Four infra projects which started in 2011 failed to reach target construction completion date.
Infra projects which incurred delay in construction were the repair of Ladies’ Dormitory, completion of the perimeter fence (Risen Christ Area), the Athletic Oval, and the laboratory building.
The delay in the completion of four infra projects are due to the failure of the contractors to finish the construction within the period specified.
Based on the available records from the Bids and Awards Committee (BAC), the two blacklisted contractors were Kingson contractors (contractor of Athletic Oval, Laboratory building, and perimeter fence) and ZKR Contractors and Suppliers (contractor of the repair of the Ladies’ Dormitory).
The said contractors were blacklisted pursuant to Section 69.1 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the Republic Act 9184, and Uniform Guidelines for Blacklisting of Manufacturers, Suppliers, Distributors, Contractors and Consultants.
No lawsuit was filed, but the contractors were penalized and are further not being allowed to participate in the building of all government projects within one year.
The construction of the infra projects are on-going and are carried out by the administration.
“Nagkaproblema kaya administration na lang ang nagpadagos,” CSU Vice President for Administrative and Financial Affairs Prof. Ma. Theresa E. Sarmiento said in an interview with the CSU Statesman.
The construction of the perimeter fence is already completed and the second phase plan of the Athletic Oval is on its 98% completion already.
Additional completed infra projects are the concreting of road network at the back of the administration building and the Main Library Extension.
