CLARK FREEPORT – The tender process for the selection of joint venture partners to design, build, finance, operate and maintain power and water distribution in New Clark City which is envisioned to be Asia’s premier economic hub has started.

This was the statement released by the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) on Wednesday.

The statement also said invitations to bid were published in major broadsheets on the same day (May 16) for the selection of a joint venture partner to develop the electric power distribution system and another one for the water and wastewater infrastructure in the said new metropolis.

The BCDA said interested proponents may purchase the eligibility documents and the information memorandum on the two projects at its corporate office for a non-refundable fee of P500,000 each.

A Pre-Eligibility Conference for both utilities will be held on May 29 at the BCDA office in Bonifacio Global City.

The pre-eligibility conference for electric power distribution is scheduled at 10 am, while the pre-eligibility conference for water and wastewater infrastructure will be held at 2 pm. BCDA targets to award the contracts for both projects by September 2018.

The 9,450-hectare New Clark City is envisioned to be the country’s first smart, disaster- resilient and sustainable city.

The first phase of the development covering 60 hectares will feature the National Government Administrative Center (NGAC) that will house back-up offices of various government agencies and a world-class sports complex being constructed in time for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games.
