Los Angeles, CA | November 20th, 2018 UCP Wheels for Humanity (UCP Wheels) is pleased to announce the launch of its second Invitation to Bid (ITB) through the USAID-funded Consolidating Logistics for Assistive Technology Supply and Provision II (CLASP II) project. The goal of CLASP is to improve the availability of and access to appropriate assistive products in less resourced settings and to promote quality service provision. Key to improving access to appropriate products is diversifying the range of products offered through the CLASP catalogue.

The second ITB is for the following product classes:

• Manual wheelchairs with postural support devices for adults and children (also known as intermediate level products as per the World Health Organization’s definition).

• Postural Support Accessories.

• Wheelchair cushions for adult and pediatric wheelchairs.

Eligible bidders are wheelchair suppliers worldwide that meet the criteria outlined in the ITB. Proposals will be evaluated by CLASP’s Product Advisory Council against an assessment rubric, which is outlined in the ITB.

Please circulate this message to wheelchair suppliers in your network. Interested suppliers can email pac@clasphub.org for a copy of the ITB.

Questions on the ITB must be submitted to pac@clasphub.org by December 3rd, 2018 and responses will be posted on clasphub.org by December 10th, 2018.
