

User Guide and Summary Description

PREFACE

These Standard Tender Documents and User’s Guide have been prepared by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) for the procurement of works through open tendering in compliance with the EBRD Procurement Policies and Rules for projects that are financed in whole or in part by the EBRD.

These Standard Tender Documents are derived from the Master Document for Procurement of Works prepared by the Multilateral Development Banks and International Financing Institutions. The procedures and practices presented in them reflect “best practices” by these institutions.

Clients or their procurement consultants should complete the documents by entering data specific to the procurement in question in the relevant sections; in some cases, this necessitates a selection from different alternatives presented in the documents. These alternatives are illustrative and not necessarily comprehensive. Other customised provisions may be required in certain cases.

When completing the documents, the Clients or their procurement consultants should further consider that as part of its commitment to sustainable development, the EBRD promotes the application of best practice regarding environmental and social matters as stipulated in the EBRD’s Environmental and Social Policy and its Performance Requirements. The requirements regarding environmental and social matters, including labour and working conditions, are further detailed in the legal documentation for specific projects and shall be reflected in the completed documents.

The following guidelines should be observed:

(a)Specific details, such as the “name of the Employer”, “address for tender submission” etc. should be entered where indicated.

(b)Boxed guidance notes and provisions in italics font contain instructions and guidance which the drafter should follow. They are not part of the text, and should not be included in the final document.

(c)When submitting tender documents to the Bank for review, clients should state whether these Standard Tender Documents & User’s Guide have been used. If so, the client should:

i.inform which contract form has been used i.e. the FIDIC-MDB Harmonised Edition of

the Conditions of Contract for Construction, March 2006, or the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction, 1st edition 1999;

ii.confirm that the Instructions to Tenderers and the General Conditions of Contract have been used without change;

iii.highlight any proposed changes to the following:

Letter of Tender

Form of Tender Security

Manufacturer’s Authorisation

Letter of Acceptance

Contract Agreement

Performance Security

Bank Guarantee for Advanced Payment;

Guidance Notes on using these documents, which appear at the beginning of each volume are for the use of the drafter and must not be included in the tender documents to be issued to potential tenderers.

These documents reflect the structure and provisions of the Master Document, except where specific considerations within the EBRD have required a change, and are comprised of the following parts and sections:

Where practical, the Invitation for Tenders shall also be published in a newspaper with wide circulation in the Employer’s country or in official gazettes or international trade publications, as appropriate. The notice should also be sent to potential contractors that have responded to the General Procurement Notice and to local representatives of potential foreign contractors e.g. commercial attaché of the embassies accredited in the Employer’s country.

[ project title ]

INVITATION FOR TENDERS

[ works to be procured ]

This Invitation for Tenders follows the General Procurement Notice for this project which was published on the EBRD website, Procurement Notices (www.ebrd.com) on [ state the date of publication ].

[ Name of Employer ], hereinafter referred to as “the Employer”, intends using part of the proceeds of a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (the Bank) towards the cost of [ insert name of the Project ].

The Employer now invites sealed tenders from contractors for the following contract[s] to be funded from part of the proceeds of the loan:

…. [ For each contract include a concise description of the works for each contract, as may be applicable. State size and principal quantities. Provide locations, estimated duration, and advise if any contracts are to be performed concurrently or otherwise separately. ]

Tenders are invited for one or more lots. Each lot must be priced separately. Tenders for more than one lot may offer discounts and such discounts will be considered in the comparison of tenders.

Delete the above if tendering process does not involve more than one contract / lot.

Only firms and joint ventures that have been pre-qualified for the proposed contract(s) are invited to submit a tender.

Where a prequalification process has been conducted prior to the tendering process, tendering shall be open only to pre-qualified tenderers.

Tendering for contracts to be financed with the proceeds of a loan from the Bank is open to firms from any country.

To be qualified for the award of a contract, tenderers must satisfy the following minimum criteria:

[Indicate any particular postqualification requirements, which should be the same criteria set out in the Instructions to Tenderers].

Where no prequalification process has been conducted prior to the tendering process, the Invitation for Tenders shall specify the minimum post-qualification criteria that shall be applied by the Employer.

Tender documents may be obtained from the office at the address below upon payment of a non-refundable fee of …[ state currency and value ] or equivalent in a convertible currency.

Only a nominal fee should be charged for the tender documents, solely to cover the costs of reproduction and of despatching the documents by courier.

[Give instructions for payment by bank transfer or the like and requirements for submitting Bank receipt of payment to the Employer ].

Upon receipt of appropriate evidence of payment of the non-refundable fee, the documents will promptly be dispatched by courier; however, no liability can be accepted for their loss or late delivery. In addition, if requested, the documents can be dispatched electronically after presentation by the prospective tenderer of an appropriate evidence of payment of the non- refundable fee. In the event of discrepancy between electronic and hard copies of the documents, the hard copy shall prevail.

All tenders must be accompanied by a tender security of …. [ state currency and amount

deemed appropriate by the Employer. This should be consistent with paragraph 19.1 of the Instructions to Tenderers (ITT) ] or its equivalent in a convertible currency.

Delete the above if no tender security is required.

and date of deadline for submission ], at which time they will be opened in the presence of those tenderers’ representatives who choose to attend.

The date for submission of tenders shall be not less than 45 days after the date of publication of the Invitation for Tenders or the availability of the tender documents, whichever is the latest. A period of 60 days is normal and preferable. A longer period would be appropriate for complex or large contracts and for tenders requiring a pre-tender meeting or site visit.

(a)“Deviation” is a departure from the requirements specified in the

Tender Document;

(b)“Reservation” is the setting of limiting conditions or withholding from complete acceptance of the requirements specified in the Tender Document; and

(c)“Omission” is the failure to submit part or all of the information or documentation required in the Tender Document.

