Two groups prequalified to bid for the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Bureau of Corrections' (BuCor) first Regional Prison Facilities project under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) Program.
After evaluation of prequalification documents submitted last June 26 2015, DOJ and BuCor deemed San Miguel Holdings Corp. and Mega Structure Consortium compliant with the requirements to bid for the Php 50.2 billion Regional Prison Facilities through PPP, while DMCI Holdings Inc. did not pass the prequalification stage of the project.
The winning bidder will design, finance, construct, and maintain the modern prison facilities that will be constructed at Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija.
This Regional Prison Facilities PPP project will accommodate 26,880 inmates, including staff housing and administrative buildings, areas for rehabilitation (sports, work and religious activity), and will be installed with high security equipment.
It will address the dire situation faced by existing penal facilities and create more humane prison conditions.
