The Jamaica Association of Contractors Construction and Consultants (JACCC) is calling for the government to intervene, to have some of its members put back on the list of approved government contractors.
Several contractors have been withdrawn from the National Contracts Commissionís Works Contractor Application Process, following the alleged discovery of irregularities.
Contractors said they have been facing hardship, as they are now unable to bid for government contracts while the re-registration process takes place.
The contractorsí association has been trying to meet with the head of the National Contracts Commission, Raymond McIntyre.
However, it said up to last night no date has been set for a meeting.
The associationís chairman Percival LaTouche said members will be holding a press conference today to discuss the matter.
The press conference is to be held at the Medallion Hall Hotel.
