7. The Ministry of Planning and Development (MPD) on behalf of the
Government of Mozambique and the Millennium Challenge Corporation,
on behalf of the United States Government have signed a Compact
Agreement for a USD 507 million (MCC funding), to be implemented in
5 years. The objective of the proposed program is to reduce poverty
through economic growth in Niassa, Cabo Delgado, Nampula and
Zambezia provinces by focusing on certain investments in physical
assets, policy reform, capacity building and institutional
strengthening. Millennium Challenge Account Mozambique
(MCA-Mozambique) on behalf of the Government intends to apply a
portion of the proceeds of MCC funding, to eligible payments under
this contract. Payments by MCA-Mocambique will be subject, in all
respects, to the terms and conditions, including restrictions on the
use of MCC funding of the Compact. No party other than the
Government and MCA-Mozambique shall derive any rights from the
Compact or have any claim to the proceeds of MCC funding. The
program contains four projects including Water Supply and
Sanitation, Roads, Land Tenure Services, and Farmer Income
Support(FISP). Implementing entities for the various projects will
include government ministries and agencies, NGOs, private companies,
or other entities. For the implementation of the program, the
MCA-Mozambique is soliciting Consultant Firms to submit their
technical and financial proposals in separate envelopes for the
following service:

SIMPLIFIED ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT FOR THE FISP

8. The objective of the FISP is to stop the spread of Coconut
Lethal Yellowing Disease (CLYD). A secondary objective is to
improve productivity of coconut products and encourage
diversification into other cash crop production. The project will
eliminate biological and technical barriers hindering economic
growth among farms and targeted enterprises located in the Compact
area's eastern coastal belt (Zambezia and Nampula provinces) and,
through crop diversification and improved farming practices, it will
increase incomes lost to CLYD. With the above requested service,
the consultants shall evaluate the potential negative direct,
indirect, induced, and cumulative environmental impacts of the
Project through the Simplified Environmental Assessment that will be
conducted. In addition to this assessment, MCA-Mozambique will
ensure that a project-specific environmental management plan (EMP)
will be developed, implemented and monitored during project
life-time. For the complete Request for Consultant Qualifications
(RFQ) including the Letter of Invitation, Terms of Reference and
required forms go to the following websites: http://mcc.dgmarket.com
and http://www.mpd.gov.mz. Alternatively, contact the address
provided in Item 6B. It is expected that the selected consultant be
able to mobilize and start the assignment by October, 2008.
Consultant submissions should make reference to REF. No.
MCA-MOZ-CQS-1A-08-014: Simplified Environmental Assessment for the
FISP, which must be submitted no later than September 26, 2008 by
10:00 am (local time) at the above mentioned address.
