At its session on April 11, the cabinet took note of the annual report of the Public Procurement Office (UVO), presented by its chairman Béla Angyal. According to the report, the UVO received 7,255 public procurement announcements last year, which is only 55.6 percent of the amount received in 2005.
The report further states that the most frequently used procurement method was a negotiated procedure without a contract notice, with partial contracts following a basic framework contract, which procurers used in 4,294, or 59.2 percent, of the cases. The number of open public tenders came to 1,609, or 22.2 percent of all announcements.
The third most often used procurement method was a negotiated procedure without a contract notice and without partial contracts with selected bidders, which was used in 1,168 cases (16.1 percent).
