    7. Contract description:

    The Dominica Bureau of Standards (DBOS) Fresh Produce Export Quality Control Act was enacted in 2009 which promotes the certification of farms, packing houses and activities throughout the value chain. Currently, banana is the only crop produced through fully developed certification schemes, namely GlobalGAP (good agricultural practices) and Fairtrade. There is need to develop similar certification schemes (Dominica GlobalGAP) for other major crops; some of which are identified in Dominica's national export strategy. The development of certification schemes for these major crops is being pursued by the DBOS. To support the DBOS thrust in certification activities, the banana accompanying measures (BAM) will provide assistance to purchase chemistry equipment for the National Centre for Testing Excellence (NCTE) in support of the DBOS certification activities. The equipment will enhance the NCTE's ability to conduct various tests and analysis which is required for the development and implementation of the Dominica GlobalGAP certification scheme. Furthermore modern agricultural interventions are based on diagnosis, research which informs operators as to the most cost-effective and efficient method of conducting farm operations and treatments given the high cost of agricultural input.

    Indicative equipment might include: HP liquid chromatography system, LC/MS system (QQQ LC/MS system), pH/specific ion meter, conductivity meter, digital refractometer, protein/nitrogen analyser, UV/visible spectrophotometer, infrared spectrophotometer, etc.
