SBU prevents embezzlement of 14 million UAH of state funds in the ATO area
The SBU officers prevented money misappropriation by the state enterprise during state procurement.
The enterprise which deals with exploration of mineral resources decided to make a procurement of necessary raw materials amounting to more than fourteen million UAH. By results of the tender auction two companies were named the winners.
During the check the law enforcers established that the businessmen didn’t submit to the auction committee any documentation on compliance with the qualifying requirements of the tender. Nor the business confirmed the quality of the products and their origin, which is the ground to reject the application.
In order not to allow economic loss to the State the SBU informed the management of the state enterprise about violations at the auction and impossibility of signing contracts with commercial structures. As a result, the auction committee canceled the decision of announcing these companies the winners.
The Security Service of Ukraine and appropriate supervising bodies strengthened their control over the tender auction procedure at the state enterprise.
