BCDA chairperson of the Asset Disposition Program Committee Nena Radoc said interested parties may still buy the Terms of Reference (TOR) until April 02, the new deadline for purchase of TOR.
She said interested bidders could purchase the TOR for a non-refundable fee of P50,000.00 payable to BCDA in manager’s check until April 02, at the BCDA Corporate Center, 2nd Floor, Bonifacio Technology Center, 31st St. corner 2nd Avenue, Bonifacio Global City.

BCDA is bidding out the lease and development of the SCTEX Macangcung Service Area lot in Brgy. Santiago, Conception, Tarlac. The lot is located at the Clark-bound or northbound side of the Clark-Tarlac segment.
The development of the property involves establishing, operating, and maintaining a gasoline station on the site, along with amenities such as rest rooms, parking slots, an emergency first-aid station, a lighting system, potable water, an emergency vehicle repairs shop, and convenience stores.
Radoc said the minimum starting annual fixed lease would be P3.5 million, starting on the 5th year and subject to a 5% annual increase. Thus, there would be a rent-free period from the first to 4th year.
She said that upon contract signing, the winning bidder shall remit to BCDA a security deposit equivalent to the winning bid and shall post a surety bond with a face value of P7 million.
