SlovakPass complains to EC over toll tender expulsion

The consortium Slovakpass, which the National Highway Company (NDS) expelled from an electronic toll collection tender and whose request for remedy of this decision it subsequently dismissed, has filed a complaint with the European Commission, the SITA newswire wrote. The consortium stated May 21 that the Slovak Republic has violated European rules for public procurement.

The consortium stated May 21 that the Slovak Republic has violated European rules for public procurement.

Peter Newole, Project Executive of Slovakpass, said that the NDS's original arguments for the exclusion were groundless, subjective and arbitrary.

"NDS' response to our request for remedy leads us to the opinion that there
may be no interest in hearing any argument. Therefore, we decided to go directly to Brussels, as we are concerned whether the local environment assures transparency, non-discrimination and Europe-wide and internationally accepted legal standards," he added. SITA
