DRC - EoI For Financial Service Provider | EOI001MOS2020

Expression of Interest No.: EOI001MOS2020 – For Financial Service Provider

Dear Sir/Madam:

DRC is providing support to displacement-affected communities in Tel Afar, Ninewa in order to have enhanced resilience through improved basic services, community-based protection and socio-economic self-reliance support.

This Expression of Interest (EOI) process is the first stage of a multi-stage process. DRC intends to distribute staff salaries and vehicle car hire rental fees up to a total monthly value of 145,000,000 IQD through one or more FINANCIAL SERVICE PROVIDERS (FSPs). The FSPs passing the evaluation of the EOI will be invited to participate in a Request For Proposal (RFP).

The goal is to disburse staff salaries within close proximity to their location of work within Ninewa at the end of every month, in areas which do not have banks. It also intends to provide flexibility for staff to withdraw cash at their leisure, at a time that suits them. The transfer should take in to consideration staff safety so that monthly withdrawal need not be 100% at one time, and staff should not be able to know when each member cashes their salary. This will cover all DRC’s program sector and support staff: Shelter and Infrastructure, Livelihoods, Protection, Community Engagement, Supply Chain, Finance, and HR.

DRC seeks the EOI from different FSPs to provide their services in the implementation of DRC’s Cash Transfer Programme (CTP).  Selected institution(s) will be required to provide the most effective and efficient cash delivery mechanisms CTP modalities.

Options to deliver cash can be, but not limited to:  

  • Direct cash distribution through money transfer agents / microfinance agents
  • Cheques / cash distribution through branches available in the intervention areas
  • Prepaid / Debit / Smart cards
  • Mobile money

DRC invites qualified FSPs to submit their EOI before the deadline as stipulated in the section below.


The EOI details are as follows:
