All relevant information is contained in the attached documents.
Below please find the questions and relevant answers raised by some invitees:
1) UNICEF Supplier Manufacturing Site Questionnaire
All bids must be accompanied by the UNICEF Supplier Manufacturing Site Questionnaire. This questionnaire cannot be replaced by ISO 9001 or other certificates.
2) Machines to be supplied 'pre-installed' or in-site installation
This would be acceptable but the supplier must make sure it is clearly specified in the offer what is included in the price offered and where this service is offered.
3) Catalogue Ordering Solution
Can UNICEF clarify what they are ideally looking for?
We are ideally looking for a catalogue online i.e. a site where all UNICEF country offices can easily get information of what models are available at what prices.
If suppliers cannot offer this, then they can provide a product list with pictures, specifications and prices which UNICEF will publish on its intranet so it is easily available to all UNICEF offices.
Is an on-line ordering system requested?
No, an on-line ordering system is not required nor desirable. UNICEF offices globally will issue hard copy purchase orders to the chosen vendors.
However, payment of invoices is centralised in Supply Division Copenhagen.
4) Submisison Date
Kindly note that it has been decided to extend the deadline for the submission of offers until 25th April 2013 at 23.59 hours (Copenhagen time).
