Bangladesh: RFP for Selection of surveyor for bulk wheat survey at Chittagong Port

Organization: World Vision
Country: Bangladesh
Closing date: 13 Nov 2016

World Vision International in Bangladesh is humanitarian not for profit organization is importing 40,650MT of wheat (bulk) donated by the United States Government through United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) for monetization in Bangladesh There are two vessels, we expect the first vessel “LIBERTY GRACE” US Flag carrying approximately 20,330MT, ETA is 2nd week of December 2016 Another vessel “LIBERTY GLORY” US flag will carry 20,320MT, ETA is 2nd week of January 2017 at the port of Chittagong. Both the ship will carry commodities for CARE Bangladesh and Helen Keller International in mixed hatches (no segregation of commodity). The surveyor will be recruited by World Vision Bangladesh on behalf of USDA.

The purpose of the survey is to conduct outturn cargo discharge and delivery survey according to USDA requirements at the port of Chittagong, which will be discharged to government silo under controlled by Controller, Movement and Storage (CMS), Food Department, Chittagong. Please note that we therefore require surveys of the following:

a) Load and Light Draft survey for mother and lighter vessel

b) Storage facilities at port for total cargo

c) Continuous monitoring of discharge activities at port

d) Record physical quality of the commodity in hatch

e) Record hatch conditions on arrival of the ship and during discharge

Please note that survey for storage at the port will not be there at Chittagong port but it is incumbent upon vessel Owners to arrange railcars/facility for direct loading. Discharge is basis thru B/L full berth terms with no demurrage, dispatch or detention. So, if Owners do not arrange rail cars/facility then the vessel must wait or come up with a creative alternative, like discharging cargo into a cheaper “storage vessel” at the port. If the service provider does not follow the tender document practices, it will be not allowed to claim the survey fee’s amount, the payment will be made only after the report is accepted by USDA

USAID independent survey regulations apply as articulated in Regulation 11 (
