Notice Abstract

Sustainable Infrastructure Group - Project Preparation Programme - Transport Infrastructure Window Background: EBRD’s Sustainable Infrastructure Group (“SIG”) delivers around 90 projects per year, investing approximately EUR 3.5 billion annually across a diverse range of subsectors, including electricity generation, transmission, distribution, storage and supply, rail, roads, urban transport, ports, logistics, airports, water and wastewater, district heating and cooling, facilities management, and solid waste management. In order to prepare these projects the Bank often engages consultants to evaluate the technical, financial, environmental and social feasibility of a proposed investment, in line with the Bank’s policies and requirements. Approximately 50-75 consultancy contracts are issued to provide such services each year. In order to support the quick mobilisation and cost effective delivery of these services the Bank intends to sign framework contracts under three new project preparation windows, an Energy Infrastructure Window (“EIW”), a Municipal Infrastructure Window (“MIW”) and a Transport Infrastructure Window (”TIW”). Going forward, it is anticipated that the majority of the Bank’s project preparation assignments will be procured under these framework contracts. The number and size of assignments under each window will depend on the Bank’s project pipeline at the time, but it is expected that assignments worth approximately EUR 5 million will be contracted under each window annually. The focus of this Procurement Notice will be the TIW while separate Procurement Notices for the EIW and MIW will be published on the Bank’s website. Consultants may apply for more than one window, but must submit separate, tailored, applications for each. Assignment Description: The EBRD is now seeking to select at least four (4) and up to the maximum of six (6) experienced consultants (the Consultants) to be contracted under Framework Agreements to provide services over the operational period. Covering all the Bank’s countries of operation, the selected Consultants will be expected to provide support for project preparation with a focus on the following sectors: • Road and motorway infrastructure including bridges and tunnels; • Urban transport including bus, tram, trolleybus and metro; • Urban roads and regeneration including parking, traffic management and smart city infrastructure ; • National, regional and local railroad infrastructure including tracks, stations, signalling and rolling stock; •Maritime infrastructure including ports, shipyards, inland waterways and fleets; • Airports and air navigation; •Logistics and intermodal platforms; From time to time the Consultants may also be required to carry out assignments related to other transport infrastructure sectors. More specifically, the Consultants will typically be required to undertake the following types of assignments within the sectors specified above: • Early project definition, screening, scoping and strategic planning (including sector strategy, investment prioritisation, and project and program-level pre-feasibility analysis); • Strategic environmental and social assessment, initial environmental and social examination covering project E&S categorisation and scoping, climate change adaptation risk identification, biodiversity assessment and screening; • Project preparation and investment feasibility assessment (including feasibility studies, due diligence, technical assessment and development of long term investment plan and priority investment programme, economic analysis, investment appraisal and risk analysis, financial analysis and modelling); • Environmental and social assessment, gender impact assessment and economic inclusion analysis,; Green Economy Transition (“GET”) assessment and climate resilience assessment; •Procurement support and implementation strategy ; The assignments will vary in duration and size, from short project scoping and screening s

Total quantity or scope of tender

Location: Regional

Assignment Start Date and Duration: The framework is expected to start operations in Q4 2019 and the initial operational period is 3 years. The duration may be extended, subject to needs, performance and availability of funding.

Cost Estimate: The total amount for the three year’s of operation of the framework will depend on the Bank’s transaction volume and the availability of donor funds. It is estimated that assignments for approximately EUR 5 million per annum could be procured under each window but the number and size of assignments will depend on the Bank’s project pipeline.

The consultant must determine whether any VAT would be chargeable on the services and the basis for that determination, without taking into consideration the Bank's special status as an IFI and state this in their response to the Invitation for Expressions of Interest. To the extent that a consultant incurs input VAT on goods and services purchased in connection with the provision of services (e.g. VAT on airline tickets) which is not otherwise recoverable by the consultant from the local tax authority, the gross cost to the consultant of such expenses shall be treated as a reimbursable expense.
