The University of Science and Technology of Southern Philippines (USTP) has released a statement refuting the allegations made by the contractor of the unfinished P200 million eight-storey Student Center and Education Complex.
According to the statement, the USTP Board of Regents terminated the project after the contractor, Wing-An Construction, violated several provisions of the contract as follows:
a. subcontracted without authority a portion of the works to a third party;
b. made unauthorized substitution of key personnel; and
c. failed to deploy key personnel committed under the contract.
