Procurement

The UNAMA Procurement Section procures requisite commodities through competitive solicitations from qualified vendors registered in the vendor roster.

The UNAMA Procurement Section procures requisite commodities through competitive solicitations from qualified vendors registered in the vendor roster.

Depending upon the complexity of a requirement and the value of the commodity to be procured, the solicitation is issued as a Request for Proposal (RFP) or an Invitation to Bid (ITB) or as a Request for Quotation (RFQ). In specific;

  • RFP's are issued when the requirements are not specific and price may be only one of other considerations in award of the Contract.
  • ITB's are issued when the requirement is specific and evaluation of offers is based on price and other price related factors.
  • RFQ's are issued for low value procurement normally where the requirement is specific and evaluation of offers is based on price and other price related factors.

As a general practice most requirements above US$40,000 are procured through either an RFP or ITB.
