El Salvador: Changes to "Housing for All" Tender

Changes to the tender process of program “Housing for All” ("Casas para Todos") eased up on requirements for construction companies.

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

Current legislation requires the contractor to have developed at least three similar projects to the one which is being applied for. With the new changes construction companies can apply without having been specifically devoted to urban development projects.

Elmundo.com.sv published statements by the president of the Housing Social Fund (FONAVIPO), Marco Fortin, "... in the new tender regulations, the requirement of having the expertise in development lies with the resident of the project, not the construction company."
