Section I – Instruction to Bidders
Section I. Instructions to Bidders
A. General
1. Scope of Bid
1.1 UNOPS issues these Bidding Documents for the supply of Goods and Related Services
incidental thereto as specified in Section V, Schedule of Requirements. The name and
identification number of this Invitation to Bid (ITB) are specified in the BDS.
1.2 Throughout these Bidding Documents:
(a) the term “in writing” means communicated in written form (e.g. by mail, e-mail,
fax, telex) with proof of receipt;
(b) if the context so requires, “singular” means “plural” and vice versa; and
(c) “day” means calendar day.
2. Source of Funds
2.1 UNOPS intends to apply a portion of the funds it has received from funding sources to
eligible payments under the contract for which these Bidding Documents are issued.
The name of the project is specified in the BDS.
3. Fraud and
Corruption
3.1 It is UNOPS policy to require that Bidders, suppliers, and contractors and their
subcontractors under UNOPS contracts, observe the highest standard of ethics during the
procurement and execution of such contracts. In pursuance of this policy, UNOPS:
(a) defines, for the purposes of this provision, the terms set forth below as follows:
(i) bribery is the act of unduly offering, giving, receiving or soliciting anything of
value to influence the process of procuring goods or services, or executing
contracts;
(ii) extortion or coercion is the act of attempting to influence the process of
procuring goods or services, or executing contracts by means of threat of
injury to person, property or reputation;
(iii) fraud is the misrepresentation of information or facts for the purpose of
influencing the process of procuring goods or services, or executing the
contracts, to the detriment of UNOPS or other participants;
(iv) collusion is the agreement between Bidders designed to result in bids at
artificial prices that are not competitive.
(b) will reject a proposal to award a contract if it determines that a vendor
recommended for award has engaged in corrupt practices in competing for the
contract in question;
(c) will declare a vendor ineligible, either indefinitely or for a stated period of time,
to become a UN registered vendor if it at any time determines that the vendor has
engaged in corrupt practices in competing for or in executing a UNOPS contract;
(d) will cancel or terminate a contract if it determines that a vendor has engaged in
corrupt practices in competing for or in executing a UNOPS contract;
(e) will normally require a UNOPS vendor to allow UNOPS, or any person that
UNOPS may designate, to inspect or carry out audits of the vendor’s accounting
records and financial statements in connection with the contract.
3.2 Any vendor participating in UNOPS’ procurement activities, shall facilitate to UNOPS
personnel upon first request, all documents, records and other elements needed by UNOPS
to investigate the allegations of misconduct by either vendors or any other party to the
procurement activities. The absence of such cooperation may be sufficient grounds for the
debarment of the vendor from UNOPS vendor roster and may lead to suspension following
review by UNOPS Vendor Review Committee.
3.3 Suppliers, their subsidiaries, agents, intermediaries and principals must cooperate with the
Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) of the United Nations, UNOPS Internal Audit
and Investigations Group (IAIG) as well as with other investigations authorized by the
Executive Director and with the UNOPS Ethics Officer (during preliminary reviews in line
with UNOPS whistle blower policy) as and when required. Such cooperation shall include,
but not be limited to, the following: access to all employees, representatives, agents and
ITB No. UNOPS-HAR-IPO-15-2012
Page 5 of 91
Section I – Instruction to Bidders
assignees of the supplier; as well as production of all documents requested, including
financial records. Failure to fully cooperate with investigations will be considered sufficient
grounds to allow UNOPS to repudiate and terminate the contract, and to debar and remove
the supplier from UNOPS’s list of registered suppliers.

proposed subcontractors or suppliers for any part of the Contract including Related
Services.
4.2 A Bidder shall not have a conflict of interest. All Bidders found to have conflict of
interest shall be disqualified. Bidders may be considered to have a conflict of interest
with one or more parties in this bidding process, if they:
(a) are or have been associated in the past, with a firm or any of its affiliates which
have been engaged by UNOPS to provide consulting services for the preparation
of the design, specifications, and other documents to be used for the procurement
of the Goods to be purchased under these Bidding Documents ; or
(b) submit more than one bid in this bidding process, except for alternative offers

subtotals, the subtotals shall prevail and the total shall be corrected; and

prevail, unless the amount expressed in words is related to an arithmetic error, in
which case the amount in figures shall prevail subject to (a) and (b) above.
