bpv GRIGORESCU STEFANICA urges the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage to reevaluate Romprest bid28 January 2013
The Ministry of Culture and National Heritage is forced by a decision of the Bucharest Court of Appeal to reevaluate the bid of Romprest in the public auction for contracting the cleaning and hygiene services for its and the National Library’s headquarters, amounting approximately EUR 2 million.
The Bucharest Court of Appeal discarded the complaint filed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, by which it refused to reevaluate the bid of Romprest for the cleaning and hygiene services, which are to be contracted for a period of three years.
The dispute between the Ministry of Culture and Romprest started when the Romprest bid was declared ineligible and eliminated from the auction by the Ministry’s representatives. The bpv GRIGORESCU STEFANICA legal team helped Romprest in gaining the right to reenter the competition, by addressing the National Council for Solving Complaints (NCSC), who decided that the offer should be reconsidered.
However, the NCSC’s decision was opposed by the Ministry of Culture, who refused to reconsider the bid and filed a complaint at the Bucharest Court of Appeal. The lawyers’ team representing Romprest succeeded, for the second time, in obtaining a favourable decision for the company, and the Bucharest Court of Appeal discarded the Ministry’s complaint.
As consequence, the Ministry of Culture is now compelled to reevaluate the bid put up by Romprest in 5 days’ time from the definitive and irrevocable ruling pronounced on the 21st January 2013.
The bpv Grigorescu Ştefănică team involved in solving the dispute and putting Romprest back in the race is formed by lawyers Daniel Ştefănică (Partner), Alberto Văduva (Associate) and Irina Ionescu (Associate).
