Mr. Nguyen Van Rin (in Ho Chi Minh City) who is an engineer specialized in bidding consultancy for district project management units he would like to request competent authorities to guide the situation as follows:

A bidding package for construction and installation applies a form of open bidding for one stage – 2 envelope bidding.

The Contractor X has a partnership agreement between Company A and Company B (according to the partnership ratio as follows: Company A undertakes 30% of the work of the bidding package, the Company B undertakes 70% of the work of the bidding package.). Based on the technical evaluation results, the contractor X meets the technical requirements, is approved by the investor with the list of contractors meeting the technical requirements and inviting financial opening.

After opening finance, the bidding consultant unit carries out an evaluation and corrects the bid adjustment of the contractor X. The result has an arithmetic error and deviation adjustment that changes the joint-venture ratio between the company A and the company B (rate of partnership after correcting errors and deviation adjustment are company A 50% and company B 50%).

If considering according to the rate of Joint Venture Company A 50%, the company A does not meet the requirements of competency and experience, leading to contractor X does not meet the technical requirements.
