1 Introduction
1.1 Background
1.1.1 Introduction to UNHCR
The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on
December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead
and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems
worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard rights and well-being of refugees. It also has
a mandate to help stateless people.
In more than five decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people to restart their
lives. Today, staff of UNHCR is providing assistance to about 17 millions of refugees and 51
millions of forcibly displaced people in more than in 125 countries. For further information
about UNHCR, its mandate and operations, please visit www.unhcr.org
1.1.2 Introduction to UNHCR Fleet Management
An analysis of the UNHCR vehicle fleet conducted in 2011 identified a large annual overhead
of operating costs, issues with asset control and risks to staff safety in the field. The analysis
report made recommendations to restructure vehicle fleet management within the
organization under a Global Fleet Management (GFM) function.
The High Commissioner launched the Global Fleet Management Project (GFM) in 2013 with
the following aim:
To provide UNHCR field offices and operations with appropriate, costeffective, safe vehicles and professional fleet management services to
support optimum programme delivery.
The Global Fleet Management function has been providing support to field operations since
January 2014. The provision of appropriate maintenance and repair services for UNHCR
vehicles is a key component of this strategy.
GFM delivers fleet management support to UNHCR field operations including the provision
of vehicles through an internal rental scheme. The rental scheme is an arrangement that
enables the risks and benefits of ownership to reside with GFM centrally and where the
client operations only pay for actual use of the rented vehicles. Each field operation budgets
the rental cost within their annual budget for as long as the vehicles are required. When a
particular vehicle is no longer required, the vehicle may be returned to the rental pool and
Page 4 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

payment will cease. The GFM will manage all surplus vehicles and redeploy or dispose of
them in whichever way is the most cost effective and beneficial to UNHCR.
To date, the following tasks have been implemented by GFM:

Organizing a centralized, global fleet management function in the Headquarters;

Introducing a global policy and operational processes on fleet management;

Introducing an internal vehicle rental scheme;

Providing global insurance for all UNHCR vehicles;

Introducing fleet management software;

Installing vehicle tracking systems in all rented vehicles;

Disposing of existing vehicles surplus.


The 5-year GFM strategy includes the following core projects:
1.
Global Fleet Rental and Insurance
2014-2015
2.
Maintenance and Repair
2015-2016
3.
Power Generating Equipment
2016-2017
4.
Fuel Management
2017-2018

1.2 Statement of Purpose & Objectives


The purpose of this RFP is to identify reliable service providers that would assist UNHCR
with the implementation of the global Maintenance and Repair project.
GFM of UNHCR invites qualified suppliers, manufacturers and service providers to make a
firm offer for the establishment of a Frame Agreement for provision of field services for
Maintenance and Repair of UNHCR Motorized Assets.
For purpose of the intended project, the term Asset refers to any UNHCR owned motorized
piece of equipment. In the UNHCR Asset Management system, items with an acquisition
value of more than USD 10,000 fall into the PPE (Power, Plant & Equipment) category, while
any UNHCR owned motorized piece of equipment with an acquisition value between USD
5,000 and USD 10,000 fall into the STI (Serial Tracked Item) category.
This RFP enables potential service providers to submit offers in the required format and on
time that best meet UNHCRs objectives. In addition, it describes how such offers will be
evaluated and sets out the way in which any necessary communications between potential
providers and UNHCR should be handled. UNHCR is not seeking a compilation of standard
materials and marketing collateral, thus, relevance and quality, rather than quantity should
be considered while offers are being assembled.
UNHCR wishes to emphasize that the information contained herein is intended to establish
an efficient and fair evaluation process for comparison of offers on a like for like basis. Thus,
Page 5 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

potential service providers shall make an effort to prepare their submissions in line with
requirements set in this RFP.
Content of the submitted offer can be considered as integral part of the intended contract. By
no financial or legal means, UNHCR can be held liable or restricted for using any part of the
communicated offers freely for evaluation purposes in accordance with UNHCR
procurement rules.

1.3 Strategic GFM Objectives


Under GFM the implementation of quality maintenance and repair processes for UNHCR
motorised assets will allow the organization to achieve the benefits outlined below. The offer
of the potential service provider should explain how the proposed services will address the
strategic objectives of GFM.
1.3.1 Improve utilization and availability of UNHCR vehicles
UNHCR used to spend substantial funds every year on vehicle acquisition and fleet
operations. Through its activities, GFM aims to reduce both the capital cost of vehicles as
well as the operational costs. The capital cost is being reduced through optimising
procurement and maximising disposal revenues. Operating efficiencies can be achieved
through improved utilisation of the fleet, reduction of the fleet size and lowering the age of
the fleet, which leads to reduction of maintenance and repair costs.
At the end of 2013 UNHCR had a combined fleet of more than 6,000 vehicles, with
approximately 5,700 of these being light vehicles. The average age of the light vehicle fleet
was approximately 6 years. By the end of 2018 all UNHCR light vehicles older than 5 years
will be disposed of. The recommended maximum vehicle lifetime for UNHCR light vehicles is
set now to 5 years, which will result in an average age of the fleet of 2.5 years. A younger and
better managed fleet will require less maintenance and repair (reduced vehicle downtime)
and therefore the vehicles will spend a smaller proportion of time off-the-road (fewer
unscheduled maintenance events).
As a consequence of the above, the organization will achieve the greater vehicle availability
to support its operations.
1.3.2 Cost Reduction
Through implementation of standardized processes, the total cost of maintenance and repair
will be significantly reduced. This is seen by GFM as a major factor that contributes to
optimization of the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) of the UNHCR fleet. The following benefits
will be realized as a result of the project implementation:
o Lower expenditure on maintenance & spare parts;
o Higher residual values for end-of-life motorised assets;
o Fewer high-cost mechanical failures;
o Reduced spare part stock level;
o Improved fuel consumption.
Page 6 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

UNHCR would like to learn from the potential service provider if cost reduction measures
are proposed. In this regard UNHCR expects the bidders to provide pricing that is
competitive and will result in cost savings.
1.3.3 Improve Road Safety
Road traffic accidents are the leading cause of death and injury to UN staff worldwide. 1
UNHCR recognises the importance of road safety in preventing casualties among non-United
Nations civilians and United Nations personnel.
UNHCR supports measures taken by the Secretary-General and the United Nations system to
enhance road safety, which includes training and initiatives to promote road safety.2
GFM, with the support of other stakeholders is developing a road safety system which
combines building the staff awareness, providing training, improving the vehicle
management and journey planning, etc.
The UNHCR road safety system also aims at:
o Establishing effective data management and accident reporting to allow the
identification of the underlying causes behind accidents, via the compulsory insurance
scheme;
o Improving the management of drivers and vehicles;
o Addressing speeding by means of the vehicle tracking system;
o Reducing the number of vehicle breakdowns during field missions;
o Avoidance of use of mechanically unsafe vehicles.
Consistent with the UNs approach to improving vehicle safety, GFM is also seeking to
increase the availability of vehicle safety features by updating the standard vehicle models
and introducing appropriate maintenance and repair practices.
Should the service provider wish to address the road safety, UNHCR would like to learn how
success will be measured.
1.3.4 Minimize the Environmental Impact
Minimisation of the environmental impact is part of the GFM fleet management strategy. It
includes use of cleaner vehicles and fuels, reducing emissions, as well as providing training
to improve utilization of vehicles with the aim to achieve fuel efficiency.
As with other mentioned objectives of GFM, the Maintenance and Repair project will help to
minimize the environmental impact of UNHCR vehicles by reducing emissions and
improving waste management.
GFM would like to know whether the potential service provider has introduced and
implemented policies regarding the environment, in particular to improving waste
management such as the disposal of used oils, batteries and tires amongst others.

2 Requirements
The Technical Offer should follow the structure and logic of the present RFP. You are
strongly advised to follow this recommendation when constructing your offers.

