NPC approves 2 contracts, cancels 4 road contracts

The National Procurement Committee in a meeting on Saturday approved two contracts worth 600mn AFN, cancelled four roads construction contracts and rejected a contract belonging to the Ministry of Defense (MoD).

One of the approved contracts belonged to the Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), Afghanistan’s national utility company, and another to the Ministry of Public Works.

Chaired by President Ashraf Ghani, the committee cancelled four road construction contracts and one contract of the MoD due to poor progress and sub-standard quality materials used by the construction companies.

The cancellation of the road contracts follows after the assessment of the projects by a joint delegation from the NPC and the Ministry of Economy. The delegation was assigned to discuss the construction contracts with the Ministry of Public Works and provide suggestions to the NPC.

According to a statement from the Presidential palace, the companies’ officials, who failed to carry out their responsibilities as agreed in the contracts, had been introduced to judicial organs.

President Ghani emphasized that any contractor who failed to abide the agreement would face the law and added that construction companies for future construction projects should be classified based on their quality.
