The indicator tells if the actual duration of the evaluation of the bids (i.e. the period between the opening until the the sending of the notice on the results of the procedure) - extension included - exceeds the legal maximum. Hungarian tender notices based on the new legal provisions do not contain the relevant field any more, therefore this indicator was inactivated.
This indicator indicates risk if bids are not opened in public AND/OR pages are missing from one or more bids AND/OR changes to the bid prices and bid security list are handwritten AND/OR members of the bide evaluation committee [BEC] are present or participating AND/OR The attendance sheet lacks original signatures of the company representatives supposedly present at the ceremony
This redflag indicates risk if a questionable “consultant” or “middleman” is involved in the biddingAND/OR project officials and the favored bidder communicate (e.g., by email) or socialize during the bidding period
Not publishing the call for tenders in the official journal increases the probability of single received and valid bids and the winner’s contract share in every regression. Therefore the indicator's value is set 0, if the call for tender was published in official journal and 1, if no call for tender was published in official journal
Every non-open procedure type carries a higher corruption risk than open procedures in terms of single received and valid bids and winner’s contract share. Therefore developers set the indicator's value 0 , if there is ano open procedure, 1, if there is an invitation procedure, 2, if there is a negotiation procedure, and 3, if there are other procedures (e.g. competitive dialogue). Indicator's value is 4, if procedure type is missing/erroneous.
