3 Bidders for Mumbai-Ahmedabad HSR’s Project Mgmt Consultancy

Three firms on Tuesday submitted bids to provide project management consultancy (PMC) services for civil construction of the 508.17 km Mumbai – Ahmedabad High Speed Rail (MAHSR Bullet Train) project which’ll connect both cities through 12 stations at an estimated cost of Rs. 1.1 lakh crore (US $15 billion).

India’s National High Speed Rail Corporation (NHSRCL) in December 2016 had appointed a General Consultant (GC) team comprising of Japan International Consultants for Transportation – Nippon Koei – Oriental Consultants Global, but is now looking to appoint a dedicated PMC to manage construction work, a bulk of which has been awarded to Larsen & Toubro (L&T).

NHSRCL had invited tenders (bids) for the PMC service’s contract on November 11 and plans to select a consultant based on the Quality and Cost Based Selection (QCBS) method.

Lead Bidders:

  • Engineers India Ltd.
  • Nippon Koei Co. Ltd.
  • TATA Consulting Engineers Ltd.

Package: NHSRCL/CO/CA/MA-SVGC/2020/34

Brief Scope: Project Management Consultancy Services for Construction of Civil Works Packages of Mumbai Ahmedabad HSR

The bids have now been sent for technical evaluation which can take a couple months to complete. When that is done, the financial bids of the technically qualified bidders will be opened to reveal who’s the lowest bidder. A PMC will then be selected based on the combined score.

    Transportation Co. Ltd– Nippon Koei – Oriental Consultants Global were awarded GC. Synergiz Global was also awarded consultancy services with certain scope. Now this PMC. The scope being catered by each consultancy is very much confusing. Do you have any details of the same @TMRG?
