The ZAL Port launches its electronic tendering platform


La ZAL Port inicia la seva plataforma de licitació electrònica

 CILSA, the company owned by the Port of Barcelona and MERLIN Properties which manages the ZAL Port, has launched a public tender electronic platform with the objective of both easing and speeding up the procedures in public procurement and bringing the administration closer to the citizen.

This new initiative responds to the continuous work of CILSA to modernize the internal management procedures of the ZAL Port and to always offer a quality, efficient and transparent service, as well as continue advancing in the electronic administration. Moreover, it emerges as a need to adapt to the current legislation, which imposes the obligation to implement the electronic format on the contracting authorities in public procurement.

CILSA confronts this legal obligation as an opportunity for change, a profit generator both for suppliers and for the administration itself: greater convenience in the processing, elimination of trip with the corresponding savings of time and money, increased transparency, greater competition and participation of the regional business fabric, greater market opening and greater possibility of growth fostered by the ease of interaction with entities in other geographical areas.


Presentation of offers
As of June 2018, the companies who want to participate in public procurement processes at CILSA-ZAL Port will have to submit their bids electronically through the internet, through the electronic tender office of the ZAL Port:

The platform has been contracted with the VORTAL company, exclusive provider in this service, which has permanent support to bidders and fully adapted to the "Public Sector Contracts Law".

To facilitate the management of this new tool, CILSA has organized a training day to inform about the use of the electronic bidding platform and facilitate future efforts which will be made in the Service Center building, tomorrow, Tuesday, June 5, 2018 from 11.00 to 13.00 in room 1.

Additionally, for any questions or clarification about this project that has been launched, citizens and companies can contact by phone 93 552 58 17 or by email
For any questions or clarification about the registration process, suppliers can contact VORTAL's Customer Service on the phone 902 02 02 90 from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 7 pm or via email
