Cayman Islands: MLAs back bill to tighten public procurement

A bill designed to remove political interference, create transparency, improve efficiency, get better value for money and generally tighten up the entire process around government procurement was backed by the parliament Monday, with no opposition, following its second reading. Government hopes that the legislation, which has been a long time coming and inspired by years of concern raised publicly and frequently by the Office of the Auditor General, will eliminate perceptions of corruption and, in the end, save government money.
