Government has waived the tender process to award a $108,000 contract to Wendell Gaskin to provide consultancy services to the Ministry of Finance.
Cabinet decided to waive tender for this contract during its March 17 meeting.
Along with the support Gaskin will be providing to the ministry, he is also required to assist government with its “constitutional obligation to have current annual audited financial statements”.
A post-Cabinet statement published on Thursday further said Gaskin’s contract is also “to provide a comprehensive analysis of government’s expenditure and to make recommendations on how to bring greater efficiency in the day-to-day operations”.
He is required to provide these services for 12 months.
