News from Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games Organising Committee
Lima: The Lima 2019 Pan American and Parapan American Games Organising Committee today hosted an information seminar for over 500 Peruvian and international companies interested in participating in tenders for Games-time technology, broadcasting, commercial and marketing services.
The event was held at the Lima Chamber of Commerce, and was led by Lima 2019 President Carlos Neuhaus alongside senior members of the Lima 2019 Organising Committee.
President Neuhaus provided potential contractors with an update on preparations for the Games. Lima 2019 Head of Legal Amalia Moreno then explained the legal framework behind the procurement process for companies interested in working with Lima 2019.
The procurement process will be handled by the UK government, according to the terms of the government-to-government agreement signed with Peru in April 2017. The procurement process follows the UK’s New Engineering Contract (NEC) model and has allowed Lima 2019 to significantly speed-up its infrastructure projects. The NEC model’s transparent, efficient approach has generated great interest from potential contractors.
Speaking after the event, President Neuhaus said: “Today marks an important step in the delivery of a memorable Games in 2019. Every multi-sport event needs a diverse pool of expertise so we are delighted by the number of companies that have participated today.
“Our objective is to deliver a high-calibre event for athletes and fans whilst leaving a meaningful legacy for Lima and Peru. That is why we look forward to reviewing proposals and incorporating new talent and experience into the team to help us achieve our goal.”
