WE4F invites eligible business and legal service providers to respond to WE4F’s Call for Expressions of Interest (EOI) to become part of the pool of pre-vetted service providers to deliver technical assistance. As TA needs are identified, requests for proposals (RFPs) and requests for quotation (RFQs) will be issued to pre-vetted service providers in their respective TA category areas. All subcontracts resulting from limited competition among pre-vetted service providers will be issued by GIZ.
OBJECTIVE OF THE EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
EOIs submitted by applicants are to help the WE4F identify registered companies who are interested in being included in a pool of pre-vetted service providers and provide services to the innovators supported by WE4F between 2021 and 2023. Being selected to participate in the pre-vetted pool of service providers does not guarantee any award from WE4F. Instead, it provides an opportunity to bid on RFPs and/or RFQs with specific scopes of work to provide specific, tailor-made TA to innovators.
