The Bulgarian Public Financial Inspection Agency has fined the former Minister of State Administration, Nikolay Vasilev, over violations in public procurements.

The size of the fine has not been announced, the Bulgarian daily “Sega” reported Friday.

According to the agency, the former minister had a double standard towards the companies that won the Ministry’s tenders for the installation of flagpoles at border posts and lifting platforms for disabled in public buildings.

Some companies were ordered by Vasilev to pay penalties for delays, and other companies were not.

It is not clear whether the Prosecutor’s Office will decide that there have been enough evidences for raising charges.

The public procurement for installation of flagpoles was won by CMK. This has been the only company, out of the five competitors, that has not presented an annual contract for the procurement, which cost BGN 1,86 M.

The other tender for installation of lifting platforms for disabled cost BGN 1,86 M and was won by the Bulgarian company Liftkom.

According to “Sega”, the holding bought documentation for the procurement after it submitted its offer for participation in the tender.
