L.A. 2013 is in the same week as Gstaad and Umag, while Kitzbuhel is with Washington. If Bogota is to be hosting the tournament, it's not gonna be in 2013 as a direct replacement (2013 is just not gonna have a tournament there anymore), but rather starting with 2014 in a new spot in the year's calendar, when players can be encouraged to make the trip to Bogota. It will probably replace the spot of the current Bogota 125K Challenger.

Some random guy just watching tennis.
