MANILA, Philippines - The Department of Transportation and Communications has rescheduled the pre-bid conference for the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board’s (LTFRB) P298-million information technology public-private partnership project to allow the qualified bidder more time to study the deal.

Winston Ginez, vice chairman of the Pre-qualification, Bids and Awards committee and chairman of the LTFRB, said documents for the project such as the instructions to bidders, functional requirements and specifications, as well as the draft concession agreement and its annexes have been released.

To give the qualified bidder more time to review and assess the documents, the LTFRB has moved the pre-bid conference and the one-on-one meeting  to Jan 29 instead of Jan. 22.

The pre-bid conference will be held at the 15th floor conference room of The Columbia Tower in Mandaluyong City.

The PPP deal is intended to upgrade the existing IT system of the LTFRB.

The upgrade will involve moving to computerized from manual processes, as well as development, supply, and operationalization of the network infrastructure (hardware), database, and applications (software).

The project is not just expected to clean up existing data but enhance the agency’s data collection and processing as well.

The deal is also seen to reduce the processing time to complete transactions with the agency, as well as improve access to information and provide a feedback mechanism.

The private partner and the government will have a cooperation period of 11.5 years for the project, including 1.5 years for the installation, application development and set-up of the IT system.

The consortium of IL&FS Technologies Ltd. (ITL) of India and SAHI Technologies Unlimited is the only party qualified to bid for the project.
