There will be two MANDATORY pre-bid conferences. The first one will be on September 20, 2002 at 2:00 p.m. and the second one will be on October 11, 2002 at 2:00 p.m. local time in the Auditorium of the Authority’s Administrative Offices.

All potential bidders shall attend both mandatory pre-bid conferences.
