The following amendments have been made:

  1. Contractors registered under the Authority Civil Works for Upolu Category B are now eligible to submit bids for this tender process.
  2. The deadline for bid submission is now extended to Monday, 16th March, 2020 instead of the 9th of March 2020 as been stipulated and scheduled for in the original tender document.
  3. Addition of item 5.13 and item 5.14 to the Bill of Quantities. The amendments are incorporated in the attached BOQ and should therefore be used in the preparation of bid; thus disregarding the BOQ initially given in the tender document.
