Job Description


Un(e) ingenieur(e) avec un profil en design de systèmes d'eau potable, capable de faire une étude économique et sociale, afin de déterminer le meilleur système à adopter.


The main objective of the consultancy is to formulate a comprehensive and sustainable water master plan for Bidibidi, Imvepi and Rhino Refugee Settlements and their neighboring host communities in the West Nile, Uganda. To meet this objective, UNHCR intends to hire a consultancy firm to conduct feasibility study and detailed design of the integrated water supply in the three settlements and neighboring host communities. 


In preparing the feasibility study for each of the three settlements and neighboring host communities, the Consultant shall:

  • Review of all relevant, previous and present, studies and designs that could have impact on this study and complement missing data
  • For collection of data and coordination of the proposed plans the Consultant must coordinate with all stakeholders that have impact on the study/project such as the WASH sector, MWE, LDGs, OPM, etc.
    • Conducts detailed topographical survey of the settlements
    • Assess the economical, environmental and humanitarian problems associated with the current practice in water supply delivery and management
    • Explore, as a priority, the viability and possible utilization of the existing water supply sources such as existing water boreholes, catchment areas, etc…to the maximum extent possible. Proposing the development of new water supply sources shall be the last resort and shall only be explored if the existing sources don’t provide the quality and quantity of water needed.
    • Investigate existing settlements’ water supply facilities and quality of service, including water resources (if any), capacities, water quality, location of wells, reservoirs, pumping stations and transmission mains in settlements and neighboring host communities. Specific attention should be paid to sources of contamination of present and future water supply system.
      • Submit different design options including for each option; advantages and disadvantages, cost estimate, schematic design, sustainability solutions, Operation & maintenance schemes including training and capacity building, rehabilitation of existing water supply sources (where necessary), environmental assessment, and recommendations on the most feasible and technically sound option. This should be submitted to UNHCR in a detailed report (5 hard copies and one soft copy) in accordance with the timeline below.
      • Only upon receiving UNHCR endorsement of the detailed feasibility report, the Consultant will immediately thereafter commence the preliminary design of the approved option by UNHCR. The preliminary design report (5 hard copies and one soft copy) shall include, but not limited to, the following:

i)             the design of the entire integrated water supply system of the approved option with all associated components and facilities

ii)            assumptions, design parameters, coefficients, constants, formulas, detailed calculation sheets, etc.

iii)           all necessary drawings (layouts, profiles, sections, etc.)

iv)           proposed packaging / phasing of the project for implementation

v)            detailed cost break down for the project as a whole and for each package separately

vi)           Water quality control / treatment and or water treatment facilities with all necessary design details
