Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development on Further Strengthening

Building and municipal infrastructure works

Guidance on supervision of bidding and tendering

Departments of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of various provinces and autonomous regions, Housing and Urban-Rural Development (Administration) Committees of municipalities directly under the Central Government, and Housing and Urban-Rural Development Bureau of Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps:

The project bidding and tendering system has played an important role in safeguarding national and social public interests, regulating construction market behavior, improving investment efficiency, and promoting a clean government. However, in the current project bidding and bidding activities, the main responsibility of the bidder is lacking, and the problems of collusive bidding and falsification are still prominent. In order to implement the "Opinions of the General Office of the State Council on Promoting the Sustainable and Healthy Development of the Construction Industry" (Guobanfa [2017] No. 19), and the "General Office of the State Council Forwarded the Guiding Opinions of the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development on Improving the Quality Assurance System and Improving the Quality of Construction Projects" Notice (State Administration Letter [2019] No. 92), actively promote the reform of the bidding and bidding system for housing construction and municipal infrastructure projects, strengthen the supervision of bidding and bidding activities of related projects, severely crack down on illegal and illegal issues in the bidding and bidding process, and maintain the order of the construction market Make the following comments.

Government investment projects encourage centralized construction management. ,科学确定并严格执行合理的工程建设周期,保障工程质量安全,竣工验收后移交使用单位,提高政府投资工程的专业化管理水平。 Implement relatively centralized and professional management, adopt the mode of setting up centralized construction institutions or competitively selecting enterprises to implement agent construction, strictly control project investment , scientifically determine and strictly implement a reasonable project construction cycle, ensure project quality and safety, and transfer to users after completion Improve the professional management level of government investment projects.

Second, optimize the bidding method

(3) Narrowing the scope of tenders. For socially invested housing construction projects, the construction unit independently decides the way of outsourcing, and socially invested municipal infrastructure projects decide the way of outsourcing. Government investment projects encourage the use of full-process engineering consulting and general contracting methods to reduce the level of bidding and tendering. According to the contract or with the consent of the tenderer, the general contractor shall independently determine the professional subcontracting. The tenderer shall not designate subcontracting or dismember the project.

(4) Exploring and separating the assessment and promotion methods. The bid inviting party shall scientifically formulate the bid evaluation and calibration method, set up a bid evaluation committee, strengthen the review of the bidder's credit status and performance ability through qualification review, and give priority to innovation, green and other review factors around high-quality development requirements. 对投标文件的技术、质量、安全、工期的控制能力等因素提供技术咨询建议, 向招标人推荐合格的中标候选人The bid evaluation committee provides technical advice and suggestions on the technical, quality, safety, and time-control capabilities of the bidding documents, and recommends qualified bid candidates to the bidder . 按照科学、民主决策原则,建立健全内部控制程序和决策约束机制,根据报价情况和技术咨询建议, 择优确定中标人 ,实现招标投标过程的规范透明,结果的合法公正,依法依规接受监督。 In accordance with the principles of scientific and democratic decision-making, the bidder shall establish and improve internal control procedures and decision-making constraint mechanisms.
