MOF's Relationship With KRL International LLC Is Transparent, Consistent With Public Procurement Act
The Ministry of Finance (MOF) has hinted that its working relationship with American-based KRL International LLC is transparent and consistent with public procurement act (PPA).
According to the Ministry, its attention has been made aware of a recent article published anonymously on August 10 on the website Open Source Investigations (OSI) and carried on other local electronic and print media.
In a press release sighted by ThinkNews Online, it said "the articles cited documents which KRL filed with the U.S. Department of Justice in 2016 and 2017 to infer that KRL International was providing services for a Ghanaian political party, while being paid by the Government of Ghana. This is incorrect. The article is a clear misrepresentation of the facts as it relates to Ministry of Finance's contractual relationship with, and fee payments to, KRL International LLC. The Ministry of Finance's relationship with KRL is transparent and consistent with the provisions of the Public Procurement Act"
The release further noted that the Ministry of Finance signed its first agreement with KRL, for Consultancy services on June 28 2017 to provide consultancy services in support of its work in the United States and the International community in the area of strategic communication, investment promotion and government relations.
