Comunicado: Concessão do serviço público de transporte marítimo de passageiros e carga entre ilhas

Concurso Público Internacional

International Public Tender

 

A melhoria da ligação entre as ilhas constitui uma das grandes prioridades deste Governo. Cabo Verde é um arquipélago e a ligação entre as ilhas é fundamental para assegurar a movimentação de passageiros e cargas, de modo a garantir a unificação do mercado nacional, trazendo a dinâmica à economia, através da criação de novas oportunidades de negócios e de investimentos.

Com este propósito, o Governo de Cabo Verde lança um concurso público internacional para selecionar um parceiro estratégico, com know-how comprovado neste ramo de atividades, que através de uma concessão única, passa a fazer a gestão e a exploração do serviço público de transporte marítimo de passageiro e cargas inter-ilhas.

A concessão será atribuída através de um concurso público internacional, competitivo e transparente, seguindo as regras de contratação pública de Cabo Verde. Será um concurso limitado por prévia qualificação sendo que, na primeira fase, os interessados deverão submeter as suas manifestações de interesse e, numa segunda fase, apresentar as suas propostas técnicas e financeiras.

Após a manifestação de interesse os candidatos serão avaliados e selecionados com base nos seguintes requisitos:

  1. Capacidade Técnica;
  2. Capacidade Financeira.

Os interessados deverão entregar as manifestações de interesse até o dia 5 de março de 2018, às 15:30. No dia 15 de março, os selecionados para a segunda fase serão convidados a apresentar a sua proposta técnica e financeira.

Os selecionados terão 45 dias (até 18 de maio) uteis para apresentar as suas propostas técnicas e financeiras. Até 8 de junho será conhecida a proposta vencedora com a qual serão iniciadas as negociações.

A 4 de julho de 2018 espera-se concluir o processo, com a assinatura do contrato.

CABO VERDE - At A Glance

cvHistory

Cabo Verde is located 350 miles off the coast of West Africa and consists of ten volcanic islands (Santo Antao, S. Vicente, Santa Luzia, S. Nicolau, Sal, Boavista, Maio, Santiago, Fogo and Brava).

It was one of the main transit areas for the transatlantic slave trade to the Americas and Europe. In 2009, Cidade Velha, in the Island of Santiago, was named World Heritage Site by UNESCO, in recognition of Cape Verde’s role in shaping new anthropologic and cultural realities in those two Continents.

Cabo Verde became independent from Portugal on July 5th, 1975, following the liberation struggle led by the African Party for the Liberation of Guinea Bissau and Cabo Verde – PAIGC. The archipelago’s history has always been one of major challenges poised by economic and environmental vulnerabilities. Severe droughts in the first half of the 20th century prompted heavy immigration, resulting in an expatriate population that is larger than the resident one.

Cabo Verde is a stable democracy with a sound economic management. For the last four years, it has been rated by the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, as one of the best governed Sub-Saharan African countries.

Economy

Cabo Verde became a member of the WTO and graduated from the LDC status in 2008. Major policy reforms and programs brought important changes and progresses in areas such as governance, public administration, information technologies, economic growth and human capital, thus placing the country in the path to achieve most MDGs by 2015. The economy is service oriented with commerce, transport, tourism, and public services accounting for most of the GDP.
