The Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council (WSSCC) established the Global Sanitation Fund (GSF) to provide grant support to scale up successful sanitation and hygiene approaches targeting poor people in areas of greatest need. WSSCC, together with the Programme Coordinating Mechanism (PCM) in Tanzania, developed a GSF programme proposal for a number of activities to achieve the objectives of increasing sanitation coverage and improving hygienic behaviours. The WSSCC Secretariat is hosted by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The procurement process and contractual conditions will be in accordance with UNOPS rules and procedures.
The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and WSSCC invites qualified firms/organisations to submit proposals in the role of Executing Agency (EA) and Country Programme Monitor, respectively, for the GSF grant programme in Tanzania. The application deadline for proposals to be the Country Programme Monitor is 30 April 2012. The application deadline for proposals to be the Executing Agency is 21 May 2012.
