URA Black Lists Shoddy Suppliers

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) will blacklist suppliers who fail to fulfill the required specifications in their contracts, an official of the authority has said.

“We have organized this workshop to tell you where you always go wrong and whoever will not be able to meet the required specifications for any order made by the authority is to be blacklisted and prosecuted,” said the authority’s manager for compliance and internal audit Moses Kasakya.

“Every action you take affects the authority in revenue collection and image,” he said at a half-day workshop for the authority’s suppliers held at hotel Africana.

He said the authority has established a whistle blowers toll-free numbers 0417-442222 and 0800117000 that can be used by the public to report cases of corruption. Picfare Industries Limited sales team leader Caleb Ainebingi criticized the authority for short listing companies as contractors but not awarded with contracts.
