The Archipelago of San Andrés Providencia and Santa Catalina (Islands), contracted with the Empresa de Energía del Archipelago de San Andrés Providencia y Santa Catalina S.A. E.S,P. the technical, administrative, financial, accounting, legal, social and environmental control of the pilot project for the energy use of solid waste. This includes: 1) Grant of the sanitary filling of the magic garden, contract N°1016 of 2017; 2) Infrastructure work required for the conditioning and delivery of solid waste to the use of the RSU plant, through two contracts No. 1724 of 2019 and 1013 of 2020. The objective if this is to verify compliance with each of the activities executed by the private operator to ensure and guarantee the operation of the Magic Garden Landfill.

The audit monitors two components. The first includes the works necessary for the preparation of waste from the selection and selective collection routes; those deposited in the landfill and the waste extracted through the mining process to be delivered to the energy use plant. This monitoring refers to the analysis of the equipment to be installed, the correct execution of the civil works to house the defined machinery, the feasibility of the financial study that will serve to cover the associated costs via tariffs.

The second component is related to monitoring each of the activities arising from the current operation of the Landfill, verifying compliance with the current Environmental Management Plan approved by the coral environmental authority and all other contractual obligations emanating from contract No. 1016 of 2017.

The activity of the Audit Office began in June 2019 through contract 1724 of 2019. This contract was ended in May 2020, and had the most significant results in the issuance of a favorable concept for the implementation of the works made feasible by the Ministry of Housing City and Territory. Analysis and adjustments in the financial model were made and are equivalent to a reduction of four billion per year ($4,000,000,000, oo), as well as an approach with FENOGE for the financing of a project that allows the installation of solar panels that supply part of the consumption of the urban waste processing and separation plant of the Magic Garden landfill, approximately 40% of the defined consumption.

Both auditing contracts included the monitoring and supervision of the activities required to carry out the defined infrastructure works, to date this component includes two warehouses for equipment and waste drying, adjustments for a leachate storage lagoon and a new cell for the disposal of rejects and ashes that is in an execution percentage close to 80%. Similarly, the operational component of the final disposal site has carried out the pertinent actions to guarantee the adequate disposal of waste from the technical and operational point of view.
