Complaint Received for Pamana Metro Tender

The Panama Metro Management (GMP) consortium has presented a complaint to the country's public acquisitions directorate.

The consortium took part in the invitation to tender for the management of Panama's metro project together with four other companies but was disqualified.

"In its complaint, GMP claims that the evaluation report is based on subjective considerations and analysis that fall at the margin of criteria stipulated in public acquisitions law and in the bid documents," reports La Prensa.

Panama's public acquisitions directorate agreed to review the complaint and asked the Metro Secreteriat for the files. Once analyzed it will issue its decision.
