President to swear in members after finalisation of terms, conditions

first_imgPublic Procurement CommissionPresident David Granger is awaiting the parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) to finalise the remuneration packages, Terms of Reference and other administrative arrangements before swearing in the members of the much-anticipaIfraan Alited Public Procurement Commission (PPC).Minister of State,Joseph HarmonPresident David GrangerThis is according to Minister of State, Joseph Harmon, who explained during the post-Cabinet briefing on Thursday that the work of the PAC was preliminary to the appointment of the members. He noted that before the members of the PPC are sworn in, the PAC needed to finalise certain terms and conditions.“As soon as the Public Accounts Committee sits, there are some proposals which will go before it in so far as salaries and things like that. The law requires the Chairman of the (Public Procurement) Commission is a full-time employee of that commission, which means that those persons who are named – one of them will be a chairman and another will be a vice chairman, and if they are working somewhere else, one of those persons will have to leave their job,” the Minister of State outlined.Harmon continued, “So, if you are working somewhere and going for another job, at least you must know what the salary you will be getting before you leave your job, and so it is some of these terms and conditions that have to be settled by the Public Accounts Committee.”At the end of July 2016, the PAC agreed on the nominees for the PPC, and that list was subsequently approved by a two-thirds majority of the National Assembly on August 8.The approved members include Attorney Emily Dodson, Carol Corbin, University of Guyana lecturer Sukrishnalall Pasha, educator Ivor English and former Labour Minister Nanda Gopaul.This list was subsequently sent to the Head of State for the members to be sworn in, but this is yet to be done, as Government is awaiting the finalisation of the terms and conditions for the Commission.However, PAC Chairman, Opposition parliamentarian Irfaan Ali recently pointed out that the President could go ahead with swearing in the members of the Procurement Commission, as he did not have to necessarily wait for the Committee to finish its work on the PPC.Nevertheless, Ali assured that the PAC, “after the Parliament comes out of recess, would be moving to have this issue as a priority on its agenda in setting out the administrative mechanism to support the work of the Public Procurement Commission, so there is nothing that is stopping the President from swearing in the members of the Public Procurement Commission”.Meanwhile, Harmon said on Thursday that Government was also supportive of fast-tracking the process at the level of the Parliamentary Committee.“We will like that to be a top priority as well, and we will give that our full support to ensure that it is fast tracked,” he stated.On the other hand, the Minister of State outlined that once the PPC was set up, it would pave the way for the establishment of the Public Procurement Tribunal – a process which the Commission would need to have a say in. “The Public Procurement Commission has a role in the selecting of that tribunal – one has to be set up before the other so that the one that is set up before can have a say in the setting up of the other. So, we got to get the Public Procurement Commission up and running and then the Tribunal will be set up,” he explained.  The issue of establishing the PPC predated the holding of the General and Regional Elections in May 2015, as the then Opposition had insisted that Cabinet should cease the practice of giving its ‘no objection’ to contracts for State projects and services, in favour of the PPC.last_img read more

Germans ‘looking into’ W Cup graft claims

first_img“We will examine the available documents. But we are still at the very beginning and have not yet launched an investigation. This could happen if we can confirm there is initial cause for suspicion.”Germany won the right to host the 2006 World Cup by beating South Africa with 12 votes to 11 after New Zealand’s Charles Dempsey abstained in the final ballot.On Friday, Der Spiegel weekly published a report claiming that the German Football Association (DFB) had a slush fund to buy votes.The magazine claims the DFB borrowed 10.3 million Swiss francs in 2000 from the now-deceased former CEO of German sportswear giant Adidas, Robert Louis-Dreyfus, in order to buy the votes of four Asian members of FIFA’s 24-strong executive committee.Spiegel claimed the DFB then transferred 6.7 million euros — the equivalent of the borrowed Swiss francs at the time — to a FIFA account in 2005 to repay Louis-Dreyfus.The DFB preempted Spiegel’s claims by issuing its own statement admitting they had made that last payment to FIFA but denying it had any connection to the 2006 World Cup.“There was no slush fund,” DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach insisted. “The World Cup was not bought.”Niersbach added that the internal investigation had not been completed but said: “I can definitively exclude that this payment was linked to the World Cup.”On Sunday, Franz Beckenbauer, who led Germany’s successful bid to host the 2006 World Cup, came out to deny the allegations.“I have not sent anyone money to acquire votes for the awarding of the 2006 World Cup to Germany,” said the 70-year-old football legend in a statement.“And I’m sure that no other member of the bidding committee did either.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Germans celebrate their World Cup victory last year.

Everton transfer blow! Top defensive target NOT interested in Toffees move

first_img1 Kalidou Koulibaly Kalidou Koulibaly’s agent has denied speculation his client could move to Everton this summer.The Napoli defender has been on Roberto Martinez’s radar as the Toffees look to add defensive reinforcements.Speculation surrounding the future of John Stones and the departures of experienced duo Sylvain Distin and Antolin Alcaraz have left Everton with only youngsters as back-up at the heart of their defence.However, Koulibaly, 24, is unlikely to fill that void for the Merseysiders in this transfer window, according to the Frenchman’s representative.“I don’t know anything about interest from Everton for him,” Bruno Satin told Tuttomercatoweb.“He hasn’t asked to leave, he’s played in these first few friendlies and is 100 per cent at the centre of Napoli’s project.“For a player of his age and value there will always be interest, but everything comes down to the club wanting to sell a player and the player wanting to leave.”He added: “In the case of Kalidou there is no such desire and the club also wants to keep him.”last_img read more