28.3A material deviation, reservation, or omission is one that,

(a)if accepted, would:

(i)affect in any substantial way the scope, quality, or performance of the Requirements as specified in Section VI; or

(ii)limit in any substantial way, inconsistent with the Tender

Document, the Employer’s rights or the tenderer’s obligations under the proposed Contract; or

(b)if rectified, would unfairly affect the competitive position of other tenderers presenting substantially responsive Tenders.

28.4The Employer shall examine the technical aspects of the Tender in particular, to confirm that all requirements of Section VI have been met without any material deviation, reservation, or omission.

28.5If a Tender is not substantially responsive to the requirements of the Tender Document, it shall be rejected by the Employer and may not subsequently be made responsive by correction of the material deviation, reservation, or omission.

31.1For the evaluation and comparison purposes the Employer shall adjust the Tender prices using the criteria and methodology specified in Section III. Evaluation and Qualification Criteria.

31.2If in the opinion of the Employer the Tender which results in the lowest Evaluated Tender Price, is seriously unbalanced or front loaded or substantially below the Employer’s estimates, the Employer may require the tenderer to produce detailed price analyses for any or all items of the Bill of Quantities, to demonstrate the internal consistency of those prices with the methods and schedule proposed. After evaluation of the price analyses, taking into consideration the schedule of estimated Contract payments, the Employer may require that the amount of the performance security be increased at the expense of the tenderer to a level sufficient to protect the Employer against financial loss in the event of default of the successful tenderer under the Contract.

32.1The Employer shall determine to its satisfaction whether the tenderer that is selected as having submitted the lowest evaluated and substantially responsive Tender meets the qualifying criteria specified in Section III, Evaluation and Qualification Criteria.

32.2The determination shall be based upon an examination of the documentary evidence of the tenderer’s qualifications submitted by the tenderer, pursuant to ITT 16.

32.3An affirmative determination shall be a prerequisite for award of the Contract to the tenderer. A negative determination shall result in disqualification of the Tender, in which event the Employer shall proceed to the next lowest evaluated Tender to make a similar determination of that tenderer’s qualifications to perform satisfactorily.

32.4The capabilities of the manufacturers and subcontractors proposed in its Tender to be used by the lowest evaluated tenderer for identified major items of the Requirements will also be evaluated for acceptability in accordance with the criteria and methodologies defined in Section III, Evaluation and Qualification Criteria. Their participation should be confirmed with a letter of intent between the parties, as needed. Should a manufacturer or subcontractor be determined to be unacceptable, the Tender will not be rejected, but the tenderer will be required to substitute an acceptable manufacturer or subcontractor without any change to the Tender price.

33.1The Employer reserves the right to accept or reject any tender, and to annul the Tendering process and reject all Tenders at any time prior to contract award, without thereby incurring any liability to tenderers. In case of annulment, all Tenders submitted and specifically, Tender securities, shall be promptly returned to the

If the performance security furnished by the successful tenderer is in the form of a bond, it shall be issued by a bonding or insurance company that has been determined by the successful tenderer to be acceptable to the Employer. A foreign institution providing a bond shall have a correspondent financial institution located in the

Employer’s Country.

37.2Failure of the successful tenderer to submit the above-mentioned Performance Security or sign the Contract shall constitute sufficient grounds for the annulment of the award and forfeiture of the tender security. In that event the Employer may award the Contract to the next lowest evaluated tenderer whose offer is substantially responsive and is determined by the Employer to be qualified to

C.Preparation of Tenders

10.Language of Tender

10.1

In case of sovereign operations the tender documents, including all published procurement notices, shall be prepared in one of the Bank’s working languages.

“Sovereign operations” are Bank-financed public sector operations which are extended to, or guaranteed by, a recipient member country of the Bank. In the interest of open competition as well as economy and efficiency, the Bank requires that the

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

18

tender documents also be prepared in the English language, which shall be specified in the tender documents as the governing language. In addition, further sets of the tender documentation may be prepared in the local language, in order to assist local firms in tendering.

In the case of sub-Sovereign operations, the tender documentation, including all published procurement notices, can be prepared in the local language or other commercially accepted language, which can also be specified in the tender documents as the governing language.

“Sub-Sovereign operations” are Bank-financed public sector operations other than those extended to, or guaranteed by, a recipient member country of the Bank. All procurement and contract documentation shall also be prepared and issued in the English language. The Bank will determine on the basis of such English language documentation whether procurement has been carried out in accordance with the agreed procedures.

The language of the tender is: [insert language]

11.Documents Comprising the Tender

11.1

(a)

(b)

(h)

The Tender shall comprise the following:

Letter of Tender and Appendix to Tender;

Completed Schedule of Prices / Bill of Quantities as provided in Section IV, Tender Forms

Employers often require tenderers to submit supplementary information, which would normally be used to assess the Tenderer’s understanding of the complexity of the Works and ultimately the Tenderer’s capability to perform the Contract satisfactorily. Such supplementary information may include:

-description of the construction arrangements and method statements;

-equipment and personnel which the tenderer proposes to adopt for the execution of the Works;

-proposed subcontractors;

-other information

If the supplementary information forms part of the Tender then a possibility arises that any inability of the Tenderer to execute the Works in accordance with the information provided therein e.g. method statement, equipment, etc, could give rise to a claim by the Tenderer for a variation. Employers may therefore wish to clarify their intention and the status of the supplementary information in the relation to the Tender and state that if the information shall merely accompany, the Tenderer’s Tender or otherwise form part thereof.

EXAMPLE:

Completed Schedule of Supplementary Information.

Schedule of Supplementary Information shall accompany, but not form part, of the Tender and is required to be submitted in sufficient detail to demonstrate the Tenderer’s capability to perform the Contract. Schedule of Supplementary Information shall be submitted using the forms provided in Section IV, Tender Forms, and include the following information:

a)Attachment 1 - Preliminary Programme

i)Site organisation and Method statement;

ii)Mobilisation and Construction Schedules;

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

19

iii)Contractor’s Equipment; and

iv)Contractor’s Personnel.

b)Attachment 2 - Financial Information

i)Financial Resources; and

ii)Name and address of the bank, which will provide the Performance and Advance Payment Securities.

c)Attachment 3 - Other Information

i)List of Proposed Subcontractors;

ii)Current commitments/works in progress; and

iii)Name (s) and address (s) the insurer (s) and its/their principal terms for the insurances required under the Contract.

