Tunisia - Urban Water Supply Project : restructuring : Main report (English)

The objectives of the Urban Water Supply Project for Tunisia are to: i) sustain the reliability and quality of water service in Greater Tunis and selected urban centers, through augmentation, upgrade and renewal of water supply infrastructure; and ii) enhance the competitiveness and sustainability of Societe Nationale d'Exploitation et de Distribution des Eaux (SONEDE) operations, through modernization of management practices and information systems, for better cost control, enhanced revenue and more responsive customer service. The extension is necessary to allow the installation of a new information technology, or IT customer system to be operated jointly by Office National de l'Assainissement (ONAS) and SONEDE. The procurement process was rather complex and involved special procedures for turn-key IT system and which required additional assistance. The Bank provided considerable technical assistance including financing international experts to assist the Borrower in drafting the bidding documents. Following a long tender process, the contract was finally awarded in January 2011. The installation is now proceeding at full speed and the system will be fully installed by April 14, 2014. The extension of the closing date to the new date will therefore allow the completion of the installation of this IT customer system. The Borrower has submitted a revised disbursement plan.
