President Dr Mohamed Muizzu has officially terminated the previous government’s practice, allowing private individuals to submit proposals for government projects without a competitive bidding process. The decision to revoke this policy was published in the gazette yesterday.
President Muizzu stated that one of the reasons for abolishing the policy is to ensure maximum openness in the bidding process for government projects. The move is aimed at promoting transparency and fairness in the procurement procedures.

The policy being revoked was introduced during President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih’s administration to provide opportunities for private bidders in projects that were not previously subjected to a bidding process. The recent decision marks a change in the government’s approach to project procurement, emphasizing the importance of an open and competitive process.
