The US Trade & Development Agency (USTDA) has extended the deadline to provide technical assistance to upgrade Haiti's international airport serving capital Port-au-Prince.
Offers, which were previously due October 11, may now be presented through October 18.
The awardee will work with national airport authority AAN to modernize the airport, which was severely damaged by the January 12 earthquake.
The initiative will involve studying the feasibility and cost of building a parallel taxiway and repairing the airport's runway, building a new international terminal and vehicle parking area, developing an airport security plan, building a new air traffic control tower, power plant, sewage collection system and wastewater treatment plant, and repairing external and internal roads.
The selected firm will be responsible for preparing tenders to carry out the work.
