This Standard Bid Evaluation Form has been prepared by the World Bank1 for use by its Borrowers and their implementing agencies in the evaluation of bids, in accordance with the provisions of the Bank's Guidelines: Procurement under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits, January 1995, revised January and August 1996, and September 1997, referred to hereafter as "Guidelines" (see in particular para. 2.53 and Appendix 1, subparas. 2 and 4 of the Guidelines). All loans and credits negotiated after March 15, 1995 are governed by the 1995 edition.

It should also prove useful, with appropriate modifications, to Borrowers for evaluation under National Competitive Bidding (NCB) procedures.

Upon notification of contract award to the successful bidder by the Borrower, and in accordance with the General Conditions of the Loan or Credit Agreement, the Bank is authorized to publish a description of the contract, the name and nationality of the contract awardee, and the contract price.
