A Tender Trap

Minister of State-Owned Enterprises Pledges He Wonít Interfere in Commercial Space Tenders at Baliís Airport

(2/3/2013) The Minister for State-owned Enterprises (BUMN), Dahlan Iskan, has declared he as no desire to interfere in the tendering process for commercial space at Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport.

Dahlan told Bisnis Bali that the tender is a business issue for Angkasa Pura I (AP I). During a visit to inspect the airport project while underling that the airport project was expensive to complete, he said that how commercial space was let and at what price is solely a management issue for PT Angkasa Pura.

“BUMN will not interfere. BUMB will not get involved,” said Dahlan. He also disagreed with those who say the registration fee for tendering to obtain commercial space was expensive. “Just compare (the price) with airport outside Bali,” said Dahlan.

The Federation of Airport Traders (P2B) comprised of existing shop holders at the Bali Airport are seeking to be guaranteed places of business the soon-to-be-opened remodeled airport facility or, at the very least, to be exempted from pre-qualification requirements that include proving an existing annual turnover of US$ 3 million.
