Motieka & Audzevicius has successfully represented the Administration of Lithuania's Plunge District Municipality in a public procurement case.
The Administration of the Plunge District Municipality ("the Administration"), as contracting authority, is conducting a public procurement process relating to a street reconstruction project in the city of Plunge. The project, which is valued at over EUR 2.2 million, will be financed by the EU Structural Funds.
Motieka & Audzevicius reports that the dispute between two tenderers and the contracting authority arose when the Administration decided to reject their tenders as noncompliant with the requirements set out in the contract documents.
The excluded tenderers, objecting to the decision, filed a lawsuit in Klaipeda Regional Court, requesting interim measures. The Court upheld the claim and required the Administration to suspend its procurement procedures. In response, Motieka & Audzevicius submitted a request to annul those interim measures.
According to Motieka & Audzevicius, "the Court of Appeal of Lithuania agreed with the arguments set out in the request, and the interim measures were annulled."
The Motieka & Audzevicius team consisted of Partner Jovitas Elzbergas, Senior Associate Valentas Mitrauskas, and Associate ELvina Jurciukonyte.
