Within the online national procurement portal, there is a list of debarred companies. This means that these bidders and contractors have violated the Procurement Law, and won’t be allowed to bid for public projects for duration of not less than 2 year and not more than 5 years.

No progress since 2017. National Procurement Authority has established a central repository of all those companies who have been debarred in the past but have completed their debarment period, or are currently under debarment sanctions and cannot participate in public procurement, or are under debarment process right now but the final decision is yet to be made. The data about such companies are fully open and it can be accessed through NPA website. However, the final conviction of the debarred companies by AGO has not been published.