2.1 Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets and its Core


Requirements
To achieve the outlined above objectives, the future service provider is requested to develop
and implement a flexible business model to ensure that all UNHCR vehicles in the field can
receive appropriate and effective maintenance and repair services. This will lower
operating costs, reduce vehicle downtime and at the same time will provide transparency to
fleet costs and performance data (as described above in the Strategic GFM Objectives
chapter 1.3).
Provision of timely and competent vehicle servicing to the UNHCR field operations is often
problematic due to a number of reasons. The following tasks will allow the future service
provider to resolve these problems and help achieving the outlined Objectives.

2.2

Repair Facilities

Currently the UNHCR fleet is serviced and maintained through the following options:
By commercial enterprises, which are mainly present in capital cities. This includes
manufacturers authorised service providers, such as Toyota or Nissan dealers,
and non-authorized workshops;
By Implementing Partners of UNHCR, mainly in locations where commercial
enterprises are not available;
By UNHCR offices themselves, mainly in deep field locations with small numbers
of vehicles.
In all the above cases provenance of spare-parts and quality assurance can be uncertain.

2.3

Business Processes and Skills

Another deliverable for the project will be establishing of the missing skills and business
processes that are required for the successful project implementation. The potential service
provider should analyse the existing business processes used by UNHCR for maintenance
and repair, and propose optimization or introduction of additional business processes.
Training could be considered as one of the options to establish required skills that may not
be sufficient or available at the moment.
Basic vehicle maintenance training of UNHCR staff may be required in some remote field
locations where it will not be economical to set up a fully-fledged workshop. In many cases
these locations will be far away from the capital cities. In order to avoid unnecessary travel
Page 9 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

of to be serviced vehicles to capital cities, UNHCR would like the potential service provider
to provide basic mechanical training (mainly practical training, e.g. changing engine oil and
filters, light bulbs, brake pads, etc.) to staff in these remote locations. It is not foreseen that
the training session will take longer than two days and one trainer should suffice to train the
number of relevant staff on site. Training material to support the sessions will be required.
A minimal amount of generic guidance on vehicle repair and maintenance is already
provided in Chapter 8 of the UNHCR Supply Manual3, however the degree of compliance is
unknown and there appears to be only a low appreciation of the value of preventative
maintenance. Preventive maintenance consists of scheduled servicing, inspections, and
vehicle repairs to prevent potential problems and maximize vehicle availability.

2.4 Life-Cycle Management and End of Life Processes


Since the prospective service provider is expected to manage the end-to-end supply chain of
spare parts, it will then be the responsibility of the selected service provider to establish and
maintain respective Life-Cycle management and End-of-Life (EOL) processes applicable to
spare parts.

2.5 Optimization of Business Processes


The process optimization should become one of the central managerial activities supporting
implementation of the project. Since there is no uniform approach in UNHCR to repair and
maintenance, GFM is expecting from the selected service provider to analyse the current
processes and prepare comprehensive recommendations to improve or establish required
business processes. Thus, the Service Catalogue will be one of the deliverables of the project.

2.6 Total Cost of Ownership


As a general rule, the main costs related to the vehicle fleet operation are allocated according
to the proportions in the graphic below:

Chapter 8, Part 5: PPE Management, Section 3: PPE Preparation Use, Maintenance & Repair (Annex 8)
Page 10 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

Currently, the cost of assets in UNHCR is not maximized and maintenance costs are relatively
high. With implementation of the Maintenance and Repair Project, GFM would like to align
the costs as per above diagram.

2.7 Spare Parts Management


Closely linked to the provision of maintenance and repair is the supply of spare parts. Spare
parts management, from ordering, inventory control and recording of use is a highly
complex task. Evidence would suggest that there are significant inefficiencies in the way in
which the organisation manages the spare part supply chain.
Difficult access to competent maintenance and repair facilities, extended and fragile spareparts supply chains, an ageing and oversized vehicle fleet and low levels of fleet management
competence in the field combine to create a sub-optimal environment for effective vehicle
maintenance and repair. The impact to the organisation is a higher than necessary vehicle
breakdown frequency, resulting in disruption to operations as well as avoidable costs.
Currently, all UNHCR motorised assets receive some level of periodic maintenance and
repair. The frequency and quality of maintenance services and spare parts and lubricants
used is uncertain.

2.8 Project Scale


As per below graph, all UNHCR light vehicles should be part of the rental scheme by the end
of 2018. Part of the ongoing process is to right-size the fleet from approximately 6,000
currently to around 4.500 vehicles by the end of 2018.

All the rental vehicles are subject to maintenance and repair processes that will be
established during the implementation of the intended project.
Also, all the rental vehicles of UNHCR are equipped with tracking devices. Installation,
maintenance and troubleshooting of vehicle tracking devices in field locations will be
performed by the selected service provider as part of the standard service package. For
more information about the UNHCR Vehicle Tracking System (VTS), please refer to chapter
2.23; Vehicle Tracking System.
Given the global scale of operations, UNHCR recognizes the fact that the potential service
provider may not have adequate presence in every capital or field location. For this reason,
the potential service provider can consider subcontracting requested services, if necessary.
The Annex 1 provides reference to the current country operations of UNHCR. The list also
includes names of UNHCR partners (contact details of the UNHCR partners can be provided
upon request) that are currently involved into vehicle maintenance and repair activities.
The Annex 2 provides reference to current field locations in each country. In some of these
field locations UNHCR may have no local partners present to maintain UNHCR vehicles. It is
then the responsibility of the potential service provider to analyse all the information
provided and propose a comprehensive global approach to maintenance and repair of
UNHCR vehicles in all locations.

2.9 Project Roll-Out Plan


UNHCR will, together with the successful service provider, develop the project
implementation plan. Since UNHCR is present in more than 100 countries with
approximately 270 office locations, the project implementation will require a staged
approach. It is proposed to implement the maintenance and repair project as follows:
Page 12 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

2016
2017
2018

1 big, 1 medium and 1 small operation. This represents approx. 10% of the entire
UNHCR light vehicle fleet;
All locations with a fleet exceeding 100 vehicles. This represents approx. 50% of
the entire UNHCR light vehicle fleet;
All operational locations to be included into the maintenance and repair project;

Please see Annex 3, which provides reference to the UNHCR Fleet size by location. This list
includes all light vehicles UNHCR operates at this moment (GFM rental as well as owned by
country operations).
UNHCRs preference is to establish a contract with a single provider, however, given the
magnitude of the project UNHCR will also consider split award and offers for services
provided at regional level. Please complete the table in Annex 2 to confirm which regions are
covered in your proposal.
After coming to an understanding of the UNHCR project requirements and performing the
scope analysis, the potential service provider is encouraged to propose an alternative
implementation plan as well. In either case, the end of 2018 should be considered as the
deadline for the overall project commissioning and signing off. Beyond this date all the
developed and implemented project components and processes should function in the
business-as-usual mode. By this date all the country operations should be included into the
new maintenance and repair scheme.
The project scale and scope may increase overtime. For instance, country offices may be
allowed to service their own (non-rental) vehicles through the GFM maintenance and repair
setup, provided they comply with conditions and requirements outlined in this RFP. The
Future Scope of Work Chapter 2.25 provides more details on services that can be requested
by UNHCR in addition to the current requirements.

