The government on Wednesday, July 6, approved a package of measures aimed at bolstering competition in public tenders, putting a halt to copyright violations and boosting the transparency of suppliers. The measures are designed to lead to the cheaper procurement of information technology.

"The purchase and maintenance of information technology ... has been misused in the past, creating inappropriate profits for private companies and persons at the expense of taxpayers. The main goal of this proposal is cheaper, more efficient and transparent purchases of information technology," reads the report, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Other measures that should help to achieve this goal include limiting the scope of amendments to contracts, introducing the standardised classification of goods and services to be purchased, and setting price limits on purchasing hardware and related services.
