Request for Expression of Interest: Consulting services for undertaking capacity needs assessment and preparing a comprehensive capacity development program.

The Government of Mozambique has received a grant from the Nordic Development Fund (NDF) towards the costs of the Mozambique Cities and Climate Change Project. It is intended that part of the proceeds of the grant will be applied to eligible payments for Consulting Services for undertaking a capacity needs assessment and preparing a comprehensive capacity development program. The consulting services include providing specific technical assistance to Administracao de Infra-estruturas de Agua e Saneamento (AIAS) within a foreseen duration of three (3) months.

The scope of work will include capacity assessment of three institutions; elaboration of a comprehensive capacity development program and prioritizing interventions for the involved institutions; and support and advise AIAS in the process for tendering of Phase II of the capacity development support of the project. AIAS intends to procure these services using the Selection Based on the Consultants’ Qualifications (CQS)method, where one Consulting firm (or association of firms) will be selected, based on the Expression of Interest, to submit Technical and Financial proposals and negotiate the contract.

The attention of interested Consultants is drawn to the fact that the firms(s) and individuals employed for these services shall not be eligible to participate in downstream services in this Project (Phase II of capacity development). AIAS now invites interested consultants from any countries who have the necessary capacity and qualifications to express their interests in providing these services.