2.10 Service Management


UNHCR is using FleetWave, the fleet management solution developed by Chevin
(www.chevinfleet.com), for centralized management of all fleet-related processes in UNHCR.
FleetWave provides UNHCR with a comprehensive overview of the Total Cost of
Ownership (TCO) of its fleet. The contracted service provider will be given a required access
to FleetWave software of UNHCR to perform related data entry and maintain other related
processes as required. Development of an interface for automated data transfer from an
existing Service Management Software of the potential service provider to FleetWave may
become a requirement. It is the expectation of UNHCR that the service provider will develop
specifications of such an interface and implement it in cooperation with Chevin at no
additional cost to UNHCR.
Page 13 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

When submitting an offer to this RFP, please indicate whether your company is willing to
comply with this requirement.
All maintenance and repair processes of UNHCR should be managed in FleetWave through
the Job Card feature. The number of vehicles due for maintenance in each location will be
communicated to the service provider in the dashboard of FleetWave. The service
provider would then contact the custodian office of UNHCR to agree on the date to perform
the maintenance. Once the vehicle is delivered to the workshop, the service provider staff
would create a Job Card for the vehicle and specify all the requirements to be done for the
specific vehicle. After completion of all the intended works, the service provider will close
the Job Card. This will allow the custodian office to certify the performed maintenance in
FleetWave. By having the office certification in FleetWave, GFM will be able to settle an
invoice related to the specific Job Card (inclusive spare parts, labour, mission cost, if any).
Every Job card should also have a complete set of supporting documents attached (such as
approved mission request forms, air-tickets, invoices, etc.).
FleetWave enables the service provider to request the country UNHCR office to deliver a
vehicle for service based on current odometer readings. Repair requests, however, will be
communicated to the service provider by the UNHCR focal point in the country operation.
The repair Job Card process will be identical to the maintenance scenario described above.

2.11 Warranty and Guarantee Periods


The potential service provider has to describe warranty and guarantee conditions applicable
to provided services and delivered components as per the scope of this project.

2.12 Engineering and Manufacturing Services


The potential service provider may be required to provide ad-hoc engineering and
manufacturing services of custom parts and components related to vehicles, generators, VTS
and radio installations. The potential service provider should confirm feasibility to comply
with this requirement.

2.13 Provisioning of Related Services and Items


The selected service provider may be requested to deliver services or goods that are not
explicitly mentioned in this RFP that are associated with the maintenance and repair of
motorized assets. In either case, the written approval of UNHCR is required for provisioning
of any related services or items.

2.15 Field Service Management (FSM) Software


At this stage, GFM is not planning to use any tools besides its ERP system and FleetWave
for the project control. However, if the potential service provider is already using any
specialized Field Service Management (FSM) software, GFM would like to receive a general
presentation on this software for purposes of familiarization.

2.16 Payment for Services


Submission of related invoices to GFM should be done once a month on an agreed schedule.
Payment of invoices for closed and certified Job Cards will be performed by GFM in batches
within 30 days after receiving the invoices (as per General UNHCR Terms and Conditions).
Related services, approved by GFM outside of the outlined scope, such as training sessions,
should be invoiced separately. All submitted invoices should be accompanied by a complete
set of supporting documents (travel authorizations, air tickets, etc.).
The submitted offer must contain description of the proposed payment schedule.
UNHCR will not accept invoices for services provided out of the contract scope or in cases
when a fault has been attributed to:
-

imputable behavior of the contractor staff;


faults in contractors workmanship;
non-compliance with agreed processes, procedures or with installation/service
manuals;
non-compliance with the industry best practices and regulations for installation,
maintenance and troubleshooting;
violation of safety and security regulations by the contractor staff;
non-compliance with travel-related instructions, regulations or schedules.

2.17 Contract Duration


The intention is to make a contract award with an initial duration of three (3) years,
potentially extendable for a maximum of two (2) periods of up to one (1) year each.

2.18 Termination of the Agreement


If the contract is terminated, the contracted service provider has to agree to transfer all
established business processes in full to UNHCR and to the subsequent service provider in
order to guarantee continuity of the established UNHCR maintenance and repair activities
worldwide.
When submitting the offer, the potential service provider should detail exit strategies
applicable to scenarios of the contract termination and its due expiration.

2.19 Global Fleet Management Vehicle Catalogue


From the 1st of January 2014 all new vehicles for UNHCR operations and partners are

It has to be noted that the above accounts for over 90% of the delivered vehicles, in case of
emergencies or special instances, the GFM can procure vehicles outside of the above table.
Vehicle models procured over the past 12 months are, amongst others, Peugeot 508, Dacia
Duster, Toyota Hilux and Toyota Landcruiser 200 series.
The potential service provider should confirm it can service and repair all the models listed
above as well as any other vehicle procured by UNHCR.

2.20 Approved Repair Items for Vehicles


UNHCR has established a closed list of jobs/components that do not require GFM
authorization for Maintenance, Repair or Replacement (Ref: Annex 4) on rental (GFM)
vehicles. Any other repair job outside of this scope will require GFM authorization. The
following information should be provided to GFM with a request for such an authorization:

Make and model of the vehicle


Barcode (asset ID) of the vehicle
Page 16 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets

Year of manufacturing
Odometer reading
Estimated repair cost in USD
An authorization to proceed with the requested repair will be made by GFM within 3
working days.
The repair jobs, listed to in the Annex 4, do not require such an approval from GFM and can
be performed by the selected service provider in accordance with the A and B service
intervals defined in the Annex 6.
The potential service provider is requested to confirm that maintenance & repair will be
performed as per the manufacturers' flat rate times.
Potential service provider can review and propose modifications of the list referred to in
Annex 4.

2.21 Sourcing and Pricing of Spare Parts


When quoting prices for OEM spare parts (Annex B) the potential service provider is
requested to break down the quotes as per the OEM catalogue listed price (CLP) + handling
charge. Besides quoting prices of spare parts listed in the Annex B, a full price list of OEM
spare parts should be submitted.

2.22 Optimizing the Existing Stock of Spare Parts


With the above introduction of requiring approval for the majority of repair works, it is
obvious that the existing spare parts stocks will have quite a number of obsolete spare parts.
As a result of this new organizational policy, UNHCR will request the successful service
provider to identify such dead stocks. The identified obsolete spare parts will be auctioned
off through the established UNHCR Asset Management procedures. When submitting your
offer, please confirm willingness and capacity to perform this one-time exercise, and indicate

2.23 Vehicle Tracking System


The Vehicle Tracking System (VTS) project is one of the main components of the UNHCR
Global Fleet Management programme.
Every UNHCR rental vehicle is equipped with tracking devices to measure and improve
utilization of the fleet as well as to address issues related to safety and security of staff in
field locations. UNHCR is currently fitting tracking devices into rental vehicles in 3 global
vehicle hubs prior to shipment of those vehicles to customers in the field. The tracking
devices are operational and transmitting data upon arrival to the destination country. In
some cases, when rental vehicles acquired by GFM locally, the tracking devices are installed
Page 17 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

into locally procured vehicles either by UNHCR technicians or with help of agents of
Novacom Services, the UNHCR global provider of the vehicle tracking services
(www.novacom-services.com).
The current field network of available UNHCR and Novacom technicians is expanding but not
sufficient to respond timely to request for field installations, troubleshooting and
maintenance. Therefore, it is the intention of UNHCR is to source these field services from a
qualified global provider that will be engaged into maintenance of UNHCR rental vehicles.
The Annex 9 provider reference to technical specifications of the standard tracking device
that is currently used by UNHCR for vehicle tracking purposes. In 2016, a new model of the
tracking device will be introduced by Novacom, but support of the current one will be
provided until the end of 2019.
In the future, UNHCR is also planning to install the same tracking devices onto rental power
generators.
Currently, the field operations of UNHCR also have a possibility to equip their existing (nonrental) vehicles with tracking devices as well. Such retrospective installations of tracking
devices are also carried out at the moment either by UNHCR technicians or by agents of
Novacom. In the future, the selected service provider will also provide field installation,
troubleshooting and maintenance services of retrofitted tracking devices.
The potential service provider of the UNHCR maintenance and repair services should
confirm its interest to:
a) Provide maintenance and troubleshooting services for the tracking devices that are
already in operation (2,000 units in use by the end of August 2015; target number of
tracking devices installed in the rental fleet is 4,500 by the end of 2018);
b) Install new tracking devices in field locations as required and include them into the
overall maintenance and repair service portfolio;
c) Provide the same service level to tracking devices used for UNHCR power generating
equipment;
d) To ensure continuity of vehicle tracking services provided to the UNHCR field
operations, the successful service provider may be requested to perform firmware
upgrade of tracking devices. Such work may be necessary to perform on individual
assets, groups of assets or globally;
e) In addition, UNHCR may request the selected service provider to modify
configuration of the UNHCR software platform for vehicle tracking on a periodic
Page 18 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

basis. This would include initial configuration of the software platform when the
vehicle tracking project is commissioned in a country operation, as well as periodic
changes of the configuration to align it with modified operational context (more/less
vehicles in the country, custodian change, different requirements for reporting and
alerting, etc.). Thus, the potential service provider shall confirm its readiness to
perform this task;
f) Optionally, perform installation, programming, troubleshooting, firmware upgrade,
maintenance and repair of vehicular radio transceivers. The installation manuals can
be sent to the potential service provider upon request.
UNHCR purchases and supplies tracking devices globally as needed. The selected service
provider will have access to the required number of tracking devices and spare parts
supplied by GFM to each country operation as necessary. If needed, UNHCR will organize an
appropriate technical training session for a selected group of service providers technicians
to enable the company to carry out the outlined range of tasks.

