Mozambique seeks hydrologist for Nacala Dam rehabilitation

The government of Mozambique invites applications for a hydrologist to oversee rehabilitation of Nacala Dam and reservoir at Nacala, Mozambique. Responses are due May 12.

Mozambique’s Ministry of Planning and Development and the U.S.-backed Millennium Challenge Corp. formed a five-year compact, Millennium Challenge Account-Mozambique, which is advancing the Nacala Dam project. The program is intended to reduce poverty through economic growth in Niassa, Cabo Delgado, Nampula, and Zambezia by focusing on physical assets investments, policy reform, capacity building, and institutional strengthening.

The government last year called for studies, design, and construction supervision for Nacala. (HNN 10/28/08)

MCA-Mozambique now invites applications from hydrologists with a degree in hydrology, hydraulics, or civil engineering, at least 10 years’ experience in such work, and fluency in English and Portuguese.

The hydrologist is to prepare terms of reference and requests for proposals to recruit other consultants. The hydrologist also is to supervise development of project designs, drawings, and tender documents. Work also includes review and comment on feasibility and design studies and ensuring that construction activities are planned and implemented on schedule and in accordance with standards.

Work is to be performed at the Nacala Dam site for an initial period of two years with the possibility of extension.

Applications, referring to �Request for Consultant Qualifications (RFQ) No. MCA-MOZ-CQS-15-08-061: Hydrologist for Nacala Dam Project,� are due by 10 a.m. May 12, by mail or e-mail to the address below.
