CEC tells agencies to spill tender beans


New Delhi The Central Information Commission (CIC) has taken various civic agencies to task for maintaining undue secrecy with regard to information on issuance of tenders. Not content with asking the NDMC, MCD, PWD and the Delhi Government to give out information on just Commonwealth Games-related tenders, the CIC has now directed them to reveal the details of all such deals they have made in the last five years. In a letter to the agencies on August 10, the CIC asked them to make the information public on its website. Stating that a lot of information on the agency is not available on the public domain, as stipulated under Section IV of the RTI Act, it said that such an action would not only effect more “transparency” in its dealings but also “reduce the load of RTI applications”.


Specifically highlighted in the letter was a request that penalties imposed on companies, which have not been able to complete work, be made public.


In the letter sent to the NDMC, the CIC has asked it to disclose information on the nature of work given, date of tendering, estimated value of tender, number of tenders received for a particular project, details of the entities that had applied for the tender, the chosen contractor, rate of awarding work and estimated “life-span” of the completed work.


The agencies have been asked to furnish all the information required by September 15. On August 8, the CIC had asked the agencies concerned to reveal information on tendering processes involving Commonwealth Games projects.
