The name of the project should be clearly stated. This letter must be stamped and signed by the relevant Government department, entity or agency.
With the letter in hand, the hardware store will have enough proof that the contractor is allowed to purchase materials.
Ministry TEATT reminds contractors that Hardware stores will only be open for a limited period of time during the day, and therefore it is imperative that they ensure that they have the necessary proof to acquire their materials in a timely manner in order to continue to carry out the project in question.
