ROOTS FRONT RUNNER IN E10M CITY COUNCIL TENDER

MBABANE – Who can deny the fact that Roots Civils had a competitive edge over its competitors who were vying for the Municipal Council of Manzini tender for the upgrading of streets at Zakhele Township?
This is illustrated by that the council intends awarding the construction company a tender worth over E10 million. If it is finally awarded, Roots will upgrade Musi Nkambule and Goal Streets at Zakhele Township. Its proposed contact price is E10 229 324.39. The companies which were outbidded by Roots Civils are AG Thomas, Inyatsi Construction and Heptagon Civils.
This is according to the notice to award, the council posted on the Swaziland Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (SPPRA) as per Section 45 of the SPPRA Act No. 7 of 2011.
Speculatively, one of the reasons that put Roots at an advantage was that it had the least proposed bid price. Heptagon Civils had the highest bid price of  E11 668 389.63, followed by Inyatsi Construction E11 189 887.60 and AG Thomas E10 808 887.60.
On another note, the Municipal Council of Mbabane intends awarding ED Simelane and Associates a tender worth over E900 000. This tender is for design review, construction supervision and rehabilitation of Mantsholo Road. This is according to a notice of intention to award posted in the Swaziland Public Procurement Regulatory Authority (SPPRA) website.
ED Simelane outwitted Bicon Consulting Engineers, Swazi Consulting Engineers, ZMCK Consulting Engineers and Regional Consulting Engineers respectively. It had the best evaluated score of 88 per cent.
Some public companies have awarded tenders worth over E368 million in seven months (from January to July 2016).
