The National Treasury has invited bids from professional gym trainers to operate its newly launched gym and train employees.
The State-of-the-art gym is located within Bima House, Nairobi, and can accommodate 250-300 users daily at different intervals.
It will also be free of charge for staff at the National Treasury.
“It is a welfare facility and will therefore be free of charge. The Health Club is fully equipped with modern equipment for training and is intended to operate daily between Monday and Friday from 5.00 am to 9.00 pm and from 8.00 am to 3.00 pm over the weekends and public holidays or as will be agreed,” the Treasury said.
The gym is also equipped with a steam bath, spa, and sauna. a boutique spa (a bath containing hot aerated water) and a jacuzzi to help staff relax after work, keep fit and socialise.
The gymnasium will also provide Treasury employees with first-aid awareness lessons, field, and outside training, team building and bonding, and boot camps.
In its invite for applications, the Treasury said the gym operator would be required to offer services such as training on physical fitness, aerobic and anaerobic exercises, self-defense, physiotherapy, massage, and nutritional training.
“To make the health facility operational, the National Treasury is looking for a service provider who will offer professional and expert training in the hitherto stated areas and further maintain the machines and equipment,” Treasury added in a tender notice.
“The proposed service provider will be a competent professional firm club or a consortium of professional experts in physical training, registered locally with the Ministry of Sports and Youth or any other recognised national regional or international sports body, who will provide the aforestated training.”
Interested bidders were advised to obtain further information from the National Treasury offices and inspect the tender documents during office hours from 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
“Tenders will be opened immediately after the deadline date and time specified or any deadline date and time specified later.
“Tenders will be publicly opened in the presence of the Tenderers’ designated representatives who choose to attend at the address below,” added the tender notice.
