Subject: Request for Applications (RFA) Number 002 / “Sustainable development of Master Meter (MM) systems in Surabaya City”

Reference: Issued Under IUWASH PLUS (Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua) USAID Contract No. AID-497-TO-16-00003

The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene, Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) program is a five-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:
I. An increase of one million 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
II. An increase of 500,000 people in urban areas with access to safely managed sanitation and all of whom are from the “B40”, vulnerable groups or Indonesia’s eastern provinces.
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.

This RFA serves to support the Sustainable development of Master Meter (MM) systems in Surabaya City aiming to provide 800 poor families in informal settlements with access to safe piped water supply for achieving the GOI’s Universal Access targets. This development of master meter will be conducted under professional supervision of Community Based Organizations (CBOs) responsible for the operation and maintenance of existing and new master meter.

Specific objectives are summarized as follows:
1. Establish 16 master meter systems, including the construction and identification of approximately 70% of funding requirements for such systems (from APBD, KOTAKU, CSR, other donors, communities, etc.) with the remaining 30% covered by funding under the USAID IUWASH PLUS grant.
2. Expand an existing informal group of 15 KSM to a formal umbrella organization of all 50+ CBO in Surabaya and organize formal support from and collaboration with PDAM Surabaya.
3. Support PDAM Surabaya to establish a formal unit / division within PDAM dedicated to provide technical and operational support to all master meter systems in Surabaya.
Please refer to the Scope of Work (SoW) attached, for a complete statement of goals and expected results.
