To facilitate a comparative analysis of the bids, we request bidders to submit a proposal with three different components:

Statement of Work. Presenting a comparative matrix between what GGGI has listed as a requirement and what the IT consultant would be able to provide, will significantly facilitate the review and evaluation process.
  • Other concessions offered - This should consist of valued-added products and services that may not have been mentioned/required in the Terms of Reference, but the tenderer is offering to GGGI and will add value to its services. This is optional but will be given credit if proven to indeed add value to GGGI’s activities.
  • Competence of the IT personnel - This would require submission of the comprehensive Curriculum Vitae (CV) of the IT consultant to serve the GGGI. The CV should only highlight the relevant work experiences, training and skills and educational background and should not be more than 4 pages.
  • It is GGGI’s preference to deal with trusted experts, in which a relationship can be built between the GGGI team and the service provider.
