NOTE TO ALL SUPPLIERS
UNICEF Supply Division, Cold Chain Unit, procures Cold Chain Equipment for the safe transport and storage of vaccines. This bid plan lists Cold Chain items that are foreseen to be requested in a tender during 2013 for delivery of goods directly to countries.
The bid plan consists of two sections:
Section 1 contains anticipated tenders in 2013 for establishing Long Term Arrangements.
Section 2 indicates on a short term basis tenders to be issued to cover specific customer requests. Items may also be listed here without estimated bidding date if they are usually demanded at some point during each year. A bidding date may be set later in case of a concrete customer demand for that item.
a) The bid plan is only indicative and may vary substantially from the actual bidding exercise.
b) UNICEF Supply Division will decide whether to tender for these requirements through a Request for Expression Of Interest, Request For Quotation, Invitation To Bid or Request For Proposal.
c) It is UNICEF's prerogative to establish whether any such bidding exercise is to be advertised in the UNICEF Supply Division website.
d) UNICEF reserves the right to accept or reject any Expression of Interest, to initiate or annul any tender exercise at any time, without thereby incurring any liability to the affected Suppliers/Manufacturers or any obligation to inform the affected Suppliers/Manufacturers of the grounds for UNICEF's action.
e) Suppliers/Manufacturers should indicate which products they are interested to quote, by email to Mr Mirko Menninga at email@example.com with clear reference to item code(s) and specification.
f) Product specifications may be available on the UNICEF online catalogue at: https://supply.unicef.org
Pre-Qualification of product with WHO: Potential bidders should note that a number of cold chain products UNICEF requests may be subject to WHO PQS pre-qualification. Interested suppliers should therefore take timely action to conclude the pre-qualification process with WHO, in order to have an eligible product available to be offered to UNICEF. Information regarding the WHO PQS pre-qualification and the applicable performance specifications are available at: http://apps.who.int/immunization_standards/vaccine_quality/pqs_catalogue/index.aspx
