Iraq - Emergency Electricity Reconstruction Project (Inglês)

Ratings for the Emergency Electricity Reconstruction Project for Iraq were as follows: outcomes were unsatisfactory, risk to development outcome was high, Bank performance was unsatisfactory, and Borrower performance was moderately unsatisfactory. Some lessons learned included: large infrastructure projects in fragile state environments may often require going for simpler new-build (green-fields) projects than rehabilitation or partial reconstruction works. Good technical studies can reduce risks for the bidders potentially leading to greater participation as well as lower costs. Fragile and conflict countries usually have significant capacity constraints as well as overwhelming demands on the government, including fiscal pressures, conflict concerns, and political stability concerns. These capacity constraints can be addressed by greater Bank engagement in the procurement process and project implementation through handholding, supported by appropriate training of the project management team (PMT) and hiring consultants. Regular communications and meetings are essential to ensure that issues affecting progress are quickly identified and resolved. A turnkey contract may have shifted many of the project risks to the contractor, possibly resulting in higher price discovery but a higher probability of project completion. The use of special commitments from the World Bank to provide comfort to the contractor should incorporate provisions for withdrawal of the World Bank from the project in face of visible indications of implementation failure. In case of projects in conflict countries, a separate allocation should be made for security costs for contractors as well as consultants. Ex ante arrangements for security may relieve bidder anxiety and foster greater bidder participation.
