Revised Tender Evaluation Process for State Properties identified for Child Care Centres and Kindergartens

Revised Tender Evaluation Process for State Properties identified for Child Care Centres and Kindergartens

From November 2013, a revised tender evaluation process will be used to evaluate bids put in by Child Care and Kindergarten operators for State-owned properties. This is a joint effort by the Early Childhood Development Agency (ECDA) and the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) to further improve the quality and affordability of pre-school centres operating on State properties.

Under the revised process, the quality and affordability of the programmes to be offered by operators bidding for State-owned properties will be taken into account. This is in addition to factors assessed under the current process, which include among others, the tendered price, proposed uses, track record and financial health of the bidder.

A summary of the revised evaluation criteria is provided at Annex A.

This new initiative complements the revised tender evaluation process for commercial child care centres in HDB premises introduced in July 2013, which similarly takes into account quality and affordability factors.

Senior Minister of State for Ministry of Law and Education, Ms Indranee Rajah said, “This change will allow the Government to assess operators’ bids more holistically. It will encourage pre-school operators to  focus on quality and affordability of programmes,  which will be to the benefit of our pre-school children and their parents.”

The first three State properties to come under the revised tender process are located at 511 East Coast Road, 60 Sengkang East Way and 240 Outram Road. They will be put out for tender for child care or kindergarten use on 5 November 2013.
