Title: Invitation to Bid for the Supply of Pupil's Books and Teacher's Guides to the Partnership for Learning for All in Nigeria (PLANE) Programme


PLANE is a seven-year, GBP 95m programme funded by the UK Government's Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO) and implemented by DAI Global UK.

PLANE represents one window of intervention in a broader package of investment intended to enable a more inclusive and effective basic education system in Nigeria.

PLANE will work in Kano, Kaduna, Jigawa States, the South West (subject to FCDO confirmation), South East (subject to FCDO confirmation), and the federal capital territory. PLANE is targeting 3,500 schools in the specified regions in Nigeria.

Crown Agents acting as agents for and on behalf of their Principal, DAI Global UK/DAI, invite suitably qualified licensed printers/registered legal entities to print and pack 805,126 pupils' books, 16,000 teacher guides and 4,200 poster sets.
