Bosnian RFP for Air Traffic Management (Jan. 19)

Bosnia and Herzegovina (“BiH”) has applied for a loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (“the Bank”) purchase of air navigation, communication and meteorological equipment, software and training services to support the establishment of a new Air Navigation Services Provider which would take over the control of the intermediate and lower air space in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The project has a total estimated cost of Euro 14.4 million for works, goods and consultancy services, proposed to be financed by the EBRD and BiH and will require the procurement of the following goods, works and services for:

-- acquisition of the necessary equipment for supporting provision of navigation, communications and meterological services;

-- preparation of specific three-dimension maps (WGS 84) and related SID/STAR procedures (Standard Instrument Departure / Standard Terminal Arrival Route);

-- training services for future BiH Air Navigation Service Provider (“BHANSP”) staff, especially for air traffic controllers; and

-- construction of Area Control Centre, MSSR building with tower and other civil works.

Contracts to be financed with the proceeds of the loan from the Bank will be subject to the Bank's Procurement Policies and Rules and will be open to firms from any country. The proceeds of the Bank's loan will not be used for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations or under a law or official regulation of the Purchaser's country.

Tendering for any goods, works and services is expected to start in June 2005 and will run through to December 2005.

The project team of the BiH Directorate for Civil Avation (BHDCA) will be assisted by a team of consultants financed by a grant from USTDA.
