National Highway Company toll tender halted again

The National Highway Company (NDS) has been stopped from announcing the results of the electronic toll tender or making any further decisions related to it.

The National Highway Company (NDS) has been stopped from announcing the results of the electronic toll tender or making any further decisions related to it.

The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) has suspended all proceedings until a verdict is announced on the objection submitted by the consortium led by Austrian company Kapsch TrafficCom. The group demanded a reassessment of the second main criterion in the tender, namely the toll collection efficiency.

ÚVO spokesperson Helena Fialová informed the SITA newswire that the verdict will be announced by August 11, 2008. The office had halted proceedings due to a previous objection from the same consortium, but Fialová said that that objection was not considered because it did not conform with the law.

SanToll-Ibertax, which submitted the highest bid of the four, is the only bidder remaining. The three other, which were expelled from the tender, filed charges with the Bratislava Regional Court on July 14, 2008 to examine the legality of ÚVO's decision. SITA
