Gov’t may speed up single agency to replace OCG

THE Government could step up efforts to create a single anti-corruption commission this year, following its latest confrontation with the Office of the Contractor General (OCG).

Minister of Transport, Works and Housing Dr Omar Davies last week referred to the proposed creation of the single agency in a radio interview, in response to a proposal from Opposition Leader Andrew Holness, for the Government to withdraw its court action against the OCG and introduce legislation redefining its powers.
