Cobalt has successfully represented Helmes, an international custom software developer, in disputes regarding the public procurement process for "Development and Maintenance Services for Collection App Software" organized by Estonia's Information Technology Center of the Ministry of Finance.
According to Cobalt, "the object of this public procurement is the new collection app of Statistics Estonia, which is a universal system used for all statistical and ordered assignments with regard to private individuals [and] business entities." According to the firm, "the implementation of the system will facilitate the acceleration of the data collection process and raise its effectiveness, as well as [improving] the improvement of the data quality and decreasing the cognitive administrative load."
Helmes's successful bid in the procurement process was disputed by competing bidders OU Aktors and AS CGI Eesti. The disputes were resolved in Helmes' favor, and, according to Cobalt, the company "will be able to enter into a frame agreement with the expected value of MEUR 1.25."
