SIERRA LEONE ROAD SAFETY AUTHORITY ĖSLRSA
PRESS STATEMENT

ON MISLEADING INFORMATION BEING CIRCULATED BY MOHAMED CONTEH TRADING AS ALUMED

In August 2014, the Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority-SLRSA issued out an advert for construction of an ultra-modern office at our Africanus Road Branch in Kissy Freetown. The procurement unit used the International Competitive Bidding Method.

Nine persons/companies submitted bids including Mohamed Conteh trading as ALUMED.

The Evaluation of Bids commenced and the Evaluation Committee recommended ALUMED of Waterloo Street. A letter of notification was sent to ALUMED in which the Authority spelt out clearly six conditions to be fulfilled before a contract can be assigned or awarded.

ALUMED submitted some of the document requested and asked for additional time to submit the performance and advance payment bonds which are very crucial in the procurement process.

The Procurement committee granted his request. However, in spite of the opportunity given him, he was not able to submit these very important documents. The Authority expressed serious concern to ALUMED over failure to complete his documentation.

Following this delay, the Authority did some investigations and also discovered that there was no assessment and payment of tax by ALUMED since 2014 to date, some key criteria in any procurement process.

However, even though NRA records indicate that ALUMED has not made any tax payment since 2014 yet he produced updated tax clearance a clear indication of forgery.

In view of the above, the National Public Procurement Authority (NPPA) was informed about the fake NRA information submitted by ALUMED and the non submission of advance payment as requested. The NPPA reviewed relevant documents and correspondences and gave no objection on the termination of the notification of the award letter. On the 10th June 2015, the notification of award letter issued was terminated and the evaluation committee report was revisited.

After all these statutory processes, Mohamed Conteh of ALUMED commenced a campaign of calumny against the Executive Director of SLRSA using both the traditional and Social media spreading libelous information against the Executive Director of SLRSA.

Although Dr. Sarah Bundu has every right to take up legal actions against this campaign of calumny, her busy schedule will not allow her to do so.

The Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority is putting out this information for the Public to know the truth and to see how Mr. Conteh, by his unscrupulous activities, contributed in delaying a very important project which is part of Government's Performance Tracking Table (PTT) and His Excellency's Agenda for Prosperity.

Above all, it has been further discovered that Mr. Mohamed Conteh (ALUMED) has not got what it takes to undertake such a premier contract base on his character and conduct.
