Tender process to renovate National Museum halted after complaint

The Czech anti-trust agency has halted a tender process for the renovation of the National Museum in Prague. The move comes after a complaint from the company OHL Železniční stavby, which was excluded. The director of the museum, Michal Lukeš, says the firm was not considered because it had sent its tender to the wrong address and had taken the step in an effort to be included. He said he did not think this or similar moves would lead to a delay in the renovation project, which has been underway for two years and is due for completion in 2015. The contract is worth CZK 3 billion.
