«On December, 11, 2019 the tender committee has already completed reviewing the offers from the bidders for the electronic ticket and decided with winner. This is a consortium of Mikroelektronika and SoftServe. Unfortunately, the bidder who submitted a 2M more expensive bid, concluded that the tender committee is not objective and complained to the EBRD on the customer municipal enterprise «Lvivavtodor» claiming that the procedure was incorrect. The Bank has considered the complaint more than three months and in result approved the resolution of the tender committee that the procedure was due to the Bank policy. Therefore, for us it meant a loss of time.
