ÚVO turns down seventh objection in highway toll tender

The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) recently rejected the seventh objection by a bidder that was excluded from the National Highway Company’s tender to supply a comprehensive electronic toll collection service.

The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) recently rejected the seventh objection by a bidder that was excluded from the National Highway Company’s tender to supply a comprehensive electronic toll collection service.

The most recent rejection affected a complaint lodged by Elektrovod Holding, the leader of Slovak-Swiss ToSy consortium, ÚVO spokeswoman Helena Fialová informed the SITA newswire on September 11.

"The ÚVO commission stated that the procurer in the above issue acted in line with the public procurement law, since SanToll's explanation was delivered within the set deadline and, simultaneously, its bid contained requirements specified in tender dossiers that were subject to explanation," ÚVO stated.

In its objection, Elektrovod Holding argued that the procurer had violated the principles of equal treatment and non-discrimination.

SanToll is the sole remaining company in the game for the electronic toll tender, although it submitted the highest price bid. ÚVO is supposed to decide on another objection, this time by Austrian company Kapsch TrafficCom, which was expelled from the tender, by September 29.

The National Highway Company has still not officially announced the tender’s results, although it planned to sign a contract with the selected bidder this April. SITA
