Reference: Issued Under IUWASH PLUS (Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene Penyehatan Lingkungan Hidup 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:
1. 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
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.
This RFA serves to support the Development and Testing of Technical Options for Upgrading Existing Septic Tanks in Kota Medan and Kab. Deli Serdang aiming to develop and test the technological options which can be used in the upgrading of unsealed tanks (cubluk), including the construction of prototypes of shared septic tanks for locations which do currently not have any underground systems
Specific objectives are summarized as follows:
• Develop sample designs for upgrading existing septic tanks (in specific locations), as well as for shared septic tanks, covering all necessary technical specifications and materials options (availability, quality, ease of construction, etc)
• Determine the cost (RAB) for upgrading existing septic tank and shared septic tank, covering all material and labor cost as well as additional cost (transport, storage, etc)
• Develop the work instructions for the construction of septic tank upgrading in accordance with upgrading options and new construction of shared septic tanks
• Conduct the upgrading of 4 existing septic tank units and 4 shared septic tanks,
• Develop and test tools and equipment that are easy to apply and inspection of existing septic tanks
Please refer to the Scope of Work (SoW) attached, for a complete statement of goals and expected results.
