Section 41 of the Public Procurement and Asset Disposal Act mandates the Authority to debar suppliers/ contractors from participating in procurement and asset disposal proceedings on various grounds. During this financial year, the Authority developed a draft debarment manual to guide the processing of debarment cases. Five (5) debarment cases were not progressed due to the absence of Regulatory Board. The OGP NAP III has a similar commitment and the latest information on the progress of this is cluster meeting notes which is an internal document for now.
