Cleaning at Tocumen: New Tender

In order to resolve a tie situation between two of the bidders the administration of Panama City airport has ordered the cancelation of the tender and will be holding another one next month.

Tuesday, April 14, 2015

The consortiums Brillantex and Treoc Tocumen submitted proposals valued at $6.9 million and both met the specifications established in the tender, therefore the evaluation committee had to choose between two options: choose the proponent who is credited as an SME with the Authority of the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (Ampyme) or direct the proponents to submit a second offer. reports that "... Altavista, which integrates the consortium Brillantex is registered with the Ampyme, however, its enrollment occurred on March 20, the same day Tocumen received all the offers. " In light of this situation the Public Procurement Directorate (CMPD) decided "... to cancel the 'abbreviated by price' tender in order to hire the cleaning services for the aiport area and glazed surfaces."

Joseph Fidanque III, manager of Tocumen SA, said "... This month a new call will be made, but indicated that all the steps set out in standard public procurement procuedure were complied with. In order to avoid suspicion the decision taken by the DGCP was the most correct, although in his view there were other tiebreakers could have allowed Tocumen to continue with the act. "
