“Contractors get out there and do your preparatory work before submitting bids, because at the end of the day we hold you to your financial submission and if the work stops, your past performance or track record will be taken into account in future bid evaluations”.
These were the words to contractors from Minister of Water, Land, Environment & Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill when he broke ground for the Mason River / Kellits / Sandy River Water Supply System in August, 2013.
