31 January 2019

​​​​​The committees, formed under the chairmanship of Dr. Tarek Tawfik, the General Supervisor of the Grand Egyptian Museum “GEM", have completed the examination process of the tender pre-qualification documents for the management and operation of the GEM facilities submitted last September by eight major Egyptian and international companies/consortiums. These committees comprise the international companies' representatives (Lord, PWC, Ehaf, Hill), responsible for preparing the tender documents, and a group of senior Egyptian engineering and legal consultants in this field, as well as representatives from the Council of State, the Ministry of Antiquities,  the Ministry of Finance, and the legal office and the engineering office supporting the GEM.

Major General Atef Moftah, head of the GEM Engineering Committee, said that these committees submitted a detailed report on the examination works of the pre-qualification documents to the five-member committee, which was formed upon the Prime Minister's decree. He explained that the committee is headed by Major General Atef Moftah and with the membership of representatives from the Ministry of Antiquities, the Ministry of Investment and International Cooperation “MIIC", the Ministry of Finance, and the Council of State to ensure the integrity and transparency of the procedures, pointing out that the entire tendering procedures were conducted in cooperation with the Ministry of Antiquities, the MIIC, and the Armed Forces Engineering Authority.

Major General Moftah confirmed that the shortlist of international companies/consortiums has been finalized in order to launch the tendering process to select the company/ consortium with the best offer, stating that the shortlist has included four Egyptian-international consortiums and one company (ordered according to the precedence of file submission):

An Egyptian-Italian consortium of Al-Kharafi National and its partners (Fabbro and Munus); an Egyptian-American consortium of Hassan Allam Construction and its partners (Jones Lang Lassalle); an Egyptian-French consortium of Orascom Construction and its partners (Gl event, Louvre, GFM, Engie, and RMN); an Egyptian-British consortium of G4S and its partners (the Egyptian Investment and Project and Development, and Samcrete); and, finally, MAB company from the UAE.

It is planned that tendering and contracting with the consortium/company for managing and operating the GEM facilities will be completed during the fourth quarter of 2019.

Dr. Tarek Tawfik, the General Supervisor of the GEM, assured that such facilities will include managing and operating shops and restaurants (including those overlooking the Giza Pyramids), a conference hall, a movie theater, a traditional crafts and arts center, bookshops, open areas available for events and a multifunctional building. The Ministry of Antiquities shall be solely responsible for managing all matters relating to the security, maintenance and restoration of artifacts in the restoration labs, storages and exhibition halls.        

It is worth mentioning that the international consultant (Lord, PWC, Ehaf, Hill) was entrusted last April to start the procedures of tendering, contracting and preparing the investment plan of tendering to manage and operate the GEM facilities; this shall be according to the international standards in light of the Council of Ministers' decree in this regard. Last June, in cooperation with the MIIC and the Armed Forces Engineering Authority, the Ministry of Antiquities- represented by the GEM- announced the beginning of the pre-qualification to the Egyptian and international companies/consortiums.
