ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - The minister for Service Newfoundland and Labrador is promising changes to the Public Tendering Act, but he's not saying exactly when.

Dan Crummell says tendering reform is a complex piece of legislation and the government needs to make sure it gets it right.

Promises to revise the act date back as far as 2003 and first reading of a bill made it to the legislature in 2012, but the text was not made available.

Crummell says over the last year there has been a cross-jurisdiction analysis and consultations with those who would be affected.

He says the government will table a commitment in the legislature before the next election.

The act sets out how the government and its public bodies purchase goods. (VOCM)
