Kiribati Institute of Technology (KIT) upgrades and Youth Learning Centre (YLC)

MFAT, with the support of the Government of Kiribati (GOK), intends to formally engage with the market in order to identify and engage a design and build contractor to carry out two projects located in Betio, South Tarawa in Kiribati. The two projects are:

• Kiribati Institute of Technology (KIT) project: Design and construction of new 2-storey buildings comprising of classrooms and simulation labratories together with a student services building, an outdoor kitchen, ablutions block, and upgrade of the campus electrical system/other utilities as required. The buildings are within the existing KIT campus in Betio and the construction will require careful planning to avoid disruption to the ongoing operation of the campus.
• Youth Learning Centre (YLC) project: Construction only of a 2-storey dedicated, youth-focused facility on a new site in Betio adjacent to the KIT campus.
MFAT is looking to engage a contractor who has the experience, capacity, and capability to complete both projects within the specified time, cost, quality, and broader development outcome requirements under two separate contracts. These contracts will comprise a design and construct contract for the KIT project and a construct-only contract for the YLC project.

MFAT and GOK are committed to using development activities to support the economic development of Kiribati especially in Kiribati's recovery from economic damage due to Covid-19. There will be a particular focus on tenderers’ willingness and ability to maximise the use of local materials, labour and provide training to develop local knowledge and skills.
