Health Ministry acknowledges ANSA McAL protest over drug supply
Trinidadian conglomerate ANSA McAL has received an acknowledgement of its protest to the Health Ministry about its failure to pre-qualify to supply drugs for the country’s health sector but remains tight-lipped about its next move.
ANSA McAL last month formally dispatched a letter to the Ministry of Health asking that it show where the company failed in its pre-qualification evaluation for the supply of drugs, after Cabinet Secretary Dr Roger Luncheon announced that only the New GPC was pre-qualified.
Stabroek News understands that the company will give an update on the status of its protest soon.
Meanwhile, efforts to contact officials of the Ministry of Health proved futile. When calls were made last week to the office of the Ministry of Health’s Permanent Secretary Leslie Cadogan, a female who answered said that he was not there.
