State penalizes itself for errors in IT contracts

The tax authority has imposed the highest fine ever of CZK 500m on the Ministry of Agriculture for illegal procedure in selecting IT suppliers. It concerns contracts in 2005-2011, earlier pointed to by the Supreme Audit Office (NKÚ). The ministry did not announce a tender at that time and set qualification conditions for another contract excluding a number of bidders in advance. The ministry has appealed against the verdict.
