What is an Invitation to Bid ?
An ITB is normally used whenever the entity is not required to propose technical approaches to a project activity, or to offer management or supervision of an activity. ITB’s are used when the entity is to provide its cost requirements to meet precise specifications sought from UNDP. This is normally the case when UNDP buys goods. It may also apply to work contracts and services that can be expressed quantitatively and qualitatively.ITB applies to contracts exceeding $100,000. The United Nations Development Programme in Kenya, (UNDP Kenya) is in the process of pre-qualifying suppliers and contractors for provision of goods and services listed below for the 2009 financial year. Current suppliers and service providers who wish to be retained in the register are encouraged to apply.

Request for Proposal - RFP

A RFP may also be used for purchase of complex goods when you are not sure of the functional specifications and wish to seek proposals.
