Kay-Sa İnşaat company based in Muş won.
CONFIDENTIAL AGREEMENT DOUBT
Chairman of the Board of İZBAŞ Eyüp Sevimli, who made evaluations about the result of the tender, which is realized in accordance with the State Tender Law No. 2886, is the "openness and ensuring competition” completed without complying with the principles stated.
İZBAŞ, although it has submitted a bid of 551 million TL, which corresponds to approximately 35% more of the estimated value of 435 million TL tendered with a sealed envelope, in the next stage after the closed bids are opened, the other 3 companies are paid very low prices. Noting that they made ostensible increases, Sevimli, “Even though we made a 35% more closed bid for one item, in the second stage where they remained as three companies, two firms did not increase even 0.2%. The tender was awarded to Kay-Sa İnşaat Ltd.Şti. remained on it. This table clearly shows that without the need for any further research, the offer submitted by İZBAŞ firm was learned through fraudulent means and according to this offer, it was decided to exclude İZBAŞ company from the tender by submitting 3 proposals, the conditions of competition were abolished through collusion.” said.
“FREE ZONE OPERATOR NO EXPERIENCE”
The land, which was put up for sale with the tender, was declared as a "free zone" in the Official Gazette, noting that the company that will be the owner of the land has to operate this land as a free zone operator, Sevimli said, made the following assessment: “Outside İZBAŞ, two of the three companies that entered the tender are building contractors, and the other it is seen that it is a company operating in the defense industry. Not aware of the free zones legislation, which is one of the most complex legislation of our country; not ready for this process with its financial structure, staff and institutional structure; Let alone managing a free zone, companies that have not even done business in a free zone can cause a great public loss, with a long-term perspective in this land it is possible to foresee that they will prevent domestic and foreign capital investments that want to invest.”
46 PERCENT UNDER RAMSAR LIMITATION
Eyüp Sevimli is a land of 1 million 501 thousand square meters, which is a "field" and does not carry out any agricultural activities. Within the scope of the International Ramsar Convention, 690 thousand square meters, which corresponds to 46 percent, reminded that it was a “constructed area”.
Aydın Pehlivan, Mayor of Menemen, informing that they have requested in writing to cancel the tender by using the authority given by the law as the delivery supervisor, Sevimli said, continued his words as follows:
“The savings to be made on this immovable property owned by the Menemen Municipality, it is limited under the Ramsar Convention Production activities will not be carried out in the 690 thousand square meter section, which corresponds to 46 percent of the land, In this section, only administrative and storage buildings can be built and this part of the land can be used as a stockpile.
The part of the land to be used as a free zone is it is approximately 810 thousand square meters, which corresponds to 54 percent. This situation was notified and notified to all companies that purchased the tender specifications by the Municipality of Menemen against signature. The company that won the tender, by making an initiative before our Ministry of Commerce, must sign an Operational Agreement within one month in order to 'operate the land as a Free Zone'. In this challenging process, the financing structure, staff and being ready as an institutional structure; must not cause any public harm. Using the sense of responsibility of Mr. Menemen Mayor Aydın Pehlivan and the authority given to him by the law, we demand that the tender be canceled because the competitive environment and healthy price increase could not be achieved. If the tender is not cancelled, we will seek our legal rights in the Administrative Court.”
