KUWAIT CITY, Oct 4: According to reliable sources, the State Audit Bureau sent a letter to the Public Authority for Housing Welfare (PAHW), expressing its rejection of three tenders for the supply, extension and maintenance of 132 KV ground cables for feeding eight major substations in the N6, N9 and N10 suburbs of the city of Mutlaa, reports Al-Qabas daily. It stated that, after reviewing the papers on the subject, it was still of the opinion to reject the tenders due to the incorrectness of excluding the bidder with the lowest prices despite the technical fulfillment of the bid, according to the books of the authority responsible for determining this, which is the Ministry of Electricity and Water. On the other hand, PAHW revealed that the total projects completed in six years was 50 diversified housing projects in the areas of infrastructure, roads, electricity, and asphalt.
In a report by PAHW regarding its completed projects from 2016 until the end of last year, PAHW revealed that the most prominent of these projects that were initially received are the project for building 640 apartments in the city of Jaber Al-Ahmad, the infrastructure and roads project for the cities of South Abdullah Al-Mubarak and Mutlaa, and the projects related to the extension of underground cables, road works and infrastructure networks in several housing cities, including Wafra, West Abdullah Al-Mubarak, and low-cost housing.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Public Works has postponed conducting tests to fill supervisory positions due to a technical defect. The tests were scheduled to be conducted today. The ministry said in a text message to the candidates that the date for tests has been postponed until further notice. However, informed sources told the daily that the postponement came in response to the intense anger sparked when the candidates were told last Wednesday that they should refer to books at the Kuwait University as a prelude to prepare for the test. The sources pointed out that many candidates informed the ministry officials that there was no sufficient time to prepare.
