The ministry recommended, to “reconsider the contracting methods, and determine the reasons for the companies’ delay in executing the contracting, while conducting a continuous evaluation of the project, and coordinating with the security authorities to protect the projects and the executing cadres, with the formation of joint committees from the beneficiaries to calculate the rates of extinction and financial losses as a result of stopping projects for long periods.” As well as taking appropriate measures against the lagging companies.
