Business Opportunities

Consulting Services 100% Domestic Investment Program Consultants will be recruited under ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants to assist the Government in implementing the Investment Program during the detailed engineering design (DED) and supervision phase for quality assurance and monitoring of both construction and operations. The recruitment will follow ADB's quality-and-cost-based (QCBS) selection method. Recruitment of private contractors under PBMC will be carried out under ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants with some adjustments.
Procurement Procurement of all goods and services under the Investment Program will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Guidelines for Procurement, and in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Government acceptable to ADB. The Government has requested: (i) advance action for recruitment of Investment Program Consultants, and procurement and installation of household water meters in selected Investment Program ULBs; and (ii) retroactive financing of Investment Program Consultants, public awareness campaigns and workshops, procurement and installation of household water meters in selected Investment Program ULBs, implementation of the Nirmala Nagar Program (NNP) to cover the remaining 6 Investment Program ULBs, and incremental administrative costs of KUIDFC and the Government of Karnataka (GoK) related to the Investment Program. For selected sub-projects, alternative procurement modalities, such as Performance-Based Deferred Payment Structure (PBDPS) and Performance-Based Management Contract (PBMC), will be adopted in order to increase the level of PSP in the sub-sectors. The PBDPS modality requires private contractors to partially bridge-finance the construction and subsequent O&M costs of the sub-projects in exchange for annuity-like payments over a 10-year period, which comprise base fees that will be determined through bidding and bonuses that will be determined according to predetermined performance indicators. In addition to introducing private investments into the sector, thereby facilitating greater leverage of public funds, PBDPS will ensure higher accountability of the contractors by combining construction and actual service delivery during the operation phase into one single contract package, which cannot be achieved easily under conventional procurement modalities.
