INVITATION FOR BIDS

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 supports Tunisia’s democratic transition by working with members of Tunisia’s government on communication, planning, and coordination and civil society on accountability and advocacy. To conduct this work, IRI requires three Tunis-based dedicated full-time drivers to transport IRI staff to activities they implement throughout the country.
IRI will provide cars for drivers to maintain and house. Most transportation will occur in Tunis, but IRI staff will need to be driven regularly outside of Tunis.

Period of Performance:

July 1, 2019- June 30, 2020

Statement of Work:

Selected bidders will be required to transport expatriates to and from the IRI office in Tunis and their homes in Tunis and its suburbs in the mornings and evenings Monday-Friday except for U.S. and Tunisian holidays. They will also be required to remain at the IRI office during the workday hours (9-5) unless called upon to transport IRI staff to other locations.

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 monthly.

IRI will cover the cost of communications for the driver by providing 50 TND in phone credit per month

1. Possession of driver’s license

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. 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.

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

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.

a) Possession of driver’s license – 15 percent
b) Possession of tax identification number– 15 percent

c) Intermediate level French to communicate with IRI staff– 15 percent
