Lawyer signing legal documents

Client Query 138:- Hi, wanted to ask that if a firm/company or any other supplier is blacklisted by a government department/organization permanently or temporarily , then what shall be the criteria for other govt. owned organization/departments, are they not supposed to do business with blacklisted supplier or this blacklisting is limited to that specific government organization/departments that blacklists?

Secondly also wanted to ask that if PPRA or Punjab PPRA blacklists a supplier then can Federal government organizations/Departments do business with firms blacklisted by SPPRA or Punjab PPRA?

Your early response in this matter will be highly appreciated!

Answer:- Thank you very much for writing to us! As per your query, the answer to it can be found according to PPRA Rules. In terms of Rule 19 of Public Procurement Rules, 2004 a procuring agency can permanently or temporarily bar from participation in its respective procurement proceedings, the suppliers and contractors who either consistently failed to provide satisfactory performances or found to be indulging in corrupt or fraudulent practices. Other procuring agencies are required to categorically specify in the bidding documents whether or not they allow blacklisted contractors or suppliers to participate in their procurement proceedings. Hope this helps answering your query!
