The Office of the Contractor General (OCG) headed by Greg Christie has submitted yet again another report to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) and the Police Commissioner to take action.
The Contractor General, who began the investigation in January, were probing allegations of corruption and irregularity in relation to certain Government of Jamaica bridge building contracts issued to the British firm Mabey and Johnson Limited.
The Contractor General is an independent, anti-corruption Commission of Parliament. It was established by the Contractor General Act in 1986.
It is the State’s leading institution in the quest to ensure that the public sector procurement process delivers value to the tax-payer, is merit based, is free from corruption, impropriety and irregularity and is transparent, impartial, competitive, fair, efficient and effective.
The primary functions of the Contractor General are the monitoring and investigation of the award of Government contracts, licenses and permits.
