|Overview : |
The Solomon Islands National Disaster Management Office (NDMO) is one of the key offices which plays major role in coordinating the disaster management in Solomon Islands. It also plays a vital role in coordinating humanitarian operations especially with the current COVID-19 pandemic. The current NDMO building is a warehouse which was turned into an office, after their original office building was demolished 5 years ago.
The NDMO office accommodates programmes, camp management (quarantine sites management) and the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC). Given the high rate of COVID-19 infections amongst staff in January 2022, the NEOC component was moved to Mendana Hotel conference room temporarily to allow for decontamination to take place at the NDMO building at Ranadi.
Due to change in the operating context, the NEOC at Mendana operation was scaled down on 31 March 2022 with all staff now operating back at the NDMO premises at Ranadi. Based on this shifting of staff and given the high risk of additional COVID-19 transmission, the NDMO has requested UNDP IDRM project to do alterations to the current office layout to allow for more circulation of air. This request was also raised during the IDRM project board meeting of 18 March and was approved with budget already allocated.
This Request for Quotation (RFQ) is to solicit for suppliers of the renovation of the current glazing windows, installation of a new exterior door, repair of the existing interior door separating the main front office from the NEOC, installation of a consultation counter and partitioning of additional 2 rooms.
Deadline for the Submission of Quotation: 15 June 2022, +11hrs
