2. To review the preliminary designs and recommendations from the international firm (and  input into this process – depending on start of assignment) 
3. To conduct feasibility studies for the selected options in both cities, that includes field  assessments of appropriate sites selected, calculating quantity of sludge and septage currently reaching treatment plants, assessing current reuse potential and operation management considerations (requiring ongoing discussions with the informed choice task forces and other relevant stakeholders) 
4. To develop detailed designs and costings (Bills of Quantity) of the final proposed and viable  faecal sludge and septage treatment systems. 
5. To prepare financial and economic analysis of the proposed option & propose working plan  for implementation. 
6. To support implementation of the proposed technology, including training on operation and  maintenance and construction supervision.

DELIVERABLES.
PHASE 1.
Deliverable 1: Successful completion of the Inception Report that comprises a) - Summary  preliminary assessment on the viability of potential treatment/disposal & reuse options & final 
recommended option(s); b) Summary of key Highlights related to FSM from existing SDG data, city  plans and maps on urban sanitation - brief assessment of LGA & UTILITY capacity to manage FS and training needs based on selected options c) Assessment of preliminary design of the selected potential options (scenarios) and provide recommendations including d) Finalised and refined  methodology & operational plan of the assignment. 

Deliverable 2: Successful completion of the feasibility study to identified viable option(s) for faecal  sludge and septage treatment/disposal and reused for the two cities.  

Deliverable 3: Successful completion of the Detailed Engineering design, BOQ, cost estimates for the  viable faecal sludge treatment/disposal & reuse option for each city including other services such as accessibility, water, power and fencing. This will include provision of detailed drawings and Process diagram(s) with flows and description of influent and outflow (including key min/max values for input and expected % reduction in chemical and biological parameters of the out puts). This will also include but not limited to: detailed design criteria & their assessments; assessment of operation requirements; assessment on O&M requirements (and operation plan); contextual assessment; proposed management model & institutional set up and detailed assessment of pros and cons of the proposed feasible option(s) / scenario(s).
