World bank had given assistance to buy 13 mobile health vans, fitted with latest mobile diagnostic equipments for pathology, x-ray, ultrasound and ECG. As Government thought it would be more efficient to run such a service with private participation as proved to be the case for Bhimtal Birla Institute run Mobile Health Van, it decided to explore PPP option.

After initial exercise of floating EOI, initially only for NGOs and later including the companies also, DOMHFW approached PPP Cell for assistance at RFP stage. PPP Cell took the data of Bhimtal Birla Institute Mobile Health Van to analyse the financial scenario for such a service. This prepared case for selecting appropriate bid criteria and service level requirements.

PPP cell prepared RFP and DCA which was sent to Finance, Law and Legislative departments. After usual interaction with these Departments RFP was given go ahead for release.

From the EOIs 4 bidders were selected inviting RFP. Each district bid was asked separately. total 26 bids were received. 14 bids were non responsive in nature. 1 was for lack of bid security and other 13 were from a single bidder for lack of signatures on every page of the bid document and lack CVs attachment as required.

Financial bid have been opened and currently under evaluation.
