’s bus fleet, introduction of a fleet management system and modernisation of the maintenance depot. The Company currently operates 34 buses. The average age of the AP bus fleet is 13 years, with a range from 6 to 25 years, compared to the optimal industry standard of 3-4 years. Such a fleet condition is unsustainable, especially with regards to the pollution, noise and lack of reliability created by the current fleet, with a negative impact on both the environment and living conditions in and around the City. In some instances, the existing fleet does not meet basic safety requirements. As an example, the existing Road Safety Law specifies conditions for the transportation of school children and currently only four of AP’s buses satisfy these requirements. In addition, the fuel consumption of the outdated fleet amounts to roughly 30.6 litres of diesel fuel per 100 km (about twice the normal consumption rate), significantly burdening the operating performance of the Company. The Company also operates a small bus terminal in the centre of Sisak, of which it owns 55 per cent. The remaining ownership of the terminal resides with the other main private bus company Caszmatrans which handles some suburban routes and school transport services. The terminal is slightly loss-making, and under-exploited from the standpoint of auxiliary incomes (e.g. shops, other retail). The planned purchase of 17 new low-floor buses compliant with the EU Directive 2009/33/CE will improve the reliability and quality of public transport services for users, as well as improve air quality through reduced carbon emissions and better fuel efficiency. The investment in 17 new buses will result in a significant reduction of carbon emissions from the urban bus sector. Urban Transport Market / Regulatory Snapshot Market: Urban transport services in the City of Sisak are solely provided by the Company, which also covers a certain proportion of suburban routes and the heavily travelled intercity service to Zagreb. Although many commuters use private cars and rail to travel to Zagreb, due to the parking regulation in Zagreb and unreliable railway services the number of bus passengers is on the increase. The Zagreb - Sisak route is open to competition, mainly from individual bus owners and one private company. Finally, the company transports schoolchildren, a competitively tendered service it shares with one other main private competitor. AP regularly participates in such tenders. Sisak has adopted a social policy for collecting public fares. Passengers categorised as students and pensioners are granted subsidised ticket prices on only urban and suburban lines, whilst the intercity passengers are not entitled to receive discounted travel. Regulatory aspect of public transport: According to the Regulation (EC) 1370/2007 of the European Parliament, public service compensation (subsidies) may be necessary to ensure the provision of services of general economic interest and guarantee safe, efficient, attractive and high quality passenger transport. The competent authority (the City) is obliged to conclude a public service contract with the operator to which it grants an exclusive right and/or compensation in exchange for discharging public service obligations (PSO) under a PSC. As a new EU country, Croatian municipalities are in the process of developing PSCs. The City has requested assistance from the Bank to prepare an EU-compliant PSC. This will be undertaken separately from the current assignment under a PSC Preparation Framework (TCS 39409) Regulatory emissions from heavy duty vehicles: Based on the Regulation (EC) No 595/2009 of the European Parliament, National authorities shall no longer grant Community or national type-approval for vehicles that do not comply with this Regulation as of 31 December 2012. They have also prohibited the registration of new vehicles that do not comply with this Regulation as of 31 December 2013. This Regulation also defines the approval of motor vehicle types, engines and replacement parts with respect to their emissions which must comply with Euro VI standards which determines the GHG emission limits. The proceeds of the EBRD loan will be used as follows: Tranche A - (i) the purchase of up to 10 new diesel Euro VI standard compliant buses for the Borrower, to be used for the urban and suburban routes in the area of the City of Sisak; (ii) introduction of a fleet management system; and (iii) modernisation of the maintenance depot of the Borrower at the location of its headquarters in Sisak Tranche B - the purchase of up to 7 additional new diesel Euro VI standard compliant buses for the Borrower, to be used for the urban and suburban routes in the area of the City of Sisak. Assignment Description: To support implementation of the Project, the Client intends to retain a consultant (the Consultant) to support the work of the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) to ensure it has access to best practice in the implementation of projects and procurement, as well as advice on specific technical issues (the Assignment or Services). The Consultant will provide assistance in procurement of the contracts in compliance with the Bank’s Procurement Policies and Rules (PP&R) provisions, and pursuant to all other agreements stipulated in the Loan Agreement signed between the Company and the Bank. The Consultant shall ensure that the PIU seeks and obtains the Bank’s No Objection for each contract and/or as deemed necessary during the implementation, pursuant PP&R provisions. The Consultant will also assist in the preparation of a Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme (FOPIP) with the overall objective to improve the Company’s operational efficiency, environmental, social and financial management in order to strengthen the capacity to service debt while providing high quality urban bus services. The overall objective of the Assignment is to facilitate the timely and effective implementation of the Project by: Advising to the Company and the PIU in the implementation of the Project’s component for the procurement of buses and associated services, contract administration; Assisting the PIU in the finalization of the technical specifications, based on Due Diligence needs assessment, provide draft tender documents including draft contract all provisions related to the ancillary services associated, such as after sales service, spare parts, etc.; Assisting the PIU in conducting the procurement process, in a timely and efficient manner, including the tenders evaluation, the report drafting and contract preparation; Providing timely recommendations and reporting to the PIU in the contract administration process; Assist with the administration of the contract delivery and acceptance phase of the buses and related ancillary services contract and advising the PIU with respect to all aspects which, in the Consultant’s professional judgment, aiming at Project’s successful implementation and prevent any action that might constitute violation of the contract conditions; and If requested, the Consultant will assist the PIU to provide the Bank with data, advice and information in relation to the contracts which shall be impartial and take due regard of the best industry practices.

