New clarification added: Dear Sir / Madam,We are interested to submit to the tender for a Master Plan and Design of Kassala Health Citadel. Four questions arose after reading the documentation:1. Under Section C Deliverables, part 1 Pre-design Phase, mentioning is made of '1. finalisation of architectural As-Built drawings' and '7. Review of existing draft design brief'. In order to make an accurate estimation of the required time, would it be possible to share the related documents and drawings?2. Under Section D Timeline and Milestones, table point 4, 'approval with key partners before proceeding with construction phase' is mentioned. From Section C Deliverables it was understood that the contract finished after submitting the last drawings, costings and specifications. To be sure, is bid evaluation (of the construction companies) part of this tender?3. Under Section C Deliverables, part 1 Pre-design Phase, some deliverables are followed with 'n/a'. Can we assume this deliverable is thus not part of this assignment?4. Is it possible to submit 2 CVs for one function and how will it be evaluated?Thank you in advance for the clarifications!Dear Bidder,UNOPS has already answered these questions . . . please see previous responses.
