Inspection at Ministry complete – but no results yet

Even though an inspection of a disputed tender at the Construction and Regional Development Ministry (MVRR) by the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) is complete, its results can't yet be published, NKÚ chairman Ján Jasovský said after a government session on January 14. "The inspection [process] will be finished after the results are discussed with the minister [Marián Janušek], and that hasn't happened yet. I don't know when it will happen. There are 17 pages of comments. I estimate a week [for the results to be published]," said Jasovský. The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO), which is also conducting its own inspection at the ministry, said on Tuesday that it was still documenting the tender, the TASR newswire reported. Janušek, an SNS nominee, faces accusations of corruption in connection with the tender, for provision of information and educational services organised by the ministry. The minister survived a no-confidence vote over the allegations in parliament late last year. TASR