C2CF EU Cohesion Funds Water Co-Financing Framework: Support in the Regionalisation Process and Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme

 | Published February 16, 2016  -  Deadline March 8, 2016
cpvs

Project Description:

The Government of Croatia has developed a policy based on regionalisation as the primary means to achieve compliance with EU water and wastewater directives. Through regionalisation, the Government plans to improve the quality and efficiency of its water and wastewater infrastructure and services in order to fulfill the country’s environmental targets, reaching out to areas outside major cities. Through the creation of larger regional operators, Croatia plans to ensure the long term sustainability of these investments and create a greater EU grant absorption capacity.

Currently there are approximately 125 local water companies in Croatia. It is envisaged that through the regionalisation programme, undertaken during the next 2-3 years, approximately 20-25 Regional Operating Companies (“ROCs”) will be formed through the consolidation of smaller operators into larger ROCs. Typically the regionalisation will occur along county lines and will be lead by the largest water operator (the “Lead Company”) in the region, which will then absorb the smaller companies into its operations.

The current assignment is designed to build on previous EBRD work in the water sector in Croatia (. The focus of the assignment is to assess the potential of regional consolidation in the water supply/wastewater services sector through the preparation of a feasibility study for specific regionalisation programmes where the Bank is co-financing, together with EU funds, the priority water and waste water infrastructure upgrade. In particular, the assignment will include concrete merger plans, covering all legal, financial and operational aspects.

The assignment will at first focus on two regionalisation programmes with different beneficiaries. It is envisaged that following the preparation and implementation of the initial programmes, the assignment may be extended if and when additional programmes are identified and agreed with the Croatian National Authorities.

The risks are high as many of the smaller water operators are currently not managed on a commercial basis and are loss making operations. They are characterised by high levels of non revenue water due to leakages in the network, weak collection systems and insufficient maintenance. If the regionalisation is to work, it is essential that these smaller operations be effectively integrated into the ROCs with their service levels raised.

As a result, EBRD proposes to assist simultaneously two Lead Companies of the future ROCswith the support towards the re-organisation of their financial and operational activities through a Financial and Operational Performance Improvement Programme (“FOPIP”) to ensure they are more efficient. The FOPIP will in particular include business planning, Public service Contract (“PSC”) preparation, advisory on tariff reforms and collection.

The overall objective of this assignment is to (i) evaluate the feasibility of and define concrete implementation models for the regional consolidation of water and wastewater companies in Croatia and (ii) assist the Companies in their transition through performance support to ensure the highest level of operating efficiency.

It is envisaged that the selected consultant (the “Consultant”) will work on two different regionalisation programmes. These programmes will be assigned to the Consultant at the time when the specific sub-projects are signed under the Framework. The Consultant will be assigned and work with the Bank, as well as with its borrowers.

