The World Bank’s International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) is seeking waterworks consultants to supervise two engineering projects in Brazil that are being carried out by Sergipe state water utility Deso.

The works are part of the bank’s 117mn-real (US$29.3mn) “Sergipe Water Project” of which the IBRD is providing 70.3mn reais, according to bank procurement documents.

One initiative is for the supervision of stage two work to build a sewer system and stage one works to construct a rainwater drainage system in the city of Itabaiana.

Interested parties must submit expressions of interest, showing their qualifications and describing their experience, by January 15, Deso said in a procurement notice.

Expressions of interests demonstrating technical and operational capacity must be submitted by January 12.

The Sergipe Water Project, which is aimed at promoting the efficient and sustainable use of water in the Sergipe river basin, should be completed by June 2017.
