GAMES CONTRACTORS NOTICE

NHA advises last payments this week, if not, next year

BY NED GAGAHE

Contractors of the 17th Pacific Games not yet paid for their services could wait until January next year.

Last payments will be made this week. Remaining ones will be paid next year.

The National Hosting Authority (NHA) for the Sol2023 Pacific Games has assured that its staff are working around the clock to ensure contract sums for services are paid.

However, NHA says any payment not cleared this week will be left until “after Christmas and New Year”.

This is because their office will be closed on December 22 and open back for business on January 3, 2024.

“NHA wishes to inform the contractors that the Games Organizing Committee Functional Areas and NHA Secretariat staff are working around the clock to ensure all contract sums for services that helped our nation deliver successful 17th Edition of the Pacific Games are paid.

“We adhere to strict procurement processes so it is taking our team a bit of time to process payments but most of the payments will be cleared this week.

“Unfortunately, any payment that is not cleared this week will have to be left until after Christmas and New Year. Our office will close on the 22nd December and will open back for Business on the 3rd of January 2024.

“We regret any inconvenience this may cause to any contractor but our staff deserve to take a break.

“We guarantee that all contractors who supported this nation to deliver successful pacific games that are not paid before Christmas will get paid their dues when the office opens back for business in the new year.

“NHA Secretariat wishes to take this opportunity to wish all individual, contractors, their staff and families, a merry Christmas and prosperous New Year 2024.” NHA said in a statement.
