Railway network operator Železnice Slovenskej Republiky (ŽSR) signed another partial work contract with Reming Consult, a.s. Bratislava. The contract is part of a project to modernize the Žilina - Košice railway track, more precisely the Liptovský Mikuláš - Poprad Tatry stretch. The value of the order is Sk473.9 million without VAT and is the same as the originally named price. The partial contract, which was signed on December 20, 2007, stipulates terms for processing and delivery of documentation for building permits and engineering activities, as well as carrying out the construction and selection of contractors and site supervisors.
According to the published notice, which the ŽSR sent to the European Public Procurement Journal three weeks after the signing of the contract, the reason for choosing the negotiated procedure without a contract notice with the only accepted bid was the fact that the company was picked on the basis of a master contract in line with the valid directive. The project is financed from the EU Cohesion Fund within the Transport for 2007 - 2013 Operational Program. The framework contract was concluded in May 2006 on the basis of a public tender. SITA
