Mr. Speaker, first, CIDA does not hold the contract with Transelec. The contract is held between the government of the African Republic of Mali and Transelec.
Second, CIDA funds the project and pays the bills according to the Mali government, as they are submitted.
Third, this company's bid was 30% lower than the next lowest bid.
The project will be finished in the near future and it will be done at no additional cost.
