Journalist Rosa María Bolaños wrote in Prensalibre.com: "Carlos Colom, president of the CNEE, opened the bidding process which established a September 29 deadline for submitting and receiving both economic and technical bids. The Tender Board will examine if the technical proposals are admissible, and the financial offers will be opened on October 13, according to the work schedule. That same day, there will be a fee (cost for network use) auction, a new method chosen by the authorities to determine the winner by taking into account the lowest price being offered, said Colom.”
Nine businesses have expressed their interest in bidding for the projects regarding the building of electric transmission infrastructure in Guatemala with estimated costs of $504 million.
