The Bulgarian Supreme Administrative Council (VAS) ruled Friday to give final approval of the order of the Mayor of Sofia, Yordanka Fandakova, for the selection of the winning bidder to build the city's waste processing plant.
With this rule the Sofia City Hall can now sign the contract with the consortium between the Bulgarian "Stanilov" company and the German "Heilit", who offered BGN 209 M, and was afterwards attacked with appeals by the rejected competitors.
VAS rejected the complaints of the other bidders - the Bulgarian companies "Balkanstroi", "Valmex," the German "Hochtief," the Greek "Helector,"and the Austrian "Alpine Bau," who are among the seven appealing the public tender procedure and the decision of the Competition Protection Commission that they did not meet the requirements for having experience in construction of waste treatment plants and did not prove to have key experts.
The magistrates ruled the Commission acted accordingly in confirming the City Hall ranking of the bidders and selecting "Stanilov-Heilit" as the contractor for the project.
