Contractor General

While the Act establishing the office of the Contractor General was passed in 1983, the first Contractor General was not appointed until November 1986. The main function of the Contractor General is to monitor and investigate, on behalf of Parliament, matters concerning the award of Government contracts.
The Contractor General also monitors the award and implementation of licences and permits. These licences are given to operators of gas (petrol) stations, stone quarries, and other establishments. He is also responsible for ensuring that licences are used in accordance with the terms and conditions under which they are granted.
