REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST 

Consultancy Services for Detailed Engineering Design Studies of the Jendema-Bo Waterside Joint Border Post (JBP) Between Liberia and Sierra Leone 

1. The Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS) Commission, as part of the  Regional Joint Border Post Development Program intends to undertake Consultancy  Services for the Design of a Joint Border Post at the Jendema-Bo-Waterside, a border  between the Republic of Liberia and Republic of Sierra Leone. The Joint Border Posts  (JBP) program is a community intervention aimed at facilitating border crossing formalities  and controls to reduce the cost and time spent at land borders between Member States by  bringing together officials from neighboring countries to undertake simultaneous and joint  controls to expedite movement. 

2. In 2008, the Commission and its Member States undertook a functionality study of several  key land borders, that looked at the processes, procedures, information management and  flow, flow of traffic and people in current operations (identifying unavoidable and avoidable  constraints) and those (procedures, processes and flows) that are anticipated for the  improved border posts. The functionality study resulted in the development of architectural  briefs which described the design options to be used as the bases for preparing customized  detailed designs for each border.  

3. The proposed/designed buildings (structural elements above ground level) as studied and  proposed in the functionality study reports must be remodeled in accordance with  investigations into the foundation elements since conditions between sites and even within  sites vary. Geotechnical investigations will therefore have to be carried out at the project site  (bearing capacity, etc.) to enable proper design of the respective foundations to suit the site  under consideration. For Civil Works (Road Alignment, Ground levels, Cross-Sections,  Drainage, Sewers, Parking Lots, etc.) there is a need to carry out Topographic Surveys and  other Engineering Surveys to allow for appropriate Engineering Designs of Geometric  Elements, Approach and internal Roads, Parking Lots, Drainage, etc. A key consideration of  this project will also be to provide social and economic activities/services for citizens of border  communities as well as dependent stakeholders such informal traders, cross-border women  traders, children, farmers, fishermen, etc. particular attention will therefore be paid to these  provisions under the Environmental and Social Impact Assessment component of the Study.  The main objective of the services under this project shall be the preparation of architectural and civil, electrical and mechanical engineering designs and tender documents (including  drawings, specifications, priced and unpriced bill of quantities (BOQ)) for the construction of 

a JBP. Furthermore, the services will involve the preparation of a general Lay-Out (Master  Plan), Conceptual Design and Detailed Engineering Design. 

4. The Contract duration will be five (5) months and will cover the study, review and  validation workshops by stakeholders as well as the submission of final designs with related  reports. 

5. The ECOWAS Commission invites eligible Consultants (consulting firms specialized in  transport infrastructure engineering) to submit their expression of interest in providing these  services. All interested eligible and qualified Consultants must provide information on their  qualifications and experience, demonstrating that they are qualified to provide similar services.  The criteria for preparing the shortlist are:: (a) General Experience in Building/Road  (Studies/Supervision) over the past 10 years (2009 – 2019); (b) Specific Experience in Studies  and Design of Buildings (two or more at the same site) with inter connected roads and facilities  during the past 10 years (2009 – 2019); (c) Similar experience in Building/road Projects in Sub
