REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL: No. CAI/RFP/004/2019 FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A FRAME AGREEMENT(s) FOR THE PROVISION OF FINANCIAL SERVICES FOR DELIVERING CASH BASED INTERVENTIONS IN EGYPT

INTRODUCTION TO UNHCR

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established on December 14, 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency is mandated to lead and co-ordinate international action to protect refugees and resolve refugee problems worldwide. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees to guarantee that they have the right of asylum in another country as well as to identify durable solution for them, like voluntary repatriation in safe and dignified conditions; local integration in the country of asylum or resettlement in another country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people and is also involved in helping internally displaced persons. Internally displaced persons face similar problems to refugees, yet they are on the run in their country of origin. The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees therefore also seeks to ensure the protection of displaced persons as well as mitigate the reasons for their displacement.

In more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 16,000 people in more than 138 countries continues to help about 65 million persons. To help and protect some of the world’s most vulnerable people in so many places and types of environment, UNHCR must purchase goods and services worldwide. For further information on UNHCR, its mandate and operations please see http://www.unhcr.org.

In Egypt, UNHCR signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Egyptian Government on 10 February 1954 that authorized its work in the country and outlined the responsibilities of the Government and UNHCR in regard to the protection of refugees and asylum-seekers. Under the agreement, UNHCR carries out asylum activities (reception, registration, documentation, and refugee status determination) on behalf of the Government. As part of its protection function, UNHCR has also been providing cash assistance to refugees and asylum seekers for decades. This humanitarian cash assistance is provided to vulnerable refugees and asylum seekers to partially meet their most pressing needs including food, rent, education and other basic commodities and services. This assistance is also a means of protection support that empowers registered refugees and asylum seekers to positively and effectively contribute to the well-being of the communities they live amongst.
