Only active, locally-funded religious groups allowed to bid for Place of Worship land: Ministry of National Development

Post by Fortyeightvows » Thu Sep 20, 2018 6:09 am

Starting today (14 Sep), only religious groups with an active contribution to the community and have sustainable means of funding are allowed to bid for Place of Worship (PW) land under the Ministry of National Development (MND)'s new tender framework.

Under the new framework, tenderers will be firstly "be assessed on a set of pre-qualification criteria," and only those who have passed the first stage will be able to proceed to the second stage "where the site is awarded to the qualified tenderer with the highest bid price".

The Ministry added that tenderers "must have a genuine need for worship space" and "will not use foreign donations for this purpose".
