The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) dismissed another objection by Austrian company Kapsch TrafficCom, which accused the other participants in the tender to supply an electronic toll collection service of submitting false information, the SITA newswire wrote.

"The ÚVO dismissed the objection because the office did not share the consortium’s opinion," ÚVO spokesperson Helena Fialová said on August 12.

ÚVO points out that effectiveness of toll collection depends on many factors, mainly on the technical solution of the toll collection system. Moreover, ÚVO stated that if the winner of the tender fails to provide the offered effectiveness of toll collection, it can expect sanctions in the form of fines, revocation of the contract and loss of eligibility to operate the toll collection system.

ÚVO has received two other objections by Slovakpass and ToSy.

"ÚVO is dealing with these motions, the decisions will be issued by September 2 in the first case and by September 8, 2008, in the second case," Fialová said. SITA