13.Alternative Tenders

13.1Alternative Tenders [insert “shall” or “shall not”] be permitted.

13.2

In the event that alternative times for completion are permitted, the Employer shall specify the method for evaluating different times for completion in Section III, Evaluation and Qualification criteria.

13.3

13.4

Alternative times for completion [insert “are” or “are not”] permitted.

If alternative times for completion are permitted, the evaluation method will be as specified in Section III, Evaluation and Qualification Criteria.

Where the Employer intends to permit alternative tenders and, in particular, technical/design alternatives, the Employer shall take into account the implications associated with the approval of the alternative design in accordance with the law governing the Contract. There is therefore a risk that the construction permit for the alternative design can either be denied or delayed by the local authorities and thereby frustrate the execution of the contract if it is awarded based on the alternative design and may lead to substantial time and cost overruns .

In addition to the information listed in ITT 13.3, the Tenderer must also provide its estimated time schedule that would demonstrate the Tenderer’s ability to complete the Works within the Time for Completion, taking into account the time that may be required to obtain the necessary approvals of the Alternative Technical solutions in accordance with the law governing the contract.

If the Employer permits the Contractor to design any part of the Permanent Works, the Employer must ensure that the Contract provides an appropriate statement to this effect and specifies the following:

the parts of the Permanent Works that may be designed by the Contractor;

the Employer’s requirements applicable to the Permanent Works that may be designed by the Contractor; and

the procedures relating to the approval of the Contractor’s design by the

Employer, including:

-permissions, if any, to be obtained by the Employer;

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

20

-the documents to be submitted by the Contractor to the Engineer for approval, as may be required by the Employer in accordance with the law governing the Contract; and

-Third parties, if any, to be involved in the design approval and the relevant responsibilities of the parties to the contract

Alternative technical solutions shall be permitted for the following parts of the Works: [ specify parts of the Works]

If alternative technical solutions are permitted, the evaluation method will be as specified in Section III, Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

14.Tender Prices and Discounts

14.2&

14.5

Price adjustment is mandatory for contracts which provide for time of completion exceeding 18 months. It would be difficult, if not impossible, for any experienced contractor to foresee the price escalation and/or undertake appropriate measures to hedge the risk associated therewith during a period in excess of 18 months. Thus, absence of price escalation arrangements for contracts with the time of completion in excess of 18 months may result in the receipt of “gambling” prices from the Tenderers. This may either result in uncompetitive tender prices, which would be inclusive of substantial contingencies and/or claims for compensation after the contract award in the event if the Tenderer’s rates transpire to be insufficient for the execution of the Works.

The prices quoted by the Tenderer shall be: [insert “subject to adjustment during the performance of the Contract in accordance with the provisions of the Conditions of Contract.” or “fixed during the performance of the Contract”]

15.Currencies of Tender

Option A - The currency of the Tender and the currency for payment shall be a single currency

15.1EXAMPLE for Option A:

The prices shall be quoted by the Tenderer entirely in [specify the currency of the tender]. All payments under the Contract shall be made in the currency of the Tender.

15.2If the Contract Price is subject to adjustment during the performance of the Contract, in cases where the currency index stated in the Appendix to Tender is not relevant to the currency in which the Contract Price is payable, each index shall be converted into to relevant currency of payment in accordance with the Contract

Option B - The currency of the Tender shall be the local currency and payments are to be made in more than one currency

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

21

 

 

 

 

 

15.1EXAMPLE for Option B:

The prices shall be quoted by the Tenderer entirely in the Local Currency.

A Tenderer expecting to incur expenditures in other currency for inputs to the Works, supplied from outside the Employer’s country (referred to as “the Foreign currency requirement”) shall indicate its expected Foreign currency requirements (excluding provisional sums) in the Appendix to Tender in the manner and detail indicated therein.

The Foreign currency requirements can be quoted in [ specify the currency or currencies in which the Foreign currency requirements can be quoted by the Tenderer ]

15.2The rates of exchange to be used by the Tenderer in arriving at the local currency equivalent and the percentage(s) mentioned in ITT 15.1 above shall be the selling rates for similar transactions established by the central Bank of Employer’s country prevailing on the date twenty-eight (28) days prior to the deadline for submission of tenders. These rates shall be listed by the Tenderer in the Appendix to Tender and shall apply for calculating the payments of the successful Tenderer’s Foreign currency requirements under the Contract. If the

Tenderer uses other rates of exchange, the provision of ITT 30 shall apply for the purpose of the tenders’ evaluation. However, payments under the Contract will be computed, using the rates of exchange quoted in the tender.

15.3A Tenderer may be required by the Employer to clarify its Foreign and Local currency requirements and to substantiate that the amounts included in the prices, and shown in the Appendix to Tender, are reasonable and responsive to ITT 15.1, in which case a detailed breakdown of its foreign currency requirements shall be provided by the Tenderer.

15.4If the Contract Price is subject to adjustment during the performance of the Contract, in cases where the currency index stated in the Appendix to Tender is not relevant to the currency or currencies in which the Contract Price is payable, each index shall be converted into to relevant currency of payment in accordance with the Contract.

16.Documents Establishing the Qualifications of the Tenderer

16.2EXAMPLE:

Manufacturer’s Authorisation shall be required for the following items: [specify

the items of plant and equipment for which the Employer requires Manufacturer’s Authorisation form]

16.4EXAMPLE:

Tenderers shall not be permitted to claim the experience and capability of their parent companies for the purposes of meeting the minimum qualification requirements.

The Employer shall consider the experience and qualification of the Tenderers only on their sole merits.

