El Salvador to Bid Works at Embassies

The bid is to perform maintenance and restoration works on three properties in the United States.

Thursday, January 6, 2011

These properties are the premises of the Embassy of El Salvador and the Ambassador's residence; both in Washington, DC, as well as the permanent headquarter building of El Salvador at the United Nations in New York.

The Chancellor reported that the bidding process had started and they expect to have among the bidders companies from Salvadorans living in the United States.

The costs of the pilot project will be covered by savings generated from the austerity policy followed by the institution.

This maintenance program will continue in 2011 in properties owned by the Salvadoran state in various countries including France, Chile and Nicaragua. Also, properties owned in Belize, Mexico and Brazil will be assessed, where there are plans to host Salvadoran diplomatic missions in those countries.
