SMMC signs tender contract for CCTVs, access control system | THE DAILY HERALD

SMMC Project Manager Ingeborg Verwoerdt with Roof Mechanics and Structures BV representative Maurice Lloyd and SMMC’s Assistant IT Manager Theodor van Dam.

CAY HILL–St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) recently finalised one of its open tenders with the signing of the contract for the delivery of closed-circuit television (CCTV) equipment and an access control system to expand and replace the current installation in place at the hospital.

The project funded by the World Bank-managed Trust Fund consists of the delivery of additional CCTV equipment to expand the current cameras and the purchase of a new access control system which will replace the current system being used at the SMMC building and Care Complex, SMMC said in a press release on Tuesday.

SMMC Project Manager Ingeborg Verwoerdt said the replacement of the access control system and expansion of CCTV sets will allow for improved monitoring of certain areas and will contribute to the overall safety of patients and staff.

“After a thorough evaluation by SMMC’s Procurement Committee of the in-total nine received bids, the contract was awarded to Roof Mechanics and Structures BV. The required cabling will be installed over the next few weeks and estimates are that the installation of all components can start per mid-June,” Verwoerdt said.

To participate in Trust Fund-funded projects, companies can register via the “Renovation and Reconstruction” section on SMMC’s website:

SMMC has launched a special unit called the Project Management Unit (PMU) that will oversee all procurement in relation to the World Bank projects, will keep interested companies updated when projects come up for tender and will able to send them the tender documents directly.
