Procurement of works and services under output-and performance-based road contracts and sample specifications (English)

These sample bidding documents for procurement of works and services under Output-and Performance-Based Road Contracts (OPRC) have been issued by the World Bank on a trial basis to provide its clients with an alternative to the traditional methods of procuring road reconstruction, rehabilitation and maintenance. The documents are a further development of the earlier 'sample bidding documents for procurement of Performance-based Management and Maintenance of Roads (PMMR)' which were issued by the Bank in February 2002. As their predecessor, these documents are focused to fit the specific nature of Performance-based Management and Maintenance of Roads (PMMR), but they are also suitable for the procurement of works and services under longer-term 'Design-Build-Operate-Maintain (DBOM)' contracts for roads. The present documents are designed to allow for much flexibility in their use, according to the specific needs of the road network under contract (called 'the Road' or 'Roads' in the documents). An important focus of the contract is on management and maintenance services, including physical works on the roads under contract which are needed to maintain the agreed service levels over time, but also all activities related to the management and evaluation of the road network under contract. The contract also allows for the execution of: (i) rehabilitation works to be carried out in order to bring the roads up to pre-defined standards; (ii) improvement works aiming at adding new characteristics to the roads in response to new traffic, safety or other considerations; and (iii) emergency works comprising of activities needed to reinstate the roads after damage resulting from unforeseen natural phenomena with imponderable consequences
