Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / Railway construction
Spanish term or phrase: testimonio social
In the following sentence...

"La Licitación a que se refiere la presente Convocatoria se realizará con la presencia y testimonio social de (Company X)."

...I'm having trouble finding a suitable translation for 'testimonio social'. Would it suffice to say '...will be overseen by...' instead of 'con la presencia y testimonion social', or is there something important that I'm missing?

Many thanks in advance,

Vicky

En la ceremonia de apertura de propuestas habrá representantes de la empresa que invita a la licitación, pero esto es tan obvio, que me extraña la redacción. Hace falta más contexto para poder darte una respuesta segura.

On second thought, I think the meaning is "the bid process will be witnessed by representatives of xxxxx."

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks, María. Is there any other 'obvious' context I've missed out? I ask this because this sentence stands alone in the document, there is nothing immediately before or after it - it's 'floating'.

Asker: Thanks, María, I really appreciate that, but I think your suggestion was what I was looking for/looking to confirm - many thanks for all your help!
