Not unexpectedly, the spokesperson for the PP in Nerja has accused the manager of the Nerja Caves Foundation, Ángel Ramírez, of ‘serious irregularities’ relating to the awarding of the contract for the equipping of the museum following the news that one of the unsuccessful bidders has now launched an appeal in the Administrative Court.
As far as we can gather, the serious irregularities relate to Article 10 of the Contract Law.
The company Playmedia received notice on Thursday June 10th to make corrections to certain documentation relating to their bid. The time allowed for such actions is three working days.
The company delivered the amended documents on Tuesday June 15th which, according to the Council, was too late and should have automatically excluded Playmedia from further participation in the bidding process.
Very serious irregularity indeed, and how astute of the company filing the appeal to have discovered(?) it. Rather unfortunate, however, that the irregularity was not discovered until after Playmedia had begun to carry out the contract as, now, it could cause legal wranglings and an unwanted delay to the completion of the museum.
