II.1.4) Short description

Extremely poor households in Bangladesh find it difficult to get jobs and to access basic services such as health and education. This programme will support extremely poor people (primarily targeting women) to connect to mainstream economic growth and jobs. It will also build the national systems that are needed to support public and private investment in extreme poverty programmes and basic services like health and education.

The supplier will manage, and part implement the first 5-year phase of a 9-year (multi partner programme). As at this time only the first 5 years has received ministerial approval and part of the role of the successful supplier will be to support the clarification of needs for Phase 2 to support Phase 2 approval and the programme’s eventual graduation to Government of Bangladesh. Phase 2 approval, 4 years extension, will be sought from ministers.

The ultimate goal of this programme is to enable 2 000 000 people in Bangladesh to work their way out of extreme poverty for good and leave a programmatic approach which can be graduated to Government of Bangladesh at the end of the 9-year period for them to sustain efforts against extreme poverty independently.

Programme impact: the combined impact of phases 1 and 2 is expected to be:

(i) up to 2 000 000 extremely poor people exit extreme poverty;

(ii) 867 000 women and children reached with a package of nutrition-related interventions;

(iii) 250 000 women experience a significant change in their social status and ability to make decisions about their lives;

(iv) increased investment by the Government of Bangladesh in quality service provision to extreme poor households in the targeted communities.

Main site or place of performance:

The main place of performance and delivery of the requirement will be Bangladesh.

II.2.4) Description of the procurement

The supplier will manage, and part implement the first 5-year phase of a 9-year (multi partner programme). As at this time only the first 5 years has received ministerial approval and part of the role of the successful supplier will be to support the clarification of needs for Phase 2 to support phase 2 approval and the programme’s eventual graduation to Government of Bangladesh. Phase 2 approval, 4 years extension, will be sought from ministers.

At a summary level the supplier will provide the following requirements:

(a) provide overall programme management through a Programme Management Unit (PMU). PMU will coordinate all programme activities and across our multi-partner Pathways to Prosperity for Extremely Poor People (PPEPP) in Bangladesh programme. This role will also include provision of specific technical and capability development for PKSF, one of the main implementing partners;

(b) deliver a market systems component;

(c) lead and deliver an extreme poverty policy and governance facility; and

(d) design and manage a pilot life cycle grant (design to be used to secure ministerial approval to proceed to implementation of the grant scheme). The successful supplier will require to ring fence funds for the life-cycle grant scheme.

Note: the supplier will have no direct contractual relationship with the major implementing partner, PKSF, nor the CSO focused on livelihoods delivery in the Chittagong Hill tracts area. The scope and managing requirements of the PMU role has been discussed with other partners and will be set out within their agreements with DFID. To avoid conflicts of interest PKSF and the CSO cannot be part of the supply chain for this requirement.

DFID is seeking a supplier to deliver a 60-month contract of up to 35 500 000 GBP from June 2020 until June 2025 for the Pathways to Prosperity for Extremely Poor People (PPEPP) programme in Bangladesh.

The timeframe may be extended by up to an additional 4 years beyond the original 5-year term until June 2029 subject to satisfactory performance of the supplier, securing ministerial Approval of the phase 2 requirement, and the agreement of the supplier and DFID, utilising a negotiated procedure.

There is provision to scale up by an additional 24 500 000 GBP depending on the success of the programme, performance and achievement of targets and if increased funds become available, utilising the negotiated procedure. The estimated value includes all applicable taxes and tenderers should include all applicable taxes in their tenders. Additional funds, may be provided by DFID, other donors, or a combination of donors.

Please note that the estimated value of 60 500 000 GBP, represents a maximum for the combined phase 1 and phase 2, and DFID expects that competitive tenders based on the full Terms of Reference (Volume 3 of the ITT Pack) will come in at a lower level for the phase 1 requirement only.

The main recipient of the services will be Government of Bangladesh.

Delivery may require visits to both fragile and non-fragile regions with the supplier(s) responsible for the Duty of Care for their staff and any third party sub-contractors.

A hybrid payment by results model will be used for effective implementation of the PPEPP programme and will link to achievement of agreed KPI’s and milestones. Key performance indicators will link delivery of targets to an agreed payment schedule.

A DFID standard service contract will be awarded.

Scale up/down is provided for in ToR and contract clauses to allow flexibility to respond to emerging needs.
