The letter also stressed the importance of continuous coordination with the Legal Affairs Department, and preparation of the necessary reports in order to make sure the procedures taken are legal. It included directives for enhancing the follow-up of the work of relevant committees tasked to handover the equipment and machines.
The letter also had directives to urge the relevant departments to expedite handing over the storage areas to the contracting companies and issuing the required licenses.

The letter included directives for speeding up the completion of preparing the special conditions and technical specifications required for direct contracting by the General Cleanliness Committee no later than Sept 1, so that these conditions can be presented to the concerned authorities for review and the necessary procedures can be completed as an alternative solution in case of any default.
