- The Parliamentary Service Board has justified its decision to award a contract for the architectural design of the proposed new complex to UK-based Sir David Adjaye and Associates
- The Board says it rewarded the contract to David Adjaye on merit; they say they followed the required process leading to the choice of the eventual winner
- The PSB explanation comes on the back of complaints by architects in that, the NPP government has awarded all the top and lucrative contracts to Sir David Adjaye
The Parliamentary Service Board (PSB) says it followed due process in awarding the contract for the architectural design of the proposed new complex to David Adjaye and Associates.
The Board said claims that government side-lining local contractors are not necessarily accurate.
The PSB was responding to a series of complaints by some local architects who feel the government is favouring David Adjaye and Associates when it comes to the awarding of contracts.
Design Associates Development Consortium wrote to President Akufo-Addo on the matter.
The company held that David Adjaye and Associates, owned by UK-based architect, David Adjaye, is not licensed to operate in Ghana.
The coordinator of Design Associates Development Consortium, Dr, Ekow Sam, added that Adjaye’s company is neither registered under the Architects Decree, 1968 (NRCD357) nor with the Ghana Institute of Architects.
Responding to these claims, the PSB said it did due diligence before awarding contracts to David Adjaye and Associates.
