Request for Proposal (RFP)-REQ-NSR-17-0124-Service Provider for Environmental Engineering of IPLT Tungkusan Assessment in Deli Serdang

DAI, implementer of the USAID funded Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene  Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua (IUWASH PLUS) Project, invites qualified bidders to submit proposals/bids for : Service Provider for Environmental Engineering of IPLT Tungkusan Assessment in Deli Serdang.


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:

  • 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
  • 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.

Activity Summary

IPLT Tungkusan, constructed in 2010, is located in Deli Serdang and not functioning at all. The Government has earmarked budget for the rehabilitation of this IPLT and IUWASH PLUS agreed to support this through the development of a participatory DED Design for this IPLT combined with a new one in Kota Tebing Tinggi (not far from Deli Serdang). This program is funded under the LSIC and the umbrella concept note, which summarizes all component of this program is included in this SoW as Annex 1.

A quick initial review by the IUWASH PLUS team showed that the system consists of an Imhoff tank for solid liquid separation, from which the settled sludge should flow to sludge drying beds (SDB) and the liquid should flow into a baffled pond.  However there is no flow to either the SDB or the baffled Ponds, for unclear reasons; Also the structural integrity of all systems is compromised, but it is not clear for how much. For a consulting firm to provide a participatory rehabilitation design (under A Fixed Price Purchase Order) they must have technical information on the existing infrastructure, how the system currently operates and if there are parts of the current infrastructure which can still be used in future designs, before they can make a technical proposal and cost estimate for the development of the DED.

For this reason, the first step outlined in the umbrella concept is a technical assessment by both an Environmental and a Civil Engineer, who in close collaboration examine the various civil components and hydraulics of the IPLT including conducting limited structural testing. Each Engineer will have their own specific tasks and deliverables for a combined technical report. This SoW outlines the tasks and deliverables for the Environmental Engineer.
