ÚVO review of equipment purchases by Bojnice hospital finds flaws

AN INSPECTION by the Public Procurements Office (ÚVO) into the purchases of new radiological equipment by the Hospital and Policlinic in Bojnice found a number of shortcomings, the TASR newswire learned from ÚVO’s spokesperson Ján Mažgút on January 19.

A total of nine violations of the Public Procurement Act were pinpointed during the audit, which was concluded on January 15. They concerned, among other things, a shorter-than-required deadline for submitting bid documentation, missing contract drafts as well as the fact that a bid by PULImedical firm won despite failing to comply with all requirements regarding the subject matter of the contract.

According to Mažgút, since some of the findings indicate that an administrative offence was committed, the case is to be referred for further processing.

The hospital’s revamped radiology department was ceremonially opened in July 2014. The investment swallowed up €1.2 million, but the financing of the project still has not been settled, as neither the hospital nor its parent authority – Trenčín Self-Governing Region – has the money to pay.
