Requests for Proposals
Through its Accelerate programme, Giga explores diverse technologies, business models and regulatory arrangements to provide broadband connectivity to schools and communities. The insights from these procurements help guide governments’ connectivity programs.
As part of this process, UNICEF Country Offices frequently contract Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to connect schools in various countries around the world. Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for these procurements are posted on this page.
Giga and the Government of Uzbekistan are looking for local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to implement an innovative, sustainable and scalable model in which schools act as ‘connectivity hubs’ and redistribute internet access to local communities within a 5-kilometer radius.
In collaboration with the Government of Sierra Leone, Giga has launched a second Request for Proposals (RFP) to select suppliers to enter a Long-Term Agreement (LTA) for the provision of internet connectivity services to public schools to increase access to digital learning.
Zardaly, an isolated village up in the mountains in Southern Kyrgyzstan, is home to about 150 people who live without electricity and communication. A mountain trail is the only direct route to Zardaly and donkeys are the most reliable form of transport.
