Signal to the Prosecution Office
Public procurement procedure in the Ministry of Tourism – for producing advertisement videos with the total value of BGN 43 680 – is submitted to the Prosecution Office with serious doubts of procedural violations. These violations include shorter period of announcement of the tender (only 4 days, while legal requirement is 7 days) and publishing of all comprehensive information, including technical assignments, with the initial publication of the procurement procedure.
Moreover, in the procedure initially participated 4 companies, but 3 of them were expelled due to formal administrative reasons. The appointment of the tender commission is also in violation of the procedural rules.
The conclusion of the procurement contract, without a proper and required decision of the minister, is a form of abeyance which the Prosecution Office has to investigate.
