EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FOR ENGINEERING DESIGN & SUPERVISION OF EROSION CONTROL WORKS
ISSUE DATE: MARCH 1, 2018
This request for Expression of Interest follows the update of the general procurement notice for this project that appeared in UN Development Business issue of April 27, 2012 and in Nigerian newspaper of September 27, 2012.
As part of Government’s commitment to transformation of the Nigerian socio-economy landscape, a multi-sector project is being executed in Nigeria to mitigate the vulnerability to erosion and support the people as they relate to their land. The Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) is an 8-years multi-sectoral and multi-scale program that targets states with acute gully erosion. The project is involving many Federal and State Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs), Local Governments, Communities and Civil Societies who are responsible for Planning, economy, finance, works, agriculture, water resources, forests, transport, power, emergency response as well as those focused on climate and hydrological information or watershed/basin regulation. In order to achieve this, the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) has received a credit of US$500million from the International Development Association (IDA) for the implementation of Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project.
Anambra State who is participating in the implementation of the project intends to use part of the proceeds of the credit for Engineering Design and Supervision works for erosion control sites in various locations in the State.
Anambra State Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (AN-NEWMAP), the implementing agency in the State has the responsibility of providing a “Damage Control” to slow the expansion of targeted set of aggressive gullies across the State, thereby reducing the loss to property and infrastructure and helping cultivate community ownership, influencing the gully intervention to support integrated watershed management and move towards greater adoption of sustainable land and water management practices by local people in the sub-watershed where the gullies are located. Therefore, the purpose of this consultancy services is to select a qualified firm who will be required to carry out engineering design and supervision of works at the identified erosion sites across the State which are recognized as threat to the safety of lives and property.
PHASE I: DETAILED ENGINEERING DESIGNS
When a site is identified by the project, the consultant will be responsible for preparing the detailed engineering designs including consultation and planning for integrated watershed planning and management, involving topography surveying, geotechnical investigation, hydrological, hydraulics studies, geotechnical (including survey of construction materials) and structural engineering analysis, Bill of Engineering Measurement and Evaluation (BEME) for the identified erosion control intervention sites. The contract agreement to be signed in this phase shall be a “Lump Sum” contract.
PHASE II: SUPERVISION OF CONSTRUCTION WORKS
When a bidding process has been successfully concluded and a contract is signed, the consultant will supervise the construction work at the site(s) to the satisfaction of the client, and which arise from the detailed design activities. The consultant is to ensure that high quality construction with detailed supervision is achieved; all associated works are carried out in full compliance with the Evaluation Design, Working Drawings, Bill of Engineering Measurement and Evaluation (BEME), Technical Specification and other contract documents. The contract agreement to be signed for this phase shall be a “Timed-Based” contract.
The design and supervision consultant will be procured through the World Bank QCBS method under one selection process and both phases of the contract will run simultaneously and will be largely dependent on the satisfactory performance of the consultant. The consultant would be required to submit technical and financial proposals separately for Phase I and II. The evaluation process would be carried out based on the proposals submitted for Phase I and II together.
