Finance Ministry names euro website developer

THE TEMPEST company will develop and operate an information website on the euro adoption process in Slovakia.

The government proxy for euro adoption, Igor Barát, told the SITA newswire about the selection on October 22.

The Finance Ministry chose this company from six bidders that entered a public tender, based on the lowest price offered. The price of the order is estimated at Sk5 million (€150,000).

Barát said he expects a public presentation of the new website to take place by the end of this year.

The Finance Ministry announced the tender in early September. The website is part of the communication strategy on the euro adoption process.

Tempest has been operating on the Slovak IT market since 1992 and it currently has more than 200 employees.
