    Project title:                       Review the SADC Anti-Corruption Strategic Action Plan (2018-2022)

    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 SACC 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 contractor to review the SADC Anti-Corruption Strategic Action Plan (2018-2022). The proposed assessment should provide a baseline review of the implementation of the SADC strategic Anti-Corruption Action Plan (2018-2022) since its adoption by the Ministerial Committee of the Organ in 2018 and propose a revised strategic plan of action. It is expected that the review report will outline deliverables produced to date in comparison with the performance indicators and achievement of the objectives and draw lessons learned in the implementation of the current strategy and provide recommendations to increase the likelihood of success of the revised strategy.

    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.

    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.
