The Cámara Costarricense de la Construcción has applauded the decision by the Contraloría General de la República to reject a contract for a new, $12 million government building.
The building was to be for the Ministerio de Obras Públicas y Transportes in Plaza Víquez in San José.
The Contraloría, the budget and contract watchdog, said that the management of the bid process damaged the good faith of the other bidders. The contract had gone to EUROBAU S.A.
The ministry set a five-day period for submitting bids, and the construction chamber protested at the time.