2.24 Approved Repair Items for Vehicle Tracking System


Any maintenance and repair of tracking devices does not require GFM authorization unless a
malfunctioning tracking terminal, or any of its components, is proven to be beyond repair
and has to be replaced. In cases when faulty tracking terminals have to be replaced with new
ones, the following information should be provided to GFM when submitting requests for
authorization:

Make and model of the vehicle


Barcode (asset ID) of the vehicle
Registration Number Plate of the vehicle
Current custodian office of the vehicle

Brief description of the technical problem with the tracking device and
troubleshooting steps taken;

2.25 Future Scope of Work


The scope of the maintenance and repair project for rental light vehicles is planned to be
expanded in the future. The extended project scope includes:
Power generators (2016-2017);
Non-rental vehicles (UNHCR operation owned);
Specialized vehicles (trucks, buses, earth moving equipment);
Motorcycles.
UNHCR is also planning to start implementing the fuel management project in 2017-2018,
possibly, outside of the maintenance and repair project. By adding the accurate fuel data
captured in FleetWave, the organization will be able to generate comprehensive global
reports on Total Cost of fleet Ownership.
When submitting the offer, the potential service provider should confirm interest in
developing projects for UNHCR within the future scope of work.

2.26 Power Generators


The service provider should confirm willingness and capacity to extend the service portfolio
to additional projects outlined above in the Future Scope of Work Chapter 2.25, and to the
power generating equipment in particular.
Many UNHCR operations are heavily relying on their own power generating capacity. About
80% of required electrical energy UNHCR is sourcing by using power generators. Generators
of electrical power provide energy to UNHCR offices, staff accommodation, water pumps,
mission critical installations such as ICT systems, etc.
The main objectives of the generator project are as follows:
Include power generators into the UNHCR rental scheme in 2016-2017;
Ensure that the rental generators provide stable and reliable electrical power;
Establish standard installation and commissioning processes for rental generators;
Establish routine standard maintenance and repair processes for rental generators to
reduce the failure rate;
Optimize annual costs related to generator maintenance and fuelling;
Reduce pollution;
Establish basic user and service skills in the field;
Allow country offices to service their own (non-rental) generators through the
established mechanisms, provided the country offices are ready to comply with
conditions and requirements outlined in this RFP.

Page 20 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

To achieve the outlined above objectives, the prospective service provider is requested to
develop and implement a flexible business model to ensure that all UNHCR generators in the
field can receive appropriate and effective maintenance and repair services. It is the
intention of UNHCR to establish maintenance and repair processes for rental generators in
the same way as for rental vehicles.
The Annex 1 provides reference to the current country operations of UNHCR. The list also
includes names of UNHCR partners (contact details of the UNHCR partners can be provided
upon request) that are currently involved into generator maintenance and repair activities.
The Annex 2 provides reference to current field locations in each country. In some of these
field locations UNHCR may have no local partners present to maintain UNHCR generators. It
is then the responsibility of the potential service provider to analyse all the information
provided and propose a comprehensive global approach to maintenance and repair of
UNHCR generators in all locations.
If a potential service provider is interested in servicing and repairing power generators of
UNHCR, they should be ready to identify and correct gaps in technical expertise, issues with
spare part management, availability of maintenance and repair facilities, as well as
environmental hazards, once the contract has been awarded.

2.27 Approved Repair Items for Generators


UNHCR has established a closed list of jobs/components that do not require GFM
authorization for Maintenance, Repair or Replacement (Ref: Annex 5) on rental (GFM)
generators. Any other repair job outside of this scope will require GFM authorization. The
following information should be provided to GFM with a request for such an authorization:
Make and model of the generator
Barcode (asset ID) of the generator
Year of manufacturing
Current running hours
Estimated repair cost in USD
An authorization to proceed with the requested repair will be made by GFM within 3
working days.
The repair jobs, listed to in the Annex 5, do not require such an approval from GFM and can
be performed by the selected service provider in accordance with service schedules and
procedures that have to be developed by the service provider in accordance with
manufacturers recommendations.

Page 21 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

Potential service provider can review and propose modifications of the list referred to in

Annex 5.
The potential service provider is requested to confirm that maintenance & repair will be
performed as per the manufacturers' flat rate times (recommended repair services time for
each process).
When confirming the interest in servicing and repairing power generators, the potential
contractor should also review the Annex 7, which refers to UNHCR generator statistics.
Additional requirements:
2.25.1

In addition to maintenance and repair, the potential service provider should


confirm readiness to install, commission and decommission UNHCR generators.
For more information about this requirement, please refer to Chapter 2.28;
Generator Installation, Commissioning and Decommissioning.

2.25.2

The potential service provider is requested to propose a business solution that


would address emergency scenarios, such as a generator breakdown in a field
office, or fast expansion of the UNHCR operation in a given country. By proposing
the solution the potential service provider should be willing to implement it.
This solution may include prepositioning of a spare generator capacity sized to
the current scale of the UNHCR operation.
Where feasible, local offices of UNHCR may assist to the service provider with
importation and custom clearance processes as UNHCR is tax exempted.
Consignments cleared with assistance of UNHCR cannot be used or sold outside
the intended project.

2.25.3

The potential service provider is requested to propose solutions that could be


made available to any UNHCR operation to rapidly increase or, in case of closing
down an operation, decrease power generator capacity.
Based on the provided information received in the financial section of this RFP,
UNHCR will evaluate the feasibility to purchase this power generator equipment
from the potential service provider.

2.25.4

Propose a solution that allows any UNHCR office to scale the power output of its
generator power plants up or down dynamically depending on increase or
decrease of the infrastructure load.

Page 22 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

2.25.5

The potential service provider should also confirm willingness and capacity to
deploy, if needed, auxiliary systems and components, such as lightning protection,
grounding circuits, over-voltage and surge protection, voltage stabilizers,
interfaces with solar energy equipment or city power grid, etc.

2.25.6

Future project stages may require provision of maintenance and repair services to
UNHCR none-rental (existing) generators;

2.25.7

Post-installation services, besides preventive and corrective maintenance, should


consider inclusion of periodic assessment of the infrastructure load and
maintenance of electrical wiring.

2.28 Generator Installation, Commissioning and Decommissioning


The potential service provider should confirm willingness and capacity to install,
commission and decommission UNHCR generators. At this stage, the infrastructure works
are not part of the project scope (generators should only be connected to the Main
Distribution Board in each location). In case needed, the site preparation will be carried out
by the respective UNHCR office well ahead of the arrival of the power plant.
The works related to the power infrastructure of UNHCR facilities may come into the project
scope at a later stage. However, the service provider would need to survey the existing
infrastructure to size capacity of rental generators correctly prior to their installation. In
some locations UNHCR has local expertise to assist in this task.
Preparation of proper documentation and user training will be part of the commissioning
process.

