Suspension Lifted on Metro Tender

After having stopped the process because of an action proposed by one of the participating consortiums, the authorities decided to lift the suspension of the tender for the design and construction of the branch that will connect the future ITSE with the international airport of Tocumen.

Monday, November 26, 2018

The tender was suspended at the beginning of November because of an action presented to the General Directorate of Public Contracting (Dgcp) by Consorcio Línea Aeropuerto, in which it requested the designation of a new commission to evaluate technical proposals, the partial annulment of the report of the evaluating commission and a new analysis of its technical proposal.

In the Commission's evaluation, Consorcio Línea 2 Ramal (Ode/FCC) was the highest rated tender, with a score of 908, followed by Consorcio Línea Aeropuerto (OHL/Mota-Engil), with 887 points, and Acciona Construcción, with 709.

After evaluating the claim presented by Consorcio Línea Aeropuerto, Dgcp decided to "lift the suspension of the Public Act", through a document published in the portal PanamaCompra last November 23rd.
