Contact Person for Inquiries (Written inquiries only)Hyeladzira P. Bwala Any delay in COWACDI’s response shall not be used as a reason for extending the deadline for submission, unless COWACDI determines that such an extension is necessary and communicates a new deadline to the Proposers.

Goods offered shall be reviewed based on completeness and compliance of the quotation with the minimum specifications described above and any other annexes providing details of COWACDI requirements.

The quotation that complies with all of the specifications, requirements and offers the most reasonable price, as well as all other evaluation criteria indicated, shall be selected. Any offer that does not meet the requirements shall be rejected.

Any discrepancy between the unit price and the total price (obtained by multiplying the unit price and quantity) shall be re-computed by COWACDI.

If the supplier does not accept the final price based on COWACDI’s re-computation and correction of errors, its quotation will be rejected.

After COWACDI has identified the most reasonable price offer, COWACDI reserves the right to award the contract based only on the prices of the goods in the event that the transportation cost (freight and insurance) is found to be higher than COWACDI’s own estimated cost if sourced from its own freight forwarder and insurance provider.

At any time during the validity of the quotation, no price variation due to escalation, inflation, fluctuation in exchange rates, or any other market factors shall be accepted by COWACDI after it has received the quotation.
