the proceeds of the loan to payment under the contract for which this invitation for prequalification is issued.
Disbursement of the ODA loan by JICA will be subjected, in all respects, to the terms and conditions of the loan
agreement including the disbursement procedures and the “Guidelines for Procurement under JICA ODA loans”. The

vested with the National Water Supply & Drainage Board “a body corporate established under the National Water
Supply and Drainage Board Law No. 2 of 1974 amended” (hereinafter referred to as NWSDB), who will own the

shall derive any rights from the loan agreement or have any claim to the loan proceeds. The above loan agreement will
cover only a part of the project cost. As for the remaining portion, Government of Democratic Republic of Sri Lanka
will take appropriate measures for finance.

JICA requires that bidders and contractors, as well as NWSDB under contracts funded with JICA ODA loans and
other Japanese ODA, observe the highest standard of ethics during the procurement and execution of such contracts.

         corrupt or fraudulent practices in competing for the contract in question;
b)       will recognise a contractor as ineligible, for a period determined by JICA, to be awarded a contract funded
         with JICA ODA loans if at any time determines that the contractor has engaged in corrupt or fraudulent
         practices in competing for, or in executing, another contract funded with JICA ODA loans or other Japanese
