RFP 503365 seeks to secure a reliable supplier base capable of meeting strict quality requirements at competitive prices and able to respond to emergency requests. As a result of this tender UNICEF intends to award Long Term Arrangements (LTA) for 2 years (with a possible renewal for 3 additional periods of 12 months) to 5-7 suppliers in different geographical locations, having sufficient capacity and dedicated production facilities to meet global needs with a quality and competitive product.  UNICEF encourages manufacturers to make MNPs more sustainable by reducing packaging waste.

Please note:

It is anticipated that MNP procurement will stabilize at between 15-25 million packs per year on average over the next few years. Thus, the forecast for the 2-years tender period is 45 million packs of MNPs.

Procurement of Therapeutic CMV has been more ad hoc, fluctuating around 300-500 cartons per year.  

Webinars to explain the tender process and respond to questions will be scheduled on two different days and times to suit as much as possible the time zones you are located in.  Attached are the calendar invitations to book one of the webinars in your calendar. Please click “Copy to My Calendar”.
