600,000 dinars ‘worth’ project said cancelled

KUWAIT CITY, Dec 5: The committee formed by Assistant Undersecretary for Planning and Administrative Development Affairs at the Ministry of Social Affairs Abdulaziz Sari canceled a project related to the mechanization of social welfare services in the ministry with an estimated cost of KD 600,000, reports Al- Rai and Al-Jarida dailies quoting sources.

According to the sources, the committee consists of technicians from the Computer Department and their task is to review all contracts related to mechanization work. After reviewing and studying clauses of the contract for the above mentioned project, the committee was surprised as the cost was high and does not commensurate the services it will provide.

This has prompted the ministry to ask both the Central Agency for Public Tenders (CAPT) and the Secretariat General for Planning to delete it from the development plan of the ministry, sources disclosed; confirming that the two institutions agreed on removing the project from the plan. Sources added the committee also succeeded in saving KD 36,000 from the project on the automation of services in the Cooperative Sector; and it also reduced the cost of automating the management of charitable associations’ services from KD 400,000 to KD 73,000.
