Government has warned that contractors failing to meet contractual targets risk being blacklisted from being given further contracts.

Cabinet Office Permanent Secretary for special duties, Bert Mushala said government will not tolerate contractors who are failing to perform to contractual specifications.

Speaking after inspecting some government developmental projects in Solwezi, Mr Mushala said contractors who do not meet targets must have their contracts terminated and subsequently blacklisted.

He implored contractors to do their best when given contracts so that they build their names and be considered for further contracts.

Mr Mushala has also urged beneficiary line ministries and other stakeholders to engage the contractors to ensure that proper work is done during execution of contracts.

He said if contractors are not monitored regularly some contractors may take a laissez-faire attitude that in turn affects the standard of the works.

He said government has commenced a number of projects to benefit communities but there is need for coordinated efforts from all stakeholders to ensure that the infrastructure is opened for use to decongest the existing ones.

Mr Mushala is in North-western province inspecting various on-goinggovernment developmental projects to get an on the spot progression status.

  1. Iam tired of hearing of these “warnings” from government. Why don’t they just take action instead of barking like toothless bulldogs?

  2. How about we also start paying contractors on time for a change to ensure speedy delivery of projects? One who goes to equity goes with clean hands the saying goes. You cannot on the one hand not pay promptly for work done yet on the other hand still expect the contractor to properly execute his contractual obligation. Cash is the life blood of any projet

  3. How many times are you going to warn them? Is that what is in the contract that if they fail to deliver, they shall be warned?
