Children's Hospital: Has the Story Ended?

After the claims were solved, the Panamanian Ministry of Health awarded the contract to build and equip the new Children's Hospital to the consortium Acciona Construccion S.A.

Monday, March 9, 2020

The last claims of this work, which has been trying to be awarded for years, arose after the results of the competition were known, since the report of the Evaluation Commission details that the proposal of Consorcio CAMCE, worth $613 million, obtained a score of 72 and that of Consorcio Acciona Construcción, S.A., valued at $614 million, had a score of 87.92. See details of the evaluations (in Spanish).

As a result of these claims, last year the General Directorate of Public Procurement (DGCP) ordered the suspension of the public event. However, in December 2019, the Ministry of Health requested that the claim filed by the Camce Hospital del Niño consortium be dismissed, arguing that these actions have made the execution of the project difficult.

The history of the tender for the "Construction, equipment and corrective and preventive maintenance of the New Children's Hospital, the Santo Tomas Hospital Maternity Hospital and Related Areas, restoration of the gardens and remodeling", seems to have come to an end, since in the last resolution the Ministry of Health ordered to award the contract to Acciona Construction.

The document dated 9 March 2020 states that "... That the bidders have had the opportunity to file a complaint with the General Directorate of Public Contracting, which was attended to by this administrative body, as published on the PanamaCompra website.

The company Acciona Construcción, S.A., is considered the best value proposal with the highest rating according to the evaluation methodology described in the tender document, and the Entity must proceed to award the public act by means of a reasoned resolution.

Consequently, the Minister of Health, duly empowered to award the contract, in use of her legal and delegated powers.
