Housing Development Corpo-
ration (HDC) managing director
Jearlean John has defended the
agency s hiring practices,
describing them as fair, thorough
and above board.
She was responding to claims
by head of the Contractors Asso-
ciation, Mikey Joseph, that lucra-
tive contracts were being given to
certain contractors while small
contractors were being sidelined.
John said contractors interested
in tendering for the design and
construction projects must be
prequalified by the HDC.
Contracts are evaluated on the
basis of organisational structure,
relevant qualifications, availability
of plant and equipment and
financial capability, she said.
She said the evaluation process
included site visits to the offices
and projects of contractors "to
verify information provided by
To ensure standards are met,
said John, the HDC has been
holding annual Working with the
HDC seminars to make contrac-
tors aware of the agency s expec-
tations and high standards.
John denied that small contrac-
tors were being sidelined. She said
there were 297 small contractors
working at the HDC, with 25 of
them involved in an infill pro-
gramme and 163 involved in
maintenance, renovations and
building trades works. There are
also 109 micro to small monthly
"This figure does not include
construction consultants and
technicians such as engineers,
architects, quantity surveyors,
planners, land surveyors, etc who
are also engaged by the HDC on
several projects," John said.
The infill programme is aimed
at developing small contractors
"This HDC initiative is not only
limited to construction activities,
but encourages the small contrac-
tor to understand the different
core disciplines required within a

on are HSE, contract manage-
ment, quantity surveying, finan-
cial management, construction
management and quality control.

ect management activities. Tech-
nical activities includes excavation
and foundation preparation, form-
work and steel fabrication, con-
crete preparation and placement,

She said contractors interested
in tendering for design and/or
construction of housing projects
must be prequalified by the HDC
and there was no preferential
treatment for special contractors.
She said: "The HDC by way of
public notice in daily newspapers
invites small, medium and large
contractors to prequalify for the
housing programme for the adver-
Small contracts range from $25
million to $75 million, medium
contracts from $75 million to $200
million and large contracts are
$200 million and over.
"The prequalification process
aims at ensuring as far as possible
that suitably experienced and
qualified contractors who are
invited to tender for HDC s hous-
ing projects deliver the best value
for money, technical competence,
sound work ethic, delivery as per
work schedule, comprehensive
reporting and flexibility and
responsiveness to change," John
Jearlean: HDC's hiring
practices above board
