Duty free shop tender to go to the second lowest bidder

Nairobi - Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) and the transport ministry has hatched a plan to award the tender to manage JKIA’s duty free shops to the second lowest bidder, reports the Standard.
Out of the ten firms that had applied for the tender, only five qualified. However, the tender might go to a bidder who had proposed to pay concession fees that is below the global standard of over 20 percent.
If the plot succeeds, the government will end up losing billions in revenue collected from the shops annually since the preferred master concessionaire is only willing to pay 10 percent concession fees.
