Nidco knocks transparency body

The National Infrastructure Development Company (NIDCO) has invited the chairman of the T&T Transparency Institute (TTTI) to a meeting today to review the procurement process used for tendering, evaluation and awarding of the Manzanilla highway extension project to Kallco Ltd.

Nidco confirmed the development via a statement yesterday following a recent TTTI statement on the award of the contract.

A $400 million contract was awarded to Kallco for Package 1 of the Churchill Roosevelt Highway Extension to Manzanilla.

Nidco said it was inaccurate for TTTI to state there is no procurement legislation in place " ...As there is and NIDCO also has tender and procurement policies."

"It is most unfortunate the TTTI would have put out a statement commenting on a tender and evaluation process that it had no factual knowledge of, save, it appears, what may have been carried in the media."
