Mexico’s Baja California Sur state has modified the tender calendars for two public-private partnership contracts, worth an estimated 5.2bn pesos (US$252mn), that will be awarded this year.

The projects concern the 3.9bn-peso, Los Cabos desalination plant and the 1.3bn-peso integral improvement of Cabo San Lucas city’s water distribution system. 

The contracts for both projects were expected to be awarded on March 17 and 18, respectively, but a notification on procurement site Compranet late last week said the dates were changed.