2.29 Operation and Monitoring of Generators


All UNHCR rental generators will be equipped with tracking devices (similar to those
installed in UNHCR vehicles) for remote measurement of hours in operation, measuring the
load current, and other parameters. The UNHCR tracking system also allows switching off
the overloaded generators remotely. Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) will be
developed and issued to regulate such scenarios by defining roles and responsibilities of
UNHCR staff and the future provider of the maintenance and repair services.

Annex 8. UNHCR Manual, Chapter 8, Part 5: PPE Management, Section 3: PPE Preparation,
Use, Maintenance & Repair.
Introduction
Depending on requirements, maintenance or repair can be undertaken by an operator, a
UNHCR workshop or an external workshop. The different levels of maintenance and repair
are:
Preventive maintenance.
Simple corrective maintenance (repair).
Scheduled workshop maintenance and repair.
Responsibility
In many cases, Supply staff contract commercial workshops and/or other organisations to
conduct maintenance and repair work.
They also advise the custodians of the items and the maintenance service providers about
the manufacturer and maintenance and repair guidelines of UNHCR, schedules and
procedures.
Competitive service
Make the best use of funds allocated for maintenance and repair by:
Negotiating preferred customer discounts with workshops.
Obtaining firm quotations prior to authorising work to be done.
Preventing unnecessary charges.
Seeking competitive bids from different workshops (in the case of major overhauls), whilst
ensuring the quality of maintenance/repair works.
Common maintenance issues
Many maintenance problems are encountered in field operations. A few of the more common
problems to be aware of are as follows:
Using old vehicles with high mileage that are in poor condition.
Unavailability of adequate maintenance facilities resulting in use of unsuitable ones.
Poor preventive maintenance practice, such as not changing oil and other filters when
required.
Failure to inspect and service vehicles regularly.
Scarcity and high cost of locally purchased equipment, tools and spare parts.
Improvisation or welding broken parts.
Removal or switching parts from vehicles temporarily out of service.
Having too many types, makes and models of PPEs in use.
Cannibalisation of excessively worn parts and components from unserviceable vehicles.
Using badly worn or damaged tyres.
Abuse and damage of vehicles caused by unsafe driving.
Preventive maintenance should be performed at regular intervals as recommended
manufacturer or UNHCR manuals for operating in rugged conditions.
Page 48 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

Preventive maintenance
Preventive maintenance maximises the serviceable life of a PPE by preventing avoidable,
premature wear and failure. It involves inspecting and servicing vehicles and other PPEs
before they need to be repaired as follows:

Repair
Repair is undertaken after the vehicle or item has failed or has been damaged, and restores
the PPE back to serviceable condition.
It generally involves inspecting, testing and replacing defective parts or components. Harsh
operating environments, normal deterioration over time, improper use and abuse and poor
standards of preventive maintenance lead to frequent repair work.
Repair can be divided into:
Common corrective maintenance.
Scheduled workshop maintenance and repairs.
Common corrective maintenance and repair
Repairs are considered to be corrective action, if the PPE does not leave the operator and is
not officially sent to a workshop. These are generally small faults, as shown in the table
below.

Scheduled workshop maintenance and repair


Where scheduled maintenance is required for small to medium-size repairs, an arrangement
usually exists with an IP or commercial workshop to conduct the repairs.
Vehicles usually go to established workshops.
Generators and other non-vehicle PPEs are usually repaired in UNHCR workshops at the
local, regional or HQ level. In some cases, however repairs are outsourced.
Note: Where PPE has been given to IPs for Right of Use, the project agreement should not
include a budget line for equipment maintenance, spare parts, etc. if the maintenance is
possible to be undertaken using a UNHCR contracted/managed workshop.

Page 49 of 60

Field Maintenance & Repair of Motorized Assets


Terms of Reference

Mobile workshops
The usefulness of mobile workshops should be carefully assessed and will depend on the
machinery, equipment and spare parts they carry, as well as their operational range and
limitations related to dispersal of the vehicle fleet, local roads, geography and climate.
The availability of trained personnel to operate the servicing equipment should also be
considered.
Accident repair
Maintenance/repair will also be needed following an accident. In such cases, workshop staff
should only inspect the item, do a cost estimate and prepare a report. AMB decisions
determine whether or not repairs should be undertaken. Once an AMB has decided on
disposal and action is required by a workshop, equipment is delivered to a workshop.
If a repair cannot be undertaken, a manager should find someone else to do the job, through
three competitive pro forma bids. If this is not possible, a note for the file should be
submitted explaining the circumstances.
Issuing service/repair request
Follow the steps below to raise a service request and send a PPE item to a workshop for
repairs or maintenance:

Inspecting / evaluating work


Inspection and/or evaluation is required in the following circumstances:
If equipment needs regular maintenance.
A PPE that has been in an accident.
To confirm all required maintenance and repair work is done properly and no unnecessary
work was performed.

(UNHCR) and the Contractor shall also each be referred to as a Party hereunder, and:
1.1 Pursuant, inter alia, to the Charter of the United Nations and the Convention on the Privileges and Immunities
of the United Nations, UNHCR, as a subsidiary organ of the United Nations, has full juridical personality and
enjoys such privileges and immunities as are necessary for the independent fulfillment of its purposes.
1.2 The Contractor shall have the legal status of an independent contractor vis--vis UNHCR, and nothing
contained in or relating to the Contract shall be construed as establishing or creating between the Parties the
relationship of employer and employee or of principal and agent. The officials, representatives, employees, or
subcontractors of each of the Parties shall not be considered in any respect as being the employees or agents of
the other Party, and each Party shall be solely responsible for all claims arising out of or relating to its
engagement of such persons or entities.

2.

SOURCE OF INSTRUCTIONS: The Contractor shall neither seek nor accept instructions from any authority external
to UNHCR in connection with the performance of its obligations under the Contract. Should any authority external to
UNHCR seek to impose any instructions concerning or restrictions on the Contractors performance under the Contract,
the Contractor shall promptly notify UNHCR in writing and provide all reasonable assistance required by UNHCR. The
Contractor shall not take any action in respect of the performance of its obligations under the Contract that may
adversely affect the interests of UNHCR, and the Contractor shall perform its obligations under the Contract with the
fullest regard to the interests of UNHCR.

3.

RESPONSIBILITY FOR EMPLOYEES: To the extent that the Contract involves the provision of any services to
UNHCR by the Contractors officials, employees, agents, servants, subcontractors and other representatives
(collectively, the Contractors personnel), the following provisions shall apply:
3.1 The Contractor shall be responsible for the professional and technical competence of the personnel it assigns to
perform work under the Contract and will select reliable and competent individuals who will be able to
effectively perform the obligations under the Contract and who, while doing so, will respect the local laws and
customs and conform to a high standard of moral and ethical conduct.
3.2 Such Contractor personnel shall be professionally qualified and, if required to work with officials or staff of
UNHCR, shall be able to do so effectively. The qualifications of any personnel whom the Contractor may
assign or may propose to assign to perform any obligations under the Contract shall be substantially the same,
or better, as the qualifications of any personnel originally proposed by the Contractor.
3.3 At the option of and in the sole discretion of UNHCR:
3.3.1 the qualifications of personnel proposed by the Contractor (e.g., a curriculum vitae) may be
reviewed by UNHCR prior to such personnels performing any obligations under the Contract;
3.3.2 any personnel proposed by the Contractor to perform obligations under the Contract may be
interviewed by qualified staff or officials of UNHCR prior to such personnels performing any
obligations under the Contract; and,
3.3.3 in cases in which, pursuant to Article 3.3.1 or 3.3.2, above, UNHCR has reviewed the qualifications
of such Contractors personnel, UNHCR may reasonably refuse to accept any such personnel.
3.4 Requirements specified in the Contract regarding the number or qualifications of the Contractors personnel
may change during the course of performance of the Contract. Any such change shall be made only following
written notice of such proposed change and upon written agreement between the Parties regarding such change,
subject to the following:

withdrawn or replaced without the prior written consent of UNHCR, which shall not be unreasonably

possible and in a manner that will not adversely affect the performance of obligations under the
Contract.
3.4.4 All expenses related to the withdrawal or replacement of the Contractors personnel shall, in all
cases, be borne exclusively by the Contractor.

