MORE than five con­trac­tors joined yes­ter­day’s bid­ding of the de­vel­op­ment of Pro­greso Vil­lage Re­lo­ca­tion Site and con­struc­tion of roads and bridges in var­i­ous ar­eas in Ba­colod City.

Th­ese were part of the city’s four flag­ship projects - the de­vel­op­ment of Pro­greso Vil­lage Re­lo­ca­tion Site worth P350 mil­lion; Ba­colod City Col­lege site de­vel­op­ment and fa­cil­i­ties, P350 mil­lion; and con­struc­tion of roads and bridges, P200 mil­lion; and de­vel­op­ment of Ba­colod Masskara Coli­seum worth P800 mil­lion.

City Asses­sor Maphilindo Polvora, chair­man of the Bids and Awards Com­mit­tee (BAC), said the bid­ding for the Ba­colod City Col­lege site de­vel­op­ment and fa­cil­i­ties is set on March 1.

There’s no sched­ule yet of bid­ding for the de­vel­op­ment of Ba­colod Masskara Coli­seum.

Polvora said they re­ceived more than five bid doc­u­ments for the road and bridge pro­ject at Mag­sun­gay Pe­quin River, which in­cludes drainage, bank pro­tec­tion, and flood con­trol, in Barangay Vista Ale­gre with an Ap­proved Bud­get for the Con­tract (ABC) of P14,999,996.86.

Also the re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of Man­silin­gan-fe­lisa Road with an ABC of P61,999,976.75; re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion/widen­ing of Su­lum Bridge at CL Mon­telibano Drive, Barangay Vil­la­m­onte, P7,056,168.65; widen­ing/re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of Lacson Street, which in­cludes bridge re­place­ment, drainage, and flood con­trol mit­i­ga­tion, P7 mil­lion.

After the eval­u­a­tion of the bid doc­u­ments, Polvora said they will make an of­fi­cial state­ment with Mayor Eve­lio Leonar­dia to an­nounce the qual­i­fied bid­ders in said projects.

After the bid­ding, the BAC will pro­ceed with the post-qual­i­fi­ca­tion. They will choose the low­est, cal­cu­lated, and re­spon­sive bid­der.

Polvora said there were some con­trac­tors who with­drew from the bid­ding, but he can­not di­vulge fur­ther de­tails since the open­ing of the bid is still on­go­ing.

“After the bid­ding, we will an­nounce the qual­i­fied bid­ders, we will make our of­fi­cial re­port,” he added./ MAP
