Government recently blacklisted 32 companies from conducting businesses over forged documents.
Their suspensions follows recommendations from both the local and central government over faked documents on different bids, especially in Ministry of Works.
According to Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Asset Authority (PPDA) acting Executive Director Benson Turamya, the blacklisted companies are suspended for a period between two to three years. Government entities can only deal with them in respect to their existing contracts placed prior to the suspension.
It is noted that forging documents among companies dealing with both local and central government has become now a common vice.
In 2016, 28 companies were suspended while 80 companies were banned in 2017 by PPDA for forging tax clearance and inappropriate presentation of procurement facts, in 2018 over 31 companies were also suspended over the same issue.
