St Lucia-based company, FDL Consult Incorporated, has been awarded an $876,250 government contract to provide engineering, design, and construction supervision services for the restoration of roads, slopes, and coastal defences in the territory.
Cabinet decided to approve FDL on December 19 last year after the Central Tender Board recommended the company for the job.
This contract represents one of many the company has been awarded in the last several years.
Some of their notable contracts include a $408,000 consultancy for National Sewerage Programme last year as well as the $499,500 engineering consultancy for the Caribbean Development Bank loan-funded programme for damaged roads caused by Tropical Storm Otto in 2010.
Meanwhile, this latest consultancy will be done through the Recovery and Development Agency.
Former legislators get transportation allowance
During the same December 19 sitting, Cabinet had also approved for $7,106 to be paid yearly for transportation services for two of the territory’s former legislators – Ralph T O’Neal and Eileen Parsons.
O’Neal who is a former Chief Minister (premier) created history as the longest-serving elected representative in the British Virgin Islands.
Parsons is a well-known former government minister and cultural icon.
