Government is finally opening the tendering process for repair works to the Central Administration Complex in Road Town.
“Works will include the final cleaning and clearing of old mechanical, electrical and plumbing components, the design and refitting of office spaces, the design of new mechanical, electrical and plumbing, contract administration and construction supervision,” government has said.
Tenders must be deposited in the ‘Tender Box’ placed at the Ministry of Finance on Central Administrative Complex by 10am on September 4.
Tenders will be publicly opened at noon that same day.
Government has scheduled a pre-tender meeting at the complex on August 24 at 10am . The meeting will be held on the second floor of the east atrium in conference room number-two. All tenderers are invited to attend.
The complex had sustained considerable damage during the September 2017 hurricanes. This forced a number of departments to relocate and continue their operations from other buildings.
The government announced back in April that it received an $11.4 million payout from NAGICO Insurance.
A non-refundable fee of $250 is required to bid.
Tenderers are required to provide original certificates of good standing from the Director of the Social Security Board, the Commissioner of Inland Revenue, and the National Health Insurance.
Tenderers must also provide a valid trade licence and certificates of good standing from the Commercial Registry (if the company is a registered agent). Certificates should be dated no earlier than one month prior to the date of submission.
Tenderers should submit one original and the three copies of the tender. The original should be placed in a sealed envelope and marked ‘Original’ and the additional copies placed in another sealed envelope and marked ‘Copies’.
Both envelopes should then be placed in an outer envelope and marked ‘Consultancy Services for Engineering and Architectural Design, Construction Supervision and Contract Management for the Rehabilitation of the Central Administration Complex’.
Tender Documents are available upon request from the Chairman, Central Tenders Board, Ministry of Finance, Procurement Unit, Central Administrative Complex, Third Floor, East Atrium, Waterfront Drive, Tortola, British Virgin Islands.
