Wastewater Treatment Agreement

The draft agreement contains exemption provisions (C.1.10) and contains a well-developed dispute resolution provision (CL 9). The host government`s objective is (i) to improve and expand the current drinking water system to ensure a 24-hour water supply, improve drinking water quality, expand the customer base, ensure effective wastewater treatment and disposal, improve water supplies to poor and backward communities, and ensure financial self-sufficiency. Provisions that may not be advised to replicate/need may be reconsidered at a later date: operator to manage and carry out capital work in accordance with an agreed investment programme. The operator paid a fixed fee – a benefit fee – a percentage of the work for the management of the investment plan and the work. Significant investments are needed to improve assets, reduce leakage and increase frequency (with target of 24/7) It is unclear how the operator will retain authority over public service personnel and how discipline will be managed. This is a critical area, as the operator will depend in part on staff performance to achieve performance standards. The clearest solution is the transfer of staff to the operator, but there are often legal/union/political restrictions in this context and it is rare, at least in management contracts, to be practical. Detachment of staff to the operator is often the most practical approach to short-term management contracts and may sometimes be the only method available in the law. However, difficulties may still arise to ensure that employees feel that they are presenting themselves to the operator and not to the employer. This can be mitigated by the operator deciding on the level of wages and requiring the employer to act on disciplinary matters. However, it is not clear how the parties would resolve a dispute if the operator recommended a member of the discipline and the Authority refused to take action. Circumstances in which this contract may be appropriate: . Clear provisions for changes in circumstances and changes (point 20) Benefits based on the reduction of the utility`s deficit each year (by reducing leakage and non-revenue links, increased revenue due to better billing and higher rates) contract for the operation and maintenance of water and sanitation systems in a city of initial comparative assessment of the period provided for at the beginning of the contract to verify the figures on the performance of the distribution company and the quality of the assets that are the benchmark for performance and improvement under the contract.
