The volume of investments amounted to €7.7 billion a year, thus growing by 15.7 percent. This stems from an analysis carried out by the CEEC Research company, based on data from the Public Procurement Office.

The number of tenders announced fell last year in 9.1% compared to 2014 when 8,064 were announced (in 2013 there were 9,919 tenders, and in 2012 8,916).

Of last year’s public procurements, 44% were completed (totally worth almost €2 billion, which is 26% of the volume of procurements announced). After deducting the completed and abolished public procurements, 65% of the procurements, worth a total of €5 billion, remain in the system, the head of the company, Jiří Vacek, told the TASR newswire.

Last December, investors announced 1,212 procurements worth €628 million, a record for one month in 2015. Compared with the same period in 2014, this means an increase in 69.7% in numbers and 40.3% in volume. The biggest order of that month was for the modernisation of tram rails in Košice, worth €88 million.

For the 12 months of last year, investors finished and assigned to specific companies a total of 5,861 public procurements worth totally €4.5 billion. Although the number is almost the same compared year-on-year, the volume declined markedly, by 30.7%. This disproportion is caused mainly by smaller orders being completed in 2015, according to the analytical company.
