Question 5

Question answered 5/22/2020

Are additional language skills required to be confirmed for 5. Contract area 2 - Short-term assignments?
If so, where may this be indicated?

Yes, we want answers in which languages the consultants master for Contract area 2- Short-term assignments and you can state this under Appendix 10- Template for CV-Contract Area 2, new version 22-05-2020. I will upload a new edited document for Appendix 10, because I discovered that there was the wrong number on the Appendix at one place. Please use the new updated document called "Appendix 10- Template for CV Contract Area 2, new version 22-05-2020" when submitting the tender.

Question 4

Question answered 5/20/2020

Could you please clarify how many reference assignments are to be included? the document mentions "two 2 reference assignment within at least two 2 thematic areas". Does that mean at least two (2) per thematic area (i.e. minimum 4) or two in total - covering as many thematic area's as possible?

We mean that you must submit two (2) reference assignments, which include at least two (2) thematic areas for the specific reference assignments. We mean that you may submit reference assignments where more than two (2) thematic areas are affected for the individual reference assignment.

Question 3

Question answered 5/19/2020

With regards to the required references we understand that two (2) reference assignments within two (2) thematic areas listed in the ToR See Appendix 1 (ToR 2.3). Could you please clarify whether a full framework agreement or helpdesk contract would qualify as a reference assignment or do only individual call-offs under a framework and/or helpdesk qualify as eligible references.

Sida wants a individual call-off under a framework and/or helpdesk as eligible references for the reference assignments.

Question 2

Question answered 5/15/2020

In the tender form appendices, templates for CVs of experts for contract-area 1 and contract-area 2 are included. However in the tender form itself the only mention of experts to be presented is under the language requirements. Could you please clarify how many experts are expected (min and/or max) to be presented in the tender with CVs for contract area 1 and contract area 2. Also please clarify where (which section of the tender form) these CVs should be uploaded.

We would like to do an addition to the text in section 4.3 Technical and Professional Capacity (Contract Area 1- Helpdesk services) and in section 5.2.2 Technical and Professional Capacity (Contract Area 2- Short term assignments).

When assignments are called-off, consultants are classified in three different levels. Tenderer must be able to deliver experts on all levels during the whole contract period.

Level 1 consultant Requirements

• At least 50% of full-time working experience in at least ten (10) years within at least two (2) of the areas of expertise in section 2.3 in the ToR.

Level 2 consultant Requirements
• Advanced academic degree (minimum bachelor).
• At least 50% of full-time working experience in at least five (5) years within at least two (2) of the areas of expertise in section 2.3 in the ToR..

The Tenderer must have at its disposal at least six (6) consultants who as a team cover all levels (section 4.3 and 5.2.2) and all the areas
of expertise (Appendix 1- ToR section 2.3) for the performance of the assignment for (Contract Area 1) and for (Contract Area 2) in accordance with a suitable quality standard.

The tenderer shall, on request and without delay, provide documentation in accordance with the section “Qualification of tenderers" (section 3.5) in this tender document and have the CV-documentation for Appendix 9 and Appendix 10 ready for the six (6) consultants who as a team cover all levels (section 4.3 and 5.2.2).

However, please note that the CV:s requested in section 4.3 and 5.2.2 must be included in the tender.

Question 1

Question answered 5/14/2020

In the tender form section 5.7.0.1 'Quality assurance of assignments' a maximum of 30 points is listed. While in section 5.6.1 the max points for the QA system is listed as 20 points. Kindly confirm how many points are allocated across the evaluable areas.

There has been a mistake and there should be the same amount at the both places. The maximum point should be 20 points at 5.7.0.1 and at 5.6.1.
