Summary title: Petition No 0136/2019 by D.S. (Romanian), on behalf of T.S.I. SRL, on the alleged non-compliance with EU public procurement legislation by the Romanian authorities
Petition number: 0136/2019
Topics: Justice, Economic and Monetary Affairs, Competition
Name: D. S.
The petitioner states that the Romanian police has unlawfully and abusively rejected his tender for the award of a supply contract for military equipment, which led to a distortion of competition and potential public security threats. He considers that this infringes EU competition and public procurement law, which has not been adequately transposed into Romanian legislation. Moreover, the petitioner states that the Romanian courts have declined to apply the relevant EU legislation to his case. The petitioner argues that the administrative and judicial authorities in Romania systemically and unjustly refuse to apply EU law in the field of public procurement and calls on the EU institutions to scrutinise this widespread practice.