In the event if the Employer intends to permit Tenderers to claim the experience and capability of their parent companies for the purposes of meeting the qualification criteria, a clear statement to this effect must be made in the tender documents. The tender documents shall also specify the minimum requirements for acceptance of the

Tenderers’ parent company guarantee by the Employer. The main purpose of such parent company guarantee would be to ensure that the contract will be performed satisfactorily i.e. the contractor’s parent company will provide the necessary resources and is fully committed, along with its subsidiary, to ensuring such performance.

16.4EXAMPLE:

If a Tenderer wishes to claim the experience and capability of its parent company for the purposes of meeting the minimum qualification requirements, the Tenderer shall submit with

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

22

its tender an irrevocable guarantee from its parent company. The format of the parent company guarantee shall be approved by the Employer prior to tender submission and shall specify, as minimum:

the names of the parties to the parent company guarantee including the name of the Employer, the Tenderer and its guarantor;

the name of the Contract relating to which the guarantee is provided;

the validity of the guarantee, which shall be consistent with the time for completion or delivery required under the Contract;

the law governing the guarantee, which shall be the same as the law governing the Contract; and

the cumulative limit of liability of the Guarantor under the guarantee which shall not be less than the limit of liability of the Tenderer under the Contract

Failure to furnish suitable parent company guarantee may result in the rejection of the tender.

18.Period of Validity of Tenders

18.1

Insert the number of days deemed appropriate by the Employer. The period should be sufficient to permit completion of evaluation and comparison of tenders, review of the evaluation report by the Bank (if so required), obtaining of all necessary approvals, and notification of the award. Normally, the validity period should be 90 days. For major and complex contracts, the validity period should be longer. A realistic period should be specified in order to avoid the need for extensions.

The Tender validity period shall be [insert the number of days deemed appropriate] days.

19.Tender Security

19.1

19.7

Insert the amount deemed appropriate by the Employer. The amount shall be expressed as a fixed amount. Tender security will be normally in the range of 2-5 per cent of the estimated cost of the Works.

A tender security [insert “is” or “is not”] required.

If a tender security is required, the amount and currency of the tender security shall be [insert amount and currency].

JVCA Tenderers for works contracts are seldom long term, established corporate entities with the existing bank accounts and credit history. JVCA Tenderers are often formed for the purposes of the execution of the particular contract and may experience difficulties in raising a conforming tender security in the name of the JVCA within the deadline for tenders submission, especially, in the instances, where no prequalification has been carried out prior to the invitation for tenders. The Employer may therefore consider permitting JVCA Tenderers to submit the tender security by a partner of the JVCA on condition the tender security would be issued for and on behalf of the entire JVCA.

EXAMPLE:

The tender security of a JVCA can be in the name of a partner of the JVCA on condition that the tender security clearly specifies the names of all partners of the JVCA and states that the

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

23

Security is submitted for and on behalf of the JVCA.

Failure to furnish a conforming tender security required by the Tender Document shall result in the rejection of the Tender.

20.Format and Signing of Tender

20.1In addition to the original of the Tender, the number of copies is: [insert number of copies required].

20.2The written confirmation of authorisation to sign the Tenderer shall consist of: Power of Attorney, duly authorised by a Notary Public, indicating that the person(s) signing the tender have the authority to sign the tender and the tender is thus binding upon the Tenderer

21.Submission, Sealing and Marking of Tenders

21.1

Employers wishing to use any electronic tendering application shall obtain preliminary no objection from the Bank. The Employer shall afford sufficient time to enable the Bank to arrange for an appropriate independent audit of the relevant software application. The wording of the above paragraphs shall be agreed with the Bank on a case by case basis pending on the outcome of the Bank’s audit.

Tenderers shall not have the option of submitting their tenders electronically.

D. Submission and Opening of Tenders

22.Deadline for Submission of Tenders

22.1For Tender submission purposes only, the Employer’s address is :

Attention: [insert full name of person, if applicable]

They are not part of the text, and should not be included in the final tender document. All reference numbers provided in this Section shall be construed as reference numbers in Section I, Instruction to Tenderers. Provisions entitled “EXAMPLE” in this Section are optional and may be included in the final tender document at the Employer’s discretion.

This Section contains all the criteria that the Employer shall use to evaluate Tenders and qualify Tenderers. In accordance with ITT 29.1 and ITT 32.1, no other factors, methods or criteria shall be used. The Tenderer shall provide all the information requested in the forms included in Section IV, Tender Forms.

Evaluation Criteria and Methodology

13Alternative Tenders

13.1Alternative Technical Proposals

If the Employer permits the Contractor to design any part of the Permanent Works, the Employer shall take note of the square boxed recommendations and guidance provided in the TDS with reference to ITT 13.4.

There are two options the Employer may apply to consider alternative tenders design proposals:

a)each on its own merits; or

b)only for the Tenderer determined as having submitted the lowest evaluated substantially responsive tender.

The following to be used when technical alternatives are accepted, when option

(b) is applied.

EXAMPLE:

Tenderers wishing to offer technical alternatives to the technical requirements of the tender documents must first price the Employer’s Requirements as provided in Part 2, Section VI, of the tender documents and shall further provide all information necessary for a complete evaluation of the alternative by the Employer, including, as appropriate, drawings, design calculations, Technical Specifications, breakdown of prices, and other relevant details. Only the technical alternatives, if any, of the lowest evaluated responsive Tenderer shall be considered by the Employer.

The following to be used when technical alternatives are accepted, when option (a) is applied.

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

26

EXAMPLE:

Tenderers wishing to offer technical alternatives to the requirements of the tender documents must first price the Employer’s Requirements as provided in Part 2, Section VI, of the tender documents and shall further provide all information necessary for a complete evaluation of the alternative by the Employer, including, as appropriate, drawings, design calculations, Technical Specifications, breakdown of prices, and other relevant details. Technical alternatives which comply with the Employer’s requirements for parts of the Works permitted by the Employer to be designed by the Contractor shall be considered by the Employer on their own merits.

