New GPC calls on Auditor General to carry out value-for-money audit
- of prequalification process
THE New Guyana Pharmaceutical Corporation (NGPC) Inc has called on the Auditor General’s Office to carry out a value-for-money audit to review the prequalification process that was conducted in 2010, beginning with the advertisement for expressions of interest and going on to the evaluation and subsequent approval of submissions for prequalification to supply pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).
The company, in a statement yesterday, said this call is designed to “address the many malicious and vindictive” media publications carried in the Kaieteur News within the past month in relation to the GPHC procuring pharmaceutical and medical supplies from the company.
The New GPC said it is public knowledge that the company had been among certain other companies which had successfully responded to an advertisement published on the government’s website on October 21, 2010 for prequalification to supply pharmaceuticals and medical supplies to the GPHC.
The company said that the prequalification process had been open, and the results had been widely publicised. It is therefore calling on the AG to carry out the audit to determine if GPHC receives value for money based on the criteria and other established benchmarks as set out in the prequalification process.
As previously stated, the company said this move is intended to set the record straight, and to let the general public be aware of the facts.
The company describes itself as an internationally recognised pharmaceutical manufacturing company that continues to provide Guyana with quality health care products at very competitive prices; and it will therefore not sit quietly by and allow the destructive forces to work in this nation to undermine the company’s continued drive to provide excellent service to the people of Guyana and the international market.
The company has said it is resolved to pursue all available legal avenues to put a stop to these malicious attacks, not only against its principals, but against its workers as well.
