KINGSTON — Cabinet has approved a contract valued at $45.4 million for the upgrading of general facilities and the construction of a boundary wall at the Tivoli Gardens High School in Kingston.
Minister with responsibility for Information, Telecommunications and Special Projects, Hon. Daryl Vaz, made the disclosure at April 20 post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House.
He said that the work will be done under the Rehabilitation of Schools Programme in the Ministry of Education.
Meanwhile, the National Youth Service’s (NYS) capacity to develop a system for corporate outreach has been boosted with Cabinet’s approval of $35.05 million (US$409,900) to LDP Hall and Associates for consultancy services, plus $1.38 million for reimbursable expenses.
“The consultancy will conduct an assessment of the NYS’ present strategies for attracting corporate partners and identify and document best practices that will sustain these synergies on a continuous basis,” Mr. Vaz said.
The contracts were awarded on the recommendation of the National Contracts Commission and the Infrastructure Sub-committee
