Gov’t seeking bidders for port expansion project in Marinduque

THE PHILIPPINE Ports Authority (PPA) said it has started seeking bidders for a port expansion project in Marinduque.

In an invitation to bid, the PPA said it intends to “apply the sum of P294,441,838.26 being the approved budget for… the contract for the Balanacan Port Expansion Project, Port of Balanacan, Mogpog, Marinduque.”

The agency requires completion of the works in 540 calendar days from the receipt by the successful bidder of the notice to proceed.

The agency also said bidders should have “completed a contract similar to the project.”

It said the bidding will be conducted through “open competitive” procedures using a non-discretionary “pass/fail” criterion.

The bids and awards committee (BAC) of the agency will hold a pre-bid conference on Aug. 11.

“Bids must be duly received by the BAC secretariat through manual submission… on or before 24 August 2021 at 1:00 p.m.,” the PPA said.

The opening of bids will also take place on the same day at 2 p.m.

Last week, transport officials inaugurated the expanded Cantilan Port in Surigao del Sur.

The department said the government completed 451 seaport projects from July 2016 to June 2021. — Arjay L. Balinbin
