HCMC – The Ministry of Planning and Investment has requested the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) to look into a complaint lodged by the Hoa Lu consortium about the VND35-trillion bidding package for the Long Thanh International Airport passenger terminal.

The Hoa Lu consortium submitted two documents to the Department of Public Procurement under the Ministry of Planning and Investment, expressing dissatisfaction with the technical round of the bidding package 5.10 for the construction of the passenger terminal.

As a result, the ministry has requested ACV to address the complaint in accordance with the law, aiming to prevent any negative impacts on the schedule of the package and the overall project.

According to the Bidding Law, a contractor can file a complaint with the investor before the selection of the winning bidder is announced. If the contractor is not satisfied with the investor’s response, they can raise their complaint to the Ministry of Transport.

Even after the announcement of the bidding winner, if the bidding participants remain dissatisfied with the outcome, they can still have the right to file a complaint to both the investor and the competent authority.

If the bidding participants disagree with the resolution by the investor, they can choose to take legal action to safeguard their legitimate interests in accordance with the law.

In response to the ministry’s request, ACV stated that the corporation has responded to the Hoa Lu consortium regarding the bidding package 5.10.

On August 1, ACV announced that the Vietur consortium, led by Turkish company IC ISTAS, meets the technical requirements for the bidding package 5.10 and has advanced to the next round of the bidding process. This decision resulted in the elimination of two other competing consortiums from the race.

Following Vietur’s selection for the next round, the Hoa Lu consortium, consisting of Hoa Binh, Central An Phong, Delta, Unicons, Thanh An, and Thailand’s Powerline Engineering Public Company Limited, called for a thorough review of the appraisal and selection process for this significant bidding package.
