Stop work in Oro’s project lifted

The stopwork to the project in Popondetta, Northern Province has been lifted.

This happened after the contractor, PDC met with Governor Garry Juffa to resolve issues surrounding the concerns about quality and scope of work.

Juffa in a statement said the company has willingly insisted to ensure that all requirements are met and that they will certainly take on board the concerns of the Provincial Government to ensure a quality project is delivered.

“It has been resolved also that the Works Building Inspector shall lead the inspection team periodically and continue to monitor progress and report accordingly.”

PDC were selected by the Oro PSTB and all lawful requirements met as per proper procurement laws.

“All our projects have been procured through this process. I have urged all Open Members to also use this process as it is the lawful process.”

Juffa yesterday released a media statement insisting on a stop work on one of the projects after inspecting the project and finding flaws that raise questions of credibility.

He told Loop PNG via email that he has demanded the Building Board to conduct a thorough inspection to the project and to ensure all requirements were complied with in the use of materials and scope.

However, the project has now been lifted.