13.2Alternative Time for Completion

EXAMPLE:

Alternative Time for Completion [insert “shall” or “shall not”] be permitted.

Evaluation methodology and criteria for Alternative Times for Completion shall be specified with reference to ITT 31.1

The following to be used when alternative Times for Completion are not permitted.

EXAMPLE:

The Employer requires the Works covered under these tender documents to be completed within the Time for Completion specified in the Contract. Tenderers offering completion beyond this time will be rejected as non-responsive. Equally, no benefits will be given for early completion.

The following to be used when alternative Times for Completion are permitted.

The “adjustment” rate for the evaluation of earlier or later completion of the works shall be the same or less than the rate of delay damages for later completion of the works specified under Sub-clause 8.7 of the Contract. The adjustment would normally be limited up to a maximum of 10 per cent of the

Tenderer’s tender. The adjustment can be either a percentage of the tender price or a fixed amount, denominated in the currency used for the comparison of tenders.

EXAMPLE:

The Employer requires the Works covered under these tender documents to be completed within the Time for Completion specified in the Contract. An “adjustment” will be calculated for each Tenderer offering completion of the Works beyond the Time for Completion (base) stated in the Contract at (__) per cent of the Tenderer’s price for the Works, exclusive of the Provisional Sums, for each week of delay beyond the base and such adjustment will be added to the Tenderer’s Tender price for the evaluation purposes up to a maximum of (___) per cent of the Tenderer’s tender. No credit will be given for early completion.

14.Discounts

The Employer will adjust the Tender Price, using the methodology prescribed by the Tenderer in its Letter of Tender. Only those discounts will be taken into account for the tender evaluation purposes that are read out during the Tenders Opening in

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

27

accordance with ITT Para 25.3.

In the event of any ambiguity in the Tenderer’s methodology, the benefit of the doubt shall be given to the Employer. If a Tenderer does not accept the Employer’s determination, its tender shall be declared non-responsive and its tender security shall be forfeited.

28.Determination of Responsiveness

28.7Nonmaterial Deviations

Nonmaterial deviations (commercial and technical) in the tender will not constitute cause for rejection but shall be reflected in the evaluation wherever practicable and appropriate. The cost of all nonmaterial quantifiable deviations will be added or deducted to or from the tender price as may be appropriate. A reasonable estimate of the cost will be made by the Employer, taking into consideration the corresponding quotations of other responsive Tenderers or other appropriate market prices. Such costs will be at the Employer’s sole discretion. A Tenderer will not be requested or permitted to offer a price adjustment for rectifying such nonmaterial deviations.

Deviations and other factors that are in excess of the requirements of the tender documents or otherwise result in unsolicited benefits for the Employer shall not be taken into account in tender evaluation.

29.Correction of Mathematical Errors

29.2Correction of Mathematical Errors

(a)Where there are errors between the total of the amounts given under the column for the price breakdown and the amount given under the Total Price, the former shall prevail and the latter will be corrected accordingly

(b)If there is a discrepancy between the unit price and the total price that is obtained by multiplying the unit price and quantity, the unit price shall prevail and the total price shall be corrected, unless in the opinion of the Employer there is an obvious misplacement of the decimal point in the unit price, in which case the total price as quoted shall govern and the unit price shall be corrected;

(c)If there is an error in a total corresponding to the addition or subtraction of subtotals, the subtotals shall prevail and the total shall be corrected; and

(d)If there is a discrepancy between words and figures, the amount in words shall prevail, unless the amount expressed in words is related to an arithmetic error, in which case the amount in figures shall prevail subject to (a) and (b) above.

30.Conversion to a Single Currency

30.1Conversion to a Single Currency

Tenders will be evaluated as quoted in the currency of the tender specified in ITT 15.1.

If tenders are permitted to indicate their Foreign currency requirements and if a Tenderer has used different exchange rates from those prescribed in ITT 15.2, for the purposes of the tender evaluation, the tender will be first converted into the amounts payable in different currencies, using the rates quoted in the tender, and then reconverted to the currency of the tender using the exchange rates prescribed in ITT

Part 1 - Section III Evaluation and Qualification Criteria

28

15.2.

31.Tender Adjustments

31.1The adjustment shall be made using the following methodology:

EXAMPLE :

The adjustment shall be made using the following methodology:

In evaluating the tenders, the Employer will determine for each tender the evaluated tender price by adjusting the tender price as follows:

(a)making any correction for errors pursuant to ITT Para 29.2 and Section III. Evaluation and Qualification Criteria Clause 30.2

(b)excluding provisional sums and the provision, if any, for contingencies in the Price Schedules, but including Dayworks, where priced competitively;

(c)making appropriate adjustments to reflect discounts or other price modifications offered in accordance with ITT Para 14; and

(d)making an appropriate adjustment for any other acceptable variations, deviations in accordance with ITT 28.7 and Section III. Evaluation and Qualification Criteria Clause 28.7

32.Qualification of the Tenderer

32.1Post-qualification

34.

34.1

Insert additional provision:

The Employer will determine to its satisfaction whether the Tenderer selected as having submitted the lowest evaluated responsive tender meets the qualifying criteria specified herein and on the basis of the Letter of Tender and any supplementary information submitted has demonstrated that it is capable of performing the contract satisfactorily.

Award Criteria

This provision is to be used where tenders are invited for a number of contracts/lots and Tenderers have been invited to offer discounts for the award of more than one contract.

Subject to ITT 33, the Employer will award the contract(s) to the Tenderer(s) whose tender(s) has been determined to be substantially responsive and the combination of these tender prices which, including any discounts offered, yield the lowest total evaluated price, provided further that the Tenderers are determined to be qualified to perform the contract satisfactorily.

The contract award will be to a single Tenderer if its tender offers the lowest total evaluated price and the Tenderer is determined to be qualified to perform the Contract satisfactorily.

