In order to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in the priority sector of drinking water supply and sanitation, the government of Sénegal has set up the National Drinking Water and Sewerage Program for the Millennium (PEPAM) for 2015. The program has two main objectives. The first is to obtain a rate of access to safe drinking water of 88% in Dakar and 79% in the centers of the interior of the country, as well as an overall coverage of 100%. The second objective is to obtain water with a quality in total accordance with the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO).

An analysis of investments has been realized within every urban center in order to proceed to a prioritization of operations and establish a priority investment Program. It is within the framework of the implementation of this program that CIRA SA intervenes for the studies and works control phases. The services consist in justifying and determining the dimensioning of works, clarifying the works program as defined in the identification and feasibility study, estimating the cost of works, determining the delay and the conditions of realization, elaborating a tender dossier, participating to the opening and analysis of offers and ensuring the control and supervision of works.
