  4. Bangalore Metro has rejected one of our tenders because the bid bond validity was 180 days in place of the specified 240 days. The validity of the bid itself is specified as 180 days only, however the bond was for an additional 2 months.

    This was an oversight and a 60 day extension to the validity was faxed to them on the same evening.

    Is Bangalore Metro's action within CVC guidelines?

  7. We have a network service provider whose services we are taking for the last 2 years after going through a tender process. Can we not sign a fresh agreement with the service provider for a period of 2 years without going in for a fresh tender process? Does the CVC allow that? The current service provider has a rate contract with us and for which it was selected through a tender process.

  22. There is urgency for appointing service provider for financial inclusion plan. In response to tender only one bid received in spite of two extensions and moderation of eligibility criteria allowed on the basis of queries. Whether decision can be taken on single bid basis as there is no item for re-tendering.

    ReplyDelete
  23. My question is whether a service provider is allowed to provide machinery or other materials on rental that he or his company doesn't own? For instance, if I am in the furniture rental business and start to provide generators on rent that I do not own. Will that be legally allowed? I have observed many people that have been practicing in such a way.
    And if such a guideline exists, what are the penalties associated with it? .

  50. all guidelines are there still it is fact corruption is increasing day by day in Tendering Process. there are many steps needs to be taken to stop corruption from tendering Process. First we should increase competition in Tender invitation. when more and more bidder participating in Tenders new Player come, resulted in good price. to increase competition, there should be a site like www.tenderdetail.com where information are free for bidders.

  53. Dear Sir

    1. The following is the case in the Govt tender

    (a) Pubic Tender Notice Issued in TWO bid system

    (b) Parties are submitted the tenders and L1 identified.

    (c) PNC conducted

    (d) Work order Placed on the L1 party for the Negotiated price.

    (e) Before commencement of the work by L1 party, the L1 party identified the ground position of the

    equipment and the tendered scope of work having a lot of variation.

    (f) Intimated the same to the Customer reg the scope variation.

    (g) The complete argument has started for this stage. They were stated that the GA drawing mentioned in

    the tender will cover the additional scope of work.

    (h) As they were argued the same has not been covered in the drawing and further the connected

    drawing No are also not mentioned in the tender as well as in the Work Order.

    (i) How the additional drawings are the part of the tender or in the part of Work Order --- Pl Clarify the

    same is as per the CVC guidelines.

    (j) Since we are opposing the same, they were issued a notice to us and going for Limited tender.

    (k) Since the tender value is more than 25 lakhs -- the limited tender is a correct procedure as per the

    guidelines of CVC.

    2. Kindly guide us for the above case.

    If any further clarification pl feel free to contact us.

    As there was more than 50% difference with the prices with there estimated prices(which they arrived themselves, without getting any quotations from the market)they have cancelled the tenders.
    Inspite of participating in the most transparent platform of tender calling and paying the processing and also the eprocurement fee both the times,i lost the tender.
    Is there any possiblity to challenge the cancellation of the e-tenders and get the order.

    Please advice asap.
