07.06 After the opening

All bids received will be kept in the procurement file for the duration stipulated in the WHO Records retention schedule.

Offers received late will be discarded unopened.

In the case of an RFP, the financial offers that are kept sealed after the technical bid opening will be safeguarded by the specified receiver; they will be opened only for those bids that are technically qualified under the RFP requirements.

After opening, the technical bids (in the case of an RFP) or the complete bids (in the case of an ITB) will be handed to the staff conducting procurement for evaluation. The staff conducting procurement will be responsible for safeguarding the offers.
