Public Procurement Commission, is the top policy-making body for all procurement and contract award matters in the Public Service. The public Procurement Commission is responsible for providing all the information that a Tenderer needs in order to prepare and submit a Tender. This should provide a sound basis on which the Procuring Entity can fairly, transparently and accurately carry out a Tender evaluation process on the Tenders submitted by the Tenderers.

Step I
  • Invitation for Tender (IFT):

This is Inviting the Tenderers through published announcement in the media and on the website of the Procuring Entity announcing the Tender and providing the essential information to prospective Tenderers to invite them to participate.

When the Commission is satisfied that a project is ready for contract award process, the Commission will authorize the advertisement of the Pre-Qualification for the contract. For contracts above N1 million but below N 10 million, notices for pre-qualification will be placed on the Notice Board of the Commission.

Advertisement of tenders: Contracts above approximately US$80,000 must be advertised in at least two national dailies and/or in the government gazette. The advertisement is to be made at least six weeks before the deadline for submitting bids for goods. Notices of all other tenders below US$8,000 must be posted on the notice board of the procuring agencies.
For all contracts to be considered, a memorandum should be presented by the executing Department or Unit to the appropriate authority as provided in the procurement and award manual.
In the case of contracts above N 10 million, advertisement must be placed in the Federal Tender Journal and/or in at least two national newspapers for "Invitation for Pre-Qualification".

Step II
  • Guide line and Instructions to Tenderers:

The instruction to tenders give a comprehensive guideline as well as standard instructions which guide the Tenderers how to prepare their tenders. Standard instructions mean that they cannot be modified by the Procuring Entity. These guidelines are based on the Procurement Law and the Regulations for Goods and Works, from which the procedures for tender submission, opening, evaluation and Contract award have been derived. They clarify the general evaluation criteria for the selection of the lowest evaluated responsive tenderer and describe the basic qualifications of the Tenderer needed for contract execution. After the applicant has read and understood the requiments and guidline then he can request for the Application form.

  • Note that the Standard instruction Section cannot be changed under any circumstances.
Step III
  • The Applicant can now fill the Application Form following Special Instructions to Tenderers (SIT).

In this Stage the the Procuring Entity supplements fills the Form and adapts the relevant clauses of the ITT to the specific tender information or project requirements where needed (name of the Procuring Entity, tender submission date, specific evaluation criteria, amount of tender security, tender validity period, alternative tenders permitted or not, fixed price contract or contract subject to price adjustment, works completion date, domestic preference applies or not, level of performance security to be provided at contract signature and advance payment guarantee, etc). Modifications to the Instructions to Tenderers cannot change the Law or the Regulations.

  • Managerial and financial capacity as well as confirm their previous experiences in performing similar projects and ultimately their suitability as prospective bidders for the project.
  • There should be standardization of all specifications in order to ensure that a common denominator is used to determine pre-qualification of all respondents.

Step IV
  • The Applicant Signs on the General Conditions of Contract (GCC).

After consideration of the report of the Pre-qualification Evaluation Committee, all the qualified contractors will be issued with the Bid Document to enable them bid for the contract.

  • A maximum period of 6 weeks from the date of Invitation to Bid shall be allowed for the submission of completed bids.
  • Bid evaluation criteria should be clearly defined in the bidding document. Award of all contracts should be based on the criteria so defined.

Like the ITT, the GCC cannot be modified or adapted by the Procuring Entity except through the Special Conditions of Contract
