Parliament: Amendment to the Act on Public Tenders

A governmental amendment to the Act on Public Tenders will go through the second and third reading during the plenary session starting on January 26. It comprises a number of simplification provisions (foreign persons will only be obliged to submit documents from the country where there have a seat, not also the Czech Republic; not verified copies would be required + the originals before a contract is signed). Also, a ban on participating in public tenders for 3 years if the subject was cheating when claiming qualification, a reporting duty in case of framework contracts strengthened etc. More
