$69M NIS reconstruction covered host of other services provided by contractor which Kaieteur News didn't report

NIS Corriverton Office

Chairman of N.I.S Board of Directors, Dr Roger Luncheon: Ordinarily, I would have expected Kaieteur News, in support of its headlines on Monday, August 29, captioned “$69M National Insurance Scheme building”, to provide the basis for their comparison with the $9M cost of three other buildings they mentioned. For the record, the National Insurance Scheme awarded a tender through a public tendering process for the construction of the Corriverton Local Office building.
National Insurance Scheme is prepared to provide and have Kaieteur News publish the bid documents, bills of quantities for the Corriverton Local Office tender, and expects the same for the three buildings Kaieteur News mentioned.
For the record, the reconstruction (of the Corriverton building) included office space for twenty members of staff, offering the identical range of service that is currently provided at Headquarters, comprehensive site development, clean power, back-up power, grid connection and facilities for security, public convenience and seating.
