On January 21, 2022 a public consultation will take place on the planned procurement under the project “The purchase of new design uniforms and their components for State Police officials for a period of four years”. This consultation will be organised in cooperation with the Federation of Security and Defense Industries of Latvia (FSDI Latvia) to attract the widest possible range of potential suppliers at both national and international level.
"Uniforms are the most visible part of the identity of the State Police... Our aim is to provide colleagues with high-quality, comfortable and functional uniforms. In view of the fact that the planned procurement is specific and very large, we want to attract the widest possible number of tenderers in order to reach the best results and get the best product. The police are open to dialogue and the search for successful solutions, with a view to concluding a very important contract for the procurement of uniforms to the State Police in 2022," said Armands Ruks, Chief of the State Police.
According to Section 18, Paragraph two of the Public Procurement Law, prior to the commencement of the procurement, the commissioning party may organise a consultation with suppliers in order to prepare the procurement and inform suppliers of the procurement plan and requirements.
Accordingly, the State Police invites representatives of Latvian and international companies to participate in the meeting in order to discuss issues of planned procurement and to hear proposals from potential service providers for successful procurement.
The public consultation will take place on January 21, 2022 at 10.00 – 12.00 in Ciekurkalna linija 1, k-4, 3rd floor, in epidemiologically secure conditions on site and on the Webex virtual platform. Potential participants should apply by 18 January HERE.
