CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST FROM PROSPECTIVE VENDORS FOR THE SUPPLY OF AR-6031 PHOTOCOPIER MACHINE WITH AUTOMATIC DOCUMENT FEEDER (ADF)
In early 2020, the Federal Republic of Nigeria (FRN), United States of America and the Bailiwick of Jersey (collectively referred to as the “Parties”) signed a Trilateral Asset Agreement to enable a transparent and efficient repatriation of $311 million for the benefit of the people of Nigeria. The Parties agreed that the forfeited assets shall be used exclusively for the purpose of financing the projects set out in Article 6 of the Asset Agreement and further described in Schedule 1 (the Projects), the payment of fees of the Monitoring Civil Society Organization (“Monitoring CSO”) and the independent designated auditor. The Projects are defined as: (a) the Lagos to Ibadan Expressway; (b) the Abuja to Kano Road; and (c) the Second Niger Bridge. The implementing agency for the Asset Agreement for the FRN is the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA).
The Asset Agreement required, among other things, that the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (the “Government”) engage a Monitoring CSO to provide ongoing monitoring of the implementation of the Projects. In fulfilment of this requirement, the Federal Ministry of Justice acting on behalf of the Government retained CLEEN FOUNDATION through an Engagement Contract dated February 10, 2021. Under the terms of the Engagement Contract, the Monitoring CSO is required to procure project equipment and materials required for its monitoring activities.
