    Processing no.:                  17.2034.1.021.00

    Project name:                     SADC/GIZ CESARE Peace, Security and Good Governance

    Project title:                      To conduct an analysis of the regional anti-corruption assessment report          

    Country:                             Botswana

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    The German International Cooperation (GIZ) supports the SADC Organ Directorate – Peace, Security and Good Governance, in the implementation of The SADC Regional Indicative Strategic Development Plan (RISDP-2020-2030), SADC Protocol Against Corruption and SADC through the SADC/GIZ Project “Cooperation for the Enhancement of SADC Regional Economic Integration (CESARE) – Measure Peace, Security and Good Governance (PSGG)”.

    To facilitate the implementation of the SADC Anti-Corruption Strategic Action plan for 2018-2022, the SADC Anti-Corruption Committee (SACC) was established under Article 11 of the Protocol. The Committee is tasked with guiding the implementation of the Action Plan and advice the SADC Organ Secretariat on the same.

    It is against this backdrop, that GIZ CESARE-PSGG is looking for a consultant to carry out an assessment on the feasibility of establishing regional anti-corruption information sharing centre. The proposed assessment should assist the Committee in its decision whether to establish a regional centre by providing justification regarding relevance, cost effectiveness and management. It is expected that the establishment of the Centre will promote access to and facilitate sharing of critical information and other best practices amongst SADC Member States which will in turn strengthen cooperation in the fight against corruption.

    Evaluation of Offer

    After the final technical evaluation, technical offers scored 500 points and above only their financial bids 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:

    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 their 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.

    Date of decision to award contract

    For procedural reasons, no information on the status of the evaluation will be given pending the decision on contract award. We would therefore ask you to refrain from making enquiries about this. Only the winning bidder will be informed.
