Project Description:

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“EBRD” or the “Bank”) is currently working with S.C. RAJA S.A. Constanta (the “Company” or “RAJA”) in the City of Constanta in Romania on financing options for an investment programme and services to reduce leakages and reduce the non-revenue water in the water distribution network in the City (the “Project”).

One of the financing options being discussed is that the investment programme is financed by a contractor (the Private Partner) partially/totally from a loan engaged from the Bank.  The Company would engage a Private Partner to design, engineer, implement and co-operate certain District Metered Areas (DMAs) in a specific area of operation of the Company, to achieve a selection of pre-defined performance indicators. The length of the contract is estimated to be up to 5 years, to be established in correlation with the agreed financing structure. The payment mechanism will be linked to meeting certain performance indicators by the Private Partner. It is estimated that a proportion of the contract price will be a fixed fee paid to the Private Partner based on deliverables and to cover some of costs and materials, while the rest of the fee will be remitted to the Private Partner as a periodic incentive based fee for leakage reduction and maintenance and operation of DMAs. It is expected that a meaningful share of the remuneration will be linked to performance, with the exact proportion to be determined following the market sounding exercise.

On this basis, a Performance Based Service Agreement (the PBSA) would need to be introduced between the Company and the Private Partner which will be the key to monitoring and evaluation of the services to be provided by the Private Partner.

The Company therefore wishes to engage a consultant (the Consultant) to provide assistance with the design of a PBSA and support the procurement of the Project (the “ Assignment”).

A separate assignment will cover the initial review of the legal, regulatory and institutional framework, the results of which will feed into the current Assignment.  The Consultant for that will be engaged for the initial review of the legal, regulatory and institutional framework  will not be eligible for this Assignment and vice versa.

A steering group (the Steering Group) will be established, in order to facilitate and oversee the drafting, negotiation and introduction of the PBSA and ensure that all terms and conditions of the PBSA are acceptable to all parties. The Steering Group will consist of representatives of the Company, the Consultant and the EBRD Operation Leader as an observer.

Assignment Description:

The Consultant will draft the PBSA and prepare and launch the tender, as per scope of work below. The key objectives of the assignment are as follows:

  • Develop the PBSA, and procurement documents in implementation thereof, based on the best international practices and standards in the area of water and wastewater services and with due regard to the requirements of PBSA and structured accordingly to take into account the excessive complexity of the existing legislation, current shareholding structure and ownership of assets.
  • Prepare tender documentation and assist the Company in successfully launching the tender of the Project.
  • Ensure, throughout the assignment, appropriate transfer of skills via regular updates, provision of formal presentations and trainings to the Company and, as appropriate, other stakeholders.

It is expected that the scope of work will cover the following tasks and phases:

PBSA (Draft) and Approval Phase

Based on the reviews and outcomes of the Initial review of the legal, regulatory and institutional framework (subject to a separate consultancy contract) the Consultant will develop a first draft of the PBSA (the “Initial Draft PBSA”) ensuring, to the extent possible, that the First Draft shall set forth the terms and conditions as required under applicable law for agreements of this kind and ensure the conformity of the PBSA to the best international practices and standards, including, inter alia, as follows:

  1. Clear definition of the scope of the PBSA and the Project, including identification of the DMAs and the services to be rendered by the Contractor;
  2. In cooperation with the Company, define the mandatory standards applicable to the services, including their technical characteristics (e.g. water pressure), environmental standards (e.g. quality of water) and service reliability (targets for scheduled and unscheduled service interruptions);
  3. Define a mechanism that defines the process for the Company and the Contractor agreeing on:
    1. The level of service (reduction in leakages) to be achieved once the technical status of the network is known;
    2. Baseline indicators for definition of performance;
    3. Performance targets for the services with an emphasis on verifiable technical improvement targets, taking into account the existing condition of the DMAs
  4. Draft rules governing the maintenance and operation of DMAs and replacement of the Facilities, including responsibilities of the parties related to access to the Facilities and financial liability;
  5. Draft rights, obligations and liabilities of the relevant parties (to be set out with the appropriate level of detail), termination clauses, rules governing amendments and dispute resolution mechanisms;
  6. Draft investment procedures and responsibilities including agreement on investment plan with appropriate timeframe and financing responsibilities of the relevant parties;
  7. Draft detailed reporting requirements to ensure that the Company and other stakeholders (e.g. consumers) are able to obtain adequate information on all aspects of performance during the life of the PBSA (i.e. key operating efficiency measures, etc.), with clear parameters on the structure and frequency of reporting;
  8. Draft “change mechanisms” that allow the PBSA to adapt to specified changed circumstances including changes in law/applicable standards and taking into account the appropriate risk allocation;
  9. Draft rules governing the application of the relevant environmental standards during the term of the PBSA to ensure that the services are provided in compliance with the national and, as appropriate, international environmental rules and procedures; a schedule of proposed environmental improvements;
  10. Draft appropriate incentives/disincentives throughout the entire term of the PBSA;
  11. Draft a procedure of approval and implementation of the Company production and investment programmes;
  12. Draft a monitoring and assessment procedure for the Contractor Performance;
  13. Draft a system of penalties for not complying with the service requirements and key performance indicators, including guarantee instruments to ensure the Company from the risk of non-payment of the Contractor.
  14. Update as necessary the potential interested contractors/bidders on the outcome of the proposed structure of the Project, type of contract and timeline to tender.

Tender documentation and PBSA (Final Draft) Phase

Based on actions completed, reviews and conclusions of PBSA (Draft) and Approval Phase:

  2. Draft tender documents necessary for, or incidental to, the implementation of the PBSA. The Consultant will work on the basis of the approved Procurement Strategy. It will develop the procurement documents base of the Company standards and drafts provided.
  3. The Consultant will propose qualifications and experience required of bidders;
  4. Define contractor insurance requirements and bonding requirements;
  5. Propose evaluation criteria of bidders;

Tender Launch Phase

  2. As necessary assist with gathering and proposing responses to bidders questions received by the Company during the tender process;
  3. Participate in the evaluation of the submissions; and
