Contractors who have been awarded County tenders have been urged to adhere to the stipulated timeframes to avert cases of delays in completion of projects.

While speaking on Monday during a meeting with Contractors at the County Department of Health and Sanitation, the Chief Officer for Medical Services Dr. Paul Lagat noted that a number of contractors exceed the given timelines hence pulling back the county in terms of development.

The Chief Officer assured contractors that the County Government is committed to pay them on time upon completion of their work.

Dr. Lagat said that the slow pace which some contractors use executing the projects contributes to rollover and questionable service delivery which result to accusations from residents.

“Dont do any project without any documentation and also you must have a project work plan,” he advised.

On her part the Chief Officer in charge of Preventive and Promotive Services Sally Kemboi added that they have awarded tenders to various contractors and they will start work as from next week as site-handing over is expected to commence this week.

She noted that the department of health and sanitation has put measures in place to ensure that there is timely payment.

The Director of Administration, Planning, Finance and Operations Dr. Philemon Bureti however urged the contractors to finish their work on time as stipulated in their contracts saying that shoddy work will not be entertained, he said that contractors should work within the timeline and do a good job.

The contractors thanked the county government for awarding them tenders and promised to do their best.

Over 70 health projects ranging from construction of new health facilities, renovations, expansion works and construction of incinerators are expected to be complete within this financial year giving a boost to the health sector in Nandi.

Also present at the meeting were Engineers, Deputy Director of Monitoring and Evaluation Mathew Rotich, Economics Officer Vincent Lagat, Tinderet Ward Sub County Administrator Barnabas Tallam and his Aldai counterpart Charles Too, several Ward Administrators, procurement officers among other health officials.
