Procurement watchdog annuls controversial MÁV tender

The Public Procurement Arbitration Committee ruled that the Hungarian State Railways Rt (MÁV) must reevaluate the bids received earlier this year for 60 railway engines in a public tender, as several of the amendments made in the evaluation were against the Public Procurement Act, business daily Világgazdaság reported. The committee also imposed a Ft 10 million fine on the railroad company for the unfair procedure. Canadian Bombardier, which lost the contract to the Stadler-Transelektro consortium in spite of undercutting the latter?s offer by Ft 10 billion, is expecting a fair evaluation based on objective criteria.
