A. Background

The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) program is a five-a-half-year initiative designed to assist the Government of Indonesia (GOI) in increasing access to water supply and sanitation services as well as improving key hygiene behaviors among urban poor and vulnerable populations. USAID IUWASH PLUS works with governmental agencies, the private sector, NGOs, communities and others to achieve the following “high level” results:

  1. An increase of 1,100,000 people in urban areas with access to improved water supply service quality, of which at least 500,000 are from the poorest 40% of the population (also referred to as the “Bottom 40%” or “B40”), vulnerable groups or Indonesia’s eastern provinces; and
  2. An increase of 500,000 people in urban areas with access to safely managed sanitation

To ensure that improvements in access to WASH services are sustained, USAID IUWASH PLUS is guided by a development hypothesis that focuses on strengthening service delivery systems, so they can more effectively reach the poorest and most vulnerable segments of the population. In order to achieve this at scale, the program undertakes activities through four interrelated components, including: 1) improving household WASH services; 2) strengthening city WASH institutional performance; 3) strengthening the WASH financing environment; and 4) advancing national WASH advocacy, coordination and communication. In support of these components, USAID IUWASH PLUS also implements a Local Sustainability and Innovation Component (LSIC) that is designed to stimulate WASH innovations that strengthen community, private sector and government WASH service provision.

The Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) acting through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) share the mutual goal of improving performance of water utilities to increase access to clean water in Indonesia, particularly to address two technical challenges that are especially impactful: (1) high rates of non-revenue water (NRW); and (2) poor energy efficiency (EE). To provide a comprehensive and measurable NRW reduction and EE improvement in Indonesia, SECO agreed to co-finance USAID for a three-year technical assistance program, implemented under the current USAID IUWASH PLUS program with seven PDAMs in two regions, i.e. West Java and Central Java provinces.


B. Program Summary

With regard to urban water supply service delivery, USAID IUWASH PLUS places emphasis on improving performance among local water utilities (or “PDAMs”).  While there are multiple areas where PDAM performance improvements can be registered, there are two technical challenges that are especially impactful and, in the case of Indonesia, particularly persistent. These include: 1) high rates of Non-Revenue Water (NRW); and low rates of energy efficiency (EE).

In February 2019, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) signed a partnership agreement to improve the technical and financial performance at seven (7) water utilities (PDAMs) at WJDT and CJRO regions, with special focus on reduction of NRW, Increased Energy Efficiency and Capacity Building programs on various key technical and non-technical topics. In addition, the Indonesian central government has the World Bank NUWSP – Performance Based Grant for NRW and Efficiency program attempting to address NRW and EE by providing grants from the government to the water companies.

Reduction of NRW requires accurate customer water meters, reduction or elimination of leaks and illegal tap-ins, and water pressure management in the zones of the water distribution area.


C. Objectives

The objectives of this program are as follows:

  1. To review existing customer water meter accuracy in order to improve the accuracy of water consumption data.
  2. To measure water pressure in the distribution network at key locations for improved water pressure management and NRW reduction.


D. Scope of Work

The activities of field measurement will be implemented within a two-week period and consist of the following requirements:

  • onduct survey and water meter measurement training for Enumerators.
  • Check the accuracy of customer water meters for 400 sample customers in PDAM Kabupaten Karawang.
  • Conduct water pressure measurements near customer connections for 30 sample customers in PDAM Kabupaten Karawang.
  • Prepare a field measurements result report.
  • Conduct survey analysis and results presentation to PDAM Kabupaten Karawang.


E. Schedule

The activities are expected to begin in early August 2020 and continue through the end of the month.


F. Expected Result

  • A customer water meter accuracy report in PDAM Kabupaten
  • Water pressures in the distribution system report.


G. Equipment Requirements:

The following equipment shall be provided by the selected service provider for the implementation of the program:

  • Test bench
  • Manometer
  • Measuring Glass


H. Selection of Service Provider and Evaluation Criteria

The selected service provider will be on Full & Open Competition. The selected provider have to submit proposal which consist of Technical Proposal (background of the program, experience, tasks to be conducted, methodology, schedule, qualification of personnel) and cost proposal.

The technical proposal will be evaluated based on:
