differentiates between market approach options and selection methods expands use of Framework Agreements strengthens contract management Slide 11 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Greater focus on procurement planning Project Procurement Strategy for Development (PPSD) New market analysis and procurement planning tool Risk-based approach Addresses how the procurement will support development and deliver best value for money (VfM) Forms the basis of the procurement plan Proportional to the risk, value and complexity of the procurement Short version for low-value, low-risk projects Simplified version for emergency situations Living document can be updated periodically Electronic procurement planning and monitoring system (STEP)

Slide 12 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Questions? BACKGROUND TO DEVELOPING THE Standard Procurement Documents Standard Bidding Documents (SBDs) vs Standard Procurement Documents (SPDs) SBDs vs SPDs There are now 2 sets of documents = SBDs + SPDs SBDs continue to be used for any project governed by the Guidelines SPDs to be used for projects where the new Procurement Framework applies

Scope of application of SPDs mandatory for international competitive procurements where the Project Concept Note is approved after 1 July 2016 may be used (as amended) for national competitive procurements, with the Banks agreement Slide 15 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents The new Standard Procurement Documents Standard Procurement Documents (SPDs) 23 SPDs launched 1 July 2016 In development: RFP Works (Design + Build) RFP Streamlined RFP Competitive Dialogue SPD Framework Agreement Translations are underway (French and Spanish) NOTE: Of the 23 launched 12 (relating to Works) have been updated to

include Environment, Social, Health + Safety (ESHS) enhancements and published in January 2017. ESHS will be covered in detail in a separate seminar.

use of international instruments e.g. INCOTERMS and URDG Slide 19 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents How the SPDs were designed Key design features Maintained existing category classifications i.e.: goods works non-consulting services consulting services Maintained specialization within categories e.g.: goods still includes: health = pharmaceuticals, vaccines and condoms education = textbooks information systems Slide 20 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents

How the SPDs were designed (cont.) Key design features (cont.) Maintained structure of SBD documents e.g.: Instruction to Bidders (ITB) Bid Data Sheet (BDS) Employers Requirements Conditions of Contract Users Guides have been separated from SPDs more concise Users Guides for key SPDs are in development Slide 21 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Questions? GOODS WORKS AND NONCONSULTING SERVICES key changes reflected in all SPDs Key changes common to all SPDs

The next set of slides will cover the following key changes: New test to determine successful bid/proposal Abnormally Low Bid/Proposal Notification of Intention to Award, Standstill Period + debrief Procurement-related complaint (against decision to award the contract) Anti-corruption Guidelines Sustainable procurement Business Day Eligibility of SOEs Eligibility of cross-jurisdictional procurements Value Engineering Slide 24 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features

New test to determine the successful bid/ proposal Most Advantageous Bid/Proposal PPSD informs evaluation methodology Criteria to be appropriate to the nature and complexity of the procurement to allow the borrower to achieve VfM New test = most advantageous bid/proposal (details in later slides) For RFP the lowest evaluated cost alone may not necessarily represent best VfM Slide 25 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Abnormally Low Bid/Proposal

Enhanced provisions based on MDB Working Group findings Modified definition of ALB/P: Where the price, in combination with other elements, appears unreasonably low, to the extent that it raises material concerns as to the bidders/proposers capability to perform the contract for that price The 5 stages in managing an ALB/P: Identify: borrower identifies a potential ALB/P Clarify: borrower seeks clarification from the bidder/proposer Justify:

bidder/proposer prepares a justification of the price Verify: borrower analyzes the justification to verify if it provides reasonable explanation and validation of the price Decide: borrower decides whether to accept or reject the bid/proposal. Slide 26 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Case study: Identification of ALB/P Identification: Scenario 1 Fewer than five compliant bids/proposals: Identification based on a

comparison of the adjusted bid/proposal price, and its constituent parts, with the borrowers own cost estimate. Identification: Scenario 2 At least five compliant bids/proposals: ALB/P risk zone is more than one standard deviation below the average of the compliant bids/proposals received. Example Bids Bid 1 Bid 2 Bid 3 Bid 4 Bid 5 Average Standard Deviation ALB/P threshold $M

72 92 82 101 53 80 17 63 Slide 27 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents ALB/P risk zone 63 80 SPD NEW

features Notification of Intention to Award (NIA) Once borrower decides who to award contract to it must inform other bidders/proposers Send NIA to each bidder/proposer that submitted bid/proposal (but not to those who have previously been told they were not successful) Sending NIA starts the standstill period NIA must include: details of the successful bidder + the contract price names of all other bidders and their prices statement why recipient was not successful instructions on how to request a debriefing date Standstill Period will end

