Panama: Heavy Equipment Tender Questioned

After contracts were awarded to five companies to supply heavy equipment for $23 million, for the second time an appeal for the process to be canceled has been presented.

Monday, October 26, 2015

The adjudication process, carried out for the second time at the request of some of the bidders who objected to the decision of the evaluation committee on the first occasion, has once again been called into question by one of the participating companies.

This time the company Coamco has filed an action after the Ministry of Public Works decided to award "... 12 lines for a total of $23.5 million to the companies IIASA Panamá, Airco, Cardoze & Lindo, Comercial de Motores and Automotora Autostar. However, it has not yet been accepted by the Directorate General of Public Procurement (DGCP), according to information on PanamaCompra. "

"... The Ministry of Public Works plans to buy 185 machines, including bulldozers, dump trucks, bulldozers and other equipment. In addition to the purchases the contracts also include maintenance of equipment and training for operators. "
