The United States Agency for International Development Regional Contracting Office (RCO/Kosovo) intends to issue a Request for Proposals (RFP) on behalf of its client Mission, USAID/Kosovo. As part of a $7 million program entitled Contract Law Enforcement (CLE) Program to be implemented in Kosovo, USAID anticipates making one direct award for a cost-plus-fixed-fee completion, three-year contract for approximately $6,650,000 USD.

The goal of the CLE Program is to implement activities which focus on improving the rule of law structures that will lead to a better environment for economic growth and increased investment. The Program will aim at improving the overall contract and commercial law framework. It will do this by improving the quality of professionals focusing on contract and commercial law issues such as judges, lawyers and other legal professionals including jurists working for the business community. The Program will also aim at supporting the implementation of the anticipated new law on execution procedure, including the establishment and the functioning of a new bailiff system. Building mechanisms for and completing the reduction of the execution backlog will be an important part of the Program. Activities will be undertaken with the aim of improving the functioning of the arbitration tribunals and mediation mechanisms including the enforcement of arbitration awards and mediation agreements. Finally, the Program will work with the business community in order to establish a dialogue and make sure that all the above-mentioned reforms have been transformed into the business' community operations in daily practice.

The two objectives of the CLE Program are to:

1. Improve systems for Enforcement of Judgments and Reduction of the Backlog in Enforcement Cases; and
2. Develop the Contract and Commercial Law Framework and Systems, improvement of contract enforcement systems and the functioning of Alternative Dispute Resolution mechanisms;

The CLE Program will be implemented through partnerships with the Kosovo Judicial Council, the Ministry of Justice, the Central Bank, the Commercial Departments of the Pristina Basic Court and Court of Appeals (to be established by January 2013), the Special Chamber of the Supreme Court, the Kosovo Chamber of Commerce, and the American Chamber of Commerce, among others.

This will be a full and open competition and the procedures set forth in FAR Part 15 shall apply. Except for the above, no additional information regarding this planned RFP is available at this time. All necessary information will be supplied when the RFP is posted on o/a 5 business days of this notice. Questions/requests for information will not be responded to until RFP issuance.

Prospective Offerors are advised that this procurement is subject to internal USAID approvals and availability of funds. This pre-solicitation notice in no way obligates USAID to release a solicitation or to award a contract.
