Government to disclose full details on tender projects

According to Yangon Region Planning and Finance Minister Myint Thaung, the details of future tender projects between the government and private companies will be fully disclosed to the public.

He said this in response to a question posed by Yangon Region MP Aung Naing Htun of Thanlyin Constituency on whether projects being implemented by “departments under the ministries, corporations and the municipality” have any plans to let the public know if there are discrepancies in their budget spending or the quality of their projects.

Minister Myint Thaung said: “The way it’s being done currently is that exact details are submitted to the parliament.”

“Projects such as roads, bridges, buildings and others are being implemented through the tender system by local groups. They utilize the open tender system, and in the tender call, the exact specifications such as the quality and measurement are shown on the tender forms. If, for example, a company wins a tender for road construction, it will have to display a signboard to show the length, width, volume, quality, warranty as well as costs for all to see. If it is a project solely undertaken by the government’s departments, citizens living in townships where the project is going on will be notified via signboards or otherwise on the details of the project,” said Myint Thaung.
