Bahamas Hot Mix Seeks Millions Of Dollars In Compensation For Delays By The Ministry

15

Bahamas Hot Mix (BHM) is seeking millions of dollars in compensation because of claimed delays and changes in the plans by the Ministry.

The BHM work on the two major highways, to wit: Friars Hill Road, and Sir George Walter Highway.

The matter was discussed in a cabinet meeting on Wednesday October 23, 2019.

Chief of staff, Lionel Hurst, says the Government was assured that the claim is far from accurate. The Ministry of Works has made its own claims against the firm.

According to Hurst, the Cabinet also discussed its policy regarding contracts of $100,000 or more. Contracts exceeding EC$100,000 must first come to Cabinet before being dispatched to the Tenders Board.

Those who enter into contractual arrangements with any Ministry without taking these necessary steps are put on warning that those contracts will be considered void ab initio (from the very beginning) and will not be honoured.

  1. What can go so…the company you hire a sue you…help me Lord. Mr. Minister look like crappoo smoke your pipe. You should have stayed in teaching…my former teacher at Sunnyside School.

  2. Is it true that our neighbors in Dominica got the same funding for roads and after all that they have suffered from hurricanes their roads are just about done and in much better condition that ours. We are 170 sq. Miles geographically and Dominica is about 300 square miles.

    I just want to see something go right regardless of which policital party is in power.

  3. Lord have mercy……why are governments having so much irregularities when it come to projects? Do any of these project managers receive PMP certification from PMI? Maybe UWI (five islands) should offer courses in project management and hopefully that will minimize government institutions from budget overruns, which is usually caused by lack of planning, resources, scheduling, execution, monitoring, RISKS (critical thinking path). Very few engineers are good project managers without taking this course and receiving certification.

    • I am not sure the lack of qualifications is the problem. Maybe one of them but it is the attitude of every deal is a steal that is a major issue

      • Notes From A Native Son Of the Rock! The Lack of Technical Capacity resident on the Rock is definitely a Problem in Antigua and Barbuda! Who is the PM and others in authority in the PMU! Garats! This is a CDB and UK Funded Project! Don’t go chasing waterfalls!

        Where is A&B’s Road Building Capacity – Engineering or Production! BHM has exposed this deficiency for all to see! If you missed it with Andrade Gutierrez, research who on the Rock is the most knowledgeable from his and the Rose’s courtroom appearances in Miami to complete the picture! One Day you will learn why BHM will use the Court System for Compensation! There are major issues which cannot be put under the Rock since they have not been excavated by the wiseacres!

  5. Gaston Brown has problems managing things. He needs help. He’s actually crying out for help . Sadly his supporters are not helping him. Instead they are telling him he’s doing great. He’s a world boss. Poor him, poor them, poor us, poor Antigua.
