The GIZ FIT for School program is designed to be simple, sustainable, scalable and following a systematic approach to transform schools into healthy learning environments where routine hygiene practices turn into long-term habits. The program has supported the Ministry of Education and Culture (MOEC) to improve the status of WASH in Schools (WinS) in Indonesia since 2011.
In response to COVID-19, GIZ is supporting the government efforts for schools safe re-opening, specifically regarding personal and environmental hygiene conditions. The aim is for schools to comply with SDG basic service standards and global recommendations to prevent COVID-19 transmission.
One of the program targets is to provide a thousand of WASHaLOT 3.0 units for the public schools located in Jakarta and West Java. WASHaLOT 3.0 is a handwashing facility which is designed to be mobile, water-saving, and modular, can be mass-produced and easily transported, quickly deployed in schools and other public facilities. GIZ commissioned TSB to identify potential companies in Jabodetabek area to mass produce of WASHaLOT 3.0 units.
Owing to the TSB’s networks, TSB identified and conduct a pre-bidding process amongst 25 companies. The process comprised of listing the potential companies, verifying their legal ability for bidding, sharing & explaining the required technical design and contacting all the companies to seek for their interest to participate in the bidding process. Successfully, TSB recommended ten shortlisted companies as eligible for the GIZ bidding process.
