Ruling that issues the General Terms and Conditions of the Service “Sistema RNC en Línea”

Ruling No. DG/2014/A-0094 of September 8, 2014, issued by the National Service of Contracting, was published in Official Gazette No. 40,503 of September 23, 2014. Said Ruling contains the General Terms and Conditions of the Service “Sistema RNC en Línea” offered by the National Service of Contracting (Servicio Nacional de Contrataciones - “SNC”) to any natural or legal person, referred to as “user”.  

 

The SNC has implemented a computerized telecommunication system called “Sistema RNC en Línea”, which permits, through the Internet (World Wide Web), the capture, processing, and consolidation of data of the persons interested in being registered with the National Registry of Contractors (Registro Nacional de Contratistas - “RNC”), thus facilitating the contracting processes by means of the registration, evaluation, and provision of the necessary information for choosing the participants. 

 

The user may access said system through the web page  www.snc.gob.ve  or through the direct access icons located in the different web pages of public or private, natural and legal persons, with whom/which the SNC has executed the relevant affiliation agreements, in order for the users to be able to load the data of their companies, with the purpose of being included in the RNC and for the State Entities to obtain the necessary information about the Contractors registered with the RNC in a reliable and timely manner through the Internet.

 

The user will have access to the use of the “Sistema RNC en Línea” by introducing a valid electronic mail and a password, which will later become the login to access the system. The passwords will be personal, confidential, and untransferable.

The only purpose of the “Sistema RNC en Línea” is to facilitate and expedite the communication between the USER and the SNC. Each of the operations that may be made and the instructions, requests and communications that may be sent through the “Sistema RNC en Línea” will be governed by the rules to be issued.  The rates to be paid by the user to the SNC as compensation for the use of the Service “Sistema RNC en Línea” or for each of the operations made through said system, as well as the method and time of payment and the other related obligations derived from the others will be unilaterally established by the SNC, and they may be modified in the same manner when the SNC deems it pertinent.

The information provided by the user to the RNC is public and it may be consulted by any person requesting it according to the provisions of the Public Contracting Law in force. Likewise, any user that modifies or alters the content of the data approved by the RNC will be subject to the civil and criminal penalties prescribed to that end in the Constitution of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and other applicable national laws.

Administrative Ruling No. DG/2013/A-0182 of June 4, 2013 is repealed.

 

This Ruling became effective on September 23, 2014.