The Tenderer shall complete Attachment 2, Financial Information, provided in Section IV, Tender Forms, and demonstrate that it has access to, or has available, liquid assets, unencumbered real assets, lines of credit, and other financial means sufficient to meet the construction cash flow for the contract for a period of 4 (four) months, estimated as not less than EURO [specify amount] *equivalent, taking into account the applicant's commitments for other contracts.

*The Employer should calculate an estimated amount cash flow requirements based on a number of months, which shall be determined taking into account the total time needed by the Employer to pay a contractor's invoice, allowing for (a) the time of construction, from the beginning of the month invoiced; (b) the time needed by the engineer to issue the monthly certificate; (c) the time needed by the Employer to pay the certified amount, and (d) a contingency period of one to two months to allow for unforeseen delays. (One month contingency is adequate when the total of (a) + (b) + (c) is three months or less). The assessment should be based on a straight-line projection of the estimated cash flow requirement, neglecting the effect of any advance payments and retention monies.

Table 2.4

Experience

2.4.1Experience

The Tenderer shall demonstrate that it has successful experience as prime contractor in the execution of at least three projects of a nature and complexity comparable to the proposed contract within the last [specify number of years] *years; in addition, the following specific experience: [specify required experience] **

* This period is normally five years, but may be less providing that special circumstances warrant it.

** Indicate an annual production rate for the key construction activity (or

activities) in the proposed contract e.g., “one million m3 of rock placed in rockfill dams in one year”. The annual rate should be a percentage (say 80 percent) of the expected peak rate of construction for the key activity (or activities) in the contract or works.

Schedules of Prices / Bill of Quantities

These notes for preparing a Bill of Quantities are intended only as information for the Employer or the person drafting the tender documents. They should not be included in the final documents.

Objectives

The objectives of the Bill of Quantities are:

(a)to provide sufficient information on the quantities of works to be performed to enable tenders to be prepared efficiently and accurately; and

(b)when a contract has been entered into, to provide a priced Bill of Quantities for use in the periodic valuation of works executed.

In order to attain these objectives, works should be itemised in the Bill of Quantities in sufficient detail to distinguish between the different classes of works, or between works of the same nature carried out in different locations or in other circumstances which may give rise to different considerations of cost. Consistent with these requirements, the layout and content of the Bill of Quantities should be as simple and brief as possible.

Content

The Bill of Quantities should normally be divided into the following sections:

(a)Preamble;

(b)Work Items (grouped into parts);

(c)Daywork Schedule (if necessary);

(d)Provisional Quantities and Sums; and

(d)Summary

Preamble

The preamble should indicate the inclusiveness of the unit prices and should state the methods of measurement which have been adopted in the preparation of the Bill of Quantities and which are to be used for the measurement of any part of the works.

Many national standard reference guides have been prepared on the subject. One such guide is the Standard Method of Measurement of the UK Institution of Civil Engineers.

Rock

Where excavation, boring, or driving is included in the works, a comprehensive definition of rock (often a contentious topic in contract administration), if not given the Technical Specification, should be given in the preamble, and this definition should be used for the purposes of measurement and payment.

Work items

The items in the Bill of Quantities should be grouped into sections to distinguish between those parts of the works which by nature, location, access, timing, or any other special characteristics may give rise to different methods of construction, or phasing of the works, or considerations of cost. General items common to all parts of the works may be grouped as a separate section in the Bill of Quantities. When a family of price adjustment formulae are used, they should relate to appropriate sections in the Bill of Quantities.

Part 1 - Section IV: Tender Forms

48

 

 

Pricing

The pricing of the Bill of Quantities must be consistent with the pricing and currency provisions in the rest of the document (e.g. Instructions to Tenderers, Tender Data, and Conditions of Contract). There are two common methods of setting up a Bill of Quantities. In the first, rates and prices are entered in the common currency of the tender (specified in the Tender Data) only, with tenderers stating separately their proportionate requirements for local and foreign currencies. In the second method, rates and prices are broken down for each item into local and foreign currency components. The first method is administratively more convenient and is more commonly used in works contracts.

Quantities

Quantities should be computed net from the drawings, unless directed otherwise in the contract, and no allowance should be made for bulking, shrinkage, or waste. Quantities should be rounded up or down where appropriate and spurious accuracy should be avoided.

Units of measurement

The metric system is recommended for use, unless other national units are mandatory in the country of the Employer.

Ground and excavation levels

The commencing surface should be identified in the description of each item for work involving excavation, boring, or driving, for which the commencing surface is not also the original surface. The excavated surface should be identified in the description of each item for work involving excavation for which the excavated surface is not also the final surface. The depths of work should be measured from the commencing surface to the excavated surface, as defined.

Daywork Schedule

A Daywork Schedule should be included if the probability of unforeseen work, outside the items included in the Bill of Quantities, is relatively high. To facilitate checking by the Employer of the realism of rates quoted by the tenderers, the Daywork Schedule should normally comprise:

(a)a list of the various classes of labour, materials, and construction plant for which basic daywork rates or prices are to be inserted by the tenderer, together with a statement of the conditions under which the contractor will be paid for work executed on a daywork basis; and

(b)a percentage to be entered by the tenderer against each basic daywork subtotal amount for labour, materials, and plant representing the contractor’s profit, overheads, supervision, and other charges.

A “Daywork Schedule” is commonly found in Contracts where the likely incidence of unforeseen work cannot be covered by definitive descriptions and approximate quantities in the Bill of Quantities. The preferred alternative is to value the additional work in accordance with the Conditions of Contract. A Daywork Schedule normally has the disadvantage of not being competitive among tenderers, who may therefore load the rates assigned to some or all the items. If a Daywork Schedule is to be included at all in the tender documents, it is preferable to include nominal quantities against the items most likely to be used, and to carry the sum of the extended amounts forward into the Tender Summary in order to make the basic Schedule of Daywork Rates competitive.

