Bulgaria's competition authority said that it has dismissed a complaint filed by local company Interprom related to a 116.7 million levs ($67.6 million/59.7 million euro) tender of Sofia Municipality for maintenance and current repair of roads in the city. The regulator found that the municipality's decision to set a requirement for candidates to prove that they have access to an asphalt plant with output capacity of 100 tonnes per hour is in line with the existing legal framework, the Commission for Protection of Competition said in its decision on Wednesday. The requirement also allows a company to submit an offer using its own asphalt plant, and at the same time sign a contract with another candidate in the tender, under which the second company will use the same plant. However, such an arrangement will only be accepted if the asphalt plant can meet the needs of both companies. The tender, launched in September, is divided into seven lots, each of them for a four-year contract for maintenance and current repair of part of the city's road infrastructure.
