Project status

The Lead Beneficiary signed the contract no.50 / 12.03.2018 for the elaboration of the technical project and the work execution with SC CONSIG SA and ING PROIECT MANAGEMENT SRL through the leader SC CONSIG SA (the value of the works - 6.128.313,31 lei with VAT, technical - 130,900 lei with VAT).

The lead beneficiary stated that after the elaboration of the technical project, the designer issued on 22.06.2018, an analysis by the internal evaluation commission of the Giurgiu County Council was needed. Following the verification, technical and financial changes were observed and the value of the works exceeds by approx. 1,000,000 Lei the value offered in public procurement works.

As the Lead Beneficiary stated, on September 10, 2018, he requested a point of view of the National Agency for Public Procurement to overcome the value of the winning bid with approx. 20% (the total value of the works in the signed contract - 6.128.313,31 lei with VAT). On 14.09.2018 the Agency sent a reply to the Lead Beneficiary. A reformulated application was sent to NAPP on September 14, 2018, and the Lead Beneficiary is waiting for the answer.

Therefore, the Technical Project is not yet accepted and, after the National Public Procurement Agency will present its point of view, it is possible to launch a new procurement procedure for about 7% from 20% (the percentage exceeding the value of the winning bid) due to the fact that these works could be separated and executed by other manufacturers and the legislation (NAPP Ordinance no.3 / 2017) allows the winning bidder to exceed the value offered by no more than 15%.

It should be noted that the Lead Beneficiary is unable to complete the construction works in due time, given the fact that the remaining implementation period is 16 months, while under the signed contract, the period of execution of the works is 20 months. All this is in the context of the aforementioned situation, which is not yet resolved.

The rest of the activities are implemented according to the program. Information and publicity contracts, organization of events were signed by the Lead Beneficiary, and contracts for office equipment, promotional materials and engineering were signed by B2.

According to the information provided by the B2 representative, the contract for drawing up the technical design contract and the contract for the execution of the works was signed, but it was not reported / uploaded in the eMS system.

Extending the implementation period of the project was considered, but the Lead beneficiary will prepare the request for amendment and supporting documents after the National Public Procurement Agency will present a point of view on public works.
