The AFCAC Plenary has long required that an independent cost-benefit study including an assessment of socio-economic impact be conducted for the development of SBAS in Africa.
To this end, a Task Team had been created under the leadership of AFCAC to develop Terms of Reference for this study which will be funded by the African Union Commission (AUC).
The Terms of Reference were presented through a working paper at the 13th Air Navigation Conference (AN-Conf-WP / 222), which requested ICAO to support this important and necessary study.
After having adopted the Terms of Reference for the independent study, the African Union Commission has launched a call for tenders for the recruitment of consultants.
In this regard, please find attached on behalf of the Secretary General of AFCAC the AUC invitation to tender and the extension of the closing date of the bid, which is 13 May 2020.
Finally, please note that AFCAC would be grateful if you could assist in the dissemination of the Tender to potential consulting firms with competencies to conduct such a study.
