KSA penalises 451 late projects

Penalised contractors had failed to meet the deadlines set for completing the educational projects

Contractors implementing more than 451 projects on behalf of the Saudi Ministry of Education have been penalised for failing to meet the deadlines set for completing the projects over the past three years.

Dr Hamad Bin Muhammad Aal Alsheikh, Deputy Minister of Education has said problems relating to 218 educational projects had been successfully resolved by the ministry, with new contractors in the process of handing over these projects to the ministry according to a set timetable.

The ministry also awarded new tenders for 233 faltering projects and took action against 397 contractors for delaying projects, said Alsheikh.

He blamed the contractors of these faltering projects for being directly responsible for stalling the ministry’s plan to replace rundown school buildings in various regions with new and modern ones, saying the ministry will not hesitate to strictly enforce the penalties stipulated in the contracts against negligent contractors.
