The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) program is a five-and-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.
As concerns urban water supply service delivery, IUWASH PLUS places emphasis on improving performance among local water utilities (or “PDAM”). 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 energy efficiency (EE).
On February 2019 it was signed the collaboration program between United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) to improve the technical and financial performance at seven water utilities (PDAMs) at WJDT and CJRO regions, with special focus on reduction of NRW, Increased Energy Efficiency and Capacity Building programs on various ker technical and non technical topics.
In response to the above and for many years, central government and donor agencies have provided multiple trainings to PDAM managers and technical staff. Most often, the reason is fairly straightforward: when PDAM staff freshly trained in these topics return to their PDAM, they simply do not have the specialized equipment they require to accurately measure levels and locations of specific NRW and EE problems. Training is clearly critical, but if the equipment necessary for PDAM staff to measure and pinpoint specific corrective measures is not available, little progress in NRW reduction or improved EE can or should be expected.
In response to both the need and evident inability of other agencies to take needed steps, USAID IUWASH PLUS proposes that, at least to address needs among the PDAMs it serves:
• The procurement of NRW and EE measuring equipment
To support the above activities, USAID IUWASH PLUS need 2 sets of each equipment as seen in the table below and all equipment must delivered to USAID IUWASH PLUS office, at Mayapada Tower 1, 10th floor, Jl Jenderal Sudirman, Kav 28, Jakarta 12920
Procurement of NRW and EE equipment
The procurement of NRW and EE equipment will consist of two (2) sets as shown at annex 1. Each set of equipment will include:
NRW equipment (package 1) & EE equipment (package 2)
Proposed mechanism of the activity will be implemented through fixed price subcontract.
