Main Activities / Functions of the Public Authority.

 GSIDC is a pioneer in the facilitation of infrastructure for the State of Goa; its activities revolve around infrastructure.

GSIDC is like a node wherein the Client Departments of the government approach with proposals for their infrastructural requirements. The activities commence with the appointment of Consultants of the proposed project through competitive bidding. Once the Consultant comes up with a preliminary concept of the proposed project, GSIDC invites the representative of the Client Department for the presentation. Here the concept is frozen on the approval and satisfaction of the Client Department.

The Consultant assists the Client Departments to submit proposals to the various Statutory Bodies for the mandatory approvals. GSIDC acts like a catalyst in speeding up the process of taking clearances and approvals of these statutory bodies. GSIDC ensures that the guidelines and norms laid down by these Statutory Bodies are adhered.

Once the drawings, technicalities and prototypes are finalized by the Consultant, GSIDC does a cross verification of the estimates of these projects. Again, once the estimates are finalized GSIDC invites Work Execution Agencies or Contractors through the Competitive Tendering Process and on successful tendering negotiations are carried out with the agency and the work order is issued. Further, GSIDC ensures that the progress of the project takes place as per the time schedule, crosschecks or verifies the Quality Assurance of the project. All these are done in concurrence with the Consultant of the project. Further, GSIDC verifies the payment for the work progress and completion of the project and the payments are released.

List of services being provided by the Public Authority with a brief write-up on them.

 We are not Service Providers. However, we facilitate the implementation, installation and commissioning of Infrastructural Projects envisaged by the Government and Government Departments on fast track.

Citizen’s interaction – Expectation of the Public Authority from the public for enhancing its effectiveness and efficiency.  

 We do not have a citizen’s interaction practice with our Organization. However, whenever a proposal of a Project comes up from the Client Department, initially before getting into in depth analysis of the project a Project Presentation is done to the Client Department and all their comments, suggestions and advices are taken into account. The process of commissioning of Infrastructure Projects involves huge amount of resources, skills and time. And GSIDC proudly declares it possesses the requisite talent and experience. These projects are basically envisioned to support the amenities required for civilization and society of which infrastructure forms the foundation. Since ours is a SPV (Special Purpose Vehicle) for the speedy implementation of the Infrastructural Projects. There may be some instances, which may cause temporary hindrance or hardships to the daily routine activities of the immediate surroundings, people residing around the vicinity and disturbance in terms of noise pollution etc. But if these observations of the public are represented or conveyed to us through appropriate channels then it will help us to take preventive steps and precautions in an effective manner and help us to tread on the mission and vision which we are committed.
