Mott MacDonald helps improve water services management in 30 Romanian towns

Mott MacDonald has won an institutional support contract from Romania’s Ministry of European Integration to help the government deliver a programme to transform services provision and investment in sustainable water and wastewater in 30 small and medium sized towns.

The €1.8 million EU-funded project is the first phase of the Government’s long-term national development initiative to assist these small and medium towns which have been unable attract financing, to improve urban infrastructure. This will help national and local authorities comply with the Romanian National Development Plan (NDP) and also meet EU directives en-route to accession.

By improving the capacity of the local authorities and their operators, the project will contribute towards more effective performance by the Romanian coordinating body, the regional operating companies and the Association of Municipalities as well as helping them to comply with various EU agreements and meet loan repayment requirements.

Acting as advisory consultants, Mott MacDonald will provide management support to the national coordinating body and groups of local authorities in the five initial regions of Salaj, Botosani, Alba, Calarasi and Hunedoara. Working with ULGN, SAFAGE and GIE, Mott MacDonald will provide technical assistance to improve the capacity of selected towns to monitor the performance of their service operators as well as focusing on efficiency, cost-control and loss reduction to enhance the towns’ management capacity and ability to plan investment programmes and assume and service debts. Appropriate training on management and operational issues will also be provided to service operators themselves.

The project will be completed by the end of 2005.
