Aquity Innovations NPC
REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL: AQUITY 07 /2020-2021
Background and Introduction
AQUITY Innovations NPC has been appointed by the National Department of Health to serve as one of the GLOBAL FUND TB Sub-Recipients (SRs) in South Africa. The project activities are implemented in Mpumalanga (Ehlanzeni district) and Eastern Cape provinces (OR Tambo and Buffalo City Metro districts). Amongst other interventions, the program seeks to improve TB testing at community level.
AQUITY Innovations NPC, through this grant, is procuring 3 Xray containers to be stationed in selected facilities in OR Tambo District. One of the containers will have a GeneXpert Machine (16 Modules) for TB Testing diagnostic activities to be conducted at site level. The purpose of the Request for Proposals (RFP) is to invite potential bidders, who are registered laboratories, to submit proposals for the provision of human resources (secondment of their staff) to run the diagnostics at this location. This staff will be responsible for GeneXpert testing at site. All consumables will be provided by AQUITY,
In order to increase testing, we anticipate that this container will move between Port St Johns, Mthlontlo and Ingquza Hill for case finding. We further estimate that it will be in each area a minimum of 2 months. Bidders are therefore encouraged to factor relevant travel and accommodation costs for their proposed staff when drafting their cost proposal (See note 8 of this TOR).
Bidders must be fully registered to provide diagnostic services with relevant authorities. Preference will be given to bidders already operating in OR Tambo District.