Specific objectives within each of the sub-project assignments aim at:

(a) Specifying the existing business relationship of the assigned Lead Companies with the neighbouring companies in the sector;

(b) Evaluating the current financial and operating performance of the Lead Companies and its neighbouring companies (merger/acquisition targets);

(c) Evaluating the regional consolidation potential and advantages within the water/wastewater services sector and feasibility of the consolidation;

(d) Developing concrete merger/acquisition implementation models of the existing water/wastewater services companies in the County proposing new transparent;

(e) Operational, financial and management capacity building at the proposed ROC level;

(f) Evaluating efficiency improvements, including business planning, investment programming, accounting and cost management, financial long term planning etc.;

(g) Assisting the Lead Companies in the preparation of the Public Service Contract/s within its new regionalised service area; and

(h) Advising on tariff reforms and collection improvements.

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 August 2016 and has an estimated overall duration of 2 years.

Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 500,000 (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, to cover up to ten reorganisation programmes.

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 financed by EBRD Shareholder Special Fund (“SSF”). Please note selection and contracting will be subject to the availability of funding.

Eligibility: There are no eligibility restrictions.

Consultant Profile: Corporate services are required. The Consultant will be a firm or a group of firms with international experience in water and wastewater sector projects procured under financing arrangements with government agencies or international financial institutions, as well as respectable track record in mergers/acquisitions.

Development of a Legal and Regulatory Framework for Covered Bonds in Croatia - Local Legal Consultant

 | Published April 27, 2015  -  Deadline May 8, 2015
cpvs

Assignment Description: The covered bond is at the heart of the financial tradition of Continental Europe, playing a central role in funding strategies for the last two centuries. However, following the 2008 financial crisis and the discredit such crisis shed over mortgage/asset backed securities, the strategic importance of covered bonds as a long-term funding tool has been recognised at the global level. Covered bonds are playing an important role in the capital markets, contributing to the efficient allocation of capital and, ultimately, economic development and recovery. As a consequence, many European countries have introduced new covered bond legislation or have updated or are in the process of updating the existing rules. Croatian regulators, namely the Ministry of Finance, Croatian National Bank and the Croatian Financial Services Supervisory Agency are eager to work on the diversification of access to finance of the local banking institutions and revival of the local capital markets and on these lines will undertake a legal reform project aimed at introducing covered bonds legislation in Croatia. The purpose of introducing the new law is to encourage the diversification of funding of local banks and to support further development of capital markets by enabling issuance of covered bonds through creating a stable, certain and predictable specific legal framework. The Bank now intends to engage the services of a Croatian law firm (the "Local Legal Consultant" or "Consultant") to work in conjunction with an international covered bonds expert (the "International Consultant") to support the work of the MoF in developing a covered bonds legal and regulatory framework (the "Assignment"). The main objective of the Assignment is to reform the covered bond sector policy in Croatia by introducing a law which will allow issuing covered bonds in accordance with the best international practices. The selected Local Legal Consultant is expected to provide the following services: - Prepare, draft, revise and present together with the International Consultant a legal concept paper containing proposed solutions, underlying reasons and examples that will serve as the basis for the development of the Croatian covered bond legal and regulatory framework (the Concept Paper). - Contribute to the Ministry of Finance’s work by presenting the Concept Paper, discussing solutions, answering all questions that may be raised and providing additional comparative information which may be required; - Make himself/herself available for meetings in Zagreb or in the region when requested and actively participate and propose improvements / modifications of the draft legal texts necessary to accomplish desirable effects as proposed in the Concept Paper; - Draft the Covered Bond Law in accordance with the ideas developed in the Concept Paper and the potential instructions / suggestions of the Ministry of Finance, Croatian National Bank and the working group; - Draft in co-operation with the proposed regulatory body the relevant secondary legislation / regulation to implement and complement the new legal provisions; - Participate in capacity building and training events that might be organised in Croatia. 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 the beginning of May 2015 and has an estimated overall duration of 24 months. Cost Estimate for the Assignment: EUR 153,000.00 (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 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.
