The procurement of the multi-disciplinary design team and principal designer is procured by the London Embassy in accordance with the Procurement Law of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan which requires that Afghan Government entities which are located outside of Afghanistan must conduct procurements in accordance with the rules and regulations of the host country. Therefore, the Services are being procured by the London Embassy in accordance with the Public Contract Regulations 2015 ("Regulations"). From an EU perspective, this meant that the London Embassy applied the provisions of the Regulations on a voluntary basis to the Procurement Process.
Economic operators participate in the Procurement Process entirely at their own risk and the London Embassy does not accept any liability in respect of costs incurred in relation to this Procurement Process.
The London Embassy shall not evaluate any Tenders received past the specified deadline, compliance with which is the sole responsibility of interested parties. Economic operators which alter their composition after submitting a Tender will be the subject of a re-evaluation.

It is anticipated that the successful tenderer will be announced in March 2018. Under section II.2.7 of this notice, the duration of the contract is estimated to be 2 years. The duration included in this Contract Notice is an estimate only.
The lump sum price to be provided by the Bidders is for the provision of services for the entire duration of the project, and no additional costs will be claimable under the contract purely by reason of the duration of the project being extended beyond that estimate.
