Executing Agency (Client): Pavlodar Tram Management Company The Client Contact Person: Krisa Alexander, President JSC “Tramvainoe Upravlenie Goroda Pavlodara” 140000, Industrial zone Severnaya, 258 City of Pavlodar, the Republic of Kazakhstan The EBRD Contact Person: Sophie Medert, Advisor, Technical Cooperation Team European Bank for Reconstruction and Development One Exchange Square London EC2A 2JN Tel: + 44 20 7338 7371 E-mail: mederts@ebrd.com Project Description: The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the EBRD” or the “Bank”) has extended a senior loan of up to KZT 2.5 billion (EUR 10 million equivalent) to the Pavlodar Tram Management Company (the “Client”), who is fully owned by the Pavlodar Oblast Akimat (the “Oblast Akimat”). The proceeds of the Loan will be used for i) procurement of up to 25 new units of modern energy efficient trams; (ii) rehabilitation of the tram infrastructure including catenary and junctions; and (iii) balance sheet restructuring (the “Project”). The loan will be split into 2 tranches. The Project also includes co-financing of up to USD 13.5 million from the Oblast Akimat and/or the Government of Kazakhstan (the “GOK”) under the Enhanced Partnership Framework Arrangements (the “EPFA”). According to the Law on Transport, the Ministry of Transport and Communication (the “Ministry”) is the state body that carries out governance in the area of transport. The Ministry is in charge of drafting and implementing normative legal acts, national standards and technical rules regulating transport, defining the concessionary fares, the social groups who benefit from them and the implementation conditions and safety and security of transport. However, compensation for transportation of concessionary passengers on urban services is the liability of individual cities. The Department of the Municipal Utilities, Public Transport and Automobile Roads of the City (the "Department") has the responsibility of strategic planning, investment, provision and regulation in the public transport sector in the City. In the case of Pavlodar, the Department is the policy maker in the public transport sector. Regular public transport service is provided with two modes in Pavlodar: road-based buses and minibuses, and rail-based trams. There is one tram operator: the Company, and 9 bus operators, including one public bus company owned by the Oblast Akimat rendering services on social regional routes. Assignment Descriptions: The legal framework of the Republic of Kazakhstan (“RK”) for transport, provided in the Law on Transport as of 21.09.1994, No.156, envisages an option to provide subsidies by the Government of the RK to transport operators in order to compensate for the provision of services that are not profitable under existing regulated tariffs on socially important routes. According to the approved methodology a city has to approve a list of socially important routes. Then an operator rendering services on such route can apply for compensational subsidy by providing his actual cost of service (profit is not eligible) and actual fare revenue collected during previous calendar year. Based on the information provided, the city makes an allocation in the next year budget. After compensational subsidy is budgeted, the operator has to send monthly or quarterly reports on actual cost and fare revenue collected on the particular route. The difference will then have to be compensated. In practice this loss-compensation mechanism does not work due to number of reasons. The Client now intends to retain a consulting company (the "Consultant”) to revise the public transport strategy for Pavlodar (the “Assignment”).

Semey and Oskemen Bus Projects - Technical, Financial, Environmental & Social Due Diligence

 | Published January 27, 2017  -  Deadline February 13, 2017
cpvs

Project Description:

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the “EBRD” or the “Bank”) was approached by the Eastern Kazakhstan Oblast (the “Oblast”) to assist the City of Semey and the City of Oskemen (the “Cities”) in improving the quality of the public transport services in these cities by improving regulatory framework and addressing existing market failures and development needs.

The Bank is considering to provide senior loans to “Centr Upravlenia Passagirskimi Perevozkami Goroda Semey” LLP and to “Centr Upravlenia Passagirskimi Perevozkami Goroda Ust-Kamenogorsk” LLP (the “Companies”), state owned public transport enterprises in the Cities wholly owned by relevant City Akimats. The proceeds of the loans will be used to co-finance, jointly with the Oblast and the Cities separately in each City: (i) procurement of new modern buses for the relevant Company to be leased to the private public transport operators on the terms acceptable to the Bank in order to improve the public transport services in the Cities; (ii) modernisation of the relevant Company’s dispatch and control centres, procurement of associated route planning software, GPS monitoring system and urban transport model; (iii) procurement and installation of formal or e-ticketing system in a relevant City (the “Projects”).

The Bank is contributing to the development of the public transport in the Cities via: (i) promoting fair and transparent competition between the public transport operators; and (ii) the introduction of a long-term gross cost Public Service Contract (“PSC”) between the public transport operators and Cities.

An open tender for servicing the selected bus routes under the PSC along with the operating lease of the buses, in a form satisfactory to the Bank, will be conducted by each City. Among other benefits, the PSCs should allow the Cities to gain full control over the quality of bus services, including proper maintenance of the bus fleet and will facilitate transparent collection and distribution of fare revenues via a formal (potentially electronic) ticketing system. This will allow the Cities to gradually optimise the public transport network via fair distribution of revenues among the operators in order to cover the costs of the non-profitable routes.

Assignment Description

The objective of this assignment (the “Assignment”) is to assist the Bank with the preparation of the Projects by conducting a comprehensive due diligence. The Bank now intends to retain a consultancy firm (the “Consultant”) or group of firms to assess whether the proposed investment has a strong justification in terms of preferred technology, scope, sufficient public transportation demand and improvement of service levels, environmental and social soundness. The tasks of the Assignment also include an assessment of the necessity of constructing Companies-owned depots for the new buses, or the possibility of structuring the projects with existing depots of the winning private operators.

As part of the Assignment the Consultant is required to identify and assess the potentially significant existing and future adverse environmental and social impacts associated with each Company’s current operations and the proposed Projects, assess compliance with applicable laws and the EBRD Environmental and Social Policy (“ESP”) and Performance Requirements (“PRs”), determine the measures needed to prevent or minimise and mitigate the adverse impacts, and identify potential environmental and social opportunities, including those that would improve the environmental and social sustainability of the Projects and/or the associated current operations.

The expected outcome of the Assignment is a preparation of the comprehensive due diligence to be used by the Bank to appraise the Projects and take a decision on the prospective financing.

The selected Consultant is expected to implement the following tasks:

  • Task 1: Technical review of the proposed bus operations to establish the route structure, demand, revenue and operational cost projections;
  • Task 2: Advice on the Depot;
  • Task 3: Advice on a new to-be-constructed Depot Design;
  • Task 4: Review and advice on technical and functional specifications of the new buses;
  • Task 5: Development and introduction of electronic ticketing system;
  • Task 6: Financial review of the proposed investments, including confirmation of cost estimates and operational assumptions;
  • Task 7: Projects Environmental and Social Due Diligence.

During Projects’ due diligence there will be also a separate consultant hired to do a legal due diligence and confirm the envisaged Project structure is based on a balanced contractual framework. Such consultant is expected to update the existing working samples of PSC for the Projects and conduct the legal due diligence on the envisaged structure with a focus on tendering of bus routes together with lease arrangements for buses under the PSC. The Consultant under this assignment and such legal consultant are expected to closely cooperate during the due diligence to achieve synergies in their outputs.
