CUC seeks proposals to fast-track power system restoration

THE Commonwealth Utilities Corp. on Friday issued an emergency request for proposals for the restoration of electric power distribution system on Saipan in line with the ongoing disaster recovery efforts.

“This is to increase the support on the ground,” CUC Executive Director Gary Camacho told Variety. “We are trying to add more people.”

CUC is seeking proposals from qualified and experienced contractors.

Camacho said the emergency procurement is under the authority of Gov. Ralph D.L.G. Torres pursuant to 1 CMC § 20144.

“Time is of the essence in order to restore power to the people of Saipan — as such, no protests will be entertained,” Camacho added.

CUC was scheduled to conduct a mandatory pre-proposal conference and site survey on Nov. 12, Monday, in the CUC main conference room at Joeten Dandan Commercial Building.

Camacho said immediately after the conference, they would conduct a site survey of the affected areas to allow interested proposers to familiarize themselves with the site conditions and do their own preliminary assessments prior to submitting proposals.
