Request For Proposal Request For Proposals (RFP) : No. REQ-CJR-18-0183 : "Local Implementer (vendor/contractor) for Construction of 18 units Shared Septic Systems in Densely Populated Communities of Kota Magelang, Central Java"

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 in increasing access to water supply and sanitation services as well as improving key hygiene behaviors among urban poor and vulnerable populations. Implemented by DAI Global LLC, 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 of which at least 500,000 are from the poorest 40% of the population; and
· An increase of 500,000 people in urban areas with access to an improved sanitation facility and all of whom are from the poorest 40% of the population.
To ensure that improvements in access to WASH services are sustained, 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, IUWASH PLUS 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.

DAI, the implementer of the “The USAID Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene 'Penyehatan Lingkungan Untuk Semua' (IUWASH PLUS) program invites qualified offerors to submit proposals to supply and deliver “Construction of 18 units Shared Septic Systems in Densely Populated Communities of Kota Magelang, Central Java” in support of program implementation. 

Kota Magelang in Central Java has a population of around 125,000 people (or 25,000 households) and high levels of Open Defecation, shown in recent STBM data from Health Department (more than 27% of the total population without access to a safe sanitation system) especially in the many densely populated neighborhood across all 17 Kelurahan. Because of limited space and sloping ground, the only option is to utilize smaller areas of communal or social land or space under small alleys to construct sealed, shared sanitation systems (for 2 -10 families). The development and construction of these systems is not easy and require flexible designs and construction methods to accommodate the various locations and construction risks.. Finally, promoting these to low income communities will be challenging, as they might be reluctant to allow construction such a system so close to their houses

USAID IUWASH PLUS has discussed this with PEMDA Kota Magelang, which expressed great interest for IUWASH PLUS assistance in the development and testing of appropriate designs and methods of constructing of shared septic tanks in densely populated areas in Magelang. PEMDA promised to finance the replication of such systems from their local budget (APBD), as well as through other programs such as KOTAKU and, possibly, CSR from local companies. 
In order to response request from Government of Magelang City above, IUWASH PLUS required construction of 18 units Shared Septic System in Densely Populated Communities of Kota Magelang estimated on December 2018. 

This SOW is the 4th stage of all LSIC stages, where at the previous stages, IUWASH PLUS already selected 20 location to build shared septic system including site plan of specific location, also agreement were made with households to be connected. The Technical Service Provider of LSIC USAID IUWASH PLUS already made design and tested construction as prototype in 2 location, learned about construction method, timeline and real costing. The result of these lessons learned during construction of the 2 prototypes are used as basis for this SOW.  For those who match the qualifications, IUWASH PLUS inviting you to submit proposal, as the files attached or check the link as follows :  

Thank you very much for your kind attention & best cooperation.
