The Central Bank of Egypt hereinafter referred to as “the Purchaser”, intends using part of the proceeds of a grant from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Transition Fund and the EBRD towards the cost of the Data Warehouse.

All grants will be administered by the EBRD.

The Purchaser now invites sealed tenders from Suppliers for the following, hereinafter referred to as “the Contract” to be funded from part of the proceeds of the grants.

The Contract to be financed with the proceeds of the Bank administered grant funds will be subject to the Bank"s Procurement Policies and Rules and will be open to firms and joint ventures from any country. The proceeds of the Bank administered grant funds will not be used for the purpose of any payment to persons or entities, or for any import of goods, if such payment or import is prohibited by a decision of the United Nations Security Council taken under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations or under a law of official regulation of the Purchaser"s country.

As part of the modernisation of the Egyptian government securities market, the Client will establish a Data Warehouse (DW) system.

The DW is intended to allow analysis by the Client of market data and, in particular, market liquidity using information supplied from either internal systems run by the Client or external systems. Examples of internal systems are the RTGS (the Client’s Real Time Gross Settlement system), the CSD (a new Client Central Securities Depository system) or external data sources such as exchange rates and indices.

The DW is not meant to be used for supervision purposes.

The key requirements of the systems, which will be specified in detail in the tender documents, are as follows.

• The DW must support a range of input methods. Eg Application Program Interface (API), Files in various format (fixed format, .csv, common standards such as FIX, ISO 15022 and ISO 20022) and user screen input

• The data that can be stored can be of different time scales

• The DW system must be capable of handling at least 7 years of historical data

• The DW system must enable users to retrieve data by either a file interface (for regularly produced reports) or by a screen-based interface

• The DW system must have the capability to analyse the information stored by using a query system on the data. The queries can be pre-defined or created by a user (and stored for later use) and can have parameters specified eg Start Date & End Date for data selection)

• The DW system must have a reporting capability based on the queries created by a user which can output results interactively, to a printer or to a file. File formats can be fixed format, Excel (.csv,.xls,.xlsx), Word (.doc, .docx) or Adobe PDF.

To be qualified for the award of a contract, tenderers must pass the minimum requirements for performance and technical characteristics as set out in Part 2 of the tender documents. Where more than one tenderer meets the minimum requirements, tenders will be evaluated according to the criteria set out in Section III of the tender documents.
