The Central Tender Board (CTB) is responsible to coordinate and manage the Vanuatu Government's tender process for higher value procurement that the value of purchase exceeds VUV 10,000,000 threshold.

The primary mandate of CTB is to adjudicate and award tenders for Central Government and any other institutions specified under the Act for the delivery of works, services and supplies related services.

In accordance with Vanuatu Government's Law, HIGH-VALUE PROCUREMENT requires

  • Open and fair competition in normal circumstances involving the appropriate TENDER method,and
  • Approval of the GOV CENTRAL TENDERS BOARD for Tender Method and Documentation, Recommendation for Award of Contract and the draft Contract

When applying Request For Tenders (RFT), the form and content of tender documentation would depend on the procurement method decided upon (refer GOV Procurement Guidelines soon to be released)

In addition to RFTs and, in the case of high-value consulting services Requests for Proposals (RFPs):

  • For large and complex tenders SELECTIVE TENDERING, involving PRE-QUALIFICATION may be applied (in the case of Vanuatu this usually only applies to WORKS) thereby ensuring that invitations to bid are only issued to those suppliers/ contractors that have adequate capabilities and resources.
  • Where it is not feasible to define fully the technical or contractual aspects in order to elicit competitive tenders, a TWO STAGE TENDER may be applied whereby only those contractors/ suppliers that submitted acceptable technical proposals in the first stage may submit tenders in the second stage.
  • In exceptional circumstances, subject to the approval of the Central Tenders Board, a LIMITED TENDER may be applied. Such circumstances are provided in the GOV Procurement Guidelines.