considered to be a termination, in whole or in part, of the Contract, and UNHCR shall not bear any
liability in respect of such withdrawn or replaced personnel.
3.4.6 If a request for the withdrawal or replacement of the Contractors personnel is not based upon a
default by or failure on the part of the Contractor to perform its obligations in accordance with the
Contract, the misconduct of the personnel, or the inability of such personnel to reasonably work
together with UNHCR officials and staff, then the Contractor shall not be liable by reason of any
such request for the withdrawal or replacement of the Contractors personnel for any delay in the
performance by the Contractor of its obligations under the Contract that is substantially the result of
such personnels being withdrawn or replaced.
3.5 Nothing in Articles 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4, above, shall be construed to create any obligations on the part of UNHCR
with respect to the Contractors personnel assigned to perform work under the Contract, and such personnel

under the Contract and who may have access to any premises or other property of UNHCR shall:

UNHCR premises have been charged by law enforcement authorities with an offense other than a minor traffic
offense, the Contractor shall provide written notice to inform UNHCR about the particulars of the charges then
known and shall continue to inform UNHCR concerning all substantial developments regarding the disposition
of such charges.

Contract except with the prior written authorization of UNHCR. Any such unauthorized assignment, transfer,
pledge or other disposition, or any attempt to do so, shall not be binding on UNHCR. Except as permitted with
respect to any approved subcontractors, the Contractor shall not delegate any of its obligations under the
Contract, except with the prior written consent of UNHCR. Any such unauthorized delegation, or attempt to do

obligations under the Contract, the Contractor shall obtain the prior written approval of UNHCR. UNHCR shall be
entitled, in its sole discretion, to review the qualifications of any subcontractors and to reject any proposed subcontractor
that UNHCR reasonably considers is not qualified to perform obligations under the Contract. UNHCR shall have the
right to require any subcontractors removal from UNHCR premises without having to give any justification therefor.
Any such rejection or request for removal shall not, in and of itself, entitle the Contractor to claim any delays in the
performance, or to assert any excuses for the non-performance, of any of its obligations under the Contract, and the
Contractor shall be solely responsible for all services and obligations performed by its subcontractors. The terms of any
subcontract shall be subject to, and shall be construed in a manner that is fully in accordance with, all of the terms and
conditions of the Contract.

OFFICIALS NOT TO BENEFIT: The Contractor warrants that it has not and shall not offer any direct or indirect
benefit arising from or related to the performance of the Contract or the award thereof to any representative, official,
employee, or other agent of UNHCR. The Contractor acknowledges and agrees that any breach of this provision is a
breach of an essential term of the Contract.

and unless specifically stated otherwise in the Contract, the following conditions shall apply to any purchases of goods
under the Contract:

relevant to the goods shall be in the English language unless otherwise specified in the Contract. Unless

entire risk of loss, damage to, or destruction of the goods shall be borne exclusively by the Contractor until
physical delivery of the goods to UNHCR in accordance with the terms of the Contract. Delivery of the goods
shall not be deemed in itself as constituting acceptance of the goods by UNHCR.
7.2 INSPECTION OF THE GOODS: If the Contract provides that the goods may be inspected prior to delivery,
the Contractor shall notify UNHCR when the goods are ready for pre-delivery inspection. Notwithstanding any
pre-delivery inspection, UNHCR or its designated inspection agents may also inspect the goods upon delivery
in order to confirm that the goods conform to applicable specifications or other requirements of the Contract.
All reasonable facilities and assistance, including, but not limited to, access to drawings and production data,
shall be furnished to UNHCR or its designated inspection agents at no charge therefor. Neither the carrying out
of any inspections of the goods nor any failure to undertake any such inspections shall relieve the Contractor of
any of its warranties or the performance of any obligations under the Contract.
7.3 PACKAGING OF THE GOODS: The Contractor shall package the goods for delivery in accordance with the
highest standards of export packaging for the type and quantities and modes of transport of the goods. The

specified in the Contract, the Contractor shall have no right to any return of the packing materials.
7.4 TRANSPORTATION & FREIGHT: Unless otherwise specified in the Contract (including, but not limited
to, in any INCOTERM or similar trade term), the Contractor shall be solely liable for making all transport
arrangements and for payment of freight and insurance costs for the shipment and delivery of the goods in
accordance with the requirements of the Contract. The Contractor shall ensure that UNHCR receives all
necessary transport documents in a timely manner so as to enable UNHCR to take delivery of the goods in
accordance with the requirements of the Contract.
7.5 WARRANTIES: Unless otherwise specified in the Contract, in addition to and without limiting any other
warranties, remedies or rights of UNHCR stated in or arising under the Contract, the Contractor warrants and
represents that:

Contract, are fit for the purposes for which such goods are ordinarily used and for any purposes
expressly made known in writing in the Contract, and shall be of even quality, free from faults and
defects in design, material, manufacturer and workmanship;
7.5.2 If the Contractor is not the original manufacturer of the goods, the Contractor shall provide UNHCR
with the benefit of all manufacturers warranties in addition to any other warranties required to be
provided under the Contract;
7.5.3 The goods are of the quality, quantity and description required by the Contract, including when

7.5.6 All warranties will remain fully valid following any delivery of the goods and for a period of not less
than one (1) year following acceptance of the goods by UNHCR in accordance with the Contract;
7.5.7 During any period in which the Contractors warranties are effective, upon notice by UNHCR that
the goods do not conform to the requirements of the Contract, the Contractor shall promptly and at its
own expense correct such non-conformities or, in case of its inability to do so, replace the defective
goods with goods of the same or better quality or, at its own cost, remove the defective goods and
fully reimburse UNHCR for the purchase price paid for the defective goods; and,
7.5.8 The Contractor shall remain responsive to the needs of UNHCR for any services that may be required
in connection with any of the Contractors warranties under the Contract.
7.6 ACCEPTANCE OF GOODS: Under no circumstances shall UNHCR be required to accept any goods that do
not conform to the specifications or requirements of the Contract. UNHCR may condition its acceptance of the
goods upon the successful completion of acceptance tests as may be specified in the Contract or otherwise
agreed in writing by the Parties. In no case shall UNHCR be obligated to accept any goods unless and until
UNHCR has had a reasonable opportunity to inspect the goods following delivery. If the Contract specifies that
UNHCR shall provide a written acceptance of the goods, the goods shall not be deemed accepted unless and
until UNHCR in fact provides such written acceptance. In no case shall payment by UNHCR in and of itself
constitute acceptance of the goods.
7.7 REJECTION OF GOODS: Notwithstanding any other rights of, or remedies available to UNHCR under the
Contract, in case any of the goods are defective or otherwise do not conform to the specifications or other
requirements of the Contract, UNHCR, at its sole option, may reject or refuse to accept the goods, and within
thirty (30) days following receipt of notice from UNHCR of such rejection or refusal to accept the goods, the

