Description New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) has issued a request for qualifications for consultancy services for Financial District and Seaport Climate Resilience Master Plan. NYCEDC is seeking qualified interdisciplinary teams of consultant firms, including but not limited to engineers, architects, resilience planners, urban planners, community engagement specialists, and policy/legislative specialists for the provision of master planning services for a potential shoreline extension or outboard structure to protect against the projected impacts of climate change in the Financial District and the South Street Seaport neighborhoods from the Brooklyn Bridge to the Battery in Lower Manhattan, New York. The Master Plan will develop a complete design, identify financing and governance strategies, including establishing a public-benefit corporation to finance, construct and manage the First Phase Project. Major reports in 2018 have solidified the scientific consensus that climate change will produce devastating global consequences at a faster rate than previously thought. A plan for action is needed to ensure that Lower Manhattan’s vitality and growth continues in this century and into the next. Lower Manhattan Climate Resilience Study was made to identify future climate risks and impacts on this area. Lower Manhattan neighborhoods represent a unique combination of high climate risk and few adaptation options due to a highly constrained waterfront that lacks the physical space needed to implement most large-scale adaptation projects. In the face of these unique conditions that make constructability of on-land adaptation measures infeasible, the study recommends developing a plan to extend the Manhattan shoreline into the East River to protect the low-lying and highly constrained Seaport and Financial District area. In addition, the city of New York will advance USD500 million for four capital projects to reinforce Lower Manhattan’s coastal areas and provide interim flood protections for the Seaport, parts of the Financial District and Two Bridges neighborhoods, to begin construction between 2019 and 2021. In the South Street Seaport area, parts of the Financial District and Two Bridges neighborhoods, Emergency Management (EM) will spend USD3.5 million to deploy a combination of just-in-time Tiger Dams and pre-deployed HESCO barriers by the 2019 hurricane season as temporary measures in advance of a permanent solution. In Battery Park City, the Battery Park City Authority (BPCA), with USD134 million in bonds, will reconstruct its esplanade and open space to adapt to new climate conditions. BPCA started the design in 2018 and will start construction in 2020. In The Battery, NYCEDC, in partnership with NYC Parks, BPCA and the Battery Conservancy, will invest USD165 million to elevate the wharf and esplanade and integrate a protective barrier such as a berm at the back of the park. This design will preserve the look and feel of the existing park while strengthening the shoreline. Construction will begin in 2021. In the Two Bridges neighborhood, NYCEDC is designing an integrated flood protection system comprised of permanent barriers and deployable or ‘flip up’ protections that will protect view corridors and public access. DDC will manage construction of the USD200 million investment, which will begin in 2021. The deadline for the submission of documents is on May 7, 2019

Description Lebanon has plans for renewable energy tenders including a procurement exercise for three 100 MW solar plus storage projects, for which it has received 75 expressions of interest. pv magazine has previously outlined the process of the tender – which is being managed by Lebanon’s Ministry of Energy and Water – which will see the Lebanese authorities review the expressions of interest before publishing a call for project proposals. In the meantime, Lebanon’s institutions have been seeking advice on best practice regarding the proposals call, and discussed the matter at the Beirut Energy Forum in September. The EBRD The process has been slow and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has offered a solution. The EBRD announced it “is intending to engage a consultant to provide support to the Lebanese authorities for the successful implementation of renewable energy auctions”. The selected consultancy will provide technical, financial and legal assistance for the solar plus storage tender and an on-shore wind exercise. The consultant will be selected competitively and it is hoped will start a 30-month contract in June. That timeframe provides a schedule for the tendering of Lebanon’s solar plus storage projects. Financing for the consultancy work, which it is estimated will cost around €1.75 million plus VAT, will be covered by EBRD donor funds. Interested consultants should file their applications no later than 5pm (GMT) on Wednesday, April 24. This article was amended on 09/04/19 to reflect the consultancy services are expected to be worth around €1.75 million, not €750,000, as previously stated.

