Client Query 122:- Hi, wanted to confirm that if a firm is black listed by any “Procuring Agency”, then can this firm be allowed to participate in the tenders of other procuring agencies? Thanks

Answer:-  Thank you for writing to us! As per your query,in terms of Rule 19 of the Public Procurement Rules, 2004 a procuring agency can permanently or temporarily bar the suppliers or contractors from participating in their respective procurement proceedings in the light of clear mechanism and manner specified in the bidding documents. This Rule does not restrict such suppliers or contractors from participating in the procurement proceedings of other procuring agencies. Hope this helps!
