The Parliamentary Commission is set to spend Shs1.178Bn on the supply, delivery, installation and commissioning of conference system for Committee Rooms.

The details are contained in a bid notice at Parliament that identified Mantra Technologies as the best evaluated bidder and likely contractor to undertake the works.

According to the bid notice, Mantra beat Technology Associates Ltd, JV Visual Engineering Services Ltd to the juicy contract, after the bidder failed to provide to Parliament evidence of past experience in undertaking work of similar magnitude, the companies also didn’t submit income tax clearance certificates and also failed to attach code of ethical conduct for providers.

Parliament currently conducts its committee business in 15 Committee rooms and it isn’t clear if the system will be installed in the various board rooms of top heads of the institution.

In another contract, Parliamentary Commission has named Thermocool Uganda Limited as the best evaluated bidder for the contract to supply an air conditioning system for the main data Centre at Parliament.

In a contract that is slated to cost taxpayers Shs553.73m, there are several bidders who also lost out on the contract like A&S Electronic Limited, Appliance World Limited, Diamond Stars Limited, Thermal Solutions Limited for failing to fulfill some conditions required in the bid notice.
