Dear Editor,

During his 2022 Budget Speech on January 26, 2022, Dr. Singh noted that the theme of the Budget is “Steadfast Against All Challenges, Resolute in Building our One Guyana” and that the Budget would be “historial” and “transformational.”

In keeping with the One Guyana theme of the Budget, and on behalf of many Guyanese, I here now ask the Senior Minister to provide answers to the following questions:

1. What is the Regional Budgetary Allocation for each Region of Guyana? Kindly provide breakdown between Current Allocation and Capital Allocation by Region in your answer?

2. How much is budgeted towards construction contracts for each Region?

3. How much is budgeted for subventions to Non-Governmental Organizations, the amount for each Organization and the names of these Organizations?

4. For the nine months ending September 30, 2022, how many contracts have been approved for over GY$100 million; what are the names of the Contractors for the individual Contracts and what is the total value for each contract approved?

5. What amount of Royalties are budgeted to be received in 2022 under the 2016 Production Sharing Agreement (PSA), between Government of Guyana and Exxon and its partners?

6. How much Royalties were received by the Government of Guyana in 2021 under the 2016 PSA?

7. How much were the profits received by the Government of Guyana in 2021, under the 2016 Profit-Sharing Agreement with Exxon and its partners?


8. How much of the pre-contract costs have been amortized and what is the balance of pre-contract costs capitalized as at December 31, 2021 for the PSA with Exxon and its partners?

I Appreciate your timely response.

  1. Hey
    Nigel Hinds forgot to pose these questions.
    How much of the taxpayers’ dollars were given to blacks? What is the rate of return?
    Why are only blacks given hand-outs by this government? You do not appease rabid dogs.
    (I think they are from the same tribe from mudda Africa as the Haitians – useless POS that want and want and want while sitting on their fat asses. They were captured in the tribal wars by better blacks.)
