REQUEST FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST (EOI) FOR GIS-BASED MAPPING AND ENGINEERING DESIGN UNDER THE NIGERIA EROSION AND WATERSHED MANAGEMENT PROJECT (NEWMAP) IN ONDO STATE, NIGERIA

This request for expression of interest follows the update of the general procurement notice for this project that appeared in UN Development Business issue of 27th April 2012 and in Nigerian newspapers of 27th September 2012.

As part of Government’s commitment to transformation of the Nigerian socio-economy landscape, a multi-sector project is being executed in Nigeria to mitigate the vulnerability to erosion and support the people as they relate to their land. The Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project (NEWMAP) as an 8-year multi-sectoral and multi-scale program that targets states with acute gully erosion and degraded forest reserves. The project is involving many Federal and state ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs), Local Governments, communities and civil Societies who are responsible for planning, economy, finance, works, agriculture, water resources, forests, transport, power, emergency response as well as those focused on climate and hydrological information or watershed/basin regulation. In order to achieve this, the Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) has received a credit of US$500 million from the International Development Association (IDA) for the implementation of the Nigeria Erosion and Watershed Management Project.

The Ondo State Project Management Unit of the NigeriaErosion and Watershed Management Project intends to use part of the proceeds of the credit for the recruitment of a competent consulting firm/firm s for the Mapping of Gully Erosion/flood Sites in the state and general land use/land cover classification within the Geographic Information System (GIS) framework. So also the engineering studies and design of infrastructure that will fix the problems.

The exercise is to help in knowing the status of gully erosion/flood sites and land resources in the state for effective management, monitoring and design of remediation works. The mapping will also underpin project presentation and reporting on present and future risk potentials of erosion sites especially the prioritized sites for the NEWMAP Gully RapidAction and Slope Stabilization (GRASS) component.

SCOPE OF WORK (Terms of Reference)
The scope of the work includes the following:

1. Identification of the sites affected by flood and erosion in the state through proper ground ‘trothing’ and/or field visits which involve, appraisals, observations and measurements (sample/specimen collection).

2. Acquisition of necessary spatially referenced data of both primary source(such as attributes of selected sites, comprising of soil types, vegetation types, land cover types and geo-ecological characteristics of the area.

3. Acquisition of spatial data of secondary origin, such as topographic sheets and satellite images and other records.

4. Development of spatial database that can be updated from time to time and subsequently, build a GIS for erosion and flood (Erosion and Flood Information systems (EROFLIS) from the acquired primary and secondary data arising in (1) to(3) above.

5. Conduct series of spatial analyses and modelling to produce map documents that can guide key policy and management decision making.

6. Derivation of geo-database on the priority erosion and flood sites in the state

7. Identification and delineation of major and minor watersheds in the state

8. Identification of other potential areas prone to gully erosion and flooding in the state and the classification of the degree of vulnerability/risk potentials

9. Identification of the mechanisms and processes driving erosion and flood development in the state

10. Assessment of the thesocio-economic impact of gully erosion and flood hazards on the people

11. Present in easy to read maps
i. Spatial extent of erosion in the selected area
ii. Spatial extent of Flood affected area
iii. Selection of suitable site for resettlements
v. Predictive models of erosion and flood risk hazard based on anthropogenic, climatic and environmental factors

12. Best management practices that could mitigate the current problems and prevent future erosion and flood hazards in the state.

TIME FRAME
The assignment shall be completed within Twelve (12) weeks after signing of contract.

The expected output includes:

1. Map of land use/Land cover types
2. Maps of predicted flood sites and likely affected areas
3. GIS of disaster risk that can be updated (specific to erosion and flooding)
4. Maps showing the best location for rehabilitation for the affected persons
5. Catchment Area Delineation Maps.
6. Contract document and specifications
7. Engineering Drawings
8. Bill of Engineering Measurement and Evaluation (BEME)

The following deliverables will also be expected:

(i) Six (6 ) hard copies and electronic version of Inception Report with detailed work plan and indicators of performance. To be delivered within one week of signing the contract;
(ii) Eight hard copies and electronic version of Draft Report to be submitted to the client and circulated for comments and relevant issues raised incorporated into revised version. This will be delivered three (3) weeks after submission of inception report.
(iii) Final Report to include a concise executive Summary with all annexes and bibliography and the dissemination/disclosure plan, to be delivered 2 weeks after submission of draft report.
(iv) Six (6) hard copies and electronic version of Inception Design Report withdrawings
(v) Eight hard copies and electronic version of Draft Report of Engineering Design and Drawings contract documents, and specification and bill of Engineering Measurement and Evaluation (unpriced) to be submitted to the client and circulated for comments and relevant issues raised incorporated into revised version. This will be delivered three (3)week s after submission of inception report.
(vi) Final Report of Engineering Design and Drawings, Contract Document and specifications and bill of Engineering Measurement and Evaluation (priced and unpriced) to include a concise Executive Summary with all annexes and bibliography and the dissemination/disclosure plan, to be delivered 2 weeks after submission of draft report.
