c/ A bidding plan must clearly state the number of bidding packages and the details of each. The details of each bidding package include title and price of the bidding package, funding source, form of contractor selection and bidding method, time of contractor selection, form of contract and time of contract performance.
d/ The division of a project into different bidding packages must be based on its technical nature and implementation process to ensure the project's synchronous implementation and the reasonable size of each package (suitable to the practical conditions and circumstances of the project, current contractor's capability and domestic market development). A bidding package must have only one bidding dossier and shall be put up for bidding once. A bidding package shall be implemented under one contract. A bidding package consisting of independent components may be implemented under one or more than one contract.
2. When making a bidding plan, the investor should use the form provided in Part III of this Circular.
3. Submission for approval of bidding plans
The investor shall submit a bidding plan to the investment decider or a person authorized to decide on investment (below collectively referred to as investment decider) for consideration and approval, and concurrently to the appraisal agency or organization.

(2) If the bidding package price includes also a provision, specify the provision value.
The total value of performed jobs, jobs not subject to contractor selection and jobs under the bidding plan must not exceed the project's total investment.
2. Explanations on the bidding plan1
a/ Title of bidding package and bases for division of bidding packages
- Title of bidding package
The title of a bidding package should generalize the nature, details and scope of work of the bidding package and relevant to the jobs of the project.
If a bidding package consists of separate parts (many lots), its title should include the title of each part which should express the basic details of such part.
- Bases for division of bidding packages
The division of a project into bidding packages must be based on the contents of the project, nature of jobs, their timing and the following principles:
+ Ensuring the technical and technological synchronism of the project. The project's jobs should not be divided into too small bidding packages, which can badly affect such synchronism.
+ Ensuring the project implementation schedule.
+ Ensuring a rational size (suitable to the project's conditions and circumstances, capacity of existing contractor and compliance with domestic market development).
+ Each bidding package should have only one bidding dossier or requirement dossier and be put up for bidding only once.
The division of a project into different bidding packages against regulations for the purpose of contractor
1 Explain the details of the bidding plan table. It is not necessary to explain clear details (title of bidding package or public bidding...).
designation or creating opportunity for the participation of few contractors is a violation of the bidding law.
b/ Bidding package price
The price of a bidding package includes all expenses for performing a bidding package (including also provision) determined on the basis of the approved total investment, total cost estimate or cost estimate (if any) and current regulations.
For ODA-funded projects, the price of a bidding package should also be determined on the basis of the international treaty or agreement already signed between a competent agency of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the donor.
For a bidding package consisting of different parts, its price in the bidding plan should specify the estimated price of each part.
For a big and complicated bidding package with a long performance period for which, at the time of making a bidding plan, it is impossible to anticipate all jobs and expenses, its price should also include a provision. For a bidding package to procure ordinary goods in the form of package contract, its price is not required to include a provision.
If the price of a bidding package includes a provision, the bidding plan should clearly indicate such. The determination of provisions and jobs which need provisions should comply with relevant regulations. For a construction and installation bidding package, it should comply with the construction law.
When participating in a bidding, contractors calculate their bids based on the bidding package's work volume to be performed. So. if the price of a bidding package includes a provision, the evaluation and determination of successful bids should be based on the price of the bidding package minus the provision.
The provision in the price of a bidding package is used to cover arising jobs and price increases in the course of contract performance and facilitate contract adjustment (if any).
When making a bidding plan, if the detailed designs and cost estimates for construction and installation jobs have been approved, the price of the bidding package should be determined on the basis of the cost estimates for construction and installation jobs corresponding to the bidding package.
Note: The provision not yet allocated mentioned in Part III (total provision of the project minus provisions already allocated in bidding packages) should be used to cover increased expenses when the approved cost estimate is higher than the approved bidding package price.
c/ Capital source:
For each bidding package, specify the capital source or capital arrangement method for payment to contractor.
Specifying the capital source for payment to contractor is a compulsory requirement when making a bidding plan, which aims to avoid the case in which payment cannot be made to contractors that have finished the contracts.
In case of using ODA capital, specify the name of the donor and capital structure (foreign and domestic capital).
d/ Form of contractor selection and bidding method
- Form of contractor selection
Depending on the nature and characteristics of each bidding package, determine the form of contractor selection in accordance with current bidding law. When applying a form other than public bidding, give the reason.
When selecting public or restricted bidding, indicate whether it is domestic or international and requires prequalification selection.
For procurement or EPC bidding packages valued at VND 300 billion or more and installation and construction ones valued at VND 200 billion or more according to regulations, prequalification selection is required. If these bidding packages subject to hi-tech requirements, specific technical requirements or of research and experimental nature, which in reality few contractors can meet, restricted bidding without prequalification selection may be applied.
- Bidding method
The bidding method involving one dossier bag applies to public and restricted bidding for procurement, construction and installation and EPC bidding packages.
The bidding method involving two dossier bags applies to public and restricted bidding for consultancy service provision bidding packages.
The bidding method involving two stages applies to public and restricted bidding for procurement, construction and installation and EPC bidding packages with new. sophisticated and diversified techniques and new technologies which the investors do not clearly understand and are unable to set clear technical requirements.
dd/ Time of contractor selection
The time of contractor selection is a period of time for performing such jobs as selecting contractors at the prequalification stage (if any), preparing bidding dossiers and bid invitation notices, issuing bidding dossier, preparing bid dossiers, evaluating bid dossiers, submitting evaluations and approving contractor selection results, negotiating, finalizing and signing contracts. For performing these jobs, the time of contractor selection must be long enough before the time of contract performance.
e/ Form of contract
Depending on the nature and requirements of jobs of bidding packages, use the form of contract compliant with regulations to prevent the application of unfeasible contracts, resulting in adjustments and supplements in the course of contract performance.
In case a bidding package involves different jobs corresponding to different forms of contract, such bidding package may use different forms of contract.
In case a bidding package involves different jobs with specified volumes and no price fluctuations arising in the course of performance, apply the form of package contract. For construction and installation contracts in the course of performance of which there may arise new volumes and market fluctuations (unanticipated fluctuations in the prices of construction materials and supplies), causing risks to investors and contractors, apply the form of unit price-based contract.
g/ Contract performance period
The contract performance period for each bidding package should be specified in accordance with the implementation schedule of the entire project.
V. JOBS WHICH LACK CONDITIONS FOR MAKING BIDDING PLANS (IF ANY)
If. at the time of making a bidding plan, the project has some jobs which lack conditions for forming bidding packages (the project has not yet allocated investment capital sources), specify the details and value of such jobs in the bidding plan.
On the basis of the above analyses, the (name of investor) proposes the competent person to consider and approve the bidding plan (title of bidding package or project).
When necessary, the investor may request the competent person to consider authorizing the investor to approve some specific matters, such as bidding dossier and results of contractor selection for simple and small bidding packages.
We would like to submit the report to the (name of competent person) for consideration and decision.-
