– in wake of more contract splittingThe forensic audit report into the Cheddi Jagan International Airport Corporation (CJIAC) hasCJIA CEO Ramesh Ghirrecommended that management review a number of things, including the current system of the commercial and administration managers being the evaluators of tenders, due to lack of transparency.The audit was done by Goorwantie Kaladeen, an accredited member of International Institute of Certified Forensic Investigation Professionals (IICFIP). It highlighted several cases whereby evaluators recommended that contracts be extended and this was done, but contract splitting resulted.Intimating that CJIA administrators are either unfamiliar with the Procurement Act of 2003 or may be ignoring it, the auditor noted that at least two contracts were awarded by Cabinet in 2009 and 2010 for one year only.
