Court to review Brazil waste deal

The São Paulo audit court TCE is to review the validity of a signed waste management PPP in the Brazilian city of Barueri.

TCE is planning to review the $184m urban solid waste management deal, which was awarded to the Barueri Energia consortium in 2012, following complaints related to the bidding process.

Local firms Usina Verde and Construtora Ferreira have questioned the procedure, claiming that it did not include the court's evaluation schedule.

The project was won in January of last year by a consortium made up of local firms Foxx Soluções Ambientais and Tecipa Engenharia e Meio Ambiente.

This tender came after an expression of interest was issued in December 2009.
