Sector Committees were established to assist the National Contracts Commission (NCC) in evaluating recommendations for the award of government contracts in a timely manner. Sector Committees are extensions or sub-sets of the NCC. Each Sector Committee has public sector agencies which are assigned to it. The agencies are required to submit, to the Sector Committees, their recommendations for the award of contracts which are valued at $15,000,000.00 or above.

Responsibilities of the sector committee

  • To satisfy itself that all prescribed tender procedures have been observed by the agencies which are assigned to it;
  • To convene meetings as necessary to receive and review the tender reports which are submitted by the Public Sector Agencies;
  • To make recommendations for the award of public sector contracts and, immediately thereafter, submit to the NCC, in the prescribed form, of its decisions;
  • To record official minutes and to keep permanent records of all of its proceedings.

Membership of sector committees

The membership of each sector committee is comprised of a minimum of three persons from the host agency, inclusive of the Chairman and one representative of the NCC. The NCC representative is a member of the staff of the TSD of the Office of the Contractor General (OCG). The Committee usually includes members who are drawn from the following disciplines and/or professions:
