The Ministry of Interior launched a competition to buy about 1,200 cars worth approximately €23 million, which will be used not only by the ministry itself, but by other ministries as well, the SITA newswire reported on April 7.

The ministry plans to buy low to mid-level cars from at least three companies in the following four years, according to the announcement published in the journal of public procurements. It will pick the winners based on the economically most advantageous offer, which will take into account the price of services as well as quality and utility of the object of the contract. Interested firms can submit their bids by May 21.

Interior Ministry representatives revealed their intention to buy hundreds of new cars, including passenger cars, vans and microbuses, last October. At that time the ministry wrote that the specific number of vehicles will depend on the finances allocated to the ministries, SITA wrote.
