2.5    Tender Evaluation and Contract Award(s)

The tender evaluation process will be carried out by an Internal Tender Evaluation Committee. The process will cover three stages, which are as follows:

  1. First Stage (Preliminary Check)

This stage of the evaluation process will rely on the following criteria, which will permit ASF to determine if the tender complies with the OLIT’s terms and conditions:

  • The tender has been signed;
  • The tender submitted has been received by ASF before the stipulated submission deadline;
  • The validity period for the tender is of at least three (3) months from the stipulated submission deadline;
  • The tender submitted contains all necessary documentation (no exceptions) and information, in conformity with paragraph 2.3 below;
  • The financial bid (budget) has been duly filled out and signed;

Any tender that does not abide by these criteria will be immediately rejected and shall not be taken into consideration during the technical evaluation.

  1. Second Stage (Technical Evaluation)

This stage in the evaluation process will ensure that technical bids comply with the technical reference terms for OLIT’s, which appear under Part II below.

The tenderer will be rejected if the documents do not comply with the provisions in place under the law of Kenya.

After the evaluation of technical bids, the tenderers who do not qualify will be automatically eliminated and will not be taken into consideration during the next stage.

  1. Third Stage (Financial Evaluation)

ASF will take the following factors into account when evaluating the financial bids:

  1. Price (60%);
  2. Delivery period (20%);
  3. The bidder’s prior experience (20%).

The chosen tenderer will be the one whose bid is deemed to be eligible and comply with the first and second stage of the evaluation process, and whose bid will have obtained the highest score during the third stage, which takes into account the delivery period and the price of each individual good.

2.6     Amendments

If at any point in time before awarding a contract – ASF deems that it is necessary to make a significant modification to the OLIT provisions, a written amendment to these provisions shall be sent out to all suppliers who have requested a copy of the OLIT. No declarations, oral or otherwise, to limit, curtail, exclude, modify or affect in any other way any terms or conditions stipulated in this call to tender should be taken into consideration, and suppliers should not heed any such declaration.

2.7     Modifications or Withdrawals

None of the documents submitted may be modified, filled out, corrected or withdrawn by request of the supplier after the deadline for the submission of tenders stipulated on the cover has passed. None of the OLIT tenders can be modified, filled out or corrected after the deadline. Nevertheless, if ASF deems it necessary, it may request further clarification or explanations from the supplier. Such a request, as well as its reply, must be communicated in writing.

         

          2.8     Contract Award

After having thoroughly evaluated and compared the tenders, ASF will make its decision concerning the contract award and will notify the successful bidder(s) by mail with acknowledgement of receipt. ASF will inform the successful bidder(s) of which tender(s) has (have) been accepted.

Unsuccessful bidders will also be notified. This decision is final and not open to appeals.  ASF will keep the files of the unsuccessful candidates.
