Purchases for engineering projects:

Priority to local contractors, manufacturers

Prof Ashu Marasinghe

The State Engineering Corporation (SEC) has given priority to local manufacturers and contractors when doing purchases for engineering projects following the recently granted Cabinet approval.

SEC Chairman Professor Ashu Marasinghe told Daily News Business that tenders have been called within a short period of time and seven applications are under evaluation at present. Two local companies has been offered contracts so far. Awareness among local companies have been created about this process to receive more applications.

Professor Marasinghe at a media briefing last month said that from this year 7.5 percent priority will be given to local job contractors in projects funded by the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank and 10 percent priority to local job contractors in the projects funded by the Sri Lankan Government.

He assured fifteen percent priority for purchases in projects funded by the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank to locally manufactured goods and 20 percent priority to locally made goods for the purchases in the locally funded projects.

It was expected that utilizing local products for the development process in the country would satisfy many aspects in the development field and will lead to enhance the local raw material market generating job opportunities. The Chairman said that this is a very difficult task but the SEC has now given a start to do it despite many challenges.

The SEC has identified suitable parameters to offer these tenders through Mawbima Lanka Foundation under “Ganna Ape De”.
