After a rigorous assessment of bids forwarded by 12 companies, of which 11 were international, and 1 local, SUBAH Info- Solutions Ghana Limited, won from NATCOM, the International Gateway Monitoring System (GWMS) contract.

 

The aforementioned Ghanaian-based company is in charge of themonitoring of International Gateway System in both Ghana (Accra) and Guinea (Conakry).

 

Chairman of NATCOM, Momoh Konteh

 

Presenting the report of the Evaluation Committee to pressmen on Thursday 22nd September 2016, the Deputy Director General of NATCOM, Victor Findley stated that SUBAH’s bid was “the most responsive” in the list of bidders.

 

The Director General of NATCOM, Senesie Kallon intimated that he was extremely happy with the process used in recruiting SUBAH to monitor Sierra Leone’s International Gateway System.

 

“SUBAH is expected to effectively monitor quality of service in real time on international voice and data traffic between Sierra Leone and overseas destinations,” Mr. Kallon disclosed.

 

Similarly, the Chairman of NATCOM, Momoh Konteh told pressmen that the evaluation process was not influenced by anyone,”not even the President”.

 

“President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma never attempted to even discuss the evaluation process with me…Infact, he always emphasized that the assessment process must be transparent and credible.”

 

He furthered that the management of NATCOM is working very hard with SUBAH, “and very soon, we will see the presence of monitoring in the country’s communication system”.

 

“Last week,” he explained, “we received complain from Airtel that they lost last month the sum of U$D 300, 000 to air traffic. If anyone loves this country, then they will let this monitoring process carry- on. We have to protect this country, especially for the future generation.”

 

The NATCOM Chairman noted that, with the recruitment of SUBAH, sim box fraud will soon be history.

 

Touching on another matter, the Chairman told pressmen that they have dragged Multi Choice Sierra Leone Limited (satellite TV operator) to court, for defiant attitude towards keeping by standards set by NATCOM.The matter is expected to commence in court very soon, according to him.

 

However, he said the commission does not have any issues with DSTV (another satellite TV operator).
