For the fourth time the Comptroller has returned without having approved the contract for the construction of the new convention center, which in May was awarded to the construction company Edica for $32 million.
This time the Office of the Comptroller General of Colombia requested the Costa Rican Tourism Institute give a better justification for why they will use nearly $8 million from the $15 tax charged to tourists entering the country.
The first contract for $15 million was signed for the construction of the Customs Office in Peñas Blancas to be inaugurated in late 2009.
The $15 million are part of the trust for $115 million from the Ministry of the Treasury and the National Bank of Costa Rica. The Trust also includes the construction of a Customs Office in Paso Canoas, and Ciudad Hacendaria (Treasury City), an office complex of four hectares that will be located in Calle Blancos."
The Comptroller General of Costa Rica, considering appeals filed by several companies, ordered changes.
Claims submitted by companies Cable & Wireless Costa Rica, ClaroCosta Rica and Centennial Towers indicated the absence of key information, such as related to price caps (to end users), the cost of interconnection to ICE and fees to be paid to Sutel.
The governing body of congress has approved the design and a $97 million trust for the construction of new legislative offices, whose works will start in mid-2016.
After the Comptroller General of the Republic objected to part of the project design and construction of the new building for the legislature, the board has now approved the design and the method of financing the project, in line with the recommendations of the Comptroller.
Funds have been approved the to build a new sewer system in the province of Cartago.
The project is the responsibility of the construction company Meco, who will start work before July this year. The 5.3 billion colones ($9.8 million) required for the work, will be financed by the Institute of Municipal Promotion and Advice (IFAM), after the General Comptroller approved the loan.
The feasibility study for the project was undertaken by a subsidiary of the Chinese company which is a partner in the project, a situation that is prohibited under the contract with the Costa Rican state refiner.
The Comptroller General of the Republic of Costa Rica also found "weaknesses in the feasibility study," and ordered the Board of the Costa Rican Oil Refinery Company (Recope) to refrain from using the feasibility study conducted by the Chinese company HQCEC "and any others that rely on this", which in practice means stopping the project of building a refinery at a cost of about $1.5 billion.
