Consulting Services - Tender Ref 09.21- Auditing Services for CarBi II Project

I. WWF – Vietnam would like to inform all interested Bidders the following clarifications to Request for Proposal of Tender Ref 09.21 "Auditing Services to Project: Biodiversity Conservation in the Central Annamites through Ecosystem Protection and Land management (CarBi Phase II) Project”:

Auditor's question:  

Through the website, we know that WWF is looking for a professional Auditing Company to provide Auditing services for the projects “Biodiversity Conservation in the Central Annamites through Ecosystem Protection and Land management (CarBi Phase II)”. Regarding the location of document supply listed on the Invitation to Bids, you mentioned 3 places namely WWF – Laos, WWF – Vietnam (Hanoi Office and Hue Office). So could you please clarify where the audit can be performed during the Audit fieldwork? And, do Auditors need to be onsite at all those locations above?  

WWF-Viet Nam's response:

Yes, the activities are implemented in Lao and Viet Nam and the financial supporting documents are available in WWF-Laos and WWF-Viet Nam (Hanoi/Hue offices). The auditors are supposed to be onsite at all locations, surely to Hanoi/Hue and optional to Lao depending on travel possibility to Lao due to Covid19. The scenario to work on a scanned document sent from Lao side can be considered.

WWF was one of the first International non-government organizations working in Vietnam. In 1985, WWF began working on a national conservation strategy and since then has worked closely with the Vietnamese Government on a diverse range of environmental issues and implemented field activities across the country.
