Govt to boost local contractors with road construction jobs

Govt to boost local contractors with road construction jobs

The Deputy Minister for Works, Dr Harrison Mwakyembe, told the National Assembly here over the weekend that local engineers who have formed joint ventures would also be given preference.

Dr Mwakyembe said this when responding on recommendations by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Infrastructure led by Mr Peter Serukamba (Kigoma Urban - CCM).The committee had proposed that deliberate efforts be made to empower local engineers through giving them construction contracts.

“We have already awarded many tenders to local contractors who are in joint ventures and are registered with the Contractors Registration Board (CRB,” Dr Mwakyembe said.He noted that Mbutu bridge in Igunga in Tabora Region was under construction and that the work was being undertaken by a group of 13 local engineers who are operating in a joint venture.

Dr Mwakyembe, however, warned local contractors against cheating, saying some engineers had a tendency of presenting fake CVs so as to win tenders.
