Costa Rica: Major Work Without Tender

June 2015

The Ministry of Public Works is aiming for the state run power company and not a construction company to be the entity that builds a 5 kilometer road tunnel arguing that the advantage is that "we would not have to tender it".

In order to expedite the long timeframes for navigating the tortuous paths to government procurements by tender, the Solis administration intends to proceed under the 'exceptional' criteria set out in the Government Procurement Act, and take advantage of the "tunnellers" at the Instituto Costarricense Electricity (ICE), which will be left idle once construction of the Reventazon hydroelectric dam is completed. The government is considering contracting the state company directly, without declaring a tender in which private construction companies could also put forward offers and be considered for the work. According to the chief of the department, the work consists of building a tunnel connecting Hacienda Vieja de Curridabat with the roundabout of social guarantees in Las Garantías Sociales Zapote (5 kilometers).
