Asseco Central Europe communicated its intent to terminate the Contract with the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure (SFDI)
Prague, 22 January, 2020: Earlier this week, Asseco Central Europe (Asseco) communicated its intent to the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure (SFDI) to terminate the Contract on the development of the “IS EDAZ – Information System for Registration of Vehicles in the Time-Based Charge System” and the provision of associated services (hereinafter referred to as the “Contract”) in the Czech Republic without any claims resulting from the early termination of the contract. We have decided for this step because the reputation of our company has been seriously damaged. With this solution, we would like to help to solve the situation in the Czech Republic regarding the IS EDAZ.
Asseco's actions throughout the whole procurement procedure were correct and in compliance with the conditions of the contracting authority. As one of five companies, we were approached by the SFDI to participate in the procurement procedure for the development of the IS EDAZ and the provision of associated services. Our procurement offer, which was prepared in accordance with the conditions of the contracting authority, was assessed and selected by the SFDI as the winning offer, so we were invited to enter into the contract.
e have been on the market for 30 years, 15 of which we have spent building the international Asseco group that is one of the biggest software houses in Europe. We have gained the trust of our customers with the professionalism of our company and expertise of our employees. Our company has satisfied customers not only in Europe, but also on other continents. As a result of the current situation, when the reputation of our company has seriously suffered, we deem our proposal for the termination of the contractual relationship in this project inevitable.
s we are bound by confidentiality, both under the law and under the concluded contracts, our options as to how to communicate or set straight any information during the medialization of the aforementioned project are limited.
