The TRA intends to provide registrants with answers to all questions that have been submitted in relation to its invitation to tender (ITT) by no later than 17 March 2013. The Authority intends to publish on that date any amendments to the ITT that it deems necessary in line with its responses to the queries. Registrants must submit pre-qualification documentation and information set out in the TRA’s invitation no later than 4:00pm Bahraini time on 21 March 2013.
