POMSSUP Procurement

Monday July 2, 2014 – The NJS Consultancy Team engaged by the IPBC for the Port Moresby Sewerage System Upgrading Project (POMSSUP) had a recent tour of the Monier Limited operations in Port Moresby.

The tour is aimed to get firsthand information about products and product lines available in PNG which can be procured locally. Both the Independent Public Business Corporation (IPBC) and NJS Consultants are aiming to involve local firms in the construction process as much as possible. The IPBC is the executing agency for the sewerage project, while NJS are also responsible for the tendering process. Both welcomed the opportunity to visit Monier as suppliers of quality construction materials and building products in Papua New Guinea.

Mr Wasantha Kumarasiri, Managing Director of the IPBC said: “Wherever possible we need to include local suppliers and construction firms in POMSSUP so that PNG contributes dynamically to this project of national importance.” POMSSUP with its state of the art waste water treatment plant is funded by the Japanese Government through JICA. The new sewerage scheme will be operated by Eda Ranu.

The NJS Consultancy Team toured the Monier operations at Six Mile, the Masonry plant at Rouna Quarry and the sand processing plant at Nebiri Quarry outside Port Moresby. All of its production and manufacturing facilities are supported with a PNGLAS accredited quality control testing laboratory.The NJS Consultancy Team will also be visiting and considering other prospective suppliers in Port Moresby with the view to securing their services in the project.