Slide 28 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Standstill Period A period of 10 Business Days, from date NIA sent, where borrower cannot award the contract Allows unsuccessful bidders/proposers time to decide if they want: a debrief to lodge a complaint against the decision to award the contract Standstill Period can be extended in certain circumstances Circumstances where Standstill Period does not apply: only one bid/proposal submitted direct selection call-off under framework agreement

emergency situation Slide 29 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Standstill period timeline Slide 30 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Extended standstill period

Bidder/proposer submits request for a debrief Borrower unable to provide debrief within 5 Business Days Standstill Period extended to 5 Business Days after the debrief takes place Slide 31 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Late request for debrief If bidder/proposer submits a late request for a debrief Borrower to provide debrief as soon as possible Normally no later than 15 Business Days after publication of the Contract Award Notice Slide 32 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents

SPD NEW features Complaints where SPDs apply How to handle complaints where SPDs apply Procurement Regulations Annex III sets out: 3 circumstances when complaints can be made 4 requirements for a complaint to qualify borrowers process and timelines for handling these complaints roles and responsibilities for complainant, borrower and Bank 3 circumstances complainant can challenge: procurement documents decision to exclude the complainant from the process

decision to award the contract (during Standstill Period) Slide 33 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Complaints where SPDs apply (cont.) 4 essential requirements: 1. Who can complain? Complainant must be an interested party 2. In what circumstances? The circumstances giving rise to the complaint must be relevant to the procurement - there are 3 three relevant circumstances

3. When to make the complaint? Complaints must be made in a timely manner - Regulations set the time limits that apply 4. What information must be included? Regulations prescribe the minimum information that must be included in the complaint Slide 34 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Complaints where SPDs apply (cont.) Complaints during the Standstill Period Can challenge the borrowers decision to award the contract

Must submit complaint before the expiry of the Standstill Period Do not need to have requested/received a debrief Borrower will acknowledge complaint within 3 Business Days Borrower will respond to complaint with 15 Business Days of receipt If complaint upheld: borrower may change the contract award recommendation borrower transmits revised intent to award Slide 35 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Anti-corruption provisions Banks Anti-corruption provisions continue to be included in full in

each SPD: defining the sanctionable practices of corruption, fraud, collusion and coercion sanctioning those engaged in sanctionable practices declaring ineligibility of those sanctioned in according with WB prevailing sanctions policies requiring Banks right to inspect Where SPDs are not used (i.e. alternative procurement arrangements, national competitive procurement and PPP), bidders/proposers will be required to accept the application of, and agreed to comply with, the Banks Anti-corruption provisions Slide 36 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features

Sustainable procurement Regulations support application of sustainable procurement Sustainable procurement requirements beyond the Banks policies (e.g. environmental and social) are optional at borrowers discretion and as agreed with the Bank Application must be consistent with Banks Core Procurement Principles and the borrowers own policies May include sustainable procurement in: technical specifications and/or business or performance requirements evaluation criteria contract terms and conditions, if relevant Application in evaluation RFB normally (i) pass/fail and/or (ii) convert to monetary terms RFP normally assessed using combination of pass/fail and rated criteria Slide 37 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents

SPD NEW features Business Day In SPDs a day is a calendar day, unless it is specified as a Business Day A Business day is any day that is an official working day of the borrower - it excludes the borrowers official public holidays. Business Day is clearer for the market Examples of when Business Days apply: time allowed for the preparation and submission of bids/proposals/ expressions of interest the calculation of the Standstill Period the period within which bidders/proposers may request a debrief minimum period before financial proposals may be opened following notification of results of technical evaluation.

Contract conditions continue to be based on calendar days Slide 38 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Eligibility SOEs Eligibility test is now: SOEs of the borrowers country may be eligible to compete, and be awarded contracts, only if they can establish, in a manner acceptable to the Bank, that they: 1. are legally and financially autonomous 2. operate under commercial law 3. are not under supervision by the agency contracting them The requirement of dependency on the borrower has been replaced with supervision of the contracting entity

The ability to be contracted on an exceptional basis has been extended to include SOEs This exception has been expanded beyond consulting services to cover GWNcS Slide 39 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features Eligibility cross-jurisdictional procurement When a procurement involves more than one country Basic position: be country a firm, individual or goods from one country may

excluded by the borrower, if legally the borrowers country prohibits commercial relations with that New provision: where a procurement is implemented across jurisdictional boundaries (more than 1 country is involved) then: 1. this type of exclusion, by one country, may be applied to the procurement across the other countries but only if: 2. the Bank, and all other borrowers, agree Slide 40 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents SPD NEW features

Value Engineering (VE) VE is a systematic and organized approach to increase efficiency or effectiveness by changing materials to reduce cost, or process to reduce time, without sacrificing necessary functionality In SBDs the only reference to VE is the clause in the FIDIC conditions of contract for large Works and Management Services Procurement Regulations expand use, as appropriate, and as agreed in the PPSD Examples: for RFBs VE can be applied during contract implementation for RFPs, this option can also be used at the pre-contract award stage Slide 41 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Questions?

