Withdrawal of BAE
The Ministry of Defence of the Czech Republic was informed by BAE Systems Land & Armaments L. P. on 20 September 2005 that it will withdraw from the public tender to supply new wheeled personnel carriers for the Armed Forces of the Czech Republic.
BAE Systems Land & Armaments L. P. explained its decision, noting that certain provisions of the tender, and the company’s inability to submit a viable offer by the submission deadline, would prevent it from meeting all of the requirements specified by the Czech Ministry of Defence.
The Ministry of Defence of CR has acknowledged that BAE Systems Land & Armaments L. P.’s decision was received with sufficient advance notification, and that the company’s conduct in this matter is highly regarded.
Mr. Andrej Cirtek, MoD spokesman
