The purpose of the consultancy is to assist the LID Project Team with the identification of a service provider that will be responsible for water supply infrastructure projects design. Specifically, the consultancy will result in detailed terms of reference for tender documents that will solicit qualified proposals for the design and development of detailed project documents for the water supply in the Village of Vrbovac (Municipality of Odzak) and artesian water well in the Municipality of Domaljevac. For this purpose, one (1) local consultant (hereinafter the Consultant) will be engaged.
The main objective of the consultancy is to provide inputs to the Project Team in the process of analysing the needs, constraints and resources relevant to the future design of relevant documentation and technical specifications related to water supply of the partner local governments. The consultancy is also expected to contribute to the strengthening of project design and management capacities of the municipal administration in Odzak and Domaljevac.
The consultancy is planned within the Local Integrated Development (LID) Project (2016 – 2018). The project is primarily funded by the European Union and co-funded and implemented by UNDP BiH. As part of the UNDP BiH’s Rural and Regional Development Sector’s portfolio, the LID Project has an overall objective to raise the standards of living, and improve social cohesion in Bosnia and Herzegovina through inclusive sustainable socio-economic development. LID interventions are streamlined along two main pillars: governance, and economic development and job creation. LID will work with 21 selected local governments, grouped together in 4 geographic clusters in the areas primarily affected by floods and areas with a large percentage of returnees/internally displaced persons. The main beneficiaries of the project are 21 local governments, 30 MSMEs and 300 rural households, 50 civil society organizations and grass-root citizens’ groups in target communities, 5,000 members of socially excluded and vulnerable groups, and 3 relevant higher government level institutions. The main partners are the BiH Ministry for Human Rights and Refugees and the two entity governments. This activity will take place within the Project’s Good Governance component.
The consultancy will provide expert inputs throughout a key preparatory phase in the process of developing and implementing water supply infrastructure projects within the context of local development strategies implementation. The consultant will provide technical support in the design and preparation of terms of reference for the selection of service provider to deliver a detailed project document for the infrastructure intervention.
This will require structured engagement with the partner local governments, field trips to each location and a series of consultations with all relevant actors throughout the assignment.
Specifically, the Consultant will be expected to perform the following tasks:
Task 1: Conduct desk research and develop workplan
As part of this Task, the consultant is expected to implement the necessary preparatory activities and agree on a workplan with the project team.
This entails a detailed desk survey exercise that will take in all the necessary documents pertaining to the projects, to include material made available by the partner local governments. The consultant will also, based on information available and consultations with the team, agree on a workplan for the assignment that will be subject to approval from the project leader.
Task 2: Draft terms of reference
Once the workplan has been approved, the consultant is expected to start the design process. The terms of reference will be expected to include the following elements:
