Prague is preparing a billion-dollar tender for waste collection. She has not yet mastered the Prague services
In the coming days, Prague will probably announce an open competition for waste collection. He told Deputy Mayor Jiří Vávra (TOP 09). According to estimates, the value of the contract should be above two billion crowns. The city is pushing for time. The contract, which has been extended several times for waste collection, ends in the autumn.
Prague has so far failed to negotiate the purchase of the company Pražské služby, through which it wanted to provide services in the coming years.
The capital has long-term problems in securing waste collection. The original ten-year contract with Prague Services expired at the end of 2011. Prague wanted to select a new supplier, but canceled the tender due to doubts.
Fight for Prague services
Since then, she has extended her contract with Pražská without proper competition. Last year, it last placed a ten-month contract worth more than a billion crowns.
Prague holds 76.92 percent of the shares in the company Pražské služby, which takes care of cleaning and garbage. The rest belong to six other entities. The largest part, about a sixth, is owned by Northward Holding Limited, which eventually bought it from the Natland group. For several months now, Prague has been trying to negotiate a share repurchase with the company.
However, no agreement has yet been found, Vávra said. According to him, Prague offered 750 million crowns for the share, but the shareholder wants 100 million more.
Although Prague owns a majority in the company, it cannot directly award the tender due to the Public Procurement Act.
