Natural gas pipeline construction

This is the prequalification stage for companies interested in this project. The prequalification is required by the state-owned petroleum company, Yacimientos Petroliferos Fiscales de Bolivia, for the construction and equipping of a 563.4-kilometer natural gas pipeline to Brazil between the Rio Grande plant located 40 kilometers from the city of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and Puerto Quijarro, on the eastern border with the Republic of Brazil. This project at present lacks financing but it is likely to be financed by the World Bank, IDB and other bilateral financing sources.

Project requires construction, installation, equipment and other related services. The pipeline will be a turnkey project and it is a government priority. The natural gas pipeline to Brazil is 20 inches o.d. diameter gas pipe. It will be underground in its full extension except in river crossings.

Interested companies may purchase prequalification bid specifications from the secretary of the Board of Directors of YPFB for 200.00 bolivianos (approximately $70.00), at the below address.

Computer system

Address: as in the below mentioned address. Goods: the Royal Air Force is replacing and updating the computer hardware used for aptitude testing. The system will consist of a network of about 55 microcomputers, mostly test stations, but also management and development machines. It will run Ministry of Defence copyright software to provide simultaneous testing of 44 subjects on a wide variety of validated psychological tests, such as interactive pilot coordination tests involving complex and animated graphics. It will also have permanent data storage for archiving and queries.

In general terms the test stations will be standard micros each of which will have a real-time dedicated operating system to run the tests. The test responses, derived from the non-standard peripherals, i.e. rudder pedal and numeric key pad/joystick assembly, will be stored in non-volatile memory. The test stations normally form part of the local area network, but are required to be capable of operating in stand alone mode. The aptitude test and system software has been ported by the RAF to ANSI C so that it compiles and runs on suitable replacement hardware, with the minimum of additional software development work by the RAF. International interest in this RAF aptitude testing system is growing, for it has wide application: versions are in use under MOD license by airlines and other air forces in their own languages.

Reference PRT 142/00629 to be quoted in all communications. Suppliers are expected to quote for the supply of the complete system and to take prime contractor responsibility for the provision and maintenance of all the necessary hardware, software and supporting services.