CONSULTING SERVICES updated Request for Proposal Updated RFP Consulting Services No significant changes we have maintained Shortlisting process RFP document structure and language Selection methods (e.g. QBS FBS LCS) Minimum changes to reflect the Regulations Inclusion of common provisions e.g. Notification of Intention to Award, Standstill Period, debrief Shortlisting: removed the restriction of no more than 2 firms from one country changed maximum of 6 to a range = between 5 and 8 NOTE: Consulting Services SPD, where it relates to supervising engineer, has been updated to include Environment, Social, Health + Safety (ESHS) enhancements and published in January 2017.

Slide 44 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents GOODS WORKS AND NONCONSULTING SERVICES key changes - RFBs RFB SPDs key structural changes RFB structural changes Maintained RFB document structure and language Maintained prequalification, now separate RFB SPDs for use: without Prequalification (for Plant and large Works) after Prequalification Discontinued two-stage for plant (this is now RFP Plant) Removed Users Guide from SPDs (plan to issue as separate documents) Introduced two envelope process (currently available for Goods and Small Works) Updated existing Prequalification documents for: works management services health sector goods

Slide 46 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFB GWNcS Modified test for successful bid new features Most Advantageous Bid (MAB) When rated criteria are NOT used: example Request for Bids The most advantageous bid is the bid: 1. of the bidder that meets the qualification criteria, and 2. whose bid has been determined to be: a. substantially responsive to the RFB document, and b. the lowest evaluated cost Slide 47 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents GOODS WORKS AND NONCONSULTING SERVICES key changes - new RFPs New RFP SPDs

for goods, works and non-consulting services Applied in competitive procurement Borrower describes requirements in terms of functionality/ performance and the market proposes solutions Supplier proposes a solution Select the appropriate SPD based on the category of GWNcS and risk, size and complexity of procurement Where appropriate, Bank agrees to using Best and Final Offer (BAFO) or Negotiation Can be used where borrower has capacity to undertake RFP procurement Slide 49 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP SPDs key characteristics RFP SPDs for GWNcS - key characteristics complexity: non-standard procurement, or where complexity is moderate to high and cost of bidding is high

market generated solutions: the market is able to offer customized solutions that are fit-for-purpose and deliver the desired performance/outcome innovation: high potential for innovative solutions value-for-money (VfM): the use of quality/cost evaluation rated criteria will lead to enhanced VfM flexibility: the borrower wants the supplier to have a greater degree of flexibility and/or control over design and/or delivery quality: quality of design and/or execution are important priorities Slide 50 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP SPDs key structural changes New Initial Selection document (a form of shortlisting) New RFP SPD documents based on existing SBDs 3 model RFP SPDs New terminology = Proposer and Proposal Single and multi-stage approaches

Two envelope processes RFP 2 Stage approach for: plant (currently available) information systems (currently available) large works (design + build) (in development for) Slide 51 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Three model RFP SPDs Three RFP SPDs for GWNcS Each has been developed for different scenarios - from complex to very complex procurement Universal RFP SPDs Historically the Bank has developed SBDs and SPDs based on: common procurement categories e.g.: textbooks, works, plant with features appropriate to the category, selection method and perceived complexity, size and risk in the procurement

Universal RFP SPD is planned to be category neutral Streamlined and Competitive Dialogue are planned to be universal Design and scoping document in development Slide 52 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Streamlined RFP (currently in development) Key features: Single-stage plus Initial Selection Borrower is able to describe the result/outcome to be achieved Borrower is seeking customization of existing solution/s or a new or alternative solution No Discovery or Dialogue phases BAFO or Negotiation used, if appropriate Independent probity assurance provider is mandatory if BAFO or Negotiation and closed opening are used Faster than RFP Two-stage and Competitive Dialogue CASE STUDY: Problem: Borrower needs a solution to transport foot and motor vehicle traffic over a river.

