The World Bank invites expressions of interest from consultants to help develop a national emergency preparedness plan for dams for Vietnam’s Directorate of Water Resources. Responses are due October 17.
In addition to supporting the Vietnam government in improving and modernizing irrigation systems through a Water Resource and Assistance Program, the World Bank has supported work to improve safety and management of six major dams, Dau Tieng, Cau Son, Phu Ninh, Ke Go, Yen Lap, and Da Ban.
The bank said emergency preparedness plans have been prepared for each dam, but they are only recognized at the project scale, rather than being applied to the national level as an emergency preparedness plan for the safety of all dams in Vietnam.
As a result, the bank seeks a local-based international consultant (Econsult Selection No. 1050302) and a domestic consultant (Econsult Selection No. 1050313) to develop guidelines for an emergency preparedness plan for dams.
Expressions of interest and qualifications in English are to be submitted by October 17 via the World Bank Group’s eConsultant2 Internet site below. For information, see the eConsultant2 Internet site, https://wbgeconsult2.worldbank.org/wbgec/index.html, Bidding Opportunities, Selection Nos. 1050302 and 1050313.
