Introduction : SCOPE OF TENDER

UNDP Istanbul Regional Hub is implementing EU funded project: “European Union for Improving Environmental Monitoring in the Black Sea (EU4EMBLAS). The project activities include also collection of new data sets, covering new monitoring parameters with use of innovative techniques for identification of chemical contaminants, such as wide-scope screening (target) or suspect screening (non-target).

The destruction of Nova Kakhovka dam on 6 June 2023, located on the Dnipro River, resulted in an unprecedented release of chemical, physical and biological contaminants to the Black Sea waters. Within the first week after the incident, the flood wave reached the Black Sea (12-13 June 2023). To assess the impact of the pollution on the Black Sea, EU4EMBLAS project, in cooperation with the project partner institution UkrSCES are arranging collection of the samples of surface waters and sediments and groundwaters in the Kherson region – Kakhovka area and consequent samples analyses for content of contaminants.

There is a need to arrange for prompt laboratory analyses of all samples already collected (stored at UkrSCES temporarily) or to be collected within coming weeks. Therefore, UNDP is seeking for a specialised environmental company / laboratory to carry out analyses of samples by the state-of-the-art methodologies and provide the following services:

  • Transporting samples from Odesa, UkrSCES institute to EU laboratories as relevant;
  • Analysis of metals and organic pollutants - wide-scope target screening >2,400 pollutants, suspect screening >95,000 pollutants in EU laboratories;
  • Providing the results of analyses with metadata in the format of Data Collection Templates compatible with Information Platform for Chemical Monitoring of the European Commission (IPCHEM) and the NORMAN Database System (;
  • Preparing Final Analytical Report, within 3 months from sampling at the latest.
