Request for Proposals: Procurement of IT Equipment in Mozambique
Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation/ World Economic Forum

1. Background
The Global Alliance for Trade Facilitation is a public-private partnership for trade-led growth, supporting governments in developing and least-developed countries in implementing the World Trade Organization’s Trade Facilitation Agreement. Alliance projects cut through red tape and end costly delays at borders by bringing together governments and businesses of all sizes as equal partners to deliver targeted trade reforms.

By emphasising digitisation and delivering other best practices, Alliance projects enable businesses to trade more easily thanks to streamlined and more predictable processes. Governments save time and resources by modernising trade procedures while still safeguarding their borders. Ultimately, Alliance projects boost trade competitiveness and business conditions, which are key drivers of inclusive economic growth and poverty reduction.

The Alliance is led by the Center for International Private Enterprise, the International Chamber of Commerce, and the World Economic Forum, in cooperation with Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). It is funded by the governments of the United States, Canada, Germany, and Denmark.

In Mozambique, the Alliance is supporting the government to facilitate the importation of vaccines and rapid test kits for malaria and HIV. As part of these projects, the Alliance is procuring equipment that will be used to support two Mozambican government agencies to connect to the country’s electronic single window system. The selected supplier will deliver and install the required equipment and software in the agencies’ premises in Maputo.
