The Global Water Initiative (GWI) was an action-research and advocacy programme that ran from 2008-17. The project is now closed. This site is no longer being updated, but allows access to GWI outputs until 1 October 2020 when it will also close. After that date, information about the project and core GWI technical publications will continue to be available from the IIED website and Publications Library.
Contracting for water point construction: Provisional and final acceptance forms
Water users require a mechanism for holding contractors to account in the construction of water points. Using these GWI forms gives the water user committee the opportunity to make a detailed inventory and quality assessment of the work completed by the contractor, to help ensure that the eventual construction adheres to the original design. We provide these clear and accessible forms for each of the four water point options (2 x boreholes, 2 x hand-dug wells), and signpost records of other important water point acceptance documents which should be made available to the user by the contractor.
