Gainako’s investigation reveals that two delegations of Security Officers travelled to Spain and Germany with Businessmen who submitted bids on the Aluminium Number Plate Bid one year before the contract was awarded.
This investigation reveals pictures of the trip to Spain and the Security Officers that travelled to Germany on a trip that appears as a clear conflict of interest.
The eventual winner Comfort Quality Services submitted a bid of D65.7 Million, over D20.2 Million more than the second-highest bidder.
The call for tender which required bidders to supply a fixed amount of Number Plates (65,000), one month after signing the contract is totally at odds with the Tentative Agreement signed between the Ministry of Interior and Comfort.
Not only has the Interior Ministry overruled the decision of the Complaints Review Board they decided to award Comfort a 5 years renewable contract to supply an unspecified amount of Number Plates which is totally at odds with the bid requirements.
