Anti-monopoly office halts Interior Ministry’s telecommunications tender

15-01-2014

The Czech Office for the Protection of Competition has for the second time halted a 4.6-billion crown tender by the Interior Ministry for telecommunications services for public administration, a spokesman for the office said on Wednesday. The anti-monopoly agency is acting on the basis of complaints filed by two of the ministry’s current suppliers, T-Systems Czech Republic and GTS Czech which objected to the conditions of the tender. The anti-monopoly agency also halted the tender last July, forcing the ministry to change the tender’s conditions.
