The state Geodetic and Cartographic Institute is renting a building in Liptovský Mikuláš for over €89,000 until at least 2057. The disadvantageous contract with the company Armagedon was signed by nominees of the Slovak NationalParty (SNS) during the first tenure of Robert Fico’s government and is currently almost unoccupied.
Nominees of current opposition party Most-Híd later ordered a review of the €35,000 contract, but the analysis has so far not been found, the Sme daily wrote in its Tuesday, April 2 issue. Last year, Armagedon asked for “indexing” of the rental, meaning that the sum would double after a certain period of time. The state ordered an analysis of this proposal, too, for €7,000, as it appeared to be disadvantageous.
The institute also concluded a contract for central monitoring of security of the information systems of cadastres. The EMM company, which was selected without a tender, was paid €10 million. Though the police investigated the overpriced rental of the Liptovský Mikuláš building in 2010 and 2011, nobody was charged.
