PETALING JAYA: Mass Rapid Transit Corp Sdn Bhd (MRT Corp) has issued an invitation to prospective companies to participate in the request for proposal (RFP) for the Mass Rapid Transit 3 (MRT3) Circle Line project management consultancy services work package.

MRT Corp said the tender process would commence next month.

In a statement, the company said this would be the first tender to be called for the construction of the 51km MRT Circle Line which received the government’s go-ahead on March 4.

On March 15, Transport Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong announced that construction of the MRT3 Circle Line project would involve five work packages comprising project management consultancy, three civil works and one system works packages.

MRT Corp CEO Datuk Mohd Zarif Hashim said the project management consultant (PMC) would be assisting the company in managing the MRT3 Circle Line Project and be responsible for the timely delivery of the project within the stipulated budget.

“Besides assisting MRT Corp, we also expect the PMC to serve the needs of the civil and system work package contractors too so that we can work together effectively to deliver the project,” he said.

The RFP is open to companies that have experience in managing at least one railway project in Malaysia or overseas of a minimum aggregate value of RM1bil.

The project should also have at least two of three following elements: elevated stations and viaducts, underground stations and bored tunnels, or railway systems, according to the statement.

Companies can form joint ventures or consortiums of not more than three members to participate in the RFP.

The RFP is open to Malaysian companies while minority foreign participation is allowed through joint ventures or consortiums where the Malaysian companies hold at least 60% equity, according to MRT Corp in the statement.
