200px-Ph_DOTC_SealMANILA (Mabuhay) – The Department of Transportation and Communications prequalified four groups bid for the central transport terminal project under the public private partnership (PPP) program.

In separate letters for prequalification, DOTC said the following groups can bid for the P4-billion Integrated Transport System (ITS) project-South Terminal:

Datem Inc., as prospective bidder, with LKY Development Corp. as operations and maintenance (O&M) contractor

Filinvest Land Inc., as prospective bidder, with DDT Konstract Inc. as construction contractor and Festival Supermall Inc. and Pro-Excel Property Managers Inc. as O&M contractors

MWM Terminals, Megawide Construction Corp. as lead member, WM Property Management Inc. as consortium member

Ayala Land Inc. as prospective bidder, Makati Development Corp. as construction contractor and Ayala Property Management Corp. as O&M contractor

However, these companies failed to meet the initial hurdle:

EEI Corp. – proposed to meet development expertise for Filinvest Land Inc. – was not qualified by the Prequalification, Bids and Awards Committee (PBAC) of the agency due to incomplete general information sheet.

Maju TMAS Sdn. Bhd. – proposed to meet the O&M expertise for Ayala Land Inc. – was not qualified by PBAC due to incomplete requirements.

The deparment is targeting April next year for the submission of bids, DOTC spokesman Michael Arthur Sagcal told GMA News Online.

The ITS South Terminal project seeks to connect passengers from Laguna and Batangas to other urban transport systems such as the Philippine National Railways and public utility vehicles in inner Metro Manila.

The project involves a passenger terminal building, arrival and departure bays, public information systems, ticketing and baggage holding facilities and park-ride facilities.

The terminal will be constructed on a 4.7-hectare portion of the FTI property in Bicutan Sagcal said. (MNS)