The total amount assigned to such competitive Daywork is normally three to five (35) per cent of the estimated base Contract Price, and is regarded as a Provisional Sum for contingencies to be expended under the direction and at the discretion of the Engineer. A

Part 1 - Section IV: Tender Forms

49

 

 

limitation on quantity should not apply, and the unit rate quoted should be invariable whatever quantities of work are ordered.

Provisional Quantities and Sums

Provision for quantity contingencies in any particular item or class of work with a high expectation of quantity overrun should be made by entering specific “Provisional Quantities” or “Provisional Items” in the Bill of Quantities for the item or class of work in question, and not by increasing the quantities for that item or class of work beyond those of the work normally expected to be required. To the extent not covered above, a general provision for physical contingencies (quantity overruns) can be made by including a “Provisional Sum” in the Summary of the Bill of Quantities. Similarly, a contingency allowance for possible price increases should be provided as a “Provisional Sum” in the Summary of the Bill of Quantities. The amount assigned to such Provisional Sums should be based on a realistic estimate of the likely increases. The use of these Provisional Sums should be monitored very closely, and where the total value of such Provisional Sums exceeds fifteen (15) per cent of the estimated base Contract Price, an audit of these Sums should be carried out when an amount representing fifteen (15) per cent of the base Contract has been expended under Provisional Sums.

The estimated cost of specialised work to be carried out, or of special goods to be supplied, by a nominated subcontractor (reference Clause 59 or Part I) should be indicated in the relevant part of the Bill of Quantities as a particular Provisional Sum with an appropriate brief description. A separate tender procedure is normally carried out by the Employer to select the specialists, who are then nominated as subcontractors to the main or prime contractor. To provide an element of competition among the main tenderers (or prime contractors) in respect of any facilities, amenities, attendance, etc., to be provided by the successful tenderer as prime contractor for use and convenience of the specialist or nominated subcontractor, each related Provisional Sum should be followed by an item in the Bill of Quantities inviting a percentage (to be quoted by the main tenderer) payable on the actual expenditure of the Provisional Sum.

Summary

The Summary should contain a tabulation of the separate parts of the Bill of Quantities carried forward, with Provisional Sums for daywork, for physical (quantity) contingencies, and for price contingencies (upward price adjustment) where applicable.

Section V: Eligible Countries

The Bank permits firms and individuals from all countries to offer goods, works and services for Bank-financed projects regardless of whether the country is a member of the Bank.

Consistent with international law, the proceeds of the Bank’s loans, equity investment or guarantees shall not be used for payment to persons or entities or for any import of goods, if such payment or import is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations. Persons or entities, or suppliers offering goods and services, covered by such prohibition shall therefore not be eligible for the award of Bank- financed contracts.

Specification

Notes for preparing specifications

These notes for preparing specifications are intended only as information for the Employer or the person drafting the tender documents. They should not be included in the final documents.

Precise and clear specifications are a prerequisite for tenderers to respond realistically and competitively to the requirements of the Employer without qualifying or conditioning their tenders. In the context of open tendering, the specifications must be drafted to permit the widest possible competition and, at the same time, present a clear statement of the required standards of materials, plant, other supplies, and workmanship to be provided. Only if this is done will the objectives of economy, efficiency, and equality in procurement be realised, responsiveness of tenders be ensured, and the subsequent task of tender evaluation facilitated. The specifications should require that all materials, plant, and other supplies to be incorporated in the works are new, unused, of the most recent or current models, and incorporate all recent improvements in design and materials unless provided otherwise in the contract. The specifications should set out any specific requirements for the works as set out in legal permits or legal documentation with the EBRD, where the Employer’s compliance with applicable laws and/or legal agreements with the EBRD are dependent upon the performance of third parties and , in particular, the Contractor and its sub-contractors. Such specific requirements include, but are not limited to, environmental and social management and mitigation provisions directly associated with the works as set out in the EBRD Performance Requirements as well as in the Environmental and Social Action Plan agreed between the Employer and the EBRD as part of the legal agreements. A clause setting out the scope of the works is often included at the beginning of the specifications, and it is customary to give a list of the drawings. Where the contractor is responsible for the design of any part of the permanent works, the extent of his obligations must be stated.

Samples of specifications from previous similar projects in the same country are useful in this respect. The use of metric units is encouraged by the Bank. Most specifications are normally written specially by the Employer or Engineer to suit the contract works in hand. There are no standard specifications for universal application in all sectors in all countries, but there are established principles and practices which are reflected in these documents.

There are considerable advantages in standardising general specifications for repetitive works in recognised public sectors, such as highways, ports, railways, buildings, irrigation, and water supply, in the same country or region where similar conditions prevail. The general specifications should cover all classes of workmanship, materials, and equipment commonly involved in construction, although not necessarily to be used in a particular works contract. Deletions or addenda should then adapt the General Specifications to the particular works.

Care must be taken in drafting specifications to ensure that they are not restrictive. In the specification of standards for materials, plant, other supplies, and workmanship, recognised international standards should be used as much as possible. Where other particular standards are used, whether national standards of the Employer’s country or other standards, the specifications should state that materials, plant, other supplies, and workmanship meeting other authoritative standards, and which ensure substantially equal performance to the standards mentioned, will also be acceptable. The following clause may be inserted in the Conditions of Particular Application or the specifications.

Sample clause: Equivalency of standards and codes

Wherever reference is made in the contract to specific standards and codes to be met by the materials, plant, and other supplies to be furnished, and work performed or tested, the provisions of the latest current edition or revision of the relevant standards and codes in

Part 2 – Section VI. Requirements.

86

 

 

 

effect shall apply, unless otherwise expressly stated in these documents. Where such standards and codes are national, or relate to a particular country or region, other authoritative standards which ensure a substantially equal or higher performance than the standards and codes specified will be accepted subject to the Engineer’s prior review and written approval. Differences between the standards specified and the proposed alternative standards must be fully described in writing by the contractor and submitted to the Engineer at least twenty-eight (28) days prior to the date when the contractor desires the Engineer’s approval. In the event the engineer determines that such proposed deviations do not ensure substantially equal performance, the contractor shall comply with the standards specified in the documents.

