Verifying Commission recommends declaring the tender for the Fiscal Dock of Puerto Armuelles void

The verification commission of the act of public bidding for the “Study, Design, Development and Approval of Plans and Construction of the new Fiscal Wharf of Puerto Armuelles, district of Barú, province of Chiriquí ”, valued at $ 20.2 million recommended that it be declared deserted.

The commission presented a report detailing the reasons; noting, firstly, that it reviewed the lowest offer, but concluded that the company did not fully comply with the requirements of the statement of objections; then it evaluated the second proposal with the lowest price, but it lacked the same demands.

It should be noted that apart from design and construction, the tender also sought the hiring of a company that at the same time was capable of providing the furniture, tools, equipment and materials necessary for the operation of the offices and the area of springs.

The report was notified to the Administrator of the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP), Noriel Araúz, on October 5, 2021; The date of the second bidding act will be announced shortly.
