  • LTAs allows an Employer to enter into a contract(s) with Suppliers/Contractors/Service-Providers who have been awarded with an LTA(s) without going through another tender/bidding process.

If in case the top LTA awardee declines the Employer’s offer (e.g. due to a price increase, unavailability of the required quantity of goods/services, incapability to deliver within a required date, etc.) the Employer shall approach the second highest LTA awardee, and so on.
