The Public Procurement Law Firm Robert Siwik has represented a consortium of Saferoad group companies in appeal proceedings before Poland's National Chamber of Appeals (NCA) concerning a tender for the maintenance of a section of the country's highway around Poznan. The contracting authority was the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways – Division in Poznan (the "Directorate").
The appeal was brought as a result of, among other things, failure of the Directorate to comply with the requirements set out in another appeal brought by the Saferoad group companies, which had been met in full.
The NCA panel reviewing the appeal referred the matter to the Court of Justice of the European Union to rule on the issue of admissibility of tender evaluation (and inclusion of the tenders in the ranking of tenders) where the tender was submitted out of time.
The Saferoad consortium was represented by Managing Partner Robert Siwik.
