DAI, the implementer of the “USAID-funded Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (IUWASH) Project” invites qualified offerors to submit proposals to supply and deliver “Develop a Web Based Application for Credit Worthiness Ladder in support of program implementation.  The USAID Indonesia Urban Water Sanitation and Hygiene (USAID IUWASH) project is a sixty-month program funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented under the leadership of DAI. USAID IUWASH works with government, the private sector, NGOs, community groups and other stakeholders to improve access to safe water supply and sanitation in Indonesia’s urban areas. The expected results to be achieved are: (a) Two million people in urban areas gain access to improved water supply; (b) 250,000 people in urban areas gain access to improved sanitation facilities; and (c) the per unit water cost paid by the poor in targeted areas decreases by at least 20%.

To achieve the above, technical assistance is divided in three main technical components:
  • Mobilizing demand for water supply and sanitation service delivery, 
  • Improving and expanding capacity for water and sanitation service delivery, and
  • Strengthening policy and the financial enabling environment for improved water supply and sanitation service delivery.
The Credit Worthiness Ladder is a tool to appraise PDAM’s business and financial risk based on several indicators, such as debt management, profitability and tariff structure, cash flow, customers, resources, government policy, etc.

The IUWASH Creditworthiness Ladder is a monitoring tool composed of indicators commonly used by rating agencies and commercial banks. In order to make the CL as “accurate” as possible, IUWASH deliberately selected indicators commonly used by rating agencies and commercial banks to gauge bankability. Thus, it may be considered as a simplified proxy of a credit rating, as well as instructive to utilities in helping to determine what steps they can take to achieve a higher credit rating.

Nonetheless, the CL is not meant to replicate/replace the actual credit rating process. The development of the CL is born out of the Project’s need to monitor creditworthiness improvements resulting from technical assistance. While it can be used as a learning tool, it does not replicate or replace a credit rating, which ultimately reflects the collective opinion of a rating committee. Further, the CL deliberately deemphasizes elements of creditworthiness that are beyond the control of the water utility, such as the robustness of the local economy.

This project’s purpose is to develop a Web Based Application for CWL with aims to: 1. Enable PDAMs to use the tool online 2. To digitally collect the data filled by PDAMs 3. To automatically calculate PDAM performance based on those data 4. To present the data to public / stakeholders Since the application is web based, It will use PHP (Hypertext Preprocessor) as programming language,MySQL as database, and HTML with HTML5 technology combined with most famous JavaScript library, jQuery for the interface.

For the above mentioned subject, IUWASH inviting you to submit the proposal. Detail info please see : HERE

Thank you very much for your kind attention

Sincerely yours,
