RASK successfully represents Põhja-Pärnumaa local government in procurement dispute.


RASK consulted the local government of Põhja-Pärnumaa in a dispute over a public procurement procedure for the provision of maintenance services exceeding the international threshold.


The subject of the dispute was the local government’s decision not to qualify one of the tenderers due to insufficient qualifications. The tenderer filed a challenge against this decision with the Public Procurement Review Committee, initially requesting that the decision be annulled. In subsequent court proceedings, the tenderer sought to establish the unlawfulness of the decision and claim compensation for damage caused by the decision.


RASK consulted the client in preparing a response to a cassation appeal. On 12 August 2021, the Supreme Court issued an order refusing the appeal in cassation, as a result of which all the decisions made by the Põhja-Pärnumaa local government as part of the procurement procedure entered into force.
