The procedure was initiated following an initiative received by the Commission on April 12, 2016. The initiative stated that on several public procurement procedures for obtaining geodetic services, it was established that, as of the end of 2015, the bidders submitted bids with prices that significantly exceeded the estimated value of public procurement, which accordingly, led to suspension of respective procedures.
