The Ministry of Economy announced a public invitation for consulting services for the establishment of a framework for improving energy efficiency in the units of local self-government. The project filed under 01-2404/6 is worth an estimated EUR 35,000, value-added tax included, and the deadline for applications is November 30. The invitation is published on the website of the Public Procurement Administration.
Bearing in mind the lack of technical capacity and financial resources in some Montenegrin municipalities, the ministry has decided to offer them support in the fulfillment of the obligations stipulated by the Law on Efficient Use of Energy, the announcement said. The project will be implemented in nine smaller and four larger municipalities: Berane, Bijelo Polje, Nikšić and Pljevlja.
Assignments include database and reporting system, analysis, training and determination of measures for 122 buildings with 89,867 square metres, 17,942 public lighting and 555 measuring units, and waste water systems and water supply for 67,129 users.
The offer is valid for 90 days after applications are publicly opened, but the budget funds need to be spent by the end of the calendar year, so it is necessary to complete the procedure by December 31, the documentation states. Participating companies must prepare a guarantee for immediate payment of 2% of the public procurement’s estimated value. The deadline for implementation is 213 days from the signing of the contract. The lowest price is the main criterion, followed by quality.
