Providing Public Toilets across Freetown
The lack of public toilets in Freetown is a great inconvenience to its citizens, especially women. Furthermore, it contributes to poor levels of sanitation and cleanliness, which in turn pose significant health hazards. As part of its long-term urban planning strategy, Freetown City Council is seeking to build permanent public toilets in select locations across the city. However, given the immediate and pressing needs, the Council is seeking to establish mobile/portable toilets as an interim solution.
- OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE OF WORK
Freetown City Council is requesting expressions of interest to set-up and operates mobile/portable public toilets across the city. A range of sites will be selected by the Council, including in the CBD and market areas.
- COMMERCIAL TERMS
Involved parties will have license to set-up and operate these public toilets for 18 months. Usage fees may be charged, although these must be agreed by Freetown City Council and subject to a quarterly review.
Within their expressions of interest, interested parties should include a high-level financial proposal that includes estimates of usage fees required.
- QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCE
Experience providing sanitation services in Africa is preferred.
DOCUMENTS REQUIRED FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
As part of the application process, all interested parties are required to submit:
- A technical proposal
- A high-level financial proposal, including usage fee estimates
- CVs outlining the experience of the proposed team
- Case studies of previous projects, including key metrics.
Closing date for the submission of the Expression of Interest will be on the 19th September 2018 at 12:00pm. Any Expression of Interest after this date and time will be automatically disqualified.
