SANSOM, K. ... et al, 2003. Contracting out water and sanitation services - Vol. 1: Guidance notes for service and management contracts in developing countries. Loughborough: WEDC, Loughborough University.
This book considers how contracting out can be further enhanced to deliver improved water and sanitation service provision in low- and middle-income countries. Using example contract clauses and typical processes, it provides guidance for developing well-designed contracts. A number of specific guiding principles are included, as well as discussion of an appropriate enabling environment for contracting out.
