Giga works to unlock financing for school connectivity and supports governments to implement diverse technology solutions, business models and operating arrangements to provide meaningful and sustainable connectivity to schools and communities.
As part of this process, Giga supports governments to contract school connectivity and monitors that the quality of the services that schools receive adheres to the service level agreements defined in contracts.
Through UNICEF Country Offices, Giga frequently contracts Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and other companies to connect schools in various countries around the world. All the procurement documents (Requests for Information, Requests for Expression of Interest, Requests for Proposals) are posted in this page.
There are no open procurements at the moment.
