Public Tenders Law - Kuwait

The National Assembly unanimously passed in the first reading the new public tenders law after its Financial Affairs Committee introduced a number of key amendments to the important bill. Under the law, technical committees must be formed for the purchase of arms at the army, police and national guards, an addition proposed by the Audit Bureau to regulate the purchase of arms and military equipment.

 

The provision entrusts the Council of Ministers to issue the necessary decisions to form such committees and will determine the mechanism of their operations. Other amendments to the law obliges the Central Tenders Committee (CTC), which awards state projects worth tens of billions of dinars, to accept the decision of the petitions committee whose opinions currently are consultative. MPs debated whether the petitions committee, which study challenges by contractors who lose tenders, should be under the Council of Ministers or remain with the CTC.
