USAID has been working in partnership with the Government of Egypt for the expansion of services and important reforms of the water and waste water sector. However, USAID’s strategy has shifted from funding large construction projects in major urban areas to broader sector reform as well as towards smaller investments to construct and upgrade water and waste water facilities in under served cities and rural areas.
In early 2014, USAID has extended a Purchase Order with Chemonics Egypt in the amount of 925,523 EGP for a period of nine months. Under this action Chemonics Egypt will continue to provide construction monitoring support services under USAID/Egypt’s Water and Wastewater Construction Program (WWCP). The services are provided in connection with a component in WWCP called the Job Creation Through Essential Services Delivery (JCESD).
In addition to reporting project’s time, cost control, quality adherence, validating progress payments and milestones the consultancy services shall also report on the number of people gaining access to an improved drinking water resource; the number of people gaining access to improved sanitation facilities and the number of people receiving new and or temporary employment as a result of the USAID development aid investments.
