An invitation was published by the Technical Services Unit (under the Ministry of Finance), in the name of Ministry of Economy and Ministry of Health, for consulting companies to submit bids for replacement of façade joinery on the main building of the Clinical Centre of Montenegro. The country’s government has received a loan in the amount of EUR 5 million from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) in order to finance the continuation of the ‘Energy Efficiency in Montenegro’ project. Its aim is to improve energy efficiency in healthcare facilities and to increase the public awareness related to energy efficiency measures, Directorate for Energy Efficiency said in a press release. Part of the proceeds is intended for the payment of the works from this invitation for bids.
The process will be conducted through the International Competitive Bidding (ICB) procedures specified in the World Bank’s Guidelines: Procurement under IBRD Loans and IDA Credits, the press release said. Bids must be delivered to the address below at or before September 9, 12:00 local time. Electronic bidding shall not be permitted, the invitation said.
Montenegro – Energy Efficiency Project (MEEP), implemented from February 2009 until December 2014, was the first one in the country of its kind and it covered six hospitals, eight schools and a students’ dormitory with a budget of EUR 6.5 million. The results, including energy savings and improvement of conditions for patients and workers, influenced the government to take a new loan of EUR 5 million, so the programme was extended in 2013 as MEEP Additional Financing.
