Prison service tender cancelled

The Czech Office for the Protection of Competition has cancelled a 25-million crown tender by the country’s prison service to buy transceivers. The anti-monopoly watchdog said the prison service failed to specify its criteria for the winning bid which made the procurement project non-transparent and could have affected the choice of the most advantageous offer. The prison service picked the firm RCD Radiokomunikace to deliver 3,000 transceivers and 250 base stations; however, it will now have to evaluate all the bids again.
