Procurement Office says Construction Ministry violated the law

The Public Procurement Office (ÚVO) finished its investigation at the Construction and Regional Development Ministry and pointed to serious errors, including administrative errors, made on the part of the ministry in the disputed tender, ÚVO chairman Béla Angyal said at a press conference on Thursday, April 9. “The Public Procurement Act was therefore violated," said Angyal. He later informed Prime Minister Robert Fico, the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ) and a police investigator about the results of the inquiry. The police investigator has been tasked with looking into suspicions of abuse of public office in connection with the tender, the TASR wrote.
