The project will have special focus on the methodology to include the low-income groups and poor communities in the urban and rural areas. For commercial and institutional areas, the consultants will develop discharge standards for commercial and institutional wastewater connecting into the sewer network. The consultant will also design standard pre-treatment facilities for small-scale industries to meet the proposed discharge standards. For onsite sanitation, the consultants will study and develop environmentally friendly and economical method to treat wastewater from gully emptying tanks, and thereafter develop the bidding documents to evaluate, negotiate and contract for a pilot project. In addition, institutional and capacity building components will be formulated for the purpose of improving asset management, operation and maintenance of the sewerage system, and achieving cost-recovery. The experts to be provided by the firm will include wastewater engineers, structural engineer, hydraulic engineer, mechanical and electrical engineer, quantity surveyor, procurement specialist, environmental specialist, project economist, social/gender development specialist, institutional development specialist, public utility finance specialist, financial analyst, resettlement specialist, information technology and network specialist, and public awareness consultant.|
