The Government of Québec announced today that it had accepted revised bids following the expiry of an extended deadline on tendering parties in which to do so.

On January 13, 2010, the government had provided a 60-day extension for bidders on the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC) and Research Centre of the University of Montreal Hospital Centre (CRCHUM) projects to review their previous tenders in order to respect budgetary constraints of 1,343 B$ and 470 M$ respectively.

The government is now reviewing tenders and expects to have completed the process and announced the successful proponents in the upcoming weeks. Construction on the projects is expected to begin in the Spring of 2010, as per the original project schedule.
