Client Query 160:- Hi, wanted to discuss that if a procurement agency enters in a contract to purchase I.T Equipment from a local supplier (which is partner of an international Company). Instead of the local supplier is it permissible for the international company (which was not directly involved in contract) to send invoices for maintenance charges of purchased equipment from local supplier? Can you please advice whether this is allowed in PPRA Rules? Thanks
