Minister of State Joseph Harmon

Cabinet at its Sub-Committee on Tuesday, January 15, noted the award of 36 multi-million-dollar contracts by the procurement entities and the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB).

Combined, these contracts cost $3.8 billion.

On Friday, Minister of State Joseph Harmon, at a post Cabinet presser, read out a litany of new contracts. Of note is the fact that several of them feature increased costs from the original price tags.

Other contracts which were awarded included a contract for the Sophia Drop- in Centre, which was almost gutted by a fire in 2016. That contract is worth some $219 million, which turns out to be a revised sum.

“For the construction of a Drop-in Centre at Lot C Sophia, Ministry of Social Protection… this is a variation on the sum based on the additional work to be done on the building. So the original sum was $181 million, and the new sum is $219 million. That contract was awarded to PD Contracting,” Harmon revealed.

These contracts come at a time when a no confidence motion has already been passed against the Government that was supposed to resign in accordance with Guyana’s constitution.
