NEW PENALTY FOR PUBLIC PROCUREMENT OFFENDORS

Post  freddy.mbeyella on Fri Sep 20, 2013 9:46 pm

RSM,
Indeed. Severe penalties are likely to deter crime but, in long run they will also turn be less punitive. Even the previous penalties when were initially introduced were found to be quite shocking, over passage of time they are not scaring. To me the solution is not only on imposing heavy penalties and introducing stringent procedures; we need to find the root cause of the problems and find lasting solution. I understand this is a big challenge which requires a lot effort in changing mindset of the society in general.

I believe the solution to this problem is within us and one way is through discussions. However, it appears willingness to debate on the subject is not forthcoming. This can be attested by one of my postings in Kiswahili titled” NANI ALIKUFUNDISHA”

(2) A person who -
(a) without reasonable excuse fails or refuses to give information, produce any document, records or reports required under section 18 or under the notice issued in accordance with subsection (3) of section 92;

commits an offence and on conviction is liable to a fine not exceeding ten million shillings or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding three years or to both.

(3) Where a procuring entity consistently contravenes this Act, it shall, on the direction of the Authority, have its procurement function transferred to the Agency until the Authority is satisfied that the causes of the contravention have been rectified.
