The Gambia government has, according to an official document, reinstated the International Telecommunication Gateway’s (MGI) contract to manage GAMTEL’s International Voice Gateway.
This contract was first awarded to Multimedia Gateway Incorporation (MGI) on Dec. 31, 2014 but was terminated in July 7, 2017.
The document stated that the reinstatement will not be retrospective of the months lost and will only affect life of the 2014 contract due to run out on December 2019.
The reinstatement was immediate and conditional upon meeting certain requirements, the document stated.
It will apply on the same terms and conditions as was the case of the termination.
“Upon receipt of this notification, MGI is obliged to notify this office in writing of its position on the revised posture of the government within 5 working days and failure to do so which would be construed as a rejection,” the document further reveals.
Following an unconditional acceptance, MGI will be obliged to swiftly reconnect its services and all the required applicable regulations to ensure compliance essential for smooth operations, the document stated.
