Jamaica: Performance Criteria for Contractors to Be Introduced in Public Procurement Process

27 Aug 19: Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, says he has mandated the new procurement authority to develop a policy outline to introduce performance management contracting in the procurement process. He said the introduction of this accountability mechanism will serve to improve how contractors work. “We know of several contractors who have work they don’t finish; they don’t complete it on time, but yet they come back into the process. So there must be a way within the procurement process in which the past performances of contractors feature in the ability to get future work,” he said.
