THE construction of a P336-million port project in San Fernando, Cebu has yet to start as the Cebu Port Authority (CPA) failed to award the contract during the previous three biddings.
Leonilo Miole, CPA general manager, said the project is still for rebidding after a third failure of bidding where all bids failed to comply with all requirements pursuant to Section 35 of the 2016 revised implementing rules and regulations of Republic Act 9184, or the Government Procurement Reform Act.
The third bidding was conducted on May 3, 2021 with four bidders: F. Gurrea Construction Inc., Hi-tone Construction and Development Corp., Premium Megastructures Inc. and a joint venture between RCDG Construction Corp., BSP & Company Inc. and Great Swiss Metal Builders Corp.
The CPA has yet to schedule the next bidding.
The Department of Transportation (DOTr) allocated P336,114,557.47 for the project.
