In this respect the consultant will be part of a team that will finally develop a baseline report and Service Improvement Plan based on the of an organizational capacity assessment tool (OCAT) and also working on financial KPIs.

    The baseline information to be collected will be used to design the transformation agenda for the urban water service delivery in the respective state to move the SWB to a commercially viable entity. The information to be collected will include but not limited to the current financing arrangements (budgeting process, allocations and releases) from the state Government, financial management including reporting by the SWB, billing, collection and other revenue generation ventures.
