Concern over China Harbour contracts in Jamaica

| 28/06/2011

(Go-Jamaica): The Office of the Contractor General (OCG) has reiterated its concern about the contract awarded to China Harbour Engineering Company Limited as the main contractor involved in the Jamaica Development Infrastructure Programme (JDIP). Contractor General Greg Christie has been investigating the US$400 million programme after several concerns were raised about aspects of the project. In a release issued this morning, Christie raised concern that the Government awarded the major road works rehabilitation contract to a single contracting entity, without the contract being put to tender.

Christie said the matter is further compounded by the fact that China Harbour was allowed to offer subcontracts to other companies, without the usual checks and balances, to ensure transparency in the process.
