ORDER:
     In order  to  avoid classroom  hunger, to  increase  school  enrolment, to increase  school  attendance  and  to  address malnutrition  the  Mid-Day Meal  Scheme  is  implemented  in  the  State.  In  the State of  Andhra Pradesh  nearly  36.10 lakh  students  of  I to X classes are being served Mid  Day  Meal  every  year.  As  per existing  norms  chicken  eggs  are to  be provided  for  five  days per  week  per  child under  MDM  scheme.

2.   Integrated  Child  Development  Services (ICDS)  scheme  for early childhood  care, aimed at health, nutrition  &  development needs of infant  children, Pregnant and Lactating mothers. As a supplementary nutrition,  chicken eggs are  being  supplied.

3.   In  the reference  4th  read  above,  permission  has  been  accorded to  the Commissioner of  School  Education  to  cancel  the  existing  egg tenders in  view  of  supply of  poor  quality  permitted to  call  for  tenders afresh by incorporating modified  tender   quality &  Monitoring standards,  eligibility  conditions  in  tender  document  as  mentioned  in  the reference 3rd read  above and finalise  tenders in a 2  months period  for procurement  of  chicken  eggs  under MDM  scheme.  Till  then,  procure chicken eggs  from  the  existing  suppliers.

4.   In  the reference  5th  read  above,  the Commissioner of  School Education has submitted that at  present, chicken eggs are  being procured  from  the  agencies,  by  the District  Purchase  Committee duly calling open  tenders. The  cost of egg is being paid  as per the  rates published  by NECC  uniformly, but  the  transportation  charges alone  are being decided by the  District  Purchase  Committee.  It  is noticed  from the existing   system  of  procurement  that  there is  an  irregular supply  of eggs  by  the agencies,  which  defeats  the purpose meant  for and  undue rates of transportation charges  causing huge  financial loss to Government. Under  existing Tender  terms and conditions, the Purchaser  reserves  the  right to  cancel  the  tender  at any point of  time without  assigning any reason  thereof.
5.     In  order to  avoid  such  redundant  loss  to  Government  and  for continuous supply  of  chicken eggs,  the  eligibility criteria  are  revisited for  procurement of  eggs to  enable  more  number  of  bidders, especially the  Poultry Farmers to  participate  in tenders. It is further  decided to procure chicken  eggs  at  Divisional  Level  (Educational Division)  to minimise  the  transportation charges.

6.   In  view of  the above circumstances and after careful examination of  the entire issue,  Government  hereby  cancel  the existing district-wise tender  for procurement of  chicken eggs under  Mid-Day  Meal Scheme and ICDS  Scheme  and permission  is accorded  to the  Commissioner  of School  Education,  A.P.  to  float a new tender  for  procurement of  eggs under  MDM scheme  and ICDS with  the  following eligibility criteria:
    (a)  The project  area (division  of  supply) of  the Tender shall  be  the Educational  Division.

    (b)  The method  of  quoting  of  price shall  be  the discount  proposed  to be  agreed  on  monthly  average NECC price of  egg  and transportation  charges.The  bidder,  who  proposed  to give maximum discount  on monthly  average  NECC price  of  chicken egg and less transportation charges,  shall be  considered  as L.1 bidder.

    (c) Selection of  eligible  bidder(s) and award of  contract shall be purely as per Reverse Tendering  Process,  terms/guidelines,  issued  by Government from  time  to  time.

    (d)  Periodicity for supply of  eggs  at  the  doorstep  of  AWCS  and  School points  shall be  once  in 10  days  irrespective  of  tribal, rural or  urban area.

    (e) Minimum weight  of  chicken egg shall be  50  grams. Chicken Eggs shall  be  supplied  in  paper-pulp  trays @  30  eggs per  tray.
