The Kathmandu Valley Water Supply Management Support Committee invited bids from international water utility companies for the job of Management Contractor. DFID understands that Severn Trent Water International Ltd, a UK based company, was the only bidder and that the Evaluation Committee, consisting of relevant Government representatives, is evaluating the bid.

The Management Contractor will be required to assist the newly formed Water Utility Operator company. The company will assume responsibility for managing the water supply system of the Kathmandu Valley from around July 2006.