Description Shell Oman Marketing Company has won a two-year contract to cater to 50 per cent of Oman Air’s aviation fuel needs at Muscat International Airport. The company has previously been catering to 20 per cent of Oman Air’s fuel needs, and this increase will make a positive contribution to the company’s earnings in the coming two years. Shell Oman has been the sole fuel farm operator at both Muscat and Salalah airports, and the main aviation fuel supplier to PDO’s airfields. Dr Mohammed Mahmood Al Balushi, CEO of Shell Oman, said: “We are pleased to be partnering with Oman Air, the national carrier, in working together to grow and develop Oman’s aviation industry for the benefit of the Sultanate and its people. Capitalizing on the major investments in infrastructure projects and maturing industrial and logistical hubs in Muscat, Sohar, Duqm and Salalah, Shell Oman has and will continue to remain focused on capturing business opportunities driven by increasing consumer demand.” “The Sultanate is set to transform into a regional hub attracting large investments and projects while driving the diversification of the Sultanate’s economy and enhancing its global competitiveness. Shell will play a crucial role in this vision by delivering global fuel technology and operational excellence to local and international customers,” he added. Abdul Aziz Al Raisi, chief executive officer, Oman Air said: “Oman Air is delighted to be partnering with an industry leader like Shell. With a pioneering history, not just in Oman but also across the world, Shell has carved a name as a reliable brand with its extensive network and supply chain capabilities. I can confidently say that this is a partnership between two leading brands that reflects growth through sustainable strategies and practices, and I look forward to working together.” Shell’s expertise in providing top quality fuels, and reliable, efficient and profitable operations, have been globally recognized since the advent of the jet age. In 1962, Shell began selling aviation fuel in Oman from Bait Al Falaj Airport. In later years, with the opening of Seeb International Airport, today known as Muscat International Airport, Shell has become a major supplier of jet fuel, lubricants and consultancy services in the Omani aviation sector.

Description The Umaa and Badassa dams which gobbled up Sh3.342 billion of taxpayer funds before they stalled without storing a cubic metre of water are back from the dead. Over six years after stalling, the Ministry of Water and Sanitation plans to pump more billions into reviving the projects. The projects fall under the National Water Harvesting and Storage Authority, previously known as the National Water Conservation and Pipeline Corporation (NWCPC), the parastatal that implements water conservation projects on behalf of the Water ministry. EXPENSES Both the ministry and the National Water Harvesting and Storage Authority were cagey on the amounts that will be spent to complete the works. However, Sunday Nation established that the government has injected Sh380,844,235 to consultancy services for revival of the two projects. As the plans continue, those accused of embezzling funds meant for the projects have never been brought to justice to date despite numerous investigations being conducted in efforts to "unearth the faces who ate money meant for the dams." Instead of facing justice for squandering public funds in projects that bore no fruits, some of the officials fingered out for being responsible for the grounding of the projects still hold senior positions in government while others won elective seats in the last General Election. EACC REPORT To date, the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission has never given a report of investigations into claims of bribery and embezzlement of funds connected to construction of the two dams. The government first admitted in July 2013 that the construction of the two dams had been mismanaged largely due to faulty design, but the grapevine had it that the projects had become cash cows for government officials who were irregularly pushing to benefit from changing designs and varying project costs. The contractor for Umaa dam, Draft and Development Engineers, requested to vary the initial cost of the project to Sh1.48 billion In 2013, the NWCPC varied the cost of Badasa dam by an additional Sh1.98 billion from Sh1.7 billion at tendering in 2009, an action that contravened the public procurement regulations which state that costs can only be increased by a maximum of 15 per cent after which the project must be subjected to a fresh tendering process. On Wednesday, Water CS Simon Chelugui told Sunday Nation that the new date for completion of Badassa dam is February 5, 2020, with the new contract period set at 37 months. "The works grounded in 2013 after contractual issues arose between the contractors (Midroc Drilling Company) and the National Water Conservation and Pipeline Corporation. But the issues have now being resolved," Mr Chelugui said. AGREEMENT According to the National Water Harvesting and Storage Authority, procurement of geotechnical investigations have been done and an agreement for works drafted. The agreement will be signed after the payment of Sh178,287,800 million to Tertiary Consulting Engineers, a consultancy firm which reviewed construction work status and soundness of constructed works. The corporation also signed a Sh202,556,435 deal with a company known as SMEC Kenya Ltd to carry out review of the design, check the soundness of the existing structures and supervise the remaining construction works at Umaa dam. Umaa dam, which is being constructed in Kitui, stalled in January 2011, a month after the contractor invited the EACC to audit the project after weeks of public spats between then Water minister Charity Ngilu and her assistant Mwangi Kiunjuri. During investigations, it was revealed that the contractor awarded the Sh824 million project had no prior experience in building dams. The construction of Umaa dam started in January 2009 and, if things went well, the project could have been completed in January 2011. By the time the project stalled in 2011, a total of Sh575 million out of an initial budget of Sh800 million had already been paid.

