Govt mulls granting nafas tender for supply of padi fertilisers

GURUN, The government is considering granting the National Farmers Organisation’s (NAFAS) fertiliser factory, Malaysian NPK Fertiliser Sdn Bhd (MNFSB), the tender to supply padi fertilisers directly under the padi fertiliser subsidy scheme.

Deputy finance minister Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah said though the award of tenders via the open tender system was the general policy under the Pakatan Harapan government, the government would also consider certain aspects of each tender.

But that being said, it does not mean that there is no possibility of direct negotiations or a system for direct awards to suppliers, service providers or product suppliers.
