Ethiopia to Procure 200,000tn Wheat through UN

The Ethiopian government is to procure around 200,000tn of milling wheat through the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The tender, divided into four lots of 50,000tn each, is set to close on October 8, 2021, and the wheat is expected to be delivered within 90 days of contract signing. The tender is the latest attempt by the government to acquire the grain after similar efforts ended unsuccessfully this year. A bid for 400,000tn of wheat floated by UNOPS in June this year was scrapped due to what insiders say was a "shift in priorities." That same month, another bid for a similar amount was cancelled as the only bidder failed to meet technical requirements.
