– cause Education Ministry to pay more for inferior itemsFingers have been pointed to the Clerk of Works and a contractor in a matter that saw the Ministry of Education making payments for items that were of lesser value than was outlined in the Bill of Quantities of a construction project.The Clerk of Works has been implicated in light of the fact that the inferior items were reportedly identified even before payments were made.This development has been highlighted among the discrepancies detailed in a review of the works completed on the $204 million Zeeburg Secondary School in East Bank Essequibo.It was in fact the Audit Office of Guyana that made the disquieting revelation in its Report of the fiscal year ended 2015 where it has called on the Ministry to ensure that all contractors adhere to the specification as stipulated in the Bill of Quantities.According to the Audit Report, in 2014 the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board granted approval for the award of contract in the sum of $204.837M for the construction of the Zeeburg Secondary School.The contract was awarded to the lowest of four bidders. According to the contract, all works were expected to be completed by October 24, 2015.But according to the Audit Report, the Education Ministry was granted approval by the Finance Secretary on December 31, 2015 to enter into multi-year contracts.

However,Cheap Jerseys From China, payments were again made for hardwood doors by the Ministry.When faced with the discrepancies, the Ministry informed the Audit Office that “the Head of Budget Agency indicated that the Ministry will be writing the contractor along with the Clerk of Works on this project with the view of having all corrective works done.”But the Ministry currently has an advantage, since according to the Audit Office,Cheap Jerseys From China, “at this point of time the Ministry still has unpaid sums owing to the contractor and as such, if the contractor fails to undertake the correction, the value of the corrected works will be deducted from the sum owing.” A sum of $41.050 million is currently owed to the contractor.
