How we do business

UNDP Lao PDR procures goods and services through competitive solicitations. The following methods are used for the procurement of goods and services.

Request for Quotation (RFQ):

Evaluation of offers:

Depending on the procurement method, different factors take on the key role in the evaluation process. When evaluating RFQs and ITBs, the price is the most important element. In contrast to this, RFP requires a technical evaluation. The technical component primarily determines whether the proposal will be accepted or declined. Additionally, UNDP evaluates its products and services based on the following criteria:The most flexible and least formal method that is applied for procuring goods, services and/or works. RFQs call for a written quotation. RFQ applies to contracts exceeding US$2,500 but less than US$100,000.

Invitation to Bid (ITB):

An ITB is normally used whenever the entity is not required to propose technical approaches to a project activity, or to offer management or supervision of an activity. ITBs are used when the entity is to provide its cost requirements to meet precise specifications sought from UNDP. This is normally the case when UNDP buys goods. It may also apply to work contracts and services that can be expressed quantitatively and qualitatively. ITB applies to contracts exceeding $100,000.

Request for Proposal (RFP):

RFP is used when the inputs and/or outputs cannot be quantitatively and qualitatively expressed at the time the invitation is made, as for example when consulting or similar services are sought. A RFP may also be used for purchase of complex goods when you are not sure of the functional specifications and wish to seek proposals. RFP applies to contracts exceeding $100,000.
