The Cayman Islands Ministry of Health, Sports Youth & Culture is looking for contract bids related to an integrated solid waste management system.

Interested firms are required to meet the eligibility criteria which are included as PASS/ FAIL issues in the evaluation section of the tender documents. Particular attention will be paid to prior experience and the consultants’ technical capability to complete the work. Particular attention will be paid to the provision of an integrated service by the consultancy team.

Tender documents can be collected in person at the Cayman Islands Public Lobby Reception Counter, Government Administration Building, 133 Elgin Avenue, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Alternatively, proponents may gain electronic access to the Tender ftp site by completing the application form here.

Proponents should carefully review the tender documents and include the method of communications during the RFP period, the information and deliverables required to be submitted, and the assessment criteria and evaluation methodology.