UNHCR may procure the goods from another source. In addition to any other rights or remedies available to
UNHCR under the Contract, including, but not limited to, the right to terminate the Contract, the Contractor
shall be liable for any additional cost beyond the balance of the Contract price resulting from any such
procurement, including, inter alia, the costs of engaging in such procurement, and UNHCR shall be entitled to
compensation from the Contractor for any reasonable expenses incurred for preserving and storing the goods
for the Contractors account.
7.9 TITLE: The Contractor warrants and represents that the goods delivered under the Contract are unencumbered
by any third partys title or other property rights, including, but not limited to, any liens or security interests.
Unless otherwise expressly provided in the Contract, title in and to the goods shall pass from the Contractor to
UNHCR upon delivery of the goods and their acceptance by UNHCR in accordance with the requirements of
the Contract.
7.10 EXPORT LICENSING: The Contractor shall be responsible for obtaining any export license required with
respect to the goods, products, or technologies, including software, sold, delivered, licensed or otherwise
provided to UNHCR under the Contract. The Contractor shall procure any such export license in an expeditious
manner. Subject to and without any waiver of the privileges and immunities of UNHCR, UNHCR shall lend
the Contractor all reasonable assistance required for obtaining any such export license. Should any
Governmental entity refuse, delay or hinder the Contractors ability to obtain any such export license, the

copyrighted material, or any other goods, property or services provided or licensed to UNHCR under
the terms of the Contract, in whole or in part, separately or in a combination contemplated by the
Contractors published specifications therefor, or otherwise specifically approved by the Contractor,
constitutes an infringement of any patent, copyright, trademark, or other intellectual property right of
any third party; or,
8.1.2 any acts or omissions of the Contractor, or of any subcontractor or anyone directly or indirectly
employed by them in the performance of the Contract, which give rise to legal liability to anyone not
a party to the Contract, including, without limitation, claims and liability in the nature of a claim for
workers compensation.

loss or liability.
8.4 UNHCR shall advise the Contractor about any such suits, proceedings, claims, demands, losses or liability

maintain. UNHCR shall have the right, at its own expense, to be represented in any such suit, proceeding, claim
or demand by independent counsel of its own choosing.

Contractor, in whole or in part, in any suit or proceeding, is for any reason enjoined, temporarily or
permanently, or is found to infringe any patent, copyright, trademark or other intellectual property right, or in
the event of a settlement, is enjoined, limited or otherwise interfered with, then the Contractor, at its sole cost
and expense, shall, promptly, either:
8.5.1 procure for UNHCR the unrestricted right to continue using such goods or services provided to
UNHCR;
8.5.2 replace or modify the goods or services provided to UNHCR, or part thereof, with the equivalent or
better goods or services, or part thereof, that is non-infringing; or,

services, or part thereof.

affected Party shall give notice and full particulars in writing to the other Party, of such occurrence or cause if
the affected Party is thereby rendered unable, wholly or in part, to perform its obligations and meet its
responsibilities under the Contract. The affected Party shall also notify the other Party of any other changes in
condition or the occurrence of any event which interferes or threatens to interfere with its performance of the
Contract. Not more than fifteen (15) days following the provision of such notice of force majeure or other
changes in condition or occurrence, the affected Party shall also submit a statement to the other Party of
estimated expenditures that will likely be incurred for the duration of the change in condition or the event of
force majeure. On receipt of the notice or notices required hereunder, the Party not affected by the occurrence

necessary in the circumstances, including the granting to the affected Party of a reasonable extension of time
in which to perform any obligations under the Contract.
15.2 If the Contractor is rendered unable, wholly or in part, by reason of force majeure to perform its obligations
and meet its responsibilities under the Contract, UNHCR shall have the right to suspend or terminate the
Contract on the same terms and conditions as are provided for in Article 16, Termination, except that the
period of notice shall be seven (7) days instead of thirty (30) days. In any case, UNHCR shall be entitled to
consider the Contractor permanently unable to perform its obligations under the Contract in case the
Contractor is unable to perform its obligations, wholly or in part, by reason of force majeure for any period in
excess of ninety (90) days.
15.3 Force majeure as used herein means any unforeseeable and irresistible act of nature, any act of war (whether
declared or not), invasion, revolution, insurrection, terrorism, or any other acts of a similar nature or force,
provided that such acts arise from causes beyond the control and without the fault or negligence of the
Contractor. The Contractor acknowledges and agrees that, with respect to any obligations under the Contract
that the Contractor must perform in areas in which UNHCR is engaged in, preparing to engage in, or
disengaging from any humanitarian or similar operations, any delays or failure to perform such obligations
arising from or relating to harsh conditions within such areas, or to any incidents of civil unrest occurring in
such areas, shall not, in and of itself, constitute force majeure under the Contract.
16. TERMINATION:
16.1 Either Party may terminate the Contract for cause, in whole or in part, upon thirty (30) days notice, in writing,
to the other Party. The initiation of conciliation or arbitral proceedings in accordance with Article 19
Settlement of Disputes, below, shall not be deemed to be a cause for or otherwise to be in itself a
termination of the Contract.
16.2 UNHCR may terminate the Contract at any time by providing written notice to the Contractor in any case in
which the mandate of UNHCR applicable to the performance of the Contract or the funding of UNHCR

take any other action that may be necessary, or that UNHCR may direct in writing, for the

intangible, related to the Contract that is in the possession of the Contractor and in which UNHCR
has or may be reasonably expected to acquire an interest.

accountings from the Contractor concerning all obligations performed or pending in accordance with the
Contract. In addition, UNHCR shall not be liable to pay the Contractor except for those goods delivered and

services were ordered, requested or otherwise provided prior to the Contractors receipt of notice of
termination from UNHCR or prior to the Contractors tendering of notice of termination to UNHCR.

in the event that:
16.5.1

the Contractor is adjudged bankrupt, or is liquidated, or becomes insolvent, or applies for a


moratorium or stay on any payment or repayment obligations, or applies to be declared insolvent;

16.5.2

the Contractor is granted a moratorium or a stay, or is declared insolvent;

including, but not limited to, all costs incurred by UNHCR in any legal or non-legal proceedings, as a result of
any of the events specified in Article 16.5, above, and resulting from or relating to a termination of the

Contract, even if the Contractor is adjudged bankrupt, or is granted a moratorium or stay or is declared
insolvent. The Contractor shall immediately inform UNHCR of the occurrence of any of the events specified
in Article 16.5, above, and shall provide UNHCR with any information pertinent thereto.
16.7 The provisions of this Article 16 are without prejudice to any other rights or remedies of UNHCR under the
Contract or otherwise.
17. NON-WAIVER OF RIGHTS: The failure by either Party to exercise any rights available to it, whether under the
Contract or otherwise, shall not be deemed for any purposes to constitute a waiver by the other Party of any such right or
any remedy associated therewith, and shall not relieve the Parties of any of their obligations under the Contract.
18. NON-EXCLUSIVITY: Unless otherwise specified in the Contract, UNHCR shall have no obligation to purchase any
minimum quantities of goods or services from the Contractor, and UNHCR shall have no limitation on its right to obtain
goods or services of the same kind, quality and quantity described in the Contract, from any other source at any time.
19. SETTLEMENT OF DISPUTES:
19.1 AMICABLE SETTLEMENT: The Parties shall use their best efforts to amicably settle any dispute,
controversy, or claim arising out of the Contract or the breach, termination, or invalidity thereof. Where the
Parties wish to seek such an amicable settlement through conciliation, the conciliation shall take place in
accordance with the Conciliation Rules then obtaining of the United Nations Commission on International
Trade Law (UNCITRAL), or according to such other procedure as may be agreed between the Parties in
writing.
19.2 ARBITRATION: Any dispute, controversy, or claim between the Parties arising out of the Contract or the
breach, termination, or invalidity thereof, unless settled amicably under Article 19.1, above, within sixty (60)
days after receipt by one Party of the other Partys written request for such amicable settlement, shall be
referred by either Party to arbitration in accordance with the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules then obtaining.
The decisions of the arbitral tribunal shall be based on general principles of international commercial law. The
arbitral tribunal shall be empowered to order the return or destruction of goods or any property, whether
tangible or intangible, or of any confidential information provided under the Contract, order the termination of
the Contract, or order that any other protective measures be taken with respect to the goods, services or any
other property, whether tangible or intangible, or of any confidential information provided under the Contract,
as appropriate, all in accordance with the authority of the arbitral tribunal pursuant to Article 26 (Interim
Measures of Protection) and Article 32 (Form and Effect of the Award) of the UNCITRAL Arbitration
Rules. The arbitral tribunal shall have no authority to award punitive damages. In addition, unless otherwise
expressly provided in the Contract, the arbitral tribunal shall have no authority to award interest in excess of
the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR) then prevailing, and any such interest shall be simple interest
only. The Parties shall be bound by any arbitration award rendered as a result of such arbitration as the final
adjudication of any such dispute, controversy, or claim.
20. PRIVILEGES AND IMMUNITIES: Nothing in or relating to the Contract shall be deemed a waiver, express or
implied, of any of the privileges and immunities of the United Nations, including its subsidiary organs or of UNHCR (as
a subsidiary organ of the United Nations).
21. TAX EXEMPTION:
21.1 Article II, Section 7, of the Convention on the Privileges and Immunities of the United Nations provides, inter
alia, that the United Nations, including UNHCR as one of its subsidiary organs, is exempt from all direct
taxes, except charges for public utility services, and is exempt from customs restrictions, duties, and charges
of a similar nature in respect of articles imported or exported for its official use. In the event any
governmental authority refuses to recognize the exemptions of UNHCR from such taxes, restrictions, duties,
or charges, the Contractor shall immediately consult with UNHCR to determine a mutually acceptable
procedure.
21.2 The Contractor authorizes UNHCR to deduct from the Contractors invoices any amount representing such
taxes, duties or charges, unless the Contractor has consulted with UNHCR before the payment thereof and
UNHCR has, in each instance, specifically authorized the Contractor to pay such taxes, duties, or charges
under written protest. In that event, the Contractor shall provide UNHCR with written evidence that payment
of such taxes, duties or charges has been made and appropriately authorized, and UNHCR shall reimburse the

