                                          SPECIFICATIONS
1.0   GENERAL INFORMATION

1.1   In the event of an order, the UNOPS General Conditions will apply. The conditions are available at:
      http://www.unops.org/english/whatweneed/Pages/Guidelinesforsuppliers.aspx under “Guidelines to
      suppliers > UNOPS general conditions of contract”. If your company is unable to access the document,
      please send an e-mail to: (samuels@unops.org) and the UNOPS General Conditions f will be sent to
      you electronically.

1.2   The goods to be purchased under these specifications are for the Ministry of Health in LIBERIA.

1.3   Bidders are cautioned to read the specifications carefully, as there may be special requirements. The
      technical specifications presented herein are not to be construed as defining a particular manufacturer’s
      product. Bidders are encouraged to advise UNOPS, if they disagree.

1.4   These specifications are the minimum requirements for the products. Products offered must meet or
      exceed all requirements herein. The products shall conform in strength, quality and workmanship to
      the accepted standards of the relevant industry. Modifications of or additions to basic standard products
      of less size or capability to meet these requirements will not be acceptable.

1.5   Final quantities may be increased or decreased according to the funds allocated. Therefore bidders
      should indicate any price/quantity restrictions associated with their offer.

1.6   UNOPS reserves the right to purchase either FCA or CPT, whichever is in its best financial interest.

1.7   UNOPS reserves the right to accept all or part of your offer. UNOPS will accept partial offers but not
      partial offers of a given item, i.e. the complete quantity must be offered for each item.

1.8   Information regarding Bid Protest can be found at:
      http://www.unops.org/english/whatwedo/procurement/Pages/Procurementpolicies.aspx.

1.9   As a condition of doing business with UNOPS it is necessary that vendors, their subsidiaries, agents,
      intermediaries and principals cooperate with the Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS) of the
      United Nations in its investigations, as and when required. Such cooperation shall include, but not be
      limited to, the following: access to all employees, representatives, agents and assignees of the vendor;
      as well as production of all documents requested, including financial records. Failure to fully cooperate
      with investigations will be considered sufficient grounds to allow UNOPS to repudiate and terminate
      the contract, and to debar and remove the vendor from UNOPS’s list of registered vendors.
