CTC Distributes Manual, Awards Three Contracts
Published 25th March 2009, 12:15pm
In accordance with the Public Management and Finance Law (PMFL) (2005 Revision), the Central Tenders Committee (CTC) has produced a manual on the pre-qualification tendering process.
Under the Financial (Amendment) (No 2) Regulations 2006 of the PMFL, pre-qualification can be used as part of the tender process for contracts over CI$250,000. This procedure is only necessary for purchases of “specialist or highly technical goods and services; turnkey, design and build or complex construction contracts; and custom-designed equipment or industrial plant,” according to the manual.
The benefits of pre-qualification, detailed in the manual, includes sifting against an agreed criteria the number of bids that the procuring entity needs to evaluate and compare, as well as benefitting competent suppliers who may be otherwise reluctant to participate in procurement for high value contracts.
The manual also explains pre-qualification preparation, necessary documents, the application process and recommendations and awards. Hard copies can be obtained from the CTC Office, ground floor, Government Administration Building. Copies will also be made available on the CTC website.
The CTC recently awarded three contracts for various government projects – the George Town Landfill Re-organisation project; the rebuilding of homes in Cayman Brac and the Monetary Authority’s Cayman Brac lease renewal.
The first contract, awarded to Civil Works & Services Ltd., was in the sum of CI$212,750 for site preparation works for the landfill. The contract involves supplying, leveling and compacting of imported fill material to cover a 20,000 square foot area of the existing George Town Landfill. Works are expected to be completed by May 2009.
The second contract was awarded to Atlantic Star Ltd. in the sum of CI$336,000 for the re-roofing, partial re-roofing and partial rebuilding of uninsured homes on the Brac, following the devastating effects of Hurricane Paloma. Expected completion is June 2009.
The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority’s (CIMA) lease renewal for their headquarters in Cayman Brac was the final contract awarded. The Brac Infomatics Centre houses CIMA’s back-up systems, and provides services such as data replication, software maintenance, network connectivity and restoration capabilities in the event of disaster or other major service interruption. The contract was for CI$134,149 per annum for a period of five years, totaling CI$670,745.
