WAPDA facing objections on four contracts worth $ 6 billion

Transparency International – Pakistan (TI-P) has spoken about its uncertainties on four contracts worth $ 6 billion awarded by Water and Power Development Authority. The complaint states that since last two years WAPDA does not have a permanent member and out of three members, there is no permanent member of Water and Power, yet during these two years four contracts have been awarded in violation of PPRA Rules. WAPDA has filed a CMA in Supreme Court in which it is stated that it is clear from the careless attitude of the petitioner that somebody is trying to create difficulty which will affect the smooth and timely construction of Mohmand Dam. The second objected point is the contract of Consultancy Services for Construction Design, Constriction Supervision and Construction Administration of Diamer-Bhasha dam project. The third objected contract which has raised questions is construction of Mohmand Dam Project whereas fourth contract is of Diamer Basha dam project. Transparency International Pakistan has requested the Managing Director to examine the complaint received at TI Pakistan and forwarded with its comments, questions and suggestions to check and inquire on the alleged uncertainties of proffered processes.
