Low bids disqualified in Panama scandal

Thursday, May 11, 2017


Contractors who submitted lower prices when bidding on water and sewer projects in Panama were often disqualified while the job went to a Spanish company, now the center of a  new Panama bribery scandal.

Contracts  granted to the Inter­ American Water and Services Company (Inassa) between 2010 and 2015 are being investigated in Spain for possible corruption. In the investigation, called the “Lezo case,” the manager of Inassa, Javier Domínguez, is identified as “directly responsible for the payment of bribes to civil servants.”
