On February 15, 2019, the Public Procurement Commission (PPC) participated in the Open/Career Day at the University of Guyana. The theme for this year Open/ Career Day was ‘Your Vision Our Mission’.
The Opening Ceremony commenced at 9:30 am with the reciting of the National Anthem and the welcome by Ms. Paulette Paul, Public Relations Officer. The Opening remarks were presented by Dr. Nigel Gravesande, Registrar, while the keynote address was delivered by Professor Ivelaw Griffith, Vice-Chancellor. The ceremony concluded with the distribution and presentation of the Certificates of Participation.
The Commission’s booth was managed by Ms. Jonelle DeViera, Communications Officer, with the assistance of Mr. Randy Beckles, Procurement Specialist and Mrs. Michelle Hurry, Assistant Accountant.
There was an influx of participants (students, teachers) to the booth who engaged in rapport sessions with the representatives of the PPC. It was noted that many persons were not familiar with the mandate of the Commission, but were eager to learn about its functions and role in the public procurement system.
