Companies and consortiums should submit offers by December 9. Subcontracting is not allowed, according to procurement documents. Each bidder must have minimum capital of 150,000 reais (US$60,294) and relevant experience.

The infrastructure will support works included in a larger 504mn-real water supply initiative being planned by state water utility Sabesp to ease the impact of a severe drought.

Sabesp's project involves the interconnection of the Jaguari reservoir in the Paraíba do Sul river basin with the Atibainha reservoir in the PCJ basin.
