Background:

The International Republican Institute (IRI) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, organization dedicated to advancing freedom and democracy worldwide. Since 1983, IRI has worked to develop democratic institutions and ideals, carrying out a variety of international programs to promote freedom, self-government and the rule of law worldwide. IRI provides technical assistance in the areas of political party strengthening, developing civic institutions and open elections, promoting democratic governance and advancing the rule of law.

IRI currently works with municipal councils to bridge the divide between communities and municipal elected officials, while mitigating the effects of the population’s distrust of Libya’s fragile central government. To support this, IRI has assisted the Libyan Ministry of Local Government (MLG) to develop its own capacity to support nascent municipal councils. However, given the political division at the national level, which has begun to affect the MLG’s operation, IRI has focused its efforts on directly supporting the municipal councils through training and consultation. Additionally, IRI supports the political engagement of Libyan youth in democratic governance by providing them the necessary skills and opportunities to effectively communicate with local leaders to achieve common goals.

Period of Performance:

October 11, 2018 – October 11, 2019 with the option for IRI to extend for a total duration of up to 5 years in four one-year increments.

If selected, the bidders will be expected to work regularly on weekends or past 5pm for no additional pay. Drivers will be provided with time off on weekdays to make up for hours worked in excess of 60 hours per week or during the weekend. Selected bidders will also be required to keep a log detailing all trips for IRI business, including starting and ending points per trip. The logs will be signed by IRI resident program director on a monthly basis.

If there are any additional fees not reflected in the table below, such pricing must be fully described in the bid. Bids must be submitted Tunisian Dinars; payments under any resulting contract will be made in this currency.

IFB Terms and Conditions:

  1. Prospective Bidders are requested to review clauses incorporated by reference in the section “Notice Listing Contract Clauses Incorporated by Reference”. By submitting a bid, bidder agrees to comply with all terms, conditions, and provisions included in the solicitation and agreement to the services identified above, and will specifically identify any disagreement with or exceptions to the terms, conditions, and provisions.
  2. IRI may reject any or all bids if such is within IRI’s interest.
  3. The Bidder’s initial bid should contain the Bidder’s best offer.
  4. IRI reserves the right to make multiple awards or partial awards if, after considering administrative burden, it is in IRI’s best interest to do so.
  5. Discussions with Bidders following the receipt of a bid do not constitute a rejection or counteroffer by IRI.
  6. IRI will hold all submissions as confidential and shall not be disclosed to third parties. IRI reserves the right to share bids internally, across divisions, for the purposes of evaluating the bids.
  7. By submitting a bid, Bidder agrees to comply with all terms, conditions, and provisions included in the solicitation and agreement to the services identified above, and will specifically identify any disagreement with or exceptions to the terms, conditions, and provisions.
  8. If IRI continues to require the goods and services and the price remains reasonable and within market norms, resulting contract may be renewed each
    year for up to 5 years with 30 days’ notice to the Contractor. Bidder must establish any price increase for each renewal year in the initial bid.
  9. Bidders confirm that the prices in the bid/proposal/application/quote have been arrived at independently, without any consultation, communication, or agreement with any other bidder or competitor for the purpose of restricting competition.
  10. Bidders agree to disclose as part of the bid submission:
    a. Any close, familial, or financial relationships with IRI staff and agents. For example, the bidder must disclose if a bidder’s mother conducts volunteer trainings for IRI.
    b. Any family or financial relationship with other bidders submitting bids. For example, if the bidder’s father owns a company that is submitting another bid, the bidder must state this.
    c. Any other action that might be interpreted as potential conflict of interest.

Evaluation and Award Process:

  1. IRI may contact any Bidder for clarification or additional information, but Bidders are advised that IRI intends to evaluate the offers based on the written bids and reserves the right to make decisions based solely on the information provided with the initial bids. IRI may but is not obligated to conduct additional negotiations with the most highly rated Bidders prior to award of a contract, and may at its sole discretion elect to issue contracts to one or more Bidders.
  2. Mathematical errors will be corrected in the following manner: If a discrepancy exists between the total price proposed and the total price resulting from multiplying the unit price by the corresponding amounts, then the unit price will prevail and the total price will be corrected. If there were a discrepancy between the numbers written out in words and the amounts in numbers, then the amount expressed in words will prevail. If the Bidder does not accept the correction, the offer will be rejected.
  3. IRI may determine that a bid is unacceptable if the prices proposed are materially unbalanced between line items or sub-line items. Unbalanced pricing exists when, despite an acceptable total evaluated price, the price of one or more contract line items is significantly overstated or understated as indicated by the application of cost or price analysis techniques. A bid may be rejected if IRI determines that the lack of balance poses an unacceptable risk.
  4. IRI will conduct a source selection based as follows:
    1. IRI intends to make an award to the responsible Offeror whose proposal is fully responsive to the requirements of this RFP, and whose overall price is the lowest.
    2. IRI intends to evaluate bids in accordance with these factors and make an award to the responsible bidder whose proposal is most advantageous to the program.
  5. If a cost realism analysis is performed, cost realism may be considered in evaluating performance or price.
