UN Women applies a fair and transparent selection process that takes into account both the technical qualification of potential consultants as well as the financial proposals submitted in support of consultant applications. Candidate applications will be evaluated using a cumulative analysis method taking into consideration the combination of applicant qualifications and financial proposal. The contract will be awarded to the individual consultant whose offer has been evaluated and determined as:
Having received the highest score out of below defined technical/interview and financial criteria.
Only candidates obtaining a minimum of 70 points in the technical evaluation will be considered for further evaluation process. The maximum number of points assigned to the financial proposal will be allocated to the lowest price proposal among the qualified candidates. All other price proposals receive points in inverse proportion.
Technical Evaluation including desk review/interview (70%).
Financial Evaluation (30%);
Technical evaluation criteria (including minimum qualifications):
Experience (a minimum of 10 years of progressive experience and demonstrated knowledge on research and policy analysis in the area of law, macroeconomic development, gender equality and women’s economic empowerment issues) (30);
Experience (a minimum of 3 years of experience in programmes and projects related to gender equality, migration and policy formulation) (15); and
Two research or position papers (35).
Evaluation of submitted financial offers will be done based on the following formula: S = Fmin / F * 30
S - Score received on financial evaluation; Fmin - the lowest financial offer out of all the submitted offers qualified over the technical evaluation round; F - financial offer under the consideration.
The candidate who scores highest cumulative score will be considered for the service.
In July 2010, the United nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women’s empowerment.
