SPP tender challenged by Accenture

The firm Accenture has reported to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) a possible conflict of interest in a tender for a new customer system for gas utility SPP. Accenture, one of the firms participating in the tender, has noted that two members of the selection commission rank among the senior management of the Datagas firm, which is owned by Corinex, another bidder in the tender.

The news comes only a few weeks after a scandal over a 1.2 billion crown tender for an information system for the state treasury. The tender was suspended after the Finance Ministry said it had suspicions that one of three firms bidding had tried to bribe members of the tender selection committee.
