MPs pass bill toughening conditions in public tenders to improve transparency

Czech MPs on Friday passed a bill tightening conditions in public tenders in the aim of making them more transparent. The amendment derails tenders being tailor-made for firms chosen in advance and requires bidders to provide information about major sub-suppliers as well as shareholders. The bill was put forward by Lenka Andrýsová of Public Affairs, the upstart party now in government that succeeded in the last general election when it ran on an anti-corruption platform.
