The Government of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana (GOGY) has received financing from the Caribbean Development Bank (CDB) allocated from resources provided to CDB by the European Union (EU) under the CARIFORUM-EU EPA and the CARICOM Single Market and Economy Standby Facility for Capacity Building towards the cost of the Strengthening Surveillance Programmes for Bovine Tuberculosis and Bovine Brucellosis to Improve Market Access for Guyana Cattle Project and intends to apply a portion of the proceeds to eligible payments under this contract. Payment by CDB will be made only at the request of GOGY and upon approval by CDB, and will be subject, in all respects, to the terms and conditions of the Grant Agreement. The Grant Agreement prohibits a withdrawal from the Finance Account for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import, to the knowledge of CDB, is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations. No party other than the GOGY & GLDA shall derive any rights from the Grant Agreement or have any claim to the proceeds of the Grant.

The objective of the consultancy is to strengthen the GOGY Bovine Tuberculosis (BTB) and Bovine Brucellosis Surveillance programme with the view of safeguarding prospects for food security while establishing strategic linkages in the regional and surrounding export markets.  Further details can be found in the attached Terms of Reference.  The duration of the assignment is expected to be for a period of 190 days over 8 calendar months. The GLDA now invites interested eligible consulting firms to submit Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the provision of these consultancy services.
