Pahlawan No. 3A Banda Aceh, NAD INDONESIA Tel : +62 651 741 2525 Fax :+62 651 25258 Request for Proposal (RFP) – Readvertisement (Long Format) Date: 1 July 2006 Dear Sir/Madam, Subject “Providing Infrastructure Planning Expertise to a Participatory Development Planning Process in 13 Kecamatan in Aceh or Nias” 1. UN-Habitat is facilitating a participatory planning process in 13 kecamatan (subdistricts) in Aceh and Nias, as part of the ANSSP (Aceh Nias Settlement Support Programme) in collaboration with UNDP’s ERTR (Aceh Emergency Response and Transitional Recovery Programme). UN-Habitat is building 3500 new houses in these 13 kecamatan. 2. The participatory planning programme is named PeKAN (Program Pembangunan Kecamatan di Aceh dan Nias). This planning programme intends to make kecamatan more development-ready for reconstruction programmes after UN-Habitat will finish house reconstruction. The programme will set up or will support a kecamatan forum, which will be aided by facilitators, a social-economic planning team and an infrastructure planning team. A general programme brief of PeKAN is attached in Annex I. 3. You are requested to submit a proposal (financial and technical) for the provision of the infrastructure planning team to the PeKAN activities within any of the 13 kecamatan of the PeKAN programme. With infrastructure planning is meant the physical planning including the planning of infrastructure, but not design and detailed engineering of infrastructure. The Terms of reference are in Annex II. 4. PeKAN’s tentative programme schedule is as follows : • Announcement of Results July 31. • Confirmation and contracting before August 15. • 3 months of services shall be provided starting August 15, and shall be concluded by November 30. UN-Habitat is taking utmost care to uphold this programme schedule. By submitting your proposal, your organization will fully comply and will not solicit exceptions with regard to project timing. 1
  • 5. UN-Habitat may award 1 up to 4 kecamatan to one organization. In your proposal, you are allowed to indicate those kabupatens and/or kota in which you want / do not want to be engaged, as well as the minimum and maximum number of kecamatan for which you want to be appointed. UN-Habitat retains the right to engage your services within the margins which you have stipulated in your proposal (see also Annex IV). 6. All proposals shall comply with a budget of no more than Rp140,000,000 for one kecamatan in Banda Aceh or Rp 155,000,000 for one kecamatan in Nias. This budget includes all overheads and taxes. As an UN organization, UN-Habitat cannot withhold taxes. 7. Each proposal shall be formulated for an appointment in Aceh. In case your organization is awarded a kecamatan in Nias, UN-Habitat will automatically add a lump sum amount Rp 15,000,000 to your budget, in order to allow you to off-set higher operational costs and to encourage you to take up remote areas. 8. The key challenges for your organization to submit a successful technical proposal are : • To demonstrate prior experience in participatory and/or subdistrict spatial planning incorporating recommendations for social-economic development made by others. Note: Infrastructure planning does not entail design and detailed engineering; the specialist requirements are for technical and broad financial feasibility assessments. • To demonstrate prior experience in capacity to make good and strongly communicative map and plan documents for spatial planning and infrastructure planning. • To demonstrate planning capacities in post-conflict and/or post-disaster areas. • To demonstrate a good understanding of providing useful and clear outputs for kecamatan communities. • To field planning staff with sufficient expertise and good communication skills for 5 weeks in one kecamatan (wherein you are appointed) and to follow the work plan set forward by the participatory planning team of that kecamatan. (When your proposal indicates that you are willing to take up more than one kecamatan, then planning teams for each of the kecamatan need to be identified and documented within the proposal.) • Prior experience in Aceh and/or Nias, or staff capable to communicate in the Acehnese language or Nias language are a plus point. • Institutions, organizations and companies are all allowed to participate, but each proposal shall list an institutional or company bank account for eventual future payments when and if under contract, as personal bank accounts are not allowed. • For Nias Selatan, waterfront development is a key issue. Prior experience is a plus point. 9. A valid proposal shall follow following requirements : • To fill in the Proposal Submission Form, as in Annex III. 2
  • • To fill in the Pre-Formatted Technical and Financial Proposal, as in Annex IV. The financial proposal is in Indonesian Rupiah. • To attach an Organisational Portfolio demonstrating prior experience. • To attach CVs for each of the proposed staff members. The first page of each CV is a Capability Statement signed by the proposed staff (as in Annex V). Each CV proper is no longer than 3 pages. • To submit all documents in zip-file to pi.pekan@unhabitat-indonesia.org and to pi.pekan@gmail.com as Cc, no later than 10 July 2006, 11:59 PM. The zip-file size is no larger than 750 kB. Your email shall have the following subject- line : “PeKAN-IP submission of [name of your organisation]”. • To submit 2 hardcopies of the same proposal to : UN-Habitat ANSSP Jl. Taman Makam Pahlawan 3A Banda Aceh NAD – Aceh Province Indonesia The envelope will be marked with the label “PeKAN-IP”. The hardcopy proposals shall arrive no later than 12 July 2006, 06:00 PM. This delay is allowed in order not to discriminate against organizations outside Banda Aceh. A proposal is only valid if both the email and hardcopies are equal in content and submitted prior to the respective time limits. Fax submissions are not allowed. • The language of the Technical and Financial Proposal is English. (CVs and Organization Portfolio may be English or Bahasa Indonesia. In case of appointment, all reports will be in Bahasa Indonesia preceded by English executive summaries.) General Conditions applicable to the Proposal are listed in Annex VIa. General Conditions of Contract are listed in Annex VIb. 10. The evaluation of proposals will be done by UN-Habitat in a three-stage process. • Stage 1: elimination of non-responsive proposals (late submission, over-budget, missing documents, etc.) • Stage 2 : ranking of responsive proposals on their technical merits • Stage 3 : selection of winning proposals amongst the highest ranked, on the basis of best price ( lower than maximum budget). 