Taqarib, DAI Project Support



The Libya Local Governance and Civil Society (LGCS)/ Taqarib Project (DAI) funded by USAID (United States Agency for International Development) is responsible for planning, designing, evaluating, permitting, implementing, maintaining, operating, and monitoring municipal government service delivery projects within key municipalities in Libya. The proposed contracts will provide full service Engineering Services on projects initiated by Taqarib. Work may be comprised of civil, structural, hydraulic, hydrologic, geotechnical, environmental, sanitary, electrical, mechanical, surveying, mapping, CAD and architectural design. Work may include, but is not limited to, engineering support for data collection, feasibility studies, numerical computer modeling, preparation of design reports, performing design analyses, value engineering, independent technical review, preparation of conceptual and contract drawings, contract specifications, cost estimating, construction contract administration and construction inspection services. Teaming is encouraged for Consultants submitting on these contracts. Under a proposed separate Request for Statement of Interest and Qualifications (RSIQ), additional contracts may be selected to perform limited engineering tasks not requiring the full service teams solicited herein. No timeframe is established yet for this proposed separate RSIQ.

Individuals who are interested in applying must have a valid registration to perform the requested services.

Multiple contracts will be awarded as a result of this advertisement. Standardized rate sheets will be distributed to each Consultant selected from this advertisement. Rate sheets will include a negotiated Office Rate and a Field Rate for each of the labor categories. The Office Rate shall be inclusive of all costs associated with labor, overhead, administrative costs, software, account management, and any other costs associated with the provision of services (including but not limited to standard equipment, computers, field sampling supplies, office supplies, copies, and routine safety equipment and materials).

The Field Rate shall consist of the items described in the Office Rate plus be inclusive of lodging, travel and per diem. Rates for specialized equipment should be submitted on a separate schedule. Compensation to the Consultant for services rendered in connection with each Task Order shall be based on negotiated work-hours using established billable rates mentioned above for the actual work performed on the Task Order or a negotiated lump sum compensation.


Consultants will perform engineering and related services for LGCS/ Taqarib projects on an as needed, Task Order basis. Consultants will be required to execute a Task Order which will specify the scope of services, task schedule, and compensation. Each Task Order will become a part of the IDIQ (Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity) Contract.

Consultants will be required to provide some or all the following services for each Task Order.
