The Solomon Islands 2023 Pacific Games Organising Committee has put out a request for interested parties to help supply and deliver sporting equipment for the event.

A bidding process is set to take place to decide the supply and delivery rights for 28 lots before it closes on January 27 next year.

Equipment is needed for table tennis, basketball, boxing, tennis, volleyball, netball, sailing, va'a and kayaking, swimming, triathlon, archery, hockey, rugby, football, athletics, golf, judo, taekwondo, bodybuilding, weightlifting, karate, and powerlifting, as well as some "non-specific sport equipment."

"The Games Organising Committee invites interested eligible tenderers to submit tenders for the supply and delivery of sport equipment," read a Solomon Islands 2023 statement.

"Bidding will be conducted through the competitive tendering procedure specified in the SIG Financial Instructions 2010 and the Procurement and Contract Administration Manual 2013 and is open to all eligible tenderers.

"Bidders are required to submit bids for either one, two or three or all of the lots stated."

A "pre-tender" meeting has been scheduled to take place on January 19 at the Organising Committee's office in Honiara.

Honiara is due to stage the Pacific Games between November 19 and December 2 in 2023, following a four-month delay blamed on COVID-19.

Solomon Islands has experienced difficulty in funding the Games but has received financial support from Australia, China, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Japan, and South Korea.
