FCAN objects to Public Procurement Regulations
Kathmandu, May 20: Federation of Contractors' Associations of Nepal (FCAN) has objected to some points of Public Procurement Regulations (Sixth Amendment)-2075, recently issued by the government.
The FCAN objected to some clauses of the Regulation, saying it would displace domestic entrepreneurs as it has given priority to foreign entrepreneurs.
A press release issued by FCAN General Secretary, Roshan Dahal, reads that the government lost the opportunity of formulating construction-friendly acts for it issued the Regulations against the suggestions of the FCAN and bodies concerned.
The FCAN determined that the national goal, 'Prosperous Nepal, Happy Nepali', could not be materialized due to certain provisions of the Regulations.
Dahal said that the FCAN would be compelled to launch agitation in protest of some points of the Regulations brought without holding extensive discussion with bodies concerned.
