  1. General

  1. Scope of Bid

    1. In support of the Invitation for Bids indicated in the Bid Data Sheet (BDS), the Purchaser, as indicated in the BDS, issues these Bidding Documents for the supply of Goods and Related Services incidental thereto as specified in Section VI, Schedule of Requirements. The name, identification, and number of lots of the International Competitive Bidding (ICB) are provided in the BDS.

    2. Throughout these Bidding Documents:
      1. the term “in writing” means communicated in written form with proof of receipt;

      2. if the context so requires, singular means plural and vice versa; and

      3. “day” means calendar day.

  1. Source of Funds

    1. The Borrower or Recipient (hereinafter called “Borrower”) indicated in the BDS has applied for or received financing (hereinafter called “funds”) from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development or the International Development Association (hereinafter called “the Bank”) toward the cost of the project named in the BDS. The Borrower intends to apply a portion of the funds to eligible payments under the contract for which these Bidding Documents are issued.

    2. Payments by the Bank will be made only at the request of the Borrower and upon approval by the Bank in accordance with the terms and conditions of the financing agreement between the Borrower and the Bank (hereinafter called the Loan Agreement), and will be subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of that Loan Agreement. No party other than the Borrower shall derive any rights from the Loan Agreement or have any claim to the funds.

  1. Corrupt Practices

    1. The Bank requires that Borrowers (including beneficiaries of Bank loans), as well as Bidders, Suppliers, Contractors, and Consultants under Bank-financed contracts, observe the highest standard of ethics during the procurement and execution of such contracts. In pursuit of this policy, the Bank:
      1. defines, for the purposes of this provision, the terms set forth below as follows:

        1. “corrupt practice” means the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of anything of value to influence the action of a public official in the procurement process or in contract execution; and

        2. “fraudulent practice” means a misrepresentation of facts in order to influence a procurement process or the execution of a contract to the detriment of the Borrower, and includes collusive practices among Bidders (prior to or after bid submission) designed to establish bid prices at artificial, noncompetitive levels and to deprive the borrower of the benefits of free and open competition;
