1 Water Sector Improvement Program (RRP PAL 44031) A. Program Description PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION SCHEDULE 1. The Program will support reform of the water and sanitation sector, focusing on improving policy and legal frameworks, financial sustainability, and capacity development. The impact of the Program will be sustainable water and sewerage services. The Program outcome will be that the demand for water and sewerage services be met. 2. Outputs from the Program will consist of 4 components as outlined below: (i) Component 1: Policy and Legal Framework. The policy and legal framework to enable the provision of sustainable and efficient water and sewerage services by an independent, government-owned corporate entity Palau Water and Sewer Corporation (PWSC); (ii) Component 2: Establishment of PWSC. It is anticipated that PWSC will commence delivering water and sewerage services 18 months after the approval of the PWSC Act (expected by 30 September 2010). During the 18-month transition period, the following will be undertaken: (i) preparation of an organizational structure for PWSC, (ii) transfer of water and sewerage assets from the Government to PWSC, (iii) development of an asset management plan covering planned investments and operations and maintenance, (iv) transfer of staff through the reduction in force provision of the Public Administration Act, (v) agreement on staff conditions of service and human resource management plan, (vi) adoption of financial management arrangements and systems, (vii) development of new billing and collection systems, (viii) development of guidelines and technical standards, and (ix) development of an institutional development plan. Capacity to effectively operate and manage PWSC will be undertaken including: (i) mentoring of management personnel, (ii) strengthening administration capacity, and (iii) technical skills development of the water and sewerage operations teams. A program of works to improve the operational efficiency of the Koror-Airai water supply system will also be implemented including: (i) universal metering of all water supply customers in Koror and Airai, (ii) disconnection of all illegal connections, (iii) installation of bulk supply and zone metering within the existing network and at all storage tanks, and (iv) reducing system losses through the preparation and implementation of a leak detection and repair program. (iii) Component 3: Tariff Reform. The Program supports: (i) progressive increase in tariffs to full cost recovery, and (ii) budget support to cover the difference between tariff revenue and actual costs during the transition. The first tariff increase has been approved as part of the FY2011 Budget Act. The second tariff increase will be regulated by the Minister of Finance in late 2011 to become effective in February The third and fourth tariff increases, being recommended to achieve full cost recovery for PWSC, will be enacted by the PWSC Board in subsequent years. To achieve full cost recovery over 4 years, residential water tariffs will be increased from $0.85/1,000 to $1.30/1,000 gallons for consumption up to 5,000

2 2 gallons per month (53% increase). Sewerage tariffs will also be charged to residential customers commencing at $0.30/1,000 gallons. Tariffs for high residential water users consuming more than 5,000 gallons per month and non-residential users will increase more steeply to $3.36/1,000 gallons. These rates will encourage prudent consumption and facilitate maintaining a sustainable supply of treated water. Commercial sewerage tariffs will be introduced at $1.70/1,000 gallons and increase steadily over the 4 years. (iv) Component 4: Community Awareness. Under the Program, the Government has undertaken a public advocacy program with politicians, civil society, and community groups on the government s policy, its importance to Palau s future, and the impact on the people. In doing so, they have sought support for the creation of PWSC, and for tariff reform, reducing the risk of waning support over time. The PWSC will conduct an awareness campaign on the importance of water conservation and behavior change to help the community adapt to the new policy arrangements and minimize their impact. The awareness campaign will include support for sanitation, hygiene, water use, and health awareness. B. Implementation Plan 1. Program Readiness Activities 3.

7 7 C. Program Management Arrangements 1. Project Implementation Organizations Roles and Responsibilities 8. The Ministry of Finance (MOF) will be the Executing Agency (EA) and will be responsible for the overall implementation of the program including compliance with all policy actions, administration, disbursements, and maintenance of records. A Program Implementation Unit (PIU) will be established within MOF to support the Ministry in its role and provide ongoing support to the Implementing Agencies (IAs). The PIU will include: (i) a utility manager with international experience and expertise in either water supply or sanitation sector operations; (ii) a water supply or sanitation operations manager, depending on the experience of the utility manager, with international experience; (iii) a financial management specialist; and (iv) secretarial support. The PIU may engage additional short term consultants as required during Program implementation. 9. Implementing Agencies will be: (i) MOF, (ii) MPIIC, and (iii) the PWSC, once it is established and in operation. Each of the IAs will be responsible for meeting the policy actions, or for the Program activities under their respective Ministries and Authority. 10. A Program Steering Committee (PSC) will be formed and will be chaired by the MOF. The members will include the Minister for MPIIC, the Financial Adviser to the Vice-President, the Legal Adviser to the President, and the General Manager of the PPIC. The Government, with ADB endorsement, may change the membership of the PSC as deemed appropriate during Program implementation. The PSC shall be responsible for overall direction, guidance, monitoring, and providing an oversight role for the Program. The PSC will meet at least on a quarterly basis to discuss the progress of the Program. The PIU will act as the Secretariat of the PSC. The roles and key responsibilities of the Program agencies are presented in Table 3.

