Procurement office finds ‘imperfections’ in bulletin board tender

The investigation by the Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) of the so-called bulletin board tender at the Construction and Regional Development Ministry has found both procedural and factual ‘imperfections’ that represent incorrect application of the Public Procurement Act, ÚVO spokesperson Helena Fialová told the TASR newswire on April 8.

The investigation by the Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) of the so-called bulletin board tender at the Construction and Regional Development Ministry has found both procedural and factual ‘imperfections’ that represent incorrect application of the Public Procurement Act, ÚVO spokesperson Helena Fialová told the TASR newswire on April 8.

The imperfections include inconsistent application of the contents of tender competition materials in connection with the call for submitting the bids that the ministry set by itself, said Fialová.

ÚVO and Construction Ministry representatives discussed the protocol on the result of the investigation on April 9. The ministry’s tender was for informational and education activities, providing legal, interpretation and translation services, promotion, and advertising connected with the implementation of projects using EU funds. The minutes on the discussion on the protocol were subsequently signed by the members of inspection group of UVO and statutory representative of the ministry.

ÚVO has ordered the ministry's statutory representative to adopt specific measures for the ascertained imperfections, along with the reasons why they emerged, and to submit them to ÚVO by May 11.

The Construction Ministry is also obliged to find out which of its employees are responsible for the imperfections, to submit a written report on the fulfillment of the measures aimed at removing imperfections and their reasons to ÚVO, as well as on the application of legal responsibility by June 1.
