Description
The Project intends to (i) reduce urban poverty, improve community health, and related environmental degradation in 21 Project towns by improving water supply, sanitation, solid waste management, and roads for low-income communities; and (ii) ensure sustainability of urban investments by strengthening institutional capacities of newly devolved local government municipal agencies.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy

The Government is implementing comprehensive governance reforms, with particular emphasis on enhancing the effectiveness of basic social services through its program for devolution of powers. The Project is formulated to support the Government s poverty reduction initiatives, as well as the devolution of power and responsibility to local governments for the provision and financing of urban infrastructure and municipal services. The Project incorporates several strategic features and incentives, including (i) promoting policy reform in accordance with the Punjab Local Government Ordinance 2001 (PLGO2001), and financial management and resource generation at the local government level, with adoption of cost-recovery principles and phased elimination of subsidies; (ii) prioritizing investments that meet the basic needs of urban communities; (iii) ensuring local community participation and ownership; and (iv) promoting equity participation by local governments in the investment packages.

Consulting Services
A total input of 1,830 person-months is planned, consisting of 32 person-months of international consulting and 1,798 person-months of domestic consulting. The selection and engagement of all consulting services to be financed under the Project will be in accordance with the Quality and Cost Based Selection (QCBS) method of the ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants by Asian Development Bank and its Borrowers and/or other arrangements satisfactory to ADB for the engagement of domestic consultants.
Procurement
All ADB-financed procurement for the Project will follow ADB's Guidelines for Procurement. Contracts for civil works estimated to cost more than $1.0 million equivalent will be carried out using international competitive bidding (ICB) procedures while those estimated to cost $1.0 million equivalent or less will be carried out under local competitive bidding (LCB) procedures. Minor development works and maintenance may be carried out on a force account basis. The procurement of goods will preferably be grouped into packages larger than $500,000 to be suitable for ICB procedures. Miscellaneous minor goods that cannot be grouped into larger contracts and are estimated to cost less than $500,000 per contract will be procured through international shopping (IS) procedures. Minor items estimated to cost less than the equivalent of $100,000 per contract may be purchased directly following proper procedures to ensure economy, efficiency and quality.