Alternative technical proposals

The Employer should decide whether technical solutions to specified parts of the works are to be permitted. Alternatives are appropriate in cases where obvious (and potentially less costly) alternatives are possible to the technical solutions indicated in the tender documents for certain elements of the works, taking into consideration the comparative specialised advantage of potential tenderers. For example:

pile foundations (proprietary methods and different material)

bridge foundations (open well, caissons, piles, etc.)

columns, beams, decking (reinforced concrete, prestressed concrete, steel, etc.)

proprietary methods for post-tensioning concrete

lining of canals

pipeline materials, coating, jointing

road surfacing (asphalt, concrete, etc.)

transmission tower design and erection

street lighting

offshore foundations

offshore trestle spans.

The Employer should provide a description of the selected parts of the works with appropriate references to drawings, specifications, Bill of Quantities, and design or performance criteria, stating that the alternative solutions shall be at least structurally and functionally equivalent to the basic design parameters and specifications.

Such alternative solutions shall be accompanied by all information necessary for a complete evaluation by the Employer, including drawings, design calculations, technical specifications, breakdown of prices, proposed construction methodology, and other relevant details. Technical alternatives permitted in this manner shall be considered by the Employer each on its own merits and independently of whether the tenderer has priced the item as described in the Employer’s design included with the tender documents.

In more complex cases, a “turnkey” or “design-and-construct” approach may be more appropriate, in which case a two-stage tender process is recommended in conformity with other Bank standard tender documents.

Part 2 – Section VI. Requirements.

Drawings

These notes for preparing drawings are intended only as information for the Employer or the persons preparing the tender documents. They should not be included in the final document.

It is customary to bind the drawings in a separate volume, which is often larger than the other volumes of documents. The size will be dictated by the scale of the drawings, which must not be reduced to the extent that details are rendered illegible.

A simplified map showing the location of the Site in relation to the local geography, including major roads, posts, airports, and railroads, is helpful.

The construction drawings, even if not fully developed, must show sufficient details to enable tenderers to understand the type and complexity of the work involved, and to price the Bill of Quantities.

Part 2 – Section VI. Requirements.

88

 

 

 

Supplementary Information

This section shall be drafted in conjunction with ITT 11.1 (h). Employer must clearly specify the information that shall form part of the tender and will eventually become contractual documents and the information that shall accompany, but not form part, of the tenderer’s tender. Employers should consult relevant notes and example provisions provided in the Tender Data Sheet.

Guidance for Section VII: General Conditions of Contract (GCC)

These Standard Tender Documents have been designed for use with:

THE FIDIC CONDITIONS OF CONTRACT FOR CONSTRUCTION

FOR BUILDING AND ENGINEERING WORKS DESIGNED BY THE EMPLOYER

1st edition 1999

The “FIDIC” stands for the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseils). While these tender documents have been prepared with great care, taking into account international procurement and contracting experience, the Bank does not assume any responsibility that the contract form, including example provisions and guidance notes, contained in these Standard Tender Documents are suitable, adequate and complete in respect of any particular project. Parties wishing to use the above contract form are advised to seek their own legal counsel for drafting conditions of contract which would reflect the specifics of the particular project.

Although these tender documents have been designed to accommodate the FIDIC Conditions of Contract for Construction, the choice of the contact form shall not be construed as being mandatory for the use under the Bank funded project. According to the EBRD Procurement Policies and Rules, wherever appropriate, standard forms of contract incorporating generally accepted international conditions should be used. The use of standard contract forms for building and civil works will ensure comprehensive cover, general acceptability of its provisions, savings in cost and time in tender preparation and review, and a solid background of legal case histories. The following Conditions of Contract would be generally acceptable to the Bank though shall be subject to the Bank’s no objection as part of its review of the project procurement plan:

The FIDIC-MDB Harmonised Edition of the Conditions of Contract for Construction, March 2006

The Bank has entered into a licence agreement with the FIDIC. According to the terms of the license agreement, it gives entities involved in the development, tendering and implementation of EBRD-financed projects free access to the FIDIC- MDB Harmonised General Conditions of Contract for Construction through the FIDIC and the Bank official Web Sites. Although the Bank supports the use of the FIDIC- MDB Harmonised General Conditions of Contract for Construction, this form of contract is not mandatory for Bank financed projects.

Other Forms of Contract

-Any of the contract forms prepared by the International Federation of Consulting Engineers (Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseils, or FIDIC)

Guidance for Section VIII.

Particular Conditions of Contract (PCC)

The Employer should use the Guidance for the Preparation of the Particular Conditions provided as part of the “Conditions of Contract for Construction” 1st edition 1999 prepared by the Fédération Internationale des Ingénieurs-Conseils (FIDIC). In addition, the following clauses are intended for use by the Employer in preparing the Particular Conditions of Contract (PCC). Use them to complement or replace the Particular Conditions published by FIDIC. They are not a complete standard set of PCC provisions; country- or Project-specific provisions for the PCC must also be prepared in each case.

The provisions of the PCC complement the General Conditions of Contract (GCC), specifying contractual requirements linked to the special circumstances of the country, the Employer, the Engineer, the sector, the overall project, and the contract Works. In preparing the PCC, check that you have incorporated essential information to complete the provisions of the PCC and amended and/or supplemented the provisions of the GCC as required or recommended by the Bank or as necessitated by the circumstances of the specific Works.

Whoever drafts the PCC should be thoroughly familiar with the provisions of the GCC and with any specific requirements of the Contract. Legal advice is recommended when amending provisions or drafting new ones. Note that the PCC provisions take precedence over those in the GCC.

Part 3 - Section VIII: Particular Conditions of Contract
