FinMin announces third tender for info campaign

For the third time, the Finance Ministry has published a tender announcement for an information and communication campaign in the run-up to Slovakia's adoption of the euro in the official EU Gazette as well as the (Slovak) Public Procurement Bulletin on July 17.

The information was made available on the website of Slovakia's cabinet appointee for euro adoption, Igor Barát.

The tender has been cancelled twice in the past. The first time was on May 9 because many involved entities complained about the ambiguity of the criteria. The second time was just last Friday, July 13, when the Public Procurement Bureau (PPB) accepted objections raised by a non-bidding company called Renesans toward the 'competitive dialogue (with the bidders)' methodology being used.

According to PPB, the methodology would not have ensured selection of the economically most effective offer, but rather served to evaluate the activity of the participants during the dialogue.
