“Ministry of Defence is benefiting from a huge share of these newly-approved contracts,” said the Presidential Palace in a statement, adding that 101 Million Afghanis were saved only in five contracts.
This year, NPC has saved more than AFG9 billion in comparison to the previous years.
The meeting on Tuesday was chaired by President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani and attended by second Vic-President Mohammad Sarwar Danish, Minister of Finance Eklil Hakimi, Minister of Justice Abdul Basir Anwar and Minister of Economy Abdul Sattar Murad.
President Ghani said that an independent commission would investigate the accusations made against high-ranking government officials based on a clear mechanism in order to have more transparency and accountability.
He said that NPC has been implementing full transparency in procurement and more efforts would be made in this regard.