9 9 D. Financial Management 1. Program Period and Tranching 12. The implementation period for the program is from December 2010 (loan effectiveness) to December All disbursements and policy actions in the Policy Matrix under the Program will be implemented within this period. The Program loan will be released in two tranches to meet the expected costs of policy reforms (Table 4). Table 4: Tranches for the Program Loan ($ million) Tranche OCR ADF Total Amount Release Date First Upon loan effectiveness with a target date December 2010 Second upon satisfactory compliance with all second Tranche policy conditions with an target date of April 2012 Total Source: Asian Development Bank estimates. 2. Financial Management Assessment 13. Palau has made solid progress in improving public financial management since achieving internal self-governance in 1981, particularly in government financial accounting and reporting. The Office of the Public Auditor and Office of the Special Prosecutor perform their mandate effectively. 1 Public finance legislative frameworks are judged to be reasonably sound. However, the quality of budget preparation and analysis still requires improvement. Likewise, cash planning and performance management systems inhibit the ability to plan and manage expenditure. 14. Recognizing these issues, the Government sought ADB assistance through TA 7421: Technical Assistance for Palau for Implementing a Medium-Term Budget Framework to strengthen budget preparation and management. Linked with this work, Pacific Financial Technical Assistance Centre is working with the MOF to strengthen cash management. 3. Disbursement 15. The loan proceeds will be used to finance the full foreign exchange costs excluding local duties and taxes of items produced and procured in ADB developing member countries, excluding ineligible items and imports financed by other bilateral and multilateral sources (see Appendix 14). In accordance with the provisions of ADB s Simplification of Disbursement Procedures and Related Requirements for Program Loans (1998), no supporting import documentation will be required if, during each year that loan proceeds are expected to be disbursed, the value of the Republic of Palau s total imports minus imports from nonmember countries, ineligible imports, and imports financed under other official development assistance is equal to, or greater than, the amount of the loan expected to be disbursed during such year. The Government will certify its compliance with this formula with each withdrawal request. Otherwise, import documentation under existing procedures will be required. ADB reserves the 1 ADB conducted a governance assessment of Palau utilizing the GACAP I methodology in preparation for the Country Partnership Strategy

10 10 right to audit the use of the loan proceeds and verify the accuracy of the Government's certification. 4. Accounting and Auditing 16. The Government will maintain records of account for the Program. To ensure proper fund management, ADB retains the right to audit the use of program loan proceeds. The accounts will be managed, operated, and liquidated in accordance with terms satisfactory to ADB. The revenue generated from the proceeds of the loan will be used to finance adjustment costs under the Program, including, but not limited to (i) developing a legal and policy framework for the water sector, (ii) establishing the PWSC, (iii) ensuring the sector s and PWSC s financial sustainability, and (iv) promoting water conservation. E. Performance Monitoring, Evaluation, Reporting and Communication 1.

Source: Asian Development Bank. 2. Monitoring 17. Project performance monitoring. The Government and ADB have agreed on a range of outcomes and output indicators to monitor program implementation and evaluate its impact within the overall program design and monitoring framework (see DMF above). The Government will establish a performance evaluation system for the program within 3 months of

13 13 loan effectiveness, which will be derived from the design and monitoring framework and policy matrix. 18. Safeguards monitoring. All safeguards are Category C. Should during the course of Program implementation, the PSC believe there may be an adverse impact on indigenous people, resettlement or the environment, the PSC, though the Minister of Finance, will advise ADB of their concerns and recommend appropriate action. 3. Evaluation 19. Program reviews will be undertaken on a continuing basis. The PSC will meet, as and when necessary, but at least once every quarter in a year to review program progress. ADB and the Government will conduct review missions 6 months after loan effectiveness and yearly thereafter to review the program s progress. A program review will also take place prior to the scheduled release of Tranche 2 funds. These reviews will, among others (i) assess implementation performance against program conditions and covenants, and (ii) identify relevant problems and constraints. If the reviews determine that changes are required in program implementation, the Government and ADB will agree on measures, including changes in implementation arrangements, to ensure that the program obligations are met. 4. Reporting 20. The MOF will provide ADB with (i) quarterly progress reports in a format consistent with ADB's Program Performance reporting system; (ii) consolidated annual reports including (a) progress achieved by output as measured through the indicator's performance targets, (b) key implementation issues and solutions, and (c) updated implementation plan for next 12 months; and (iii) a program completion report within 6 months of physical completion of the Program. To ensure programs continue to be both viable and sustainable, project accounts and the executing agency s audited financial statements, together with the associated auditor's report, should be adequately reviewed. F. Anticorruption Policy 21. ADB reserves the right to investigate, directly or through its agents, any violations of the Anticorruption Policy relating to the Project. 2 All contracts financed by ADB shall include provisions specifying the right of ADB to audit and examine the records and accounts of the executing agency and all Project contractors, suppliers, consultants and other service providers.
