"Instead of a 60-meter roll, not even 50 meters": Chernivtsi utility services canceled tender for the purchase of toilet paper
In Bukovyna, Kalynivsky Rynok utility company wanted to buy some toilet paper and napkins. And to make sure that the product will meet all the requirements, suppliers were asked to provide a sample of the product.

ProZorro noted that the requirement to provide product samples was in fact discriminatory.

Therefore, the utility company Kalynivsky Rynok took advantage of the fact that it is not a customer in the sense of the law. But this did not save the purchase: yesterday the offer of the last participant was rejected", the press service stated.
