Tendering Process

Tendering for all opportunities will follow the stages below

Request for Information (RFI)

The purpose of the RFI is to provide an overview of the project with relevant details and requested information to collect data about the capabilities of interested training providers in order to conduct an initial screening prior to the bidding phase.

Review of Expression of interests

Expression of interests from training providers are reviewed to determine potential suitability based on the requested information from the RFI. Mainly, information on the current operations, international experience, specializations, accreditations, student and trainer numbers and statistics, etc. is used to determine potential training providers and the degree of relevance to the scope of the intended project.

Request for Proposal (RFP)

The RFP is a comprehensive document that covers details such as the scope, targets, expectations, timelines, and terms of the proposed project in addition to guidance on preparing the proposal. The RFP also captures the minimum requirements that training providers are expected to address while preparing their proposed business plans. The response to the RFP is usually split into two: a technical proposal and a commercial proposal.

Evaluation of Proposals

Proposals are evaluated based on predetermined criteria relevant to the project. Items that are evaluated include but are not limited to:
- Operations
- Capacity
- Experience
- Specializations/programs offered
- Qualifications of staff
- Governance
- Quality and accreditations
- Work plan and ability to execute the project
- Price

Contract Finalization

Contracts are awarded to the training providers after officially informing them of the outcome of the evaluation phase with a window for legal negotiations prior to signing the contract.

Transformation to operational Platform

After contracts with training providers are signed, the transition to the operational platform occurs as a COE team is allocated for each training provider to ensure the smooth running of operations and monitor contract compliance during the duration of the contract.
