The Grantee invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the "Proposal") from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to develop a technical assistance to produce a statewide airport capital improvement plan and develop a roadmap and implementation plan to modernize and expand the state of Bahia's airport network.

This technical assistance funding for SEINFRA will serve several purposes. First, it will help the State of Bahia to prioritize upgrades for Feira de Santana Airport, located in the state's second largest municipality. Second, the technical assistance will also provide a program to update the remainder of the state's airport network by identifying modernization needs and key technologies to allow night operation capabilities at eight priority airports identified by SEINFRA. These technologies would then be replicated to the entire state's airport network in order of priority.


The State of Bahia is the largest state in northeastern Brazil in terms of economic output, fifth largest in size, and the fourth most populous in the country. SEINFRA is responsible for the planning, coordination, supervision, and implementation of studies, programs, and public works, in the transport, energy and communications sectors in the State, including airport infrastructure, as well as cargo and logistics projects.


The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $345,060 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA).


A detailed Request for Proposals (RFP), which includes requirements for the Proposal, the Terms of Reference, and portions of a background definitional mission report are available from USTDA, at 1000 Wilson Boulevard, Suite 1600, Arlington, VA 22209-3901. To request the RFP in PDF format, please go to:

Requests for a mailed hardcopy version of the RFP may also be faxed to the IRC, USTDA at 703-875-4009. In the fax, please include your firm's name, contact person, address, and telephone number. Some firms have found that RFP materials sent by U.S. mail do not reach them in time for preparation of an adequate response. Firms that want USTDA to use an overnight delivery service should include the name of the delivery service and your firm's account number in the request for the RFP. Firms that want to send a courier to USTDA to retrieve the RFP should allow one hour after faxing the request to USTDA before scheduling a pick-up. Please note that no telephone requests for the RFP will be honored. Please check your internal fax verification receipt. Because of the large number of RFP requests, USTDA cannot respond to requests for fax verification. Requests for RFPs received before 4:00 PM will be mailed the same day. Requests received after 4:00 PM will be mailed the following day. Please check with your courier and/or mail room before calling USTDA.


Only U.S. firms and individuals may bid on this USTDA financed activity. Interested firms, their subcontractors and employees of all participants must qualify under USTDA's nationality requirements as of the due date for submission of qualifications and proposals and, if selected to carry out the USTDA-financed activity, must continue to meet such requirements throughout the duration of the USTDA-financed activity. All goods and services to be provided by the selected firm shall have their nationality, source and origin in the U.S. or host country.

Interested U.S. firms should submit their Proposal in English and Portuguese directly to the Grantee by 1:00 PM, December 27th, 2012 at the above address. Evaluation criteria for the Proposal are included in the RFP. Price will not be a factor in contractor selection, and therefore, cost proposals should NOT be submitted.

The Grantee is not bound to pay for any costs associated with the preparation and submission of Proposals.