Contract shall be valid and enforceable against UNHCR unless provided by a valid written amendment to the
Contract signed by the Contractor and the Director of the Division for Emergency and Supply Management or
such other contracting authority.
23.2 If the Contract shall be extended for additional periods in accordance with the terms and conditions of the
Contract, the terms and conditions applicable to any such extended term of the Contract shall be the same
terms and conditions as set forth in the Contract, unless the Parties shall have agreed otherwise pursuant to a
valid amendment concluded in accordance with Article 23.1, above.
23.3 The terms or conditions of any supplemental undertakings, licenses, or other forms of agreement concerning
any goods or services provided under the Contract shall not be valid and enforceable against UNHCR nor in
any way shall constitute an agreement by UNHCR thereto unless any such undertakings, licenses or other
forms are the subject of a valid amendment concluded in accordance with Article 23.1, above.
24. AUDITS AND INVESTIGATIONS:
24.1 Each invoice paid by UNHCR shall be subject to a post-payment audit by auditors, whether internal or
external, of UNHCR or by other authorized and qualified agents of UNHCR at any time during the term of the

UNHCR shall be entitled to a refund from the Contractor for any amounts shown by such audits to have been
paid by UNHCR other than in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Contract.
24.2 The Contractor acknowledges and agrees that, from time to time, UNHCR may conduct investigations relating

upon expiration or prior termination of the Contract. The Contractor shall provide its full and timely
cooperation with any such inspections, post-payment audits or investigations. Such cooperation shall include,
but shall not be limited to, the Contractors obligation to make available its personnel and any relevant
documentation for such purposes at reasonable times and on reasonable conditions and to grant to UNHCR
access to the Contractors premises at reasonable times and on reasonable conditions in connection with such
access to the Contractors personnel and relevant documentation. The Contractor shall require its agents,
including, but not limited to, the Contractors attorneys, accountants or other advisers, to reasonably cooperate
with any inspections, post-payment audits or investigations carried out by UNHCR hereunder.

Contract, any arbitral proceedings in accordance with Article 19.2, above, arising out of the Contract must be
commenced within three years after the cause of action has accrued.
25.2 The Parties further acknowledge and agree that, for these purposes, a cause of action shall accrue when the
breach actually occurs, or, in the case of latent defects, when the injured Party knew or should have known all
of the essential elements of the cause of action, or in the case of a breach of warranty, when tender of delivery
is made, except that, if a warranty extends to future performance of the goods or any process or system and the
discovery of the breach consequently must await the time when such goods or other process or system is ready
REV.: JANUARY 2010

PAGE 12

to perform in accordance with the requirements of the Contract, the cause of action accrues when such time of
future performance actually begins.
26. CHILD LABOR: The Contractor represents and warrants that neither it, its parent entities (if any), nor any of the
Contractors subsidiary or affiliated entities (if any), is engaged in any practice inconsistent with the rights set forth
in the Convention on the Rights of the Child, including Article 32 thereof, which, inter alia, requires that a child
shall be protected from performing any work that is likely to be hazardous or to interfere with the childs education,
or to be harmful to the childs health or physical, mental, spiritual, moral, or social development. The Contractor
acknowledges and agrees that the provisions hereof constitute an essential term of the Contract and that any breach
of this representation and warranty shall entitle UNHCR to terminate the Contract immediately upon notice to the
Contractor, without any liability for termination charges or any other liability of any kind.
27. MINES: The Contractor warrants and represents that neither it, its parent entities (if any), nor any of the
Contractors subsidiaries or affiliated entities (if any), is engaged in the sale or manufacture of anti-personnel mines

warranty shall entitle UNHCR to terminate the Contract immediately upon notice to the Contractor, without any
liability for termination charges or any other liability of any kind.
28. SEXUAL EXPLOITATION:
28.1 The Contractor shall take all appropriate measures to prevent sexual exploitation or abuse of anyone by its
employees or any other persons engaged and controlled by the Contractor to perform any services under the
Contract. For these purposes, sexual activity with any person less than eighteen years of age, regardless of any
laws relating to consent, shall constitute the sexual exploitation and abuse of such person. In addition, the
Contractor shall refrain from, and shall take all reasonable and appropriate measures to prohibit its employees
or other persons engaged and controlled by it from exchanging any money, goods, services, or other things of
value, for sexual favors or activities, or from engaging any sexual activities that are exploitive or degrading to
any person. The Contractor acknowledges and agrees that the provisions hereof constitute an essential term of
the Contract and that any breach of these provisions shall entitle UNHCR to terminate the Contract
immediately upon notice to the Contractor, without any liability for termination charges or any other liability
of any kind.
28.2 UNHCR shall not apply the foregoing standard relating to age in any case in which the Contractors personnel
or any other person who may be engaged by the Contractor to perform any services under the Contract is
married to the person less than the age of eighteen years with whom sexual activity has occurred and in which
such marriage is recognized as valid under the laws of the country of citizenship of such Contractors
personnel or such other person who may be engaged by the Contractor to perform any services under the
Contract.
29. EXPLOITATION AND ABUSE OF REFUGEES AND OTHER PERSONS OF CONCERN TO UNHCR:
The Contractor warrants that it has instructed its personnel to refrain from any conduct that would adversely reflect
on UNHCR and/or the United Nations and from any activity which is incompatible with the aims and objectives of
the United Nations or the mandate of UNHCR to ensure the protection of refugees and other persons of concern to
UNHCR. The Contractor hereby undertakes all possible measures to prevent its personnel from exploiting and
abusing refugees and other persons of concern to UNHCR. The failure of the Contractor to investigate allegations of
exploitation and abuse against its personnel or related to its activities or to take corrective action when exploitation
or abuse has occurred, shall entitle UNHCR to terminate the Contract immediately upon notice to the Contractor, at
no cost to UNHCR.
30. PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS: UNHCR shall, on the fulfillment of the delivery terms, unless otherwise provided
in the Contract or purchase order, make payment by bank transfer within thirty days of receipt of the Contractors
invoice for the goods and copies of any other documentation specified in the Contract. Payment against the invoice

payment is made within the period required by such payment terms. The prices shown in the Contract or the
purchase order may not be increased except by express written agreement of UNHCR. Documents are to be sent to
the address indicated in the Contract or purchase order.
