Jugnauth will have the final say on the appointment

PM Pravind Jugnauth will reportedly review the organizational structure of the Central Procurement Board soon in order to replace the current Chief Executive, Kreetykant Dosieah, after the latter’s arrest earlier this week by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

Dosieah is accused of allocating a contract for the setting up of a power plant to the Burmeister and Wain Scandinavian Contractors (BWSC) against financial gains. The ICAC reportedly suspects Dosieah to have cashed Rs 2 million from contracting firm PADCO, which represented BWSC in Mauritius.

Media reports have it that the list of probable candidates as next CEO is being put up by the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development – which will eventually be approved.

The CPB is the main entity which selects bids for most major projects of the government and offered several contracts to companies amounting to Rs 3.7 billion for financial 2019/2020.
