    Dear Sir/Madam,

    The German International Cooperation (GIZ) supports the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources (FANR) Directorate of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) in the implementation of SADC protocols as well as development and implementation of strategies and programmes for biodiversity and natural resource management by national and regional actors, through the SADC/GIZ Project “Transboundary Use and Protection of Natural Resources (TUPNR) in SADC region”.

    SADC Ministers of Environment, Natural Resources and Tourism at their joint meeting of 25 October 2019, in Arusha, Tanzania, directed SADC Secretariat to develop a “Framework for a SADC Wildlife-based Economy Strategy by the end of 2021”. The Framework will serve as a guiding instrument that clearly defines the main elements of a Framework-Strategy for a SADC Wildlife- based Economy; roles and responsibilities of Member States, relevant regional institutions, including the SADC Secretariat, and other relevant stakeholders towards development and implementation of specific actions of a SADC wildlife-based economy. The Framework should also consider the role and value of TFCAs as well as wildlife tourism in the region’s socio- economic development efforts towards a wildlife-based economy.

    Therefore, to further the implementation of the biodiversity related Protocol on Forestry, Protocol on Fisheries, Protocol on Tourism as well as Protocol on Wildlife Conservation and Law Enforcement, individual consultants are invited to bid for the assignment on Development of a Framework Strategy for a SADC Wildlife-based Economy. The selected consultant will enter into a contract with GIZ

    Evaluation of Offer

    After the final technical evaluation, only the price offers of bids with 500 points and above will be opened and evaluated. Technical offers below 500 points will be considered as technically not acceptable. The weightings are as below for Technical (T) and Financial (F);

    T: 70%, the price offer and F: 30%. The following formula will be used:

    technical evaluation of bid x 70            most economical bid x 30
    _________________________      +      _____________________

    technical evaluation of best bid                         price of bid

    The contract will be awarded to the bidder with the highest score (Technical plus Financial weighing), and in case of achieving the same score, a priority is given to the bidder who submitted the bid earlier. Contractual negotiations are generally commenced with the bidder achieving the highest score. Should these negotiations not be successful, the second highest scorer on the list shall be invited to commence negotiations.
