Preliminary note: This Request for Information (RFI) is a general outreach initiative and is not
related to a specific requirement or upcoming procurement exercise. The purpose of this RFI is to inform
interested air operators and new prospective vendors about the UN's anticipated continued demand for air ambulance / aeromedical evacuation services and potential business
opportunities. In addition, the UN Procurement Division (UNPD) is seeking to engage with interested air
operators who have experience and capacity to provide the services in order to provide information about
doing business with the UN and to encourage registration as a UN Air Operator Vendor.
The UN may have upcoming requirements to establish contractual arrangements with an Air Operator(s) who has the capacity to provide aeromedical evacuation / air ambulance services for Covid-19 patients, in support of UN offices located in various regions. The UN may seek to establish an arrangement either on a standby (non-exclusive) basis or potentially on dedicated basis with 24/7 guaranteed availability for UN tasking.
The location of the Main Operations Base of the aircraft(s) shall be specified under a particular procurement activity or market outreach initiative, however, in general the UN is seeking interested Air Operators with interest and capacity to provide the services within the following regions. The evacuation destination and receiving hospitals shall be specified under a particular tasking ordered under an established contract. The aircraft(s) should be able to fly, with short notices primarily within the region of its Main Operating Base, or potentially across neighboring regions:
Region 1: Central and South America;
Region 2: Europe;
Region 3: West and East Africa;
Region 4: The Middle East; and
Region 5: South, South East Asia and Oceania.
Air Operators who have the interest and capacity to provide such services are requested to complete and return the attached questionnaire.

-Passenger Carriage, Air Ambulance services, Medevac in support of the United Nations. The Aircraft must be appropriately equipped with Air ambulance operations (medical supplies and personnel). Medical supplies shall include all equipment, consumables, and pharmaceuticals.

The registration process comprises a two-part evaluation on: (i) technical/operational capacity and (ii) corporate/financial capacity. Applicants shall take note that for this category of procurement, the UN may only enter into a contract directly with air operators (AOC holders) and not brokers/agents.
