Section II: Object
Framework Agreement — Consultancy Services for Development Programs Concerning REDD+ and Green Economy
The overall thematic focus of the framework agreement is related to REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) including land use planning, sustainable food systems and forest law enforcement. Further, green economy and low carbon development are also thematic focus areas. The framework agreement will mainly, but not exclusively, be used for consultancy services related to the Norwegian International Climate and Forest Initiative (NICFI).
The procurement covers a framework agreement with several Suppliers. Norad will be the suppliers’ legal counterpart. Under the framework agreement the suppliers will conduct consultancy services for Norad. These will normally be directly related to projects either managed by Norad, Embassies or the MoCE. The consultancy services will normally fall within four different types of assignments.
1) Project proposal appraisals ahead of funding decisions.
2) Mid-term and end-reviews.
3) Technical assessments. This could be follow-up on recommendations from reviews/appraisals.
4) Technical assistance to partner institutions, including capacity building and training.
Norad will enter into a framework agreement for a period of 2 years with the possible extension of up to 2 years (2 + 1 + 1).
