The construction of Split Airport’s new passenger terminal is likely to be delayed again after the Croatian State Commission for the Supervision of Public Procurement found irregularities with the selection of the project’s contractor and ordered for new tender procedures to take place. Last week, the General Manager of Split Airport, Lukša Novak, announced that work on the 59.3 million euro project would begin in late October following numerous delays. However, this is now unlikely to materialise. It is claimed that the selected contractor, Zagreb-based Tehnika and Slovenia’s Kolektor Koling, had submitted a bid which had a number of spelling and grammatical errors, which also included Slovenian words. The State Commission concluded that, as a result, the documentation was not fully in Croatian as required in the tender rules. Previously, two bidders had complained to the regulator of irregularities during the tender procedure.