Solution: Borrower has decided it wishes to build a bridge. It is looking for proposals that represent best VfM. Slide 53 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Two-stage RFP Key features: Two-stage plus Initial Selection Independent probity assurance provider is strongly advised Borrower can describe the desired result/outcome, but cant fully describe the solution or wants market to propose options Borrower is seeking innovation in design of technical solution and/or delivery or implementation Borrower wishes to explore proposed solutions with each Initially Selected applicant. Allows a Discovery phase for 1-on-1 discussions with proposers Borrower may need additional specialist expertise BAFO or Negotiation used, if appropriate Takes more time and resources than RFP Streamlined, but not as much as RFP

Competitive Dialogue CASE STUDY: Problem: Borrower needs a solution to transport foot and motor vehicle traffic over a river. Solution: Borrower has decided it wishes to build a bridge. It is looking for proposals that represent best VfM and optimize proposed solutions. Slide 54 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Competitive Dialogue RFP (currently in development) Key features: Multi-stage plus Initial Selection Independent probity assurance provider is mandatory Borrower is able to describe the problem to be solved, and/or the result/outcome to be achieved Solutions are not available in the market place, or Difficult to determine the best financial/commercial terms and/or legal/contractual framework Includes Dialogue phase for 1-on-1 discussions with proposers Borrower needs high level of procurement capacity - may need additional specialist expertise

BAFO or Negotiation used, if appropriate Takes the longest of all RFPs and involves borrowers and proposers investing considerable resources and expense CASE STUDY: Problem: Borrower needs a solution to transport foot and motor vehicle traffic over a river. Solution: Borrower does not know if the best solution is a ferry service, bridge, tunnel, or some other innovative novel or unique solution. Slide 55 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents When to use which RFP SPD HIGH COMPLEXITY AND RISK RFPs for GWNcS RFP Competitive Dialogue

RFP Two-stage RFP Streamlined LOW RFB EASY EASE IN DEFINING OUTCOME/S + COMMERCIAL DEAL Slide 56 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Fit-for-purpose by design

Getting the best fit-for-purpose procurement process means choosing the most appropriate Selection Method IN THE GRAPH: y axis = levels of complexity and risk in the procurement and time to undertake the procurement x axis = how easy/difficult is it to define: 1. the outcome to be delivered, and 2. how the contract, ffinancing + commercial deal will be structured DIFFICULT RFP SPDs key content changes The following slides will cover: Initial Selection process and rated criteria

Performance based specifications BAFO or Negotiation option Two-envelope process Closed opening VfM combination of life cycle costing and rated criteria New test - Most Advantageous Proposal (MAP) Slide 57 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents New RFP + Initial Selection process New Request for Proposals Introduced for goods, works and non-consulting services Key features: (GWNcS) introduces Initial Selection (short listing) optimizes use of rated evaluation criteria

promotes functional/performance based specifications encourages innovation and new solutions Initial Selection The shortlisting process used prior to inviting Request for Proposals in the procurement of Goods, Works or Non-consulting Services. Slide 58 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP Selection Method for GWNcS New RFP why? Offers greater flexibility in designing fit-for-purpose procurement process Evaluates quality of proposals, in conjunction with cost Decision to use RFP Selection Method based on: Nature and complexity of the procurement PPSD and Procurement Plan Sufficient time to undertake a longer RFP procurement process

The borrowers capacity to: develop functional based specifications + monitor their implementation develop and apply rated criteria and methodology Slide 59 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Initial Selection The RFP SPDs have been designed to work in conjunction with Initial Selection Regulations: Initial Selection shall normally be used with RFP method for GWNcS normally means there must be a good business reason not to use Initial Selection Rationale Initial Selection enables borrower to invite only the highest ranked applicants to submit proposals

Fairer to the market as only applicants that have the best chance of succeeding are put to the time and cost of submitting full proposals Improves quality of proposals and participation Makes the RFP process more manageable for the borrower Slide 60 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Initial Selection and Prequalification Difference between Initial Selection and Prequalification Prequalification = select all substantially qualified Applications Initial Selection = select only the best (highest scoring) qualified Applications Slide 61 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Prequalification Slide 62 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents

Initial Selection Slide 63 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Range of Applications Initially Selected Set the range based on factors identified in PPSD: Diversity and maturity of market Complexity and/or novelty of the GWNcS being procured Level of effort required by proposers and borrower Not too few - need to maintain competitive tension Not too many - proposers need confidence that they have an increased chance of winning: fosters quality of proposals encourages strong commitment to the process too many defies the purpose of Initial Selection Note: range should be reasonable given nature + complexity of the procurement and market Slide 64 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents

