Mormugao Port Authority, Goa, has invited bids to provide project management consultancy services for the purchase of 1.4 MW of solar power through open access.

The last date to submit the bids online is June 13, 2022. Bids will be opened the following day.

Bidders will have to submit ₹38,940 (~$501.94) as an earnest money deposit (EMD). Micro and small enterprises (MSEs) have been exempted from paying the EMD amount.

The successful bidder will have to furnish 3% of the contract price as a performance bank guarantee within 21 days of the letter of acceptance.


The consultant will have to furnish clarifications as required to purchase solar power through open access, relevant regulation and documentation.

The bidder should have completed three similar works, each costing not less than ₹880,000 (~$11,343) or two similar works, each costing not less than ₹1.1 million (~$14,179), or one similar work costing not less than ₹1.76 million (~$22,686).

The bidder should have an average annual turnover of ₹660,000 (~$8,507) during the last three financial years. In the case of MSEs, the average annual financial turnover should be  ₹330,000 (~$4,253).

The bidder should submit only one bid for the tender.

To promote the government’s ‘Make in India’ initiative, Class-I local suppliers will get purchase preference over ‘Class-II local suppliers’ and ‘Non-local suppliers.’

The local content requirement to categorize a bidder as a ‘Class-I local supplier’ is a minimum of 50%. The minimum local content requirement for a ‘Class II local supplier’ is 20%. A ‘Non-local supplier’ means a supplier whose goods, services or works offered for procurement has local content less than or equal to 20%.

If the contractor delays the work, liquidated damages of 0.5% per week or part thereof of the total contract price, subject to a maximum of 5% of the total contract price, will have to be paid.

Earlier this year, the Goa Energy Development Agency issued a tender for designing, supplying, installing, testing, and commissioning of grid-connected rooftop solar projects of 1.65 MW cumulative capacity atop government buildings in Panaji.
