COVID-19 remains a public threat and requires a holistic approach across different levels of the healthcare system. To that end, the Ethiopian Ministry of Health (MOH), along with its key stakeholders, has been working to expand medical oxygen and related devices in the country to ensure the sustainable availability of medical oxygen for COVID-19 response and beyond. This deliberate effort is aimed to build a resilient health system for a strong response to public health emergencies.
Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) Ethiopia supports the MOH, Ethiopia on a wide range of programs to strengthen the country’s health system and ensure access to quality health services. CHAI is mandated to coordinate the procurement of central oxygen distribution systems and manifold materials, installation, and training services to optimize the production capacity of liquid oxygen plants at Dilla and Ambo General Hospitals.
The MOH with CHAI support would like to procure pipeline and manifold system materials, installation services, and a training package for end-users including biomedical engineers at two priority hospitals in the country, the Ambo General Hospital, and Dilla University Hospital.
All bids will be evaluated based on efficiency, cost-effectiveness, value-for-money, and long-term sustainability of the oxygen ecosystem.
Detailed specifications for the Bid can be found in Annex A.
Desired shipping, installation, and commissioning costs are presented under DDP INCOTERMS 2020.
