Marshall: Tendering process could go regional

Some of Government’s procurement of goods and services could be tendered regionally.

So said Attorney General Dale Marshall on Thursday as he indicated that Government was currently examining both public and regional procurement legislation.

Marshall, who was speaking at a press conference at Government Headquarters, told the media when asked about transparency in government’s tendering process that important decisions are to be made about it.

“Government is going to have to make a long decision about how we spend our money,” he said. “We have less of it now than we did before and therefore getting the best value for our dollar will take on importance like no other time in our history.”

He stated that wherever possible there would be a tender process and it could involve regional partners.

“Barbados has to come to the place physically where sometimes getting the best service might be not getting it in Barbados because within the context of the CSME [Caribbean Single Market & Economy] there is a drive within Caricom that we should make certain kinds of procurement opportunities outside of Barbados; they will also be reciprocally available to us.” (MB)
