PSC, firm in legal tussle over Sh3b lost tender
By Dominic Omondi | June 15th 2020
A real estate consultant is embroiled in a legal tussle with the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) over the proposed Sh3 billion Centre for Parliamentary Studies and Training set to be built in Karen.
Nairobi-based Arprim Consultant successfully sought orders against the cancellation of the tender process in which it had emerged as a finalist for the provision of consultancy services for preparation of a master plan, preliminary and detailed design and construction supervision of the proposed centre.
PSC terminated the tender process after declaring it non-responsive.
In a decision made on May 21, the Public Procurement Administrative Review Board set aside PSC’s notification of termination dated April 30 and ordered that it completes the procurement process to its logical conclusion, including issuance of letters of notification of the outcome within 14 days from the date of the decision.
The High Court however on June 2 allowed the PSC to challenge the board’s decision to allow the request for review.
