To procure the services of a firm to provide Remote Simultaneous Interpretation (RSI) for several events and interpretation services for one physical event in South Africa for ATAF

The “Good Financial Governance in Africa II [GFG] Programme”, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH on behalf of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development [BMZ], promotes transparency, accountability and domestic resource mobilisation in Africa. Seeking to improve good financial governance in the action fields tax policy and administration, budget reform, external audit and legislative oversight, the programme works with four regional public finance networks that offer country-specific and technical advice for their members: The African Tax Administration Forum [ATAF], the Collaborative Africa Budget Reform Initiative [CABRI], the African Organisation of Public Accounts Committees [AFROPAC] and the African Organisation of Supreme Audit Institutions [AFROSAI]. As an additional cross-cutting element, the programme supports efforts to strengthen an African voice in global debates on topics of good financial governance.

In the area of tax policy and tax administration, the African Tax Administration Forum [ATAF] is the key partner of the GFG in Africa programme. Founded in 2009 as an association of currently 40 African tax administrations, ATAF strives to provide a platform to improve the performance of tax administration in Africa, driven by the firm conviction that better tax administrations will enhance economic growth, increase accountability of the states to their citizens and mobilise domestic resources more effectively.

GFG seeks to appoint a Professional Service Provider Firm to provide the following services for ATAF’s training courses and/or events:

Remote simultaneous interpretation (RSI) services for ATAF’s training courses/ events;

Translation services for documents related to ATAF’s training courses/ events; and

Sound equipment and booths etc., for an event requiring interpretation that is likely to be organised physically in South Africa.

The services will be procured over the course of a defined period from June to September, 2022, and through a qualified pool of interpreters with appropriate knowledge, proficiency and experience providing interpretation services using tax and/or public finance technical vocabulary in English<> French interpreters and English<> Portuguese as well as using RSI through platform such as Zoom.  One event is however foreseen to take place physically in South Africa and will therefore require the Service Provider to provide relevant interpretation and sound equipment and booths etc.

It is also expected that the Service Provider will also provide a pool of competent and professional translators with the appropriate knowledge, proficiency and experience providing translation services using tax and/or public finance technical vocabulary in English, French and/or Portuguese.
