Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) has issued a notification about cancellation of a package titled “Construction and Equipment Installation for the Passenger Terminal Building”, which was the largest bidding package for Long Thanh International Airport.
According to the ACV, the entire bidding files do not align with Article 17 of the Law on Bidding.
The contract package involved the design, construction, and equipment installation in the passenger terminal, which belongs to the component venture covering essential airport facilities under the first phase of the Long Thanh International Airport construction.
This was classed as the biggest contract package for the first phase of the airport project. The construction was planned to be implemented within 1,000 days as prescribed in Vietnamese laws from the effective date of the contract.
The timeline for submitting the bidding dossiers was between September 24 and November 8. In October 2022, ACV held a pre-bidding conference with around 10 contractors from Germany, Japan, South Korea, China, and Vietnam taking part.
However, when the bidding was closed on November 8, it was found that related documentation files were not qualified under Article 17 of the Law on Bidding. Thus, the ACV extended the deadline for submitting the files to November 23 and then November 30.
