KUWAIT CITY, Sept 13: According to informed sources at the Ministry of Public Works, the neutral technical committee responsible for studying the offers of international companies for road repair tenders held its meeting yesterday to negotiate and receive final price offers from companies competing to win ten tenders for road maintenance. These tenders include maintenance work in all six governorates, with a tender for each governorate, three contracts for the northern, southern, and central regions with a contract for each region, and one contract for the Jaber Bridge. The sources explained that the committee has finished evaluating the companies’ price offers with varying percentages of price increases compared to the estimate for street repair, which the ministry is fully committed to. The evaluation process was carried out through a careful study, which the committee has undertaken since its formation, of the offers submitted by seven international companies that were qualified by the Ministry of Public Works to carry out various road maintenance, works in the country.

The committee will submit its final report in preparation for awarding the best financial and technical offers in accordance with the conditions set by the ministry for road repair soon. The ministry is scheduled to complete the rest of the awarding procedures and sign contracts with the winning companies within the framework of the budget allocated by the Ministry of Finance, which was later agreed upon to implement the tenders once the committee’s work is completed. The ministry had discussed with the State Audit Bureau the plan to contract with international companies and the reasons that prompted it to offer limited tenders in accordance with Article 18 of the Public Tenders Law, which gives the ministry the right to offer limited practices to international companies without the local agent, which were earlier nominated by the embassies of their ministries.
