2.      The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) has applied for a Credit (in foreign currency) from the International development Association (IDA) and the proceeds of the Credit will be allocated by FDRE in foreign currency (upon payment of equivalent Birr, in accordance with the existing procedures) to be used for the importation of fertilizers by eligible importers.

4.      Bidders may bid for one or more or all of the Lots specified in Section VI-Schedule of Requirements-of this bidding document. Bids will be evaluated on a Lot by Lot basis.

This post qualification assessment also takes into consideration verifying whether the lowest evaluated and responsive bidder has indeed the capacity to execute the subject Lot together with other Lots that it has succeeded to be the lowest evaluated and responsive bidder. If the lowest evaluated and responsive bidders for a Lot does not fulfill the qualification requirements as discussed above, then the same post qualification assessment will continue for the second lowest evaluated and responsive bidder for that Lot. If the second lowest evaluated and responsive bidder is not qualified, the assessment process continues with the third lowest evaluated and responsive bidder etc.
