The Central Tenders Board and Another v White (T/A White Construction Services): PC 6 Oct 2015

From the Court of Appeal of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (Montserrat) The CTB appealed from a decision that it was in breach of a building contract made with the respondent, Mr White (trading as White Construction Services). The trial judge had ordered that Mr White should recover compensation to be assessed in default of agreement. The CTB’s defence to Mr White’s claim was that it acted ultra vires in failing to comply with proper procedures for the procurement of goods or services by tender, and therefore that the contract was void.
