27 March 2014

 

UNFPA EECA Office staff in Istanbul travels frequently to achieve its operational, programme and project activities.

UNFPA EECARO in Istanbul plans to establish a Long Term Agreement for up to two years with a single qualified vendor for the provision of “Travel Services”, to ensure best value for money.

The vendor shall provide high quality services and prompt and accurate professional support services to staff of the EECARO in full compliance with this Terms of Reference.

The indicative annual forecast of business volumes for travel tickets of UNFPA EECARO office in Istanbul, is estimated to be around USD 230,000. It should be noted that this is an indicative forecast only, shared in good faith by UNFPA, and implies no commitment of minimum purchase on the part of UNFPA or other UN Agencies.

Official travels include, but are not limited to:

  • Official missions by UNFPA staff, Government and counterparts
  • Appointment and repatriation of staff and family members
  • Home leaves and educational leaves

Private travel services are not covered within the scope of the contract to be awarded. However, the Contractor is not precluded from handling private requests for service, only on the understanding that at no time this is to interfere with a timely and efficient delivery of service for the official travel.
