The procedure of receiving offers is being completed on November 26 for the installation of 20,000 power meters in Belgrade through a public call. EPS distribucija, the public operator, changed the terms since publishing the need for 25,000 single- and three-phase devices, while Feman d. o. o. from Jagodina, one of the potential bidders, filed for rights protection.
The open procedure has the lowest price as the main criterium, and a longer warrant as the secondary rule. The documents show the decision is to be made within 25 days from the opening of offers. The procurement, filed as 253/2014, includes a participation fee of RSD 80,000 (EUR 663) for an offer of up to EUR 663.000, or 0.1% of the price if it is bigger than that sum.
State-owned utility EPS is using an EUR 80 million loan from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and the European Investment Bank for procurement within the EPS Metering project.
