Baku / 01.07.19 / Turan: On Sunday, June 30, a tender announcement was published in the newspaper Respublika on the purchase of a car Mercedes Benz S350 by the Executive Authority of the Kalbajar region. The post dedicated to this purchase in the social networks by the correspondent of the Turan news agency caused a wide response, as a result of which the head of the executive power of the region Agil Mammadov told the press that he was refusing this purchase.
Chief accountant, member of the tender commission of the Kalbajar District Executive Office Kazim Zamanov told Turan that 55,000 manat was allocated from the state budget for the purchase of a new car by the executive authority; therefore, plans included buying not a new car, but a used one. «Toyota Avalon is the current car of the head of EP purchased in 2008 at a price of 36,000 manat and it is already outdated. As for the brand of the planned car (Mercedes Benz S350), the choice fell on it because of its stability indicators,» K. Zamanov noted.
Turan notes that the tender announcement was illegal because it was not placed in the unified e-procurement registry.
A representative of the Kalbajar District EP said the tender announcement was planned to be placed in the unified e-procurement register today, July 1, but it is likely that the procurement plan will be changed.
The cost of Mercedes Benz S350 ranges from 131,000 to 197,000 US dollars excluding customs clearance costs.
The Kalbajar district has been under the occupation of the Armenian armed forces since April 1993. The apparatus of the Kalbajar district EP is located in the city of Ganja. In the use of the EP there are 4 service cars.
