    Capability to win in international biddings is increased for Georgian Companies


    Roads Department of Georgia is conducting negotiations with donor organizations on liberalization of qualification criteria for international biddings. In particular, till now bidders for participating in biddings were requested to provide such a large volume of performed works and a big amount of consumed funds that none of Georgian companies were able to meet. Pursuant to new initiative, requirement criteria will be below existing threshold. Accordingly, more Georgian companies will be given opportunity to participate in international biddings.

    Roads Department of Georgia and European Investment Bank reached an agreement on reducing bidding requirements within the scope of Samtredia-Grigoleti Road (4 lane road)  Construction Project. Based on the agreement, requirement for annual construction turnover was reduced from 90 mln Euros up to 40 mln Euros.
