Procurement of Small Works- April 2015 

These SBDSW are based on the July 2008 Master Bidding Documents for Procurement of Small Works, prepared by the Multilateral Development Banks and International Financing Institutions. The Master Bidding Documents reflect “best practices” by these institutions. These SBDSW reflect the structure and the provisions of the Master Bidding Documents, except where specific considerations within the World Bank have required a change.

This Standard Bidding Document for Procurement of Small Works is to be used when a prequalification process has not taken place before bidding and, therefore, post-qualification applies.