Case study: Initial Selection Evaluation and Initial Selection 14 Applications are received. Only 11 Applications are substantially qualified These 11 are evaluated against the rated criteria and ranked according to their scores Ranking Slide 65 Entity 1st Firm A 2nd Firm B 3rd

Initially Selected maximum number = 8 The Borrower has discretion to Initially Select from this group, where there is justification elimination All Applications exceeding the maximum number are eliminated RFP GWNcS Rated criteria new features Benefits of rated criteria Rated criteria are weighted and evaluated using a scoring system Allows objective comparison of quality between different solutions Rated criteria may be applied to: identify the highest scoring proposed solutions assess innovative solutions criteria that cannot be expressed in monetary terms

Rewards proposals that exceed minimum requirements and demonstrate best overall VfM Decision to award contract is based on the optimum combination of quality + cost Slide 66 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Rated criteria (cont.) To minimize subjectivity: criteria should be material and relevant to the needs each criterion should be clearly described scoring methodology should be appropriate to the nature + complexity of procurement weightings are based on relative importance include the criteria, scores and scoring methodology in the Initial Selection/RFP document - proposers should be fully informed Ensure: borrower has capacity to develop rated criteria and scoring methodology

evaluation panel understands how to apply the criteria and methodology evaluation report details the scoring and justifies the recommendation Slide 67 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP GWNcS Performance based specifications new features RFP Selection Method promotes performance based specifications RFP Performance specifications: borrower describes the outcome or results to be achieved in terms of business or functional performance requirements RFB Conformance specifications: borrower describes in detail the technical requirements of the design, method of production, construction

and/or delivery or implementation Slide 68 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP GWNcS Best and Final Offer (BAFO) new features An option in international competitive procurement where borrower requests BAFOs Used following evaluation and before contract award, when the procurement would benefit from bidders/proposers having a final opportunity to improve their bids/proposals Must signal in the procurement document that BAFO may be used Borrowers discretion to use will depend on market response If used, bidders/proposers are not required to submit a BAFO There cannot be Negotiation after BAFO If BAFO is used must employ independent Probity Assurance Provider Probity report shared with Bank, sent to proposers and published on borrowers website

BAFO and Negotiation are mutually exclusive i.e. you cannot use both in a single procurement Slide 69 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP GWNcS Negotiation new features An option, in international competitive procurement, that allows the borrower to conduct a negotiation following evaluation and before contract award Must signal in the procurement document that Negotiation may be used Borrowers discretion to use will depend on market response Negotiation may address terms and conditions, price, social/ environmental aspects + innovation BUT must not materially change the borrowers requirements Sequence: must negotiate first with the bidder/proposer with the MAB/P if outcome unsuccessful, negotiate with next MAB/P Must be held in presence of independent probity assurance provider

Probity report is shared with the Bank Slide 70 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP GWNcS 2 envelope process new features What is the 2 envelope process? Technical parts and financial parts of bids/proposals put in separate envelopes Both envelopes are submitted simultaneously before the deadline At first opening only technical envelopes opened financial envelopes are kept in safe custody At second opening financial envelopes (for technically qualified bids/proposals) are opened Why have a 2 envelope process? Evaluation of technical parts is not influenced by price In BAFO/Negotiation helps maintain competitive tension between bidders/proposers

Slide 71 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP GWNcS Closed opening new features Default position = maintain practice of public openings for both technical and financial parts Exception = closed opening with probity auditor = option that may be applied: two-envelope process, with RFP for goods, works or non-consulting services where BAFO or Negotiation are applied Closed opening with probity auditor = new process when opening financial envelopes: opened in the presence of a probity assurance provider (not in public) auditor prepares a probity report deferred disclosure = at the same time as sending Notification of Intention

to Award the borrower: sends the probity report to proposers publishes report on website RFP GWNcS Closed opening (continued) new features Why closed opening and deferred publication of information? Proposers do not learn each others prices Maintains competitive tension while not compromising: integrity = as done in presence of probity assurance provider transparency = as full information is released later in the probity report Reflects modern commercial practice Slide 73 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents RFP GWNcS Most Advantageous Proposal (MAP) new features New test to determine the successful proposal

When rated criteria are used: example Request for Proposals The most advantageous proposal is the proposal: 1. of the proposer that meets the qualification criteria, and 2. whose proposal has been determined to be: a. substantially responsive to the RFP document, and b. the best evaluated proposal (i.e. the highest scored proposal) In this scenario the MAP represents the best VfM, which may not be the lowest evaluated cost Slide 74 NPF | Standard Procurement Documents Questions?
