For the lawful benefits of the applicants as well as the effective use of executive resources, the vice-chairman of The Public Construction Commission (PCC) Chun-jing Chen announces that, since August 5th, 2012, according to Item 1, Article 14 in the Regulations Governing Fees for the Mediation for Dispute Regarding the Performance of the Contract for Government Procurement, when the application for mediation is withdrawn within ten days after the first date of mediation, half of the mediation fee shall be refunded, and the limits of the mediation fee is NT$200,000.

PCC indicates, in order to encourage the applicants to withdraw their applications early and save the time, human and material resources of the executive procedures for both the applicants and the Complaint Review Board for Government Procurement (CRBGP), the Regulations Governing Fees for the Mediation for Dispute Regarding the Performance of the Contract for Government Procurement– Item 1, Article 14, was revised on March 6th, 2007, where when the application for mediation is withdrawn within ten days after the first date of mediation, half of the mediation fee shall be refunded. After years of actual practices, applicants frequently complained that the mediation fee is still too high. Due to only having held one mediation meeting, the time, human and material resources of CRBGP spent are comparatively less. PCC took considerations of general public interests and the purpose of serving the industries, and initiated a review. Therefore, Item 1 of the existing provisions is updated from if the application for mediation is withdrawn within ten days after the first date of mediation, half of the mediation fee shall be refunded to include if the amount that isn’t refunded exceeds NT$200,000, the upper limit of the mediation fee is NT$200,000.
