KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The National Procurement Committee (NPC) has approved 50 contracts worth five billion afghanis, the Presidential Palace said on Sunday.

The contracts approved are for establishing a power sub-station in Alwan desert of Pul-i-Khumri, a water supply scheme in Charikarinfo-icon, Parwan’s capital, road construction for Qala-i-Najar square of Kabul, maintenance of police headquarters’ buildings and fuel for the Ministry of defence.

They also include the construction of a 1000-bed hospital for drug addicts and accommodation facilities besides food expenses for admitted individuals, a statement from the president’s office said.

President Ashraf Ghani, who presided over the NPC meeting, directed the ministries of water and energy, finance, economy and the national procurement authority to find proper ways how to accelerate work on dams projects which had previously faced problems.

The president also insisted on the use of domestic products during implementation of the contracts, saying amendment to the procurement law and procedures was not acceptable in the contracts of the defence and interior ministries and some other entities.

“Ministries and related entities should take urgent steps to legitimise the procurement system on central and provincial level,” the president said.
