The completed tender for the supply of PCs to EMERCOM offices throughout Russia was stopped by the decision of the FAS. The company complained to the antimonopoly department, whose application was rejected by the customer. The proceedings in the FAS ended in favor of the complainant, therefore, the company “Migalka”, which is very quickly gaining momentum on the IT state order, is left without a contract at the moment.
Cancellation of the results of the tender of the “daughter” of the Ministry of Emergency Situations
As CNews found out, the structure within the Ministry of Emergency Situations failed to conclude a contract with the winner of its tender for the supply of PCs in the amount of 219.9 million rubles. The determination of the supplier was canceled by the decision of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS).
The tender under consideration was launched on December 2, 2021 in the format of an electronic auction with an initial maximum contract price of RUB 254.2 million. The direct customer was the federal state institution “Central base of measuring equipment of the RF Ministry for Civil Defense, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters” (MES).
Applications were accepted until December 10. After the expiration of this period, it became clear that the applicants for the budget funds are four companies: “Migalka”, “123 solutions”, MP and “Isiel Techno”.
As a result of the auction, the winner was “Migalka”, which reduced the initial contract price by 34.3 million rubles. The company “Isiel Techno” was not allowed to bid, considering that its application did not comply with the terms of the procurement legislation.
The Ministry of Emergencies by the decision of the FAS stopped a multimillion-dollar tender for the supply of PCs
The organization did not agree with this decision and on December 13, 2021 appealed to the FAS. Following the review of the company’s complaint, the supervisory authority agreed with its arguments and admitted that the customer had violated the law on the contract system. Based on this, the customer was forced on January 11, 2022 to cancel the supplier identification protocol.
On the public procurement website, the tender does not have the status of canceled. The editors are awaiting comments from the Ministry of Emergency Situations regarding when the procurement procedure can be restarted, and whether it is planned to make any changes to its conditions.
The essence of the proceedings in the FAS
In the minutes of consideration of the applications of the tender participants, the state customer stated the reason for the rejection of the offer by Isiel Techno in sufficient detail.
“It is not allowed to indicate specific values of indicators if, in accordance with the requirements of the technical assignment, the value of the indicator cannot be changed or the requirements for specifying the value of the indicator by the procurement participant have not been established,” the document says. – The terms of reference for the documentation on the electronic auction contain requirements for the warranty period: “not less than 36 months”, while in accordance with the requirements of the terms of reference, the value of the indicator cannot be changed. In violation of the instructions, the procurement participant in his application changed the required indicators and indicated specific indicators for the warranty period: “36 months”. “
The Antimonopoly Service, when considering the complaint by Isiel Techno, considered the reason for the rejection of this company’s application to be unlawful. “The warranty period is not a functional, technical or quality characteristic of the product, and therefore the requirement to provide this information as part of the first parts of applications is illegal,” the FAS said in its decision. “In addition, the requirements for the warranty period are not provided for by the items of the catalog of goods, works, services to meet state and municipal needs for the supplied goods.”
What exactly is the Ministry of Emergency Situations trying to buy
As follows from the terms of reference of the aforementioned tender, the Central Base of Measuring Equipment of the Ministry of Emergency Situations requires 2542 personal computers. They must be based on eight-core, 16-thread processors with a base clock speed of at least 3 GHz.
