REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

 

The Government of Guyana (GOGY) has received financing from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) – United Kingdom Caribbean Infrastructure Partnership Fund towards the cost of Technical Assistance – Coastal and River Infrastructure Rehabilitation - Preparation of a Feasibility Study and Detailed Designs and intends to apply a portion of the proceeds of this financing to eligible payments under a contract for which this invitation is issued.  Payments by CDB will be made only at the request of GOGY and upon approval by CDB, and will be subject in all respects to the terms and conditions of the Financing Agreement.  The Financing Agreement prohibits withdrawal from the financing account for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import, to the knowledge of CDB, is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations.  No party other than GOGY shall derive any rights from the Financing Agreement or have any claim to the proceeds of the Financing.

The Ministry of Public Infrastructure (MPI), the Executing Agency, through its Work Services Group (WSG) now wishes to procure consultancy services to conduct a feasibility study and detailed designs for the coastal infrastructure rehabilitation from Kingston to Ogle and the upgrade of the Stabroek Market and Vreed-en-Hoop Stellings, including modernisation of the passenger facilities. .

The objective of this consultancy is to establish technically and economically viable solutions to upgrade the coastal defence from Kingston to Ogle and enhance the facilities for water transport operations at Stabroek Market and Vreed-en-Hoop Stellings. This will support economic development, positive social and gender impacts and greater climate change resilience. These will be accomplished through the conduct of the feasibility study, preparation of detailed designs, cost estimates and bid documents, in accordance with appropriate design standards, including those to ensure accessibility for persons with disabilities. The designs will be complemented by interventions based on the findings of a Social and Gender Impact Assessment which will enhance gender equality and social development.
