Panama: Cruise Terminal Tender Canceled

The Maritime Authority canceled the tender to operate and maintain the terminal in Isla Perico, arguing that in an "analysis of the current statement of charges, inconsistencies were found for the operation and maintenance of the terminal."

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

In April 2019, the terms of the public tender were published, to award the contract for "Operation and maintenance of the cruise terminal of Panama, in Perico Island", but the authorities decided to cancel the tender.

"... The General Direction of Port and Auxiliary Maritime Industries by Note DGPIMA-1555-2019 of September 17, 2019, requested the approval for the cancellation of the Tender, because in an analysis of the current schedule of charges, inconsistencies were found for the operation and maintenance of a cruise terminal and by the applications submitted by the companies that participated in the act of approval," states the report of the public tender.

The Contractor awarded this Public Act would be in charge of carrying out all the Services that allow to perform efficiently and satisfactorily the Base Port Regime and Transit Regime operations, from the arrival or departure of the ships by sea, to the access or departure of the passengers and their luggage by land.

The reference value of the cancelled tender was $9 million.
