Ministry of Transport Faces Questions Over Controversial Payment to The Sign Factory
As if there were not enough fires for the Government to be putting out, there is another report tonight that requires some answers, particularly, from the Ministry of Transport. A letter, purportedly sent by Chief Executive Officer, Adele Catzim, is now questioning a payment of over one hundred and eight thousand dollars made out to a relatively new company called, The Sign Factory. The CEO is questioning the procurement procedures used in giving the contract for license plates, asking if they are in accordance with the procurement guidelines. Reports in other media outlets are saying that the contract was issued to a relative of a government minister, but we could not confirm that allegation. We have reached out to the Minister of Transport, Rodwell Williams, but he says he will give a comment when he returns in-country.
