Hi-Tech Park dropped idea to buy car worth one billion


The Hi-Tech Park Administration decided not to buy a luxury off-road vehicle.

It looks like Hi-Tech Park head Valery Tsepkala is going to be left without a car of prestige.

A few hours after posting at charter97.org website the information about the immodest purchase, the government agency “Administration of the Hi—Tech Park” cancelled the procedure of purchase of a luxury crossover SUV 4LBOGA Audi Q7 3.0 TDI at a price of 1.1 billion Belarusian rubles, or $110,000 dollars.

The message about cancellation of the procurement procedure has been posted at the website of the National Center for Marketing and Price Study today morning.

As charter97.org has informed earlier, the Hi-Tech Park had put out tender for purchase of the luxury vehicle. The tender documents were signed by Hi-Tech Park head Valery Tsepkala personally.

The Hi-Tech Park Administration is a government agency that doesn't have the right to buy cars at a price higher than 25,000 euros. However, it is possible to bypass the ban by buying a car “at own expense”.
