Sindh Government makes Coronavirus related procurements most Transparent in Pakistan

During these extraordinary times, the governments’ world over are spending billions of dollars on coronavirus-related procurement on emergency basis, bypassing Competitive bidding. Such procurements are highly risky and open to corruption. It is therefore critically important that procurements without competitive bidding are done at market prices and are transparent.
