Overview :

UPDATED ON 21st March. MINUTES OF SITE VISIT AND BIDDER'S MEETING HAVE NOW BEEN POSTED

 

The Medicines Control Authority of Zimbabwe (MCAZ) is the statutory body responsible for the regulation of medicines and allied substances in Zimbabwe. The activities of MCAZ include:

  • Evaluation and registration of medicines and allied substances
  • Control of manufacture, distribution and storage of medicines
  • Inspections and post market surveillance
  • Quality control and testing of medicines and medical devices
  • Approval of medical devices.

The MCAZ laboratory is WHO prequalified to perform some physical and chemical analyses. The Microbiology Laboratory is part of the Microbiology and Medical Devices Unit and includes the Medical Devices Laboratory. The laboratory is already implementing the ISO/IEC/17025 Quality Management standards but however desires to be prequalified by WHO.

In order to conform to the WHO standards for a Microbiology laboratory, it has been proposed that the existing Microbiology laboratory be renovated/ redesigned and or reconstructed so as to conform to the WHO standards. With funding from the Global Fund, UNDP is undertaking the lead to ensure that the laboratory meets this requirement.

The required works to be conducted have been divided into; a) Main works and b) works to be conducted in the Sterility room. UNDP has opted to tender these works separately under tender’s reference HIST-03-2017 (main works) and HIST-04-2017 (Sterile/Clean room) respectively.  It is envisaged, however, that a degree of coordination will be required between awarded contractors to ensure cost effective, timely and satisfactory completion of the works required to achieve the WHO prequalification of the Microbiology laboratory.
