Modernisation of transport infrastructure: consulting for U-LEAD with Europe

Deutsche Gesellschaft für lnternationale Zusammenarbeit (GlZ) GmbH is implementing the U-LEAD with Europe Programme (the Programme) in Ukraine. GIZ acts on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).

For the purpose of developing capacities of local officials, the Programme is planning an initiative (the Initiative) for modernisation of transportation infrastructure in amalgamated hromadas (AHs). The Initiative aims to assist AHs in learning about alternative cost-effective technologies of building and maintaining local roads and transportation infrastructure. It is also envisioned that the Initiative provides step-by-step guidance and methodologies for the application of such technologies, as well as all relevant legal and regulatory procedures to enable AHs to build new roads and maintain existing ones in line with the existing quality, building, safety, and procurement regulations.

The scope of work includes the following tasks:

  • conduction of a study and comparative analysis of existing cost-effective techniques and materials for the construction of local roads applicable to Ukrainian conditions;
  • development of guidelines on cost-effective technologies (based on the conducted study) in road maintenance, design and construction at local level in a form of two manuals reflecting technical and legal aspects respectively;
  • contribution of contents to the U-LEAD with Europe training programme on sustainable mobility;
  • contribution of at least 15 inputs (presentations, face-to-face workshop sessions) to U-LEAD with Europe training measures;
  • direct support to 30 pilot AHs in the preparation of road infrastructure projects.

The Programme anticipates the Initiative to be implemented within the period from October 2018 until June 2019 and to cover all oblasts of Ukraine.

At the moment, the Programme seeks to receive expressions of interest from organisations (like NGOs etc.), established consultancies, consortia of experts etc. that have capability to implement the Initiative.
