Description Tranche 2 will finance water supply infrastructure in Guwahati, and drainage infrastructure in Guwahati and Dibrugarh cities of Assam. The tranche will support infrastructure investments to (i) augment water supply system in Guwahati to benefit additional 350,000 residents; and (ii) improve drainage system in Guwahati and Dibrugarh to reduce water logging and flooding. The project will also support (i) capacity development of staff from urban local bodies and implementing agencies; and (ii) community awareness campaigns.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Currently, only 30% of the population in Guwahati has access to piped water supply, while groundwater sources have high fluoride and arsenic content. In addition, Guwahati and Dibrugarh are suffering from prolonged local flooding during monsoon over 5-6 months annually. Because of the lack of comprehensive sewerage system and inadequate solid waste management, the rainwater drainage system in most areas of these two cities gets choked. The proposed Tranche 2 will address these issues by improving water supply in South-East zone of Guwahati using surface water as a source, and provision of drainage infrastructure in Guwahati and Dibrugarh.
Impact Access to sustainable water supply, sanitation, and urban infrastructure facilities for the urban population in Guwahati and Dibrugarh cities of Assam improved.

Consulting Services

All consultants and nongovernment organization (NGO) will be recruited according to ADB's Guidelines on the Use of Consultants (2013, as amended from time to time). The terms of reference for all consulting services are detailed in Appendix 1 of the PAM.

Estimated 956 person-months (national) of consulting services are required to (i) facilitate project management and implementation, and (ii) strengthen the institutional and operational capacity of the executing agency. Consulting firms will be engaged using the quality- and cost-based selection (QCBS) method with a standard quality cost ratio of 90:10. NGO will be engaged using the quality-based selection method.

Procurement

All procurement of goods and works will be undertaken in accordance with ADB's Procurement Guidelines (2015, as amended from time to time).

An 18-month procurement plan for Tranche 2 indicating threshold and review procedures, goods, works, and consulting service contract packages and national competitive bidding guidelines is in Part IV, Section C of the PAM. The procurement plan will be updated by the PMU for approval by ADB at least once a year (more frequently if necessary) and will cover the next 18 months of procurement activity. A delay in loan effectiveness, other start-up delays, and delays during implementation will require an unscheduled procurement plan update. ADB will review each updated procurement plan prior to its publication. When appropriate, this activity may be undertaken in the field by ADB missions working with the executing and implementing agencies.

International competitive bidding procedures will be used for civil works contracts estimated to cost $40 million or more, and goods contracts valued at $3 million or higher. National competitive bidding (NCB) procedures will be done for civil works contracts estimated to cost less than $40 million. Shopping will be used for contracts for procurement of works and equipment costing $100,000 and below.
