DMCI qualifies for prison PPP bidding

Iris Gonzales (The Philippine Star) - August 20, 2015 - 10:00am

MANILA, Philippines - DMCI Holdings Inc. has been qualified to bid for the P50.18-billion Regional Prison Facilities.

The Pre-Qualifications, Bids and Awards Committee of the Department of Justice earlier disqualified DMCI due to documentary deficiencies.

However, the DOJ reconsidered its earlier decision “after a thorough deliberation and re-evaluation of the pre-qualification documents submitted by DMCI Holdings.”

 DMCI said the Regional Prison Facilities is the government’s first of its kind project under the Public Private Partnership program.

 The project includes the construction and maintenance of a modern prison facility in Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija.

Frances Grace Mercado, vice president of DMCI Construction, said the company is waiting for the bidding terms before it finalizes its plan for the project.

 Once completed, the facility can accommodate over 26,000 inmates. It will also include the construction of staff housing, administrative buildings and rehabilitation areas.

Other pre-qualified bidders include the Mega Structure Consortium and San Miguel Holdings Corp.

The submission of bids is scheduled in September 2015.

The winning private company will be responsible for the financing, detailed design and construction, and maintenance of the prison facility.

“A number of supporting accommodation and building-related services may be outsourced as part of the PPP agreement, such as laundry, waste treatment and disposal, sewage water treatment and power generation,” the PPP Center said.