Description Wood and KBR have secured a new multi-million dollar contract to deliver an integrated front-end engineering design (FEED) for Shell’s Crux project to build a not normally manned (NNM) platform and gas export pipeline located approximately 600km north of Broome, offshore Western Australia. The Crux facilities will be an important source of backfill gas supply to the Shell-operated Prelude floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) facility. The remotely operated, minimum facilities NNM platform concept for Crux will dry the gas and export the gas/condensate to Prelude via a new 160km multiphase gas pipeline. Wood said on Wednesday that the services would be delivered over 18-months by Wood and KBR’s engineering and project management teams in Perth, WA, supported by Wood’s Kuala Lumpur resource base. The teams will provide a single integrated FEED for the Crux topsides, jacket, export pipeline and subsea pipeline end manifold (PLEM). Robin Watson, Wood’s chief executive, commented: “This contract win to deliver the next generation of offshore facilities for Shell Australia demonstrates our unrivaled subsea pipeline expertise and offshore engineering capabilities. “Wood has extensive experience in delivering technically complex subsea engineering projects in Western Australia. We are committed to expanding our portfolio in the region, developing local content by investing in industry talent, resources and supply chain. “Working alongside each other for more than 20 years, Wood and KBR provide a powerful combination, leveraging the experience of two tier one contractors.” Wood also provides specialist consultancy services for flexible riser integrity management to the Shell-operated Prelude FLNG facility. Stuart Bradie, KBR president and CEO, said: “KBR is committed to adding value to our customers. That’s why we are delighted to partner with Wood to bring together two industry leaders to deliver one world-class complimentary team whilst continuing our long relationship with Shell and Perth, Australia.” Earlier this week Offshore Energy Today reported that Australia’s NOPSEMA had released Shell’s Crux offshore project proposal for public comment. The Crux gas field is located some 160 kilometers north-east of the Prelude field in the northern Browse Basin offshore Western Australia. It is located in Commonwealth waters 190 kilometers offshore north-west Australia and 620 kilometers north-northeast of Broome. Front-end engineering and design for the project is expected to begin in 2019 with the financial investment decision (FID) currently scheduled to occur in 2020.

Description Africa Moyo Senior Business Reporter The coming into effect of the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets (PPDPA) Act (Chapter 22: 23), has created several job opportunities for citizens with requisite qualifications. Recently, there has been a flurry of adverts in the mainstream media as companies and local authorities seek to establish the position of procurement officer in line with the new law. Procurement was previously seen as an administration job, which tended to create inefficiencies. Last week, the Insurance Pensions Commission (IPEC), Pfura Rural District Council (RDC), Rushinga RDC, Upper Manyane RDC and Bikita RDC, and other private companies, ran adverts seeking to recruit procurement officers. Chitungwiza Municipality wants to employ a procurement manager while Gutu RDC wants a procurement and stores control officer. Procurement Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (PRAZ) chief executive officer Nyasha Chizu, confirmed to The Herald Business last week that the procurement law has created several job opportunities for Zimbabweans. “Indeed, the new law has created procurement positions for qualified people,” said Mr Chizu. “Government recognises that public procurement is a strategic lever and that effective service delivery can only be achieved when you have a professional unit. In that regard, the Act has assigned procurement to a procurement management ministry removing it from that system of procurement being an administrative function. So that explains its strategic role and to that effect, there are jobs that are now being created in procurement; that is why you see an influx in procurement positions.” Creation of “decent jobs” is Government’s top priority. The PPDPA Act was passed last year, principally to address the concerns that emanated from how the State Procurement Board (SPB) operated. The new Act has seen the establishment of the Procurement Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (PRAZ) to oversee the implementation of the new procurement law. PRAZ recently announced the introduction of standard bidding documents for use by all procuring entities to ensure transparency, uniformity and cost containment. The standard bidding documents were introduced in terms of Section 6 (1) of the PPDPA Act. The term ‘standard’ implies that the documents are used across all procuring entities to achieve uniformity when procuring the same goods, services, works and consultancy. Standard bidding documents are seen as critical if the country was to achieve President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s vision 2030 of an upper middle income economy. PRAZ has introduced five standard bidding documents which are; standard request for expressions of interest for the selection of consultancy services; standard request for proposals for the selection of consultancy services; standard bidding document for the procurement of goods; standard bidding document for the procurement of non-complex works; and standard bidding document for the procurement of non-consulting services.
