Another Suspended Tender in Tocumen Expansion

The Public Procurement Directorate ordered the management company of the airport terminal to suspend the tender for the redevelopment of the Immigration and Customs area.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

This is the second time that the bidding is suspended due to complaints filed by the participants.

The claim, admitted by the directorate, was presented by the consortium Azyza-As-Fagar, who is dissatisfied with the score received in the line of previous experience.

The company claims that the Commission made an incorrect analysis of the documentation submitted to participate in the process.

After the first suspension, the Directorate requested Tocumen SA to conduct a second evaluation report. In this, the Commission increased the score to five of the participating companies, including Azyza-As-Fagar, however, the Spanish company is still below the Landscape Vision Corp consortium. This company, in addition to obtaining the best score, also presented the lowest price.
