The Grenada "Ridge to Reef Project" is designed to support Grenada's compliance with a number of agreed-upon international environmental management and conservation strategies, policies and plans with the technical and financial assistance from the Global Environmental Facility (GEF). The project intervention is essentially a complement to the Government of Grenada's efforts, on the local level, to fulfil its obligations to various United Nations Convention and Protocols with respect to biodiversity and eco-systems functions/services by applying program/based delivery systems.
The Project will improve the sustainability of the protected areas system and address the need and deliberate application of biodiversity, sustainable land management, sustainable forest management/Reduction of emissions from deforestation and degradation of forests, land degradation and climate change adaptation principles and practices.
The Ridge to Reef Project will provide multiple global and local benefits by strengthening land, forest and reef management processes (eco-systems functions) and biodiversity conservation on all terrestrial landscapes and marine asand seascapes in Grenada, especially within and around the marine and terrestrial protected areas. This will be achieved through a multi-focal strategy having a “Ridge to Reef” approach that increases protected areas’ management effectiveness and applies targeted land management practices to include:
Need for Protected Area Management Plans
In addition to the establishment of marine and terrestrial protected areas as part of a national land use system, it is critical to have a management plan for each protected area within the system. Currently, there are seven management plans for protected areas in Grenada’s overall system. Six other management plans for Mt. St. Catherine, Morne Gazo, Conference Bay, White Island, Rhone Island Archipelago and Levera, are being prepared as part of the Project.
The Ridge to Reef project calls for the revision of five existing protected area management plans (Moliniere/Beausejour Marine Protected Area, Sandy Island/Oyster Bay Marine Protected Area, Mt. Hartman National Park, Perseverance Protected Area and Grand Etang/Annandale Forest Reserve) to ensure that these management plan address the components in IUCN Management Planning for Natural World Heritage Properties-A Resource Manual for Practioners-2008 and specifically ensure keen and deliberate application of the following principles and practices, as appropriate:
DOCUMENTS TO BE INCLUDED WHEN SUBMITTING THE PROPOSALS
Interested individual consultants must submit the following documents/information to demonstrate their qualifications:

3. Financial proposal
Lump sum contracts
The financial proposal shall specify a total lump sum amount, and payment terms around specific and measurable (qualitative and quantitative) deliverables (i.e. whether payments fall in installments or upon completion of the entire contract). Payments are based upon output, i.e. upon delivery of the services specified in the TOR. In order to assist the requesting unit in the comparison of financial proposals, the financial proposal will include a breakdown of this lump sum amount (including travel, per diems, and number of anticipated working days).

In the case of unforeseeable travel, payment of travel costs including tickets, lodging and terminal expenses should be agreed upon, between the respective business unit and Individual Consultant, prior to travel and will be reimbursed.
Individual consultants will be evaluated based on the following methodology:
When using this weighted scoring method, the award of the contract should be made to the individual consultant whose offer has been evaluated and determined as:
a) responsive/compliant/acceptable, and
b) Having received the highest score out of a pre-determined set of weighted technical and financial criteria specific to the solicitation.
* Technical Criteria weight; [70%]
