KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The National Procurement Committee (NPC) on Sunday evaluated six different governmental contracts, approving five of them.

Eng. Murtaza Noori, NPC policy director, told journalists in Kabul five of the approved contracts were related to civil aviation, printing books, modernization of customs and two contracts of Ministry of Defence.

Fuel contract of the Milli Bus Company was postponed for next sessions due to legal and technical issues.

All the contracts, he added, were worth 6.7 billion afghanis and were evaluated in the 13th NPC meeting headed by second vice-president Mohammad Sarwar Danish and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Abdullah Abdullah.

He added in the airspace control alone $236 million was saved as compared to previous contracts. He said the previous contract was worth $283 million while the new contract was more than $47 million.

Customs modernization contract with domestic companies and two projects of providing medicines to defence ministry had been extended for another six months.

The NPC, headed by President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani himself, has so far approved more than 146 major governmental contracts.

According to NPC more than 6.9 billion afghanis have been saved in these contracts.
