The company shall provide Recommendation Letters as a support for the projects stated as a Company’s experience.
The selected firm should confirm availability of experts in the following areas. CVs of individual key experts are not required for the purpose of expressions of interest, just confirmation of availability of required experts:
The detailed qualification requirements for the key experts are indicated in the TOR.
The attention of interested Consultants is drawn to paragraph 1.9 of the World Bank’s Guidelines: Selection and Employment of Consultants [under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits & Grants] by World Bank Borrowers dated January 2011, Revised July 2014 (“Consultant Guidelines”), setting forth the World Bank’s policy on conflict of interest.
Consultants may associate with other firms in the form of a joint venture or a sub consultancy to enhance their qualifications. The “association” may take the form of a Joint Venture or a sub consultancy. In case of a Joint Venture (JV), all members of the JV will be evaluated jointly for the purpose of short listing and shall be jointly and severally liable for the assignment and shall sign the contract in case of award is made to that JV group. Interested consultants should clearly indicate the structure of their “association” and the duties of the partners and sub consultants in their application. Unclear expression of interests in terms of “in association with” and/or “in affiliation with” and etc. may not be considered for short listing. Keeping one expression of interest per firm as principle, a consultant firm may decide whether it wishes to participate as a sub consultant or as an individual consultant or as a partner in a joint venture. Please note that a firm shall submit only one expression of interests in the same selection process either individually as a consultant or as a partner in a joint venture. No firm can be a sub consultant while submitting an expression of interests individually or as a partner of a joint venture in the same selection process. A firm, if acting in the capacity of sub consultant in any consultant or JV, may participate in more than one consultant, but only in the capacity of a sub consultant.
Interested Consultants should submit separate expressions of interest, identifying clearly the assignment in which they are interested to compete. Each of the three assignments referenced above shall be subject to a separate contract; therefore, 3 (three) different short lists for each of the assignments shall be established. Consultants who are interested in and would like to submit their Expression of Interest for more than one contract should confirm that they have sufficient financial and human resources to carry out more than one such contract as relevant, and that for each different contract the Consultants should provide in their proposals different individuals in the teams of key personnel.
A Consultant will be selected in accordance with the Consultants’ Qualifications Selection method set out in the Consultant Guidelines.
