Post-qualification/disqualification

Post by friend toe on Mon Mar 17, 2014 1:00 pm

Greetings to honored contributors and lecturers on gppb
Sir/madam... we are in a situation wherein a Road project was bid out with 90% Concrete paving and 10% Asphalt overlaying. The lowest bidder happened to have no experience in Asphalt overlay projects. Can we post-disqualify the bidder?
Hoping for your reply on this matter. We really need your opinion. Thank you so much and more power.

General Rule: It cannot be a ground for disqualification if the contractor has a single contract "similar" in nature qualified by its project cost. While we know for a fact that concreting and asphalting methods are very different from each other, they are "similar" in a sense of under horizontal construction. Concreting being substantially the dominant part of the project, it is not necessary to burden yourself on exact experience of that asphalting portion. To me, experience on asphalting is not a material requirement if the contractor can show a valid experience in horizontal concreting (pavement) works.

Exception: If in your bidding documents, you prohibit sub-contracting (not a recommended practice). Absence of in-house capability on asphalting may be a ground for DQ because the presumption is that the contractor cannot deliver that portion.

Exception to the exception: Even if sub-contracting is prohibited, contractors may form joint ventures for that specific undertaking.

good morning. My opinion on the matter sir friend toe and sir engrjhez. The procuring entity should check its bidding documents and determine the technical requirements a prospective bidder should possess. If your bidding document is silent, then sir engrjhez is correct that the 10% asphalt overlaying would be immaterial and the the bidder would qualify if it has a similar contract under bidding. On a prospective note, I suggest that the procuring entity should specifically require in the bidding documents that a bidder to qualify it must have at least similar contract for concreting and asphalting that is at least 50% of the ABC OR at least one contract for concreting and at least one contract for asphalting, each of which should be at least 50% of the cost of ABC.

greetings sir engrjhez and mam regina... thank you so much for the reply. May i follow through... the key personnel doesn't have asphalting experience. The foreman's track record doesn't have experience Highway construction (both Concrete Paving and Asphalting). Can we the foreman's experience in port project suffice? Port doesn't have curves unlike highways which do have a lot of geometric curves and controls... the equipment and experience requirement were done thru a bid bulletin after the pre-bid conference...

May I share our PBAC issue too re: similar projects requirement? during the opening, there was a bidder who happened to be d LCRB to d tune of 1.4M as savings. However, upon postqua, they found out that the past project, which is beyond the 2 yr period specifically required in the ITB and BDS is not similar. On dat basis, is it right to disqualify the LCRB declared?

Are you after the specific performance of a foreman? If not, it is an infra project (not consulting services), it does not affect the requirement of completed contract similar in nature.

If it is procurement of GOODS/SERVICES: YES, there is a valid ground for disqualification.

If it is procurement of INFRASTRUCTURE PROJECTS: NO, the relevant period does not apply.
