The Balearic Islands Port Authority (APB) has new vehicle scales in the port of Palma.
The Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB) has successfully completed the first electronic agreement through its procurement board. The port authority has put into operation the New Portal for Electronic Tender of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands. It will use this portal to process all its contractual proceedings, in accordance with the Law 9/2017, of 8 November, on Public Sector Contracts.
As of now, all the APB's contractual proceedings will be processed electronically from start to finish. For this, a tender module has been implemented which allows interaction with companies during the bidding process and has a contractual proceedings agent who internally looks after the entire cycle of these proceedings from start to finish. This cycle begins with the request for tender to the return of the guarantees, as well as any developments which arise in between.
This new platform systematically integrates with all the services offered by the PLACSP (Platform for Public Sector Contracts). It also integrates with the rest of the applications used by the APB (Economic-Financial System, Content Manager, Electronic Signature Components, Signatures Folder, Electronic Communication and Notifications, Entry/Exit Records, Electronic Archives, etc.).
The first electronic agreement of the procurement board was to hire ‘Technical assistance for works management, quality control, and environmental surveillance in varied and minor works of the APB’, with a tender budget of € 297,000.
The following people participated in this opening: the head of the Management Area, Fernando Berenguer; the head of Procurement and Management Control, Carlos Sánchez; the head of Contractual Proceedings, Olga Peñalver; the head of the Financial Department, Gabriel Cruelles; and the State Lawyer, Ana Marín.
