This document is advisory in nature and aim to sensitize the bid management teams on good practices and harmonize/standardize the RFP clauses and terms & conditions. All the deliverables of the assignment “Preparation of Model Requests for Proposals (RFPs), Toolkit and Guidance Notes for preparation of RFPs for E–Governance Projects” are based on existing Central Government Guidelines, feedback from stakeholders and prevalent international practices. However it is possible that the State Government / Nodal Agencies may have their own specific procurement Guidelines which may or may not be consistent with the clauses of the RFP, Guidance notes or Contract Agreement.
It may be noted that these documents do not substitute or overrule any approvals currently required by the concerned Department/State Government Nodal Agency for finalization of the RFP. Accordingly it is advised that all necessary approvals are taken from appropriate authorities, as done before publishing of these model documents.
