Announcement regarding the bid announced by the Department for the Recovery from the Impact of Natural Disasters (Ministry of Infrastructure and Networks) for the supply of 1,150 single transferable shelters, container type
On February 1, 2016 our company "INTRAKAT SA" took part in the bid announced by the Department for the Recovery from the Impact of Natural Disasters (Ministry of Infrastructure and Networks).
The bid was conducted in accordance with the provisions of the law on Public Procurement in the form of e-tender negotiation following invitation "For the supply of 1.150 single transferable shelters, container type" with lowest price per shelter as award criterion.
According to this procedure, the Contracting Department for the Recovery from the Impact of Natural Disasters informed, by reference to the register of registered companies, our company and invited us to participate in an electronic bid with the eight largest manufacturers-suppliers having sufficient experience in manufacturing and supplying emergency or non-emergency shelters (suppliers of the School Building Organization S.A., Department for the Recovery from the Impact of Natural Disasters, etc.).
Our company participated, through electronic submission, in three consecutive rounds of electronic bids by providing discounts on the initial value, following the legal procedures of public interest commissions and transparency under fully open conditions of competition.
Following the completion of the final phase of the tender procedure, the Contracting Authority officially informed us that our Company is the Provisional Contractor, in part of the Tender for the supply of 359 shelters.
Following the official announcement, part of the media released completely unsubstantiated reports implying non-competitive direct award while comparing prices with other metal light type shelters, which do not comply with the specific requirements of the competition, in particular: fully equipped (kitchen, living room, bathroom, air conditioning) and ready to use with no other additions, so as to adequately accommodate 8 persons.
