The Tamil Nadu Urban Sanitation Support Programme (TNUSSP), launched in November 2015, supports the GoTN in making improvements along the entire urban sanitation chain in cities. TNUSSP aims to scale safe and inclusive sanitation across the state by providing technical support to the state government and by working with the private sector, urban local bodies (ULB), sanitation workers, masons, schools, students, urban poor communities, desludging operators, and contractors, among others.
TNUSSP functions within the GoTN’s Municipal Administration and Water Supply (MAWS) Department. To support the cause, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) has set up a Technical Support Unit (TSU) at the state level, with two sub-TSUs each in Coimbatore and Trichy.
This document provides details on the quality assurance support provided by the TSU under TNUSSP during the construction of new FSTPs in phase III and phase IV. This document is a work in progress, and captures the activities in phase III and partially in phase IV. This document will be updated to reflect the latest developments.
