The Mexican government has called for bids from security companies interested in providing between 12,000 and 15,000 guards to protect almost 3,000 public buildings.
The Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT) published a tender on July 29 that specifies that only one company will be awarded the 16-month government contract. The successful bidder will be announced on August 23.
The guards will provide security for 2,937 buildings belonging to most federal government secretariats and agencies. The buildings include office blocks and public hospitals located in various states and Mexico City.
