Sub-lots 1.1 and 2.1 will be financed from the proceeds of the loans and sub-lots 1.2 and 2.2 will be financed from the proceeds of the grant:
- Lot / Contract 1 (for 33 Facilities aggregated in Lot 1 divided into sub-lots 1.1 and 1.2)
- Lot / Contract 2 (for 34 Facilities aggregated in Lot 2 divided into sub-lots 2.1 and 2.2)
Tenders are invited for one or both lots.
The Tenderers shall submit the Tenders for both sub-lots within each lot. Failure to submit proposals for both sub-lots in each lot will result in the rejection of the Tender.
Tendering for contracts to be financed with the proceeds of the EBRD and the CTF loans and the SSF grant is open to firms from all countries. The proceeds of the EBRD and the CTF loans and the SSF grant will not be used for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations.

A two-stage tender procedure will be adopted and will proceed as follows:
(a) the First Stage tender will consist of a technical proposal only, without any reference to prices, and a list of any deviations to the technical and commercial conditions set forth in the tender documents or any alternative technical solutions a tenderer wishes to offer, and a justification therefore, provided always that such deviations or alternative solutions do not change the basic objectives of the project.
Together with the First Stage Tender the Tenderers will have to submit documentary evidence confirming their compliance with the qualification criteria to perform the Contract(s) using the relevant forms furnished in Volume I. iv: Tender Forms.

The proposals of all such tenderers will be reviewed at the meeting and all required amendments, additions, deletions and other adjustments will be noted and recorded in a Memorandum. Only qualified tenderers submitting a technically responsive and acceptable First Stage tender will be invited to submit a Second Stage tender.
(b) the Second Stage tender will consist of an updated technical tender incorporating all changes required by the Employer as recorded in the Memorandum to the clarification meeting or as necessary to reflect any amendments to the tender documents issued subsequent to submission of the First Stage tender; and the commercial tender.