11. UN-Habitat withholds the right not to appoint organizations to any one or all kecamatan in case there are no sufficient or no responsive proposals with sufficient technical merits. 12. UN-Habitat is not obliged to respond to requests for clarifications prior or after submission. 13. Organizations, institutions or companies which have already submitted proposals in response to this RFP earlier need not resubmit their proposals.. Yours sincerely, 3

  • Annex I General Programme Brief Process sheet on Kecamatan Development Planning Background: preparing moving beyond housing reconstruction. In the wake of the 2004/2005 tsunami and earthquakes, UN-Habitat provides housing in 13 subdistricts in Aceh and Nias, as part of its “Aceh Nias Settlement Support Programme”. UN-Habitat also commits funding for settlement-level infrastructure and for support to local governance in relation to settlement reconstruction.  Construction has started for 80% of the 3500 recipient households.  Infrastructure planning and the supporting Community Action Planning are under way.  Support to local governance and local planning activities will now be commenced, following initial try-outs within the framework of the UN Joint Programme in Meuraxa, Banda Aceh.  (Policy and planning support has so far been focused at strategic level, in cooperation with BRR and Aceh NAD Province.) Objectives: helping making kecamatan more development ready. UN-Habitat can assist communities in making them more ready to continue development and to attract new sources of funding once housing reconstruction is done. UN-Habitat therefore proposes to facilitate a 6-month process of participatory kecamatan planning allowing communities to outline their priorities, with the assistance of selected expert teams.  Working in 13 subdistricts, UN-Habitat has been collecting local knowledge in relation with development needs, whether for infrastructure or social-economic development. UN-Habitat cannot fund most of these needs.  UN-Habitat will promote “resource alliancing”, between the communities wherein it works and donors willing to continue development work.  UN-Habitat will facilitate a participatory planning process to formulate priorities early on, in anticipation of infrastructure and other programmes looking for “development-ready” communities and subdistricts. Process and Key Activities The programme will set up a short 6-month cycle of participatory planning activities, supported by expert teams. An “Kecamatan Forum / Subdistrict Forum” will be the meeting place for discussions and decisions on priorities, obstacles and recommendations. Specialist teams, one on social-economic development and one on infrastructure planning will deliver “expert opinions” in the form of research and proposals to the communities. 1. Preparatory Activities (April – June 2006):  HQ develops planning manual to guide the process.  HQ and DM selects development facilitators and spatial planner one or two for each kecamatan  HQ selects appropriate research and/or consulting teams for each kecamatan (open call for proposals in Indonesia).  HQ prepares data set for all teams and train them (start-off data). 5
  •  DM sets principal agreement and initial suggestions for priorities agreed between kecamatan and HQ and facilitate signing of MOU between Camat and HQ 2. Kecamatan Forum (July – December 2006) :  Camat sets up a Kecamatan Development Forum or integrate it with the existing forum if any, facilitated by DM and facilitator  Camat holds regular meeting under this Forum, this will be an interactive platform for all stakeholders at Kecamatan level  Facilitator assists to identify stakeholders, finalize meeting agenda with Camat and other stake holders, invite stakeholders and organize meeting under forum  Forum through the participation of Camat and other stakeholders will facilitate discussions on issues, problems, existing opportunities and will evaluate local priorities through Public Opinion  Kecamatan Forum provides input to, and receives regular feed-back from, expert teams.  Spatial Planner will coordinate and provide information and technical support to experts working at Kecamatan level.  DM and facilitator will communicate the result of each meeting to inhabitant of sub- district and all stakeholders, (public outreach)  The feedback on local priorities through public opinion will be integrated periodically with the experts’ feedback which will result in formulation of Kecamatan Development Plan.  The Final Kecamatan Development Plan will be an outcome of the workshop held at Kecamatan with the active participation of all stakeholders, DM, facilitator and community 3. Expert inputs (July – October 2006) :  HQ appoints two teams, each studying priority development and reconstruction issues;  Team 1 : social-economic issues (e.g. education, fisheries,…) : starts first  Team 2 : infrastructure planning issues (e.g. roads to markets) : takes in issues from Team 1  The teams meet regularly (3 times at least) with the Kecamatan Forum and provides reports which document development issues, for instance for new donor programme  The team also periodically integrates the feedback from the Kecamatan Forum in their study and presents the results in the Forum as per the set timeline  The team finalizes the reports based on feedback from Forum, DM and HQ  HQ with the assistance of DM and experts integrates all the reports across Kecamatan and formulates Provincial Development Plan. By December 2006, the activity can be concluded by the election of the “best kecamatan plan”, as an Anniversary activity. 6
