Through subsequent engagements with interested parties, the SC understands that there are some parties wishing to seek suitable partners with respect to this proposal. Based on several requests made and given that some of the RFP recipients are foreign participants who have had to make the necessary travel arrangements to collect the RFP and secure a meeting with the SC, we have decided to extend the closing date for RFP submission from 15 July 2013 to 5 August 2013.
