  • Issue Date: Feb 15,2018
  • Closing Date: Mar 15,2018


The WBG is seeking a qualified contractor to manage and operate its Global Meetings Management Program (GMMP) in support of its Headquarters and Country Offices. There are seven regions which the GMMP supports where there are a number of WBG country offices within each region (except North America). Each country office plans for its own meetings and events and is responsible for coordinating them through the GMMP.  

WBG’s objective is to establish a performance-based managed solution in support of the GMMP.  Specific areas of importance include overall contract performance levels in terms of quality of service, seamless operations, cost efficiency, and cost controls.

In locations where the Contractor cannot provide services through their own network, subcontractors may be used to supplement their capacity and the full range of support.  However, all subcontractors are the full responsibility of the Contractor and shall be managed by the Contractor under the terms of the SLAs as set forth under the SOW.

It is WBG’s expectation to create an enabling, Best-in-Class, environment in partnership with the GMMP Contractor for ongoing, relevant training and support of the Contractor’s performance. We encourage collaboration with internal stakeholders and clients to achieve optimum Contractor performance in support of the GMMP program objectives. As part of the RFP and subsequent Contract, Offerors /Contractor will be expected to focus and report on its initiatives for sustainability, including diversity and small- and women- owned businesses for their Tier 2 and Tier 3 Suppliers. This represents an excellent opportunity for local and regional vendor participation.  The Contractor will report periodically on the development and implementation of its environmental and social responsibility programs in terms of performance within their corporate business operations as well as directly in support of the WBG’s GMMP.
