Failure to blacklist the contractors not complying with their contractual obligations has delayed projects
Nov 17, 2016-The Legislature-Parliament’s Development Committee has said it will table a report regarding non-compliance with its directives by stakeholders (government offices) at a House meeting.
At a press conference on Wednesday, the committee shared that the development works have been impeded due to government agencies’ failure to blacklist the contractors that do not comply with their contractual obligations.The report on delay caused by the stakeholders of development works will be tabled at the House meeting within 15 days, said committee Chairperson Rabindra Adhikari. “The development works have been delayed as the concerned authorities have failed to blacklist the contractors who do not
complete the works even several years after the contract signing,” he added.
The committee has made public the report stating that lack of inter-ministerial coordination, negligence on part of contractors, disregard towards the programmes selected through 14-step planning process and manipulation by government officials and leaders, among others, have been putting brakes on development works.
