Ukraine’s Parliament approves amendments to the regulation on public bidding appeals
The law #5309 that got 241 votes of Ukrainian MPs is set to establish a new state office for appeals on public bidding violations.
According to the law updates, Ukraine’s Anti-Monopoly Committee is required to set up a 3-member Commission to address such claims and appeals.
The regulation will enable online appeal applications and digital catalogues to track ongoing processes.
Lodging an appeal on public bidding results, an applicant will be required to provide valid evidence on violation of procedures and bidders rights. This is set to become a deterrent to unfounded and excessive appeal practices.
Among other amendments, the law updates the list of regulated services and announcement time frames on simplified public bids.
It also amends the law ‘On preventing corruption” listing public bidding appeals’ officials as ones claiming ‘high-responsibility’ status.
