All ministries and departments, including education, have been instructed to be frugal in government procurement during the Corona period. At the same time, the government has directed to maintain transparency in the procurement process. 

It is learned that the concerned ministries and departments are aware of the instructions and are already determining the necessary steps in this regard.

At this time of the epidemic, extra expenditure is being made on the implementation of projects and programs under various ministries. Irregularities are also happening somewhere again. In this context, the Ministry of Finance thinks that the concerned people will be careful.

Meanwhile, a circular issued by the Finance Department on Sunday said the government has given utmost importance to the health sector, social security, and economic management in tackling the ongoing coronavirus outbreak in the country. In this context, all ministries and departments are requested to be more frugal in purchases.

It also directed to follow the Public Procurement Act (PPA) and Public Procurement Rules (PPR) in the case of government procurement.
