Coudray: SIS bid, lowest on market

By SEAN DOUGLAS Wednesday, February 26 2014

MINISTER of Local Government Marlene Coudray said that out of three select-tender bidders, SIS had bid the lowest cost ($41.9 million) to build a new Siparia Market, coming in far below the price initially estimated by State technocrats ($54.4 million).

She spoke in the Senate yesterday in reply to a question to ministers by Opposition Senator Camille Robinson-Regis, which was followed by a series of supplemental questions by Opposition Senator Faris al Rawi.

On February 17, 2011 it was agreed that her Ministry contract the Palo Seco Agricultural Enterprises Limited (PSAEL) to supply project management services inclusive of structural design, detailed costing and contract document for the construction of a market for Siparia Regional Corporation.

Requests for proposals (RFPs) for a “design/build” project were sent to three contractors - TLM Company Limited, Bull Fabricators and Super Industrial Services (SIS) - chosen by the PSAEL Board.

The two-storey market will have an area of 32,000 square feet and house 170 vendor stalls, 10 fish and meat booths, a food court, two administrative offices, toilets, plus 15 parking spaces. She named PSAEL’s evaluation team as the technocrats Diane Arjoon (accountant), Chester Roberts (project management supervisor), Hugh Aberdeen (project engineer) and Petal Maingot (project engineer). In attendance were Nirmala Maharaj (attorney) and Sirswe Jackson (manager of project engineering). The bid evaluation was done by July 27, 2011, with the Ministry told that SIS was the successful bidder.

“PSAEL’s projected budget, submitted to the Ministry of Local Government, was

$54.4 million, exclusive of contingency management fees and VAT,” she said. “The estimate submitted by SIS was $41.9 million, exclusive of contingency management fees and VAT”. Replying to queries from Al-Rawi, she said the three firms invited to bid had been pre-qualified to take part in this special select tender.
