State-run Bases Conversion and Development Authority has picked the winning bidder that will prepare the master plan for the development of 36,000 hectares at Clark Special Economic Zone.

“Out of four bidders, the BCDA board approved the consortium of Pros [Planning Resources and Operations Systems Inc.] and Woodfields Consultants,” a reliable source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Manila Standard in a text message Wednesday evening.

The source said the consortium was chosen because of its “highest rating and lowest offer.” The source, however, refused to divulge other important details of the bidding process, especially the offer amount of Pros and Woodfields.

The source also said the winning bidder would be given until the end of the year to prepare the Clark master plan.

The master plan is designed to position Clark economic zone as one of the best investment destinations in Southeast Asia.

Pros is a Quezon City-based company engaged in architectural services while Woodfields Consultants Inc. is an engineering company that provides services such as water resources engineering, flood management and drainage improvement, water supply and sanitation, environment management and solid waste management.

The consortium of PROS and Woodfields beat three other companies that participated in the bidding process.  These were architectural firm Palafox Associates; Aecom Philippines, which is into masterplanning and architecture; and a joint venture of Parsons and Fildravo (Filipinas Dravo Corp.), which is a leading architectural and engineering consultancy firm.

BCDA set a minimum bid price of P26 million, when the bidding was announced in March this year.

BCDA president and chief executive Arnel Paciano Casanova said in March that once the master plan was completed, “it will make Clark a highly-integrated, high-tech green community where Bonifacio Global City meets Silicon Valley amidst lush greenery.”
