NHA launches E-billing system

Federal Minister for Communications and Postal Service Murad Saeed launched the E-Billing System at the National Highway Authority (NHA) in the last week of July 2019. The system is designed to ensure speedy processing of bills and transparency and ultimately it will help control corruption, besides saving time by 50 percent.

The working of the E-billing system is such that the contractor will submit bill at NHA E-Billing Portal and consultant will verify/certify the bill. The project authority will exercise laid down check and sanction payment. The Finance Wing will process and accord approval of payment prior to release of payment to beneficiary.

The NHA chairman said that the launch of e-billing system is a great achievement. As per vision of the present government, the NHA is also working over e-bidding and making human resource management more active.

E-Billing system is in-house development through the use of own expertise and resources of the NHA. The system will help redress the complaints and fixing of responsibility in case of any delay. The system will create atmosphere of mutual confidence between the NHA and contractors.

Federal Secretary Communications Jawwad Rafique Malik, Chairman NHA Captain Sikandar Qayyum (retd), and senior officers from the Ministry of Communications and NHA attended the launching ceremony.
