The ministry is planning to prequalify at least five companies before issuing tenders for financial bids by mid-January. An award is due by early February. Tenders for the first construction package are expected by mid-2005.

The project calls for the construction of two general hospitals, a psychiatric hospital, a women and children's hospital and a smaller community hospital to be built by 2009 (MEED 8:10:04).
