(x) For robust safeguards compliance monitoring, formats with specific monitoring parameters should be included in contracts. Information, education, and communication campaigns are required throughout project implementation, to address people ’s concerns expediently. C. Recommendations 1. Project Related 44. Further action or follow-up. These include the execution of works that would ensure envisaged benefits to consumers, such as (i) interconnections of existing and new water supply pipes, (ii) works to ensure the continuity of sewerage networks, (iii) the laying of pipeline for sewage flow to STPs, (iv) the restoration of power to the pre-treatment facility, (v) engagement of an independent agency for O&M of the STP at Jabalpur, (vi) the execution of household service connections in Bhopal in 3 months, and (vii) monitoring by the UADD. 45 . Covenants. Covenants on tariff reforms should be supported by a long-term plan with intermediate steps for the short-, medium-, and long-term, to recover O&M costs in full. 46. Future monitoring. The executing agency and municipal corporations should monitor O&M through periodic audits to ensure the sustainability of the created facilities. 47. Institutional capacity building. A mix of permanent government and municipal employees and long-term consultants in the PMU and PIUs will help build in-house capacity. 48. Timing of the project performance evaluation report. The project performance evaluation report should be prepared at the end of 2018. The execution of works to ensure benefits as envisaged at the consumers’ end (para . 43) will be followed up by the project performance evaluation report. 2. General 49. The project completion report makes the following general recommendations: (i) Expanded technical assistance inputs. More advanced project preparedness is required, using ADB’s project design facility if necessary . (ii) Mapping of utilities. Proper mapping of existing utilities and the use of available scaled maps during design would enable precision and rationalize contingency provisions. (iii) Contract packaging. Contract packaging should be based on technical parameters, size, the availability of potential contractors, and the equitable distribution of risks. (iv) Contract management. Partial payment of the running account bill and the release of the remaining amount post-audit is recommended. The facility would cease if over 10% variation is observed. This would enable contractor cash flows and encourage accurate bill submission. (v) Engagement of a contracts and legal expert . Executing agencies should engage a contracts and legal expert from the beginning to assist with the review of standard contract documents and address claims, interpret contract clauses, and deal with disputes. (vi) Consultancy. Consultant payments for designs based on deliverables, and for supervision based on inputs, and for timely delivery and the efficient use of experts’ inputs impr ove accountability.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
