Albania Ex-Minister ‘Rigged’ TV Digital Tender
Former minister’s decision to split the contract to oversee Albania’s digitalization process between two companies – which a court ruled illegal – remains shrouded with controversy.
|Albania former minister of innovation Genc Pollo|
Balkan Insight can reveal that the former Minister of Innovation, Communication and Technology broke public procurement rules in favour of Swedish company Ericsson in a TV digitalization tender worth €23 million.
After Ericsson failed to win the procurement, the minister, Genc Pollo, ordered a second evaluation, a procedure that Albanian procurement law does not normally envisage, which a subsequent Tirana district court ruled illegal.
Based on the second evaluation, Pollo awarded Ericsson half of the lucrative contract, originally won by the Austrian company Rohde and Schwarz – only to annul the contract completely just before he left office last August.
Pollo, the minister of innovation from 2009 until August 2013, justified the new evaluation on the grounds that the original evaluation committee had been “compromised”.
The ex-minister said one of the consultants hired to advise on the process, ORS of Austria, had been in contact with Rohde and Schwarz while the tender took place.
However, ORS denies Pollo’s allegation and the company told Balkan Insight that is considering legal action.
Meanwhile, documents obtained by Balkan Insight show that Kordia Ltd, the consultant company hired by the ministry to undertake the second evaluation,had a conflict of interest with Ericsson.
Kordia Ltd declined to comment to Balkan Insight on the allegation, citing its confidentiality agreement with the government. Ericsson also refused to comment.
“Our company never comments on tenders’ details and processes; we are obliged to respect the confidentiality of the tender itself and the whole process,” Tasos Pagakis, head of communications for Ericsson in Southeast Europe, said. “For the same principle we never comment on legal processes,” he added.
The Albanian government considers the transition from analogue to digital broadcasting a process of national importance, and the most important in the field of radio television broadcasting.
In June 2012, it decided that no television operator, including the public broadcaster, would be able to broadcast in analogue after June 2015.
Four companies took part in the tender launched on March 6, 2013, by the Ministry of Innovation, Communication and Technology to provide a digital terrestrial network for the public broadcaster, TVSH.
Apart from Ericsson and Rohde and Schwarz, the two others were Huawei International, and NEC Eastern Europe Ltd together with Metalcom Inc.
With the help of two consultants, Kordia Ltd and ORS Austria, the ministry drafted the terms of reference and set up an evaluation commission to appraise the bids.
On May 13, 2013, the commission ranked Rohde and Schwarz as the company with the best offer.
However, instead of awarding it the contract, Pollo ordered a second evaluation, solely concerning the technical aspect of the bids.
The second evaluation, carried out by Kordia Ltd, looked only at the technical capabilities of the bidders, the proposed technical solution offered for the transition to digital, and the bidder’s ability to implement the project.
Kordia then ranked Ericsson first and Rohde and Schwarz second, although only by a margin of 0.18 points on a scale of 55.
Following the second evaluation, on June 17, Pollo declared both Rohde and Schwarz and Ericsson equal winners, asking the two companies to split the contract.
However, Rohde and Schwarz took the ministry to court. Pollo then scrapped the tender procedure completely on August 29.
In Tirana’s district court, Rohde and Schwarz attacked both Pollo’s decision to order an additional technical assessment of the bids and his subsequent decision to annul the tender.
On December 9, Judge Anila Kristani ruled that the decision to contract Kordia to revaluate the bids “contradicted the legal frameworkapproved for the procurement procedure”.
The judge also ruled that – by hiring the consultant after the procurement commission had finished its evaluation – the ministry had violated the principle of equal treatment of bidders, among other matters.
In a written statement, Pollo told Balkan Insight that he contested the court ruling. He also questioned that whether Albania’s new centre-left government, which took office in September, had presented all the arguments to the court correctly.
Pollo said that had ordered a second evaluation after discovering that ORS was in cahoots with Rohde and Schwarz. “As ORS was compromised… Kordia was deemed reliable.” he said
He freely admitted that the difference in the scores between Ericsson and Rohde and Schwarz had been minimal, saying this was why the ministry had advocated a form of cooperation between the two companies.
“All the expert advice was that Ericsson had good integrator technology while Rohde and Schwarz had good transmitters,” Pollo said.
Financing had also played a role in his decision, he added. As part of their bids, the companies vying for the tender had to secure bank financing for their projects.
“Rohde and Schwarz’s project was linked to a more expensive loan while Ericsson had a cheaper one,” Pollo recalled.
“However, as there was no agreement, I annulled the procedure,” he explained.
Contesting Pollo’s allegations, a spokesperson for ORS, Michael Weber, told Balkan Insight that the company had been “a neutral consultant”.
“There never was any illegal communication,” Weber said. “We are also considering legal actions against such unbelievably accusations,” he added.
Patrizia Muehlbauer, a spokesperson for Rohde and Schwarz, said that although the company does not comment on project details, ‘we check all exports and projects for strict compliance with all current national regulations.’
Meanwhile, documents obtained by Balkan Insight show that Kordia’s parent company had previously acted as a subcontractor for Ericsson in Australia.
Kordia Ltd is a subsidiary of Kordia Group, a broadcasting and telecommunication company owned by the New Zealand government.
Kordia’s annual reports show that Ericsson awarded a contract to Kordia’s Australian subsidiary, Kordia Solutions, which supported Ericsson in a complex upgrade of Vodafone’s services in Australia.
Pollo maintained that he had had no knowledge of Kordia’s ties to Ericsson in Australia, but noted that the consultant had an “obligation to disclose it”.
The botched tender, meanwhile, has set back the efforts of the Albanian authorities to complete the transition from analogue to digital broadcasting by a self-imposed deadline of June 2015. http://www.balkaninsight.com/en/article/albania-ex-minister-rigged-tv-digital-tender
