ÚVO orders to return the cheapest bid

THE PUBLIC Procurement Office (ÚVO) has objected to the decision of the National Highway Company (NDS) to exclude the three cheapest bids in the competition over supervising construction of the cross-country D1 northern section, TV Markíza reported on August 6.

THE PUBLIC Procurement Office (ÚVO) has objected to the decision of the National Highway Company (NDS) to exclude the three cheapest bids in the competition over supervising construction of the cross-country D1 northern section, TV Markíza reported on August 6.

“The decision is still not valid, so the office will not provide any further information,” Ján Mažgút, spokesman for ÚVO, told TV Markíza.

The television station, however, reported that the ÚVO accepted the complaint submitted by the consortium with the cheapest bid. It also ordered NDS to allow the bid back into the competition.

The NDS now has two possibilities: either to appeal the decision or to accept it. In former case, the beginning of the construction of the northern stretch will be delayed. In latter case, there will be only two bids, one worth €3.8 million and the other €7.8 million.

NDS spokesman Michal Fúrik told TV Markíza he will not comment on the ongoing public procurement.
