$247K to furnish Finance Ministry
The government has awarded a contract valuing just under a quarter-million dollars to furnish the Ministry of Finance’s offices located at RFG Place on Waterfront Drive in Road Town.
This $247,871.7 contract was awarded to Island Services (BVI) Ltd.
Cabinet awarded the contract on the recommendation of the Central Tenders Board’s technical sub-committee.
The specific terms of the agreement are for Island Services to both supply and install the furniture, a Cabinet decision document on its May 28 meeting released last week stated.
During that meeting, Cabinet also reviewed and considered the strategic plan for delivery of the House of Assembly Reconfiguration Project which is estimated to cost more than $100,000.
The Cabinet decided that the project should be implemented using a series of petty contracts in accordance with the strategic plan presented.
The decision document did not specify what the reconfiguration project was.
