1. The United Nations Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP) intends to conduct a competitive solicitation exercise for the provision of electrical contracting services island-wide on "as and when required" basis for an initial period of three years with the UNFICYP's sole option to extend the term of the contract for an additional two (2) periods of one year each (3+1+1).
