“On the seventh of November 2019 after review and consideration by the Caribbean Development Bank, the Ministry of Works did not receive any objections from the Caribbean Bank agreeing with the consultant’s bid evaluation report and approval of rewards of contracts of the lowest evaluated bidder for both lot one and two that is Construciones de Calleteras S.A. D.C. and joint venture with Imer Hernandez Development Company. Madam Speaker it is important to highlight that through the procurement process approval and no objections had to be seek for the Caribbean Development for every step of the process. The prequalification evaluation report and the bid evaluation report was also conducted by a foreign firm approved by the Caribbean Development Bank. Finally Madam Speaker I want to make it absolutely clear that it was the engineering consultancy firm Politecnica, an Italian firm that conducted the evaluation and made recommendation to the Caribbean Development Bank as to which companies qualified to be award these contracts. The Ministry of works signed the contracts only after receiving instructions from the Caribbean Development Bank to do so.”
