Commenting article: Bulgarian Watchdog Rejects Another Appeal over Sofia's Waste Plant

Bulgaria's Competition Protection Commission (CPC) has rejected the appeals against the public procurement tender for building of a waste treatment plant in Sofia.

The public procurement tender was won by a consortium between the Bulgarian “Stanilov” company and the German “Heilit”, who offered BGN 209 M, and was afterwards attacked with appeals by four of the rejected competitors.

The German “Hochtief” and the Greek “Helector”, who participated with a joint bid in the tender of the Sofia Municipality but were ranked second, appealed against the outcome of the tender.

"According to the appealers, the winner did not meet the requirement of the municipality for having experience in construction of waste treatment plants. However, CPC have decided there were no gaps in the documents of the consortium."

Ah yes, the "gaps" were filled with "kesh" no doubt.....after all who cares about experience in BG? Money talks!
