JR Engineering monopolizes contracts for oxygen plants

The Social Security Institute (IPS) awarded the company Javier Recalde Encina for the supply and installation of an oxygen generation plant. The value of the contract is G. 5,000 million. The tender ID is 399.315.

This oxygen plant will be destined for the IPS Hospital located in Villarrica.

For this tender, offers began to be received on Thursday, September 2 of last year. The IPS carried out the call under the category called “Major machinery, equipment and tools – transport equipment”, for the type of National Public Bidding (LPN) procedure.

The aforementioned institution awarded 31 items. Its legal representative is Javier Recalde Encina. Two more companies responded to the call: Eberhard Lewkowitz SRL and LCM Sociedad Anónima.

OBSERVATIONS
The National Directorate of Public Procurement (DNCP) made three observations on this call for tenders.

The first is that JR Engineering did not submit its affidavit of assets and income, assets and liabilities, as required by law 6355/19.

The second and third observations had to do with documentary issues that were not detailed but that, in the same way, postponed the agreement for almost eight months.

STRIKING ASPECTS
What is striking is that the IPS had already contracted the firm in September of last year for the provision and installation and start-up of PSA-type medicinal oxygen generating plants for hospitals and IPS health posts for G. 51,559 million (US$ 7 .5 million). The ID of this call was 399312.

Despite this million-dollar contract, the firm was awarded again for the installation of similar plants, just two months later, in October of last year for the contract described at the beginning of the article. The same is only now published because the observations of the DNCP required a clarification before the process advances.

We tried to communicate with Javier Recalde Encina himself to find out more details about these successive millionaire contracts, however our calls to the low line found on the DNCP portal (termination 058) were not answered.
