PM: eco-tender should be broken down

Prime Minister Petr Nečas has said that a new eco-tender – replacing one currently underway aimed at cleaning up environmental damage in the Czech Republic, would save the country tens of billions of crowns. Speaking on Czech TV on Sunday, he suggested the current super-tender should be broken down into more areas, which would allow more competition and see more advantageous bids. Three firms - Marius Pedersen Engineering, Geosan Group, and Environmental Services - have all bid in the current tender which critics warn could become the country’s largest single corrupt deal.
