Tenders in for supervision of controversial East Coast road project
Tenders for supervisory consultancy services for the US$57.6M, East Coast of Demerara Four Lane Extension Project from Better Hope to Belfield Village were yesterday opened.
The bids were opened at the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) located in the Ministry of Finance compound at Urquhart Street, Georgetown.
The road project itself has attracted public criticism over the way that the contractor was chosen after Cabinet rejected a recommendation made by the NPTAB’s evaluation committee. The committee later changed its decision and Cabinet has welcomed its choice. Critics say that in cases such as these the NPTAB will not be able to oppose Cabinet’s choice.
Yesterday, three companies submitted bids to supervise the works and their names and amounts given are shown below.
