Two contracts for the sum received Cabinet’s “no objection” on Tuesday, April 14.
The first contract which is valued at $32.8M will be expended by GECOM on infomercials for elections.
The second contract valued at $US320, 000 which is equivalent to about 67 Million in local currency will be used by GECOM to procure sensitive items for the elections.
These items include; ballot papers, statement of polls, tally sheets, ink and other such materials associated with the elections.
A well placed source within GECOM said the source of these materials, especially the ballot papers, remains a highly guarded for obvious reasons.
Meanwhile, the cabinet this week also gave its “no objection” to a $219M contract to procure medical supplies for the Georgetown Public Hospital Corp.
