    European Law. Applicants and tenderers may not charge fees for the performance of the procurement procedures. Just copy costs can be charged. BVI´s are far away from Europe.

    In other parts of the world it´s called “Alibaba Culture”
    To this belong also bribes,fraudes, etc.
    Imagine I´m a car seller. What would you say if I invite you to give me an offer for buying a car from me. But first you have to pay a fee. Than you have the possibilty to get it.

    As usual the tender documents will be poorly put together with design to be clarified/altered/ammended etc – why doesn’t the government learn and pay a decent engineer a decent fee for a proper design solution that will work and stand the test of time rather than the usual shambolic F%*k up with a contractor that will charge the earth and deliver sub standard work which is not fit for purpose!!!Half the timethe government hasn’t a clue what it wants, then changes its mind and pays a massive premium to do so…..back to reality – nothing changes
