ÚVO asks court to postpone deadline

The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) on July 30 asked the Bratislava Regional Court to extend the deadline for it to respond to suits filed by the three bidders expelled from supplying the electronic toll collection system in Slovakia.

The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) on July 30 asked the Bratislava Regional Court to extend the deadline for it to respond to suits filed by the three bidders expelled from supplying the electronic toll collection system in Slovakia.

ÚVO is asking for another 15 days, or until August 25, spokesperson Helena Fialová told the TASR newswire.

"We have asked for an extension because it's a demanding matter and a 15-day deadline that expires on August 11 is insufficient," Fialová said.

Three consortia filed suit against the National Highway Company (NDS) for expelling them from the tender: Austrian firm Kapsch TrafficCom; Slovakpass, led by Italian company Autostrade; and ToSy, led by the Bratislava company Elektrovod Holding. ÚVO is reviewing the expulsion.
