Healthcare ministry violates competition protection law

Sverdlovsk Region division of Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service declared the regional Healthcare Ministry guilty of violating the Competition Protection Act.

The legal proceedings were instituted on the basis of the data provided by Russia’s Investigative Committee as to the ministry buying some medical equipment at overpriced rates in 2008.

The winner was Technointorg that offered Toshiba computer tomographs for the total price of 191.19m RUR.

The applications were also placed by Stomax (with the offer of Siemens tomographs for 170m RUR) and Unix Medical Company (with the offer of GE tomographs for 179m RUR); both companies’ applications were dismissed

Sverdlovsk Region division of Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service also detected that the Healthcare Ministry official approved of such technical and functional application requirements for the open tomograph delivery tender that only Toshiba tomographs could possibly meet.
