Status of CTE Inspections


Welcome cvos annual zonal review meeting south zone i

The above table shows that CTEO is able to inspect very few works and many organizations have not been inspected at all. These organizations are executing lower value works. Therefore, there is a strong need for CVOs to conduct CTE type inspections of contracts in their organizations.


Case study 1

Case Study 1

  • CTE Inspection

    • Inspection Report sent in March 2008.

    • First reply received after 5 months.

    • Further details awaited even after 4 months.

  • Work awarded to a PSU on nomination.

  • Bank did not inspect work during execution.

  • Poor quality of work but no action by bank

  • Work delayed (60 months against 27 months)

  • Liquidated damages not levied.

  • Buildings lying un-occupied > 2 years.

  • Bank continues to pay lease rent.


Case study 2

Case Study 2

  • CTE Inspection – March 2005

    • 3 paras referred to CVO - July 2007.

    • Report received - May 2008.

    • Confirmation of recoveries still awaited.

  • Abnormal delay in submission of investigation reports by CVO.

  • Slackness in enforcing recoveries.

South zone 22 01 2009

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • A Bank has awarded a contract in 2006 to vendor M/s X, at a cost of Rs.8.70 crores for supply, installation & commissioning of threenumbers each of SUN Fire E 6900 Servers and SUN StorEdge 3510 FC arrays and related hardware and software at its Data Centre and Disaster Recovery (DR) Site. The case was intensively examined during Aug’ 2008.


South zone 22 01 20091

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • In this case, Bank involved as many as four Consultants.

  • While the appointment of M/s C-DAC was through a process of competitive bidding, the other three consultants were engaged after having direct discussions with them.

  • Selection process by nomination without a tender process, lacks transparency, and could encourage unacceptable practices.


South zone 22 01 20092

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • In the case of appointment of M/s C-DAC, Bank had floated a limited tender enquiry to five organizations out of which, Bank got three offers. Out of these three offers, two offers were disqualified for not meeting the tender eligibility criteria.

  • Apparently, the Bank had not verified the credentials of the prospective biddersbefore issuing limited tender. Instead of inviting bids through open tendering, a limited tender enquiry was issued to the firms who did not have the requisite experience and other eligibility conditions, mentioned in the tender.


South zone 22 01 20093

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • In the 1st tender, though the qualification criteria was specified and apparently, all the 4 bidders met with these qualifying conditions, this tender was discharged as –

  • i) demand drafts towards the cost of tender documents and EMD, submitted by two of the bidders, M/s A and M/s B, had consecutive serial numbers issued by CITI Bank on ING Vysya Bank and ii) the track record of all the vendors except M/s W did not show any experience in installing servers of equivalent capacity.


South zone 22 01 20094

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • Cancellation of 1st tender for submission of demand drafts bearing consecutiveserialnumbers by two bidders is not enough justification. It was done without giving any opportunity to these two bidders to explain / clarify the position.

  • The second reason for cancellation, that except M/s W, no other bidder had any experience in installing servers of equivalent capacity, is also not acceptable, because this was not a criterion to determine the eligibility of a vendor, as per tender.


South zone 22 01 20095

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • If experience in installing ‘Servers’ of equivalent capacity was essential for award of contract, Bank could have modified the qualifying criteria accordingly in the fresh tender issued, after cancellation of the 1st tender.

  • No such condition was incorporatedin the 2nd tender issued in March 2006.

  • The qualifying conditions in the 2nd tender remained the same as specified in the 1st tender.


South zone 22 01 20096

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • Again in the 2nd tender, though the offer of M/s B was meeting the qualifying criteria as specified in the tender documents, this offer was rejected stating that the firm had no track record of pastinstallationsof similar Servers. M/s B it was stated, also did not have Service Support Centers of their own.

  • These two conditions were notstipulated in the tender documents and thus the offer of the firm was rejected on the basis of unspecified criteria.


South zone 22 01 20097

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • The Bank in its internal noting has given reference to an informal discussion with the concerned authority in the office of CVC on 25.1.2006, and recorded that “…the clarity that emerged at the discussion was that in the facts and circumstances of the case, it would be in order for the Bank to procure the hardware in question by entering into direct negotiations with M/s Sun Microsystems who are the original equipment manufacturers and getting supplies through their partners after ensuring that the commercials offered for supply, installation and commissioning are reasonable.”

  • Bank is not expected to record the informal advice given by an officer in his individual capacity in their Internal Notes.


South zone 22 01 20098

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • As far as –

    Informal discussions with the concerned authority in the office of Central Vigilance Commission is concerned,

  • Commission does not approve of taking cognizance of such informal discussions unless the same are confirmed in writing by the Commission.


South zone 22 01 20099

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • Tender was issued for ‘Sun specific’ products inviting bids from the authorized dealers of Sun Microsystems, as Sun does not directly sell their products, but sell through their partners who have professionals trained on SUN Systems.

  • Open tender was issued to get multiple bids for the purpose of price comparison. However, only two weeks time was given for submission of bids and copy of tender notice was not sent to known vendors as advance intimation. This, perhaps was one of the reasons for getting only two offers in the 2nd tender.


South zone 22 01 200910

South Zone (22.01.2009)

Further, out of these two offers, the offer of one firm, M/s B was rejected on the basis of unspecifiedcriteria. Bank was left with only one offer and hence, there was no competition. Lack of advance intimation to the prospective bidders and insufficient time for submission of bids, defeatedthewhole purpose of open tendering.

  • Bank also could not establish the reasonableness of the price. Bank should have compared the prices of Sun products, with the products of other manufacturers on the basis of some standard benchmarks like transaction processing ratings done by third party benchmarking agencies.


South zone 22 01 200911

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • As per tender and the purchaseorder, the Systems to be supplied were to be insured by the vendor against all risks of loss or damage from the date of shipment, till such time it is delivered at the Bank site.

  • Apparently, the details of insurance taken by the firm M/s W were notchecked / verified by the Bank at the time of taking delivery of the consignment and / or making payment.


South zone 22 01 200912

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • A Bank has awarded a contract in June 2008, to M/s W at a cost of Rs.21.49 crores for the supply, installation, commissioning of hardware & software and administration, maintenance & support, for implementation of an End to End Enterprise Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence Solution. The case was intensively examined during Oct-Nov ’2008.


South zone 22 01 200913

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • Offers of some firms were rejected as their names were not indicated as vendor/SI (system integrator) /consortiumpartner, in the references given by them. The name of M/s W, the successfulbidder, was also not indicated in the references given by them. Another reference of LIC given by M/s W considered, was also not meeting the eligibility conditions fully.


South zone 22 01 200914

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • M/s T, another technically qualified bidder, had given references that were also not meeting the eligibility conditions fully.

  • Offer of M/s H was rejected after presentation, since analytical CRM quoted by the vendor was not implemented in any Bank in India.

  • The offer of M/s H should have been rejected at the initial stage itself and firm should not have been called for presentation, if the analytical CRM offered by M/s H was not acceptable.

  • Further, various parameters that were to beconsidered for evaluation during presentation, were not specifiedin the RFP document.


South zone 22 01 200915

South Zone (22.01.2009)

  • 80% payment amounting to Rs.4.31crore, was released without any inspection.

  • As per Purchase Order terms, it was to be released only upon delivery and submission of various documents including inspection certificate issued by the nominated inspection agency; and the Supplier's factory inspection report.

  • (i.e. - Contract terms were not followed, & vendor benefited by early release of payment)
