The Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MOHS) of the Government of Sierra Leone has the overall responsibility of providing leadership and coordination of health policy development and health service provision in the country. The MOHS is also the largest provider of health services in Sierra Leone accounting for about 80% of the health facilities; the remaining 20% of health facilities are managed by private institutions. Because of limited human and financial resources, the MOHS and stakeholders in the health sector have defined a Basic Package of Essential Health Services (BPEHS) which focuses on several interventions and covers, among other things the provision of good quality, safe medicine to patients at an affordable cost and in the most efficient manner.

MOHS is receiving support from the World Bank towards the cost of constructing a new School of Clinical Sciences (SCS) at Makeni, Bombali District. MOHS requires the services of a firm of construction consultants (the Consultants) to work with MOHS and the staff of SCS in the design of the facilities and to supervise and manage the construction works.  These Terms of Reference (TORs) set out the details of the assignment together with the duties and responsibilities of the Consultants and should form the basis for the formulation of Technical and Financial proposals by the consulting firms submitting bids.

The procurement of the consulting firm will be undertaken in accordance with the World Bank, Integrated Health Projects Administration Unit (IHPAU) procurement rules, which are aligned with the National Public Procurement Authority (NPPA) procurement rules. The procurement of the consulting firm will be through National Competitive Bidding (NCB) which is limited to local companies.

The objectives of the Consultancy are to provide surveying, architectural, engineering and quantity surveying services for the preparation of final designs, working drawings, bills of quantities, bidding documents and cost estimates for the construction of the new and renovated SCS facilities. 

The Consultants are expected to work closely with the MOHS and the staff of SCS in finalizing the designs and in providing appropriate and cost-effective designs for the buildings.  Great emphasis should be placed upon simplicity and economy both in the design and the construction of the facilities whilst also taking into account the climate of the country.  The buildings should be simple to construct and maintain and should provide a comfortable working environment.  Buildings should be oriented wherever possible to face north-south and have large roof overhangs (together with any other necessary devices to protect them from the sun) to protect walls and windows from sun and rain.

The Consultants will provide surveying, design, documentation, management and supervision services.  This work will include: surveys of the site; designs for all buildings; preliminary and final cost estimates; working drawings; bills of quantities; specifications and bidding documents for the facilities at:
The new School of Clinical Sciences at Makeni, Bombali District.
The two existing buildings have been renovated under a previous contract and are providing temporary accommodation for SCS until the new buildings have been constructed.  The two existing buildings will then be altered to provide mainly administrative accommodation for the school with the new buildings providing all of the teaching, dormitory and other accommodation.  A new perimeter fence to the site has also been constructed under a previous contract.  The scope of services required under this contract will include the design and supervision of the construction of the following:

·         Teaching buildings;
·         A cafeteria and kitchen;
·         A warden’s house and a student sick bay;
·         Dormitory accommodation for 240 students.

The Consultants should work closely with MOHS and the staff of SCS in the design of the buildings and the designs should be agreed with the World Bank.  It should be noted here that a World Bank consultant has prepared preliminary designs for all of the new buildings that will be required and that these have been agreed with staff of SCS and these designs should form the basis for the final designs for all buildings. It will be the Consultant's responsibility to ensure that this engagement, upon conclusion, is managed and completed within the agreed fee and within the agreed time frame. The Consultants will be required to absorb reasonable client-initiated changes to the designs whilst remaining within the agreed fee.  The Consultants are to ensure that the designs and the final documentation of the project are complete and to the satisfaction of the MOHS and any relevant authorities and in accordance with the agreed design brief.

The Ministry of Health & Sanitation through the Integrated Health Projects Administration now invites eligible consulting firms(“Consultants”) to indicate their interest in providing the Services.
