The City of Bacolod through its Bids and Awards Committee will conduct a bidding for the environment/sanitary services (operation and management) of the sanitary landfill in Brgy. Felisa, Bacolod City on March 30.
BAC vice chairman Allyn Luv Dignadice said yesterday that IPM-Construction and Development Corporation was the only prospective bidder present during the pre-bid conference for the environment/sanitary services conducted yesterday.
Dignadice said they have posted in the Philippine Government Electronic Procurement System the invitation for the bidding of the project that will cover April 1 to December 31.
The Approved for Budget for the Contract is P72 million, she said.
Dignadice said other bidders can still get bid documents from the BAC to join the March 20 bidding.
IPM-CDC also won the bidding for the maintenance and operation of the sanitary landfill from June to December last year.
It was again the qualified bidder for the P148.5 million environment and sanitary services contract covering April to December this year.
Asked for his reaction after IPM-CDC won the bidding for the environment and sanitary services, Bacolod Mayor Evelio Leonardia said that in terms of garbage collection, he believes that IPM-CDC has done a good job.
Leonardia said that while at the start there were birth pains and there were complaints because the garbage hauler was not familiar with the territory and the terrain of the garbage situation of Bacolod, it was able to adjust after a month or two.
“Comparatively speaking, I think this company (IPM-CDC) is doing well if not better, than the others in the past. I think one factor is that this is an experienced company, and because it has a track record,” he said, adding that “We can expect that it will continue to do the job.”
In the invitation to bid for environment/sanitary services, BAC chairman Maphilindo Polvora said the bidding will be conducted through open competitive bidding procedure using a non-discretionary “pass/fail” criterion as specified in the Implementing Rules and Regulations of R.A. 9184, or the Government Procurement Reform Act.
Polvora said a complete set of bidding documents may be purchased by interested bidders from February 27 until March 20 upon payment of nonrefundable fee for the bidding documents amounting to P50,000.
This may also be downloaded for free from the PhilGEPS website and from the website of the procuring entity, provided that bidders pay the non-refundable fee for the bidding documents not later than the submission of their bids, he said.
Polvora said bid opening will be March 20 at 8:30 a.m. at the BAC Secretariat at the Bacolod City Government Center.*CGS
