Issues Concern: Entitlement to Honoraria



Whether Bids and Awards Committee (BAC) members are entitled to receive honoraria even if there is a failure of bidding.


Section 4 (Rationale) of BC No. 2004-5A clearly provides that “[p]ropriety dictates that only persons who have successfully completed their tasks or participated in accomplished activities ought to be compensated”. Similarly, Section 5.4 states that the honoraria shall be paid only upon the successful completion of each procurement project.

Based on the foregoing, payment of honoraria shall be paid only upon successful completion of the procurement activities giving rise to the award and the implementation of the project subject matter of the procurement.
