Section 3: Scope of Work and Technical Qualifications 

3a. Background 

LEAP is a four-year, USAID-funded cooperative agreement implemented by Chemonics International,  Inc. The life of the project spans from October 2022 to September 2026. LEAP works with private  sector micro-, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in southern Libya in the agriculture, services,  and industrial sectors, among others, to support their sustainable economic growth.  

LEAP has determined that a key constraint facing MSMEs in southern Libya is a lack of business skills  and systems to support sustainable, efficient growth. To address this gap, LEAP will undertake a  program to hire business development service providers who can work with MSMEs that have  partnered with LEAP to build their capacity in four major areas:  

  1. Marketing: 
  2. Marketing training 
  3. Marketing strategy development 
  4. Digital marketing strategy 
  5. Digital marketing 
  6. Brand development 
  7. Business management capacity building 
  8. HR capacity development 
  9. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and management systems development 5. Finance and accounting capacity building

Generally, LEAP seeks to identify business development service providers (vendors) that can provide  technical assistance in the areas specified above as well as provide direct training to SME staff.  

LEAP works with SMEs throughout southern Libya. However, the majority of SMEs partnered with  LEAP operate in the major economic and population hubs of Sabha, Murzuq, Ubari, Ghat and  Algatroun. Offerors should be able to operate to all these regions. Activities and trainings should be  conducted in a location that is accessible to partner SMEs and should maximize the number of staff  that can participate. For instance, if a successful offeror is not able to deliver training or hold a  meeting with an SME on site at the business location, the offeror must provide a suitable alternative  location that is in reasonable proximity to the SME.  

3b. Objective 

The objective of this solicitation is to support LEAP partner SMEs to gain skills, knowledge, and  guidance documents that will enable them to become more competitive in regional, national, and  international markets, increasing revenue, profits, and creating new jobs.  

The specific objectives of the activity are as follows:  

– Increase management, administrative, finance, procurement and human resources capacity and  literacy of partner SMEs 

– Increase capability of partner SMEs to improve their marketing strategies and develop new ones – Enable partner SMEs to be able to create their own Entrerprise Resource Planning system 

– Enable partner SMEs to develop their business plans, promoting management and  administrative skills required to run a successful business. 

3c. Scope of Work 

The purpose of this RFQ is to engage Vendor(s) and independent expert(s) to provide business  development services to Chemonics and LEAP. LEAP is accepting quotations from business  development service providers to provide the following services to the project’s partner SMEs in  southern Libya, including Sabha, Murzuq, Ubari, Ghat and Algatroun 

Offerors should be prepared to conduct a thorough review of the partner SME (assessment), then  develop the action plan with clear deliverables in the main objective areas noted above as needed  and in consultation with LEAP and with a subsequent written request or PAR issued by LEAP, and  finally provide technical assistance on those same objective areas. Please note that not all SMEs will  require support in all areas and some firms will only receive partial support in these areas. Successful  offerors will play a critical role in helping to improve all SMEs by assessing the business’ strengths,  opportunities for improvement, and recommending possible solutions. The successful offeror must  be able to understand partner SME needs, what they wish to improve, and how to develop a  strategy to achieve these objectives that will be included in the action plans to be submitted to LEAP  as written deliverables.  

Reporting 

The vendor will regularly report on the implementation of the above activities, planning, and  scheduling. Reports will include any challenges, barriers, or lessons learned throughout  implementation. The vendor must also coordinate with LEAP’s monitoring, evaluation, and learning  plan to capture the results and impact of the above activities.  

Technical Qualifications that the selected offeror must possess: 

Offerors must have experience and success in delivering similar technical assistance. Consultants will be required to travel to the field to deliver assistance to the selected SMEs to the locations listed above. 

Offerors are required to share the CVs and education background of the consultant’s part of  the quotation submission. Consultants must be fluent in Arabic, the working language of the  selected SMEs. Any consultant that is unable to engage with SMEs will be noted as  insufficient in completing the assignment deliverable, and thus the vendor may not be able  to invoice the deliverable to LEAP.  

Offerors are required to equip consultants with training materials, laptops, projectors, and  any other equipment which is required for the delivery of the technical assistance. 

Staff assigned to these tasks must have a bachelor’s degree and a minimum three of years of  experience; staff must have completed all required certifications and licenses required by  local law and regulations.  

Experience with USAID or other donor-funded projects in Libya, especially those  implemented by for-profit international firms like Chemonics, is highly preferred.  

The table below contains the list of services under RFQ. Offerors are requested to provide  quotations containing the information below on official letterhead or official quotation format. In
