OOO «SIE of V.V. Dokuchaev Soil Science Institute» is one of the leading companies in the field of engineering surveys ina construction industry. Highly qualified specialists, advanced equipment, necessary permits - all combine to execute works on engineering-geological, engineering and surveying, engineering-hydrometeorological surveys, as well as works on eco-design and other types of work on a timely basis and to the highest standard.
In the fulfilling of obligations under the contract, OOO «SIE of V.V. Dokuchaev Soil Science Institute» had slightly exceeded the time limit. The delay had been caused by the delay in providing necessary information made by the city archives, and the delay in the review and approval of a design documentation made by the Committee for Architecture and Urban Development, without which the performance of the contract would be impossible.
It is obvious, that the delay in the execution of the obligations under the Public contract had not occurred due to the Contractor's fault.
Nevertheless, the Customer withdrew from the contract unilaterally and sent the appropriate request to the Office of the Federal Antimonopoly Service in Saint Petersburg and put the reputation of OOO «SIE of V.V. Dokuchaev Soil Science Institute» at risk.
The well-timed appeal to the Legal Business Solutions Law Firm allowed to protect the companies` interests, to avoid the adverse consequences of the current situation. It also allowed drawing attention of the regulatory authorities to the fact, that customers openly demonstrate their lack of interest in the subject of the contract and ignore the provisions of the contract system on termination procedure in their efforts to terminate the contract with the «undesirable» suppliers. Moreover, the antitrust authorities must not pander to such public customers and include information about the executors of state contracts in the Register of Bad-faith Suppliers, depriving them of the opportunity to participate in public procurement for two years and the realization of its full potential as a business entity.
