The announcement was made following the MoD’s cancellation in April of a EUR72 million international tender to procure four systems, which was announced in 2015 by a previous government.
P. Gajdoš: Procurement of 3D radars via a Gov-to-Gov sales agreement is the most effective solution after the unsuccessful international tender
The aim of the MOD is to procure 3D radars in order to cater for the SVK Armed Forces’specific requirements in a timely manner. Even 3 years on, the international tender has never reached a successful conclusion. Based on available analyses, the Government-to-Government (G2G) sales have proved to be the most effective and transparent method of purchasing defence equipment, insofar that deliveries and prices are guaranteed by the selling government. Most importantly, this method of procurement rules out any form of corruption.

Moreover, one of the requirements was to deliver the first 3D radar no later than the end of 2016. The failure to meet the date of delivery could be considered as discriminatory to other potential bidders, and this could be vulnerable to legal challenge. He went on to stress that even if the MOD were to announce a new tender, it could take years without a clear outcome. “We strictly proceed in accordance with valid legislation and the Government-to-Government transactions are absolutely transparent,” he added.
