GIZ has three Calls for Expression of Interest

SPONSORED

First Call for Expression of Interest

The Governance Support Programme (GSP II) is a partnership programme agreed to between the Governments of South Africa and Germany. It is a technical co-operation programme co-steered at national level in a partnership between the Department of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA), the Department of Public Service and Administration (DPSA), the National Treasury (NT), the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the latter responsible for the implementation of the development contributions on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Co-operation and Development (BMZ). The GSP II is co-financed by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

The Office of the Chief Procurement Officer of South Africa has, with the assistance of the GSP II, developed a contract management framework which in its absence in the past, will provide for easier implementation within all government institutions going forward.

The GSP II thus seeks to appoint a suitable and competent service provider to develop training material on contract management as per the existing guideline, provide training to eight partner municipalities and support the implementation thereof.

The objective of the assignment is to undertake the following:

  1. Consult an existing baseline study and review standard operating procedures for SCM of the selected municipalities with respect to contract management;
  2. Develop training material for contract management within the public sector and in alignment to the recently established guidelines;
  3. Identify and train appropriate staff within eight GIZ partner municipalities; and
  4. Provide on-the-job support to improve the respective GIZ partner municipality’s contract management in accordance with the set guidelines.

The contractor must be able to work according to the Covid-19 regulations applicable in South Africa and, by implication of the current level four, undertake the first three tasks set out above in a virtual/online environment.  Furthermore, the service provider is encouraged to envisage alternatives to on-site training, e.g. online training methods in order to avoid contract delays should free movement not be allowed after October 2020.


GIZ invites eligible and professional companies with local presence in South Africa to participate in this tender.

Second Call for Expression of Interest

The GIZ GSP II is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified service provider to support the Ehlanzeni District Municipality (EDM) and its four Local Municipalities (LMs) in developing capacity to understand and implement the outcomes-based approach. The outcomes-based approach aims to improve service delivery performance through strategic focus and introducing a systematic monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system that identifies suitable indicators, measures theses, analyses and uses information for improved evidence-based policy and decision making. A challenge within the local government sphere is that focus remains on indicators and targets at an input and output level.

This assignment aims to ensure that capacity is built in the district and local municipalities to apply and use the outcomes-based approach, including concepts such as the theory of change and the design and formulation of outcome-based indicators and targets. The assignment will start with a rapid assessment of EDM and its LMs in regard of their strategic planning frameworks, quality of indicators, current approach to designing and developing indicators, decision making process, etc. The assessment will provide a baseline for the capacity development support and accompanying deliverables. One of the deliverables will be a standardised set of indicators for EDM and the LMs. Specific focus will be paid to EDM in regard of developing a specific set of indicators for municipal health. These indicators will be used to measure progress towards outcomes in the district and will contribute to the development of a one plan as part of the District Development Model (DDM). Reporting requirements, timeframes and formats will also be reviewed in the light of the shift to the outcomes-based approach and a standardised approach to streamline reporting (where possible) will be designed and utilised.

At the conclusion of the assignment EDM and the LMs will have a common understanding of the outcomes-based approach and will be implementing the approach to improve planning, monitoring and decision making for service delivery. A guideline will be available for future reference and implementation guidance as well as for upscaling with other district and local municipalities.

GIZ invites eligible and professional companies with local presence in South Africa to participate in this tender.

Third Call for Expression of Interest

APPOINTMENT OF A SERVICE PROVIDER TO UNDERTAKE SITUATION ANALYSIS AND PROVIDE OPTIONS FOR CLEAN ENERGY IN INFORMAL SETTLEMENTS WITHIN THE CITY OF TSHWANE AND CITY OF JOBURG METROPOLITAN MUNICIPALITIES

The Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA), City of Tshwane (CoT) and City of Johannesburg (CoJ) is seeking to appoint a service provider to undertake situation analysis and options for clean energy in informal settlements within the CoT and CoJ metropolitan municipalities.

The GIZ is currently assisting the CoT and the CoJ in developing and implementing Air Quality Management Plans (AQMPs).  The baseline assessments conducted as part of AQMP development have shown that ambient air quality in low-income communities (informal settlements) such as Diepkloof, Alexandra, Mamelodi and Olivenhoutbosch exceed the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), set in terms of section 9 of the National Environmental Management: Air Quality Act. Poor air quality conditions in these settlements are associated with, domestic burning of dirty fuels such as coal, wood, and paraffin, as well as waste burning. The objective of the project is to assess the use of dirty fuels in two informal settlements (one in  CoT and one in CoJ) and identify solutions better suited to reduce the burning of dirty fuels in those settlements
