Notification on Award of Contract

Based on the approval of the Ministerial Tender Committee (MTC), the Department of Agriculture is pleased to notify all bidders who had participated in the “Notice Inviting Tenders” for the Construction of Kuchi-Diana Irrigation Scheme under Samtse Dzongkhag that the contract will be awarded to the following successful bidder:

  • Name of Successful bidder : M/s Chapcha Engineering, Thimphu
  • Date of Work Award Decision : January 29, 2015
  • Contract Amount : Nu. 51,635,148.00

The MTC has decided to provide a grace period of five (5) working days effective from the date of issue of this notification for any clarifications.


The MTC decided to award the work based on the Evaluation Report prepared by the Third Tender Evaluation Committee. The Committee also noted that an arithmetical error on the total amount of M/s Chapcha Engineering’s bid in the First Evaluation Report had resulted in awarding the work to M/s Passang Construction while an oversight to consider equipment of M/s Chapcha Engineering in the Second Evaluation Report caused the work to be recommended to M/s Samphel Drukpa Construction.

Finally, the Third Evaluation Report concurs with the Second Evaluation Committee’s recommendation of its second reassessment. Upon reaching consensus the MTC took the decision to award the work to M/s Chapcha Engineering.

The Department of Agriculture regrets for taking a long time in completing all the tender formalities and at the same time extends our deepest appreciation to all the bidders who had participated in the above tender.
