Appeal approved for ICC bidding procedure

The consortium of Warbud and Merkury Engineering won an appeal against the decision of the City Hall to choose the offer of NDI, Balzola and WHD as the winning bid for the completion of works on the International Convention Center (ICC).

Warbud and Merkury Engineering had appealed the decision a few weeks ago and the National Appeal Chamber approved the complaint on Tuesday. The NAC ordered the City Hall to annul the decision and to evaluate the tenders once again.

“The City Hall will have to re-evaluate, if the consortium of NDI, Balzola and WHD meets the financial conditions for participation in the tender procedure. However, the decision of NAC does not mean the consortium’s bid is rejected” – said Małgorzata Stręciwilk, press spokesman of the National Appeal Chamber. According to the bidding procedures, an awarding entity can request bidders for completion of documents and clarifications.

The appeal was also made by the the consortium of Hochtief and Elektrobudowa – the companies protested against the decision of the tender committee which had declined the consortium’s offer (the bid price was the second lowest). The portal informed today that the appeal was rejected by the National Appeal Chamber.
