Slovak to English: Analysis of problematic tender process
Detailed field: Business/Commerce (general)
Source text - Slovak
Záver:
Stratégia obstarávania nebola dostatočne efektívna, lebo umožnila pri výbere pracovníkmi ZZZ vybrať aj spoločnosť, ktorá doposiaľ nedokázala prakticky zabezpečiť povinné resp. základné funkčnosti. V priebehu obstarávania bolo postačujúcou podmienkou povinné funkčnosti len deklarovať a nie preukázať schopnosť zabezpečenia ich realizácie. Prepojenie s existujúcimi informačnými systémami malo byť jednou zo základných podmienok súťaže. Ak funkcionalita nebola hlavnou podmienkou uspenia v súťaži tak je potrebne podrobne analyzovať prečo?
Translation - English
Conclusion:
The procurement strategy was not sufficiently effective, since it allowed ZZZ staff to select a company which has not to date demonstrated practical implementation of required or basic functionality. During the procurement, sufficient qualification of essential functionality was merely declared, and demonstrated ability to ensure its implementation was not shown. Interconnection with existing information systems should have been one of the basic requirements of the tender. If functionality was not the main success criterion for the tender then it is necessary to analyze why, in detail.

Článok 17 Vyššia moc

Odstavec 17.1. Zhotoviteľ nie je vystavený zmluvným pokutám, náhrade škody, alebo odstúpeniu od Zmluvy, ak jeho omeškané plnenie alebo iné neplnenie záväzkov podľa Zmluvy je výsledkom prípadu vyššej moci. Pokiaľ táto vyššia moc netrvá dlhšie než tri mesiace, predlžuje sa plnenie záväzkov o dobu trvania tejto vyššej moci.

V prípade trvania vyššej moci viac než 3 mesiace, je nutné riešiť vzniknutú situáciu vzájomnou dohodou medzi Zhotoviteľom a Objednávateľom.

Odstavec 17.2. Za okolností vyššej moci sú považované mimoriadne okolnosti, ktoré nastali nezávisle od vôle zmluvných strán a bráni im dočasne alebo trvale v plnení Zmluvou stanovených povinností a tieto okolnosti nastali po uzavretí Zmluvy a nemohli byť povinnou Zmluvnou stranou odvrátené alebo prekonané a v dobe uzavretia Zmluvy nemohli byť predvídané. Za okolnosti vyššej moci budú považované napríklad živelné pohromy, prírodné katastrofy, vojna, všeobecná mobilizácia, občianska vojna alebo generálny štrajk.

Odstavec 17.3. Ak nastane situácia vyššej moci, upozorní Zhotoviteľ neodkladne objednávateľa o takom stave , jeho príčine a jeho ukončení. Zhotoviteľ musí hľadať všetky dostupné alternatívne prostriedky pre plnenia Zmluvy, ktorému nebránia udalosti vyššej moci.

Article 17 Acts of God

Section 17.1 The Manufacturer is not subject to contractual penalty, compensatory damages or withdrawal from the Contract if its late performance or other failure of performance of obligations under the Contract results from an Act of God. So long as such Act of God does not persist longer than three months, the period for fulfilment of the contractual obligations shall be extended by the duration of this Act of God.

In the event such Act of God persists longer than 3 months, it is necessary to resolve the emergent situation via mutual agreement between the Manufacturer and the Buyer.

Section 17.2 Act(s) of God are considered exceptional circumstances which occur independent of the will of the contracting parties and impede them temporarily or permanently in the fulfilment of their contractually-established obligations, and those circumstances which arose after the execution of the Contract and could not be the responsibility of the Contracting Party to avert or surmount, and which, during the period of conclusion of the Contract, could not have been foreseen. Acts of God might include, for example, spontaneous disasters, natural catastrophes, war, general conscription, civil war or general strike.

Section 17.3 If an Act of God situation occurs, the Manufacturer shall alert the Buyer without delay about such state, its causes and its cessation. The Manufacturer must seek all available alternative resources for the fulfilment of the Contract not impeded by the occurrence of the Act of God.

YYY a ZZZ sú zaviazané dodávať autorizovanému dealerovi ním objednané vozidlá za účelom plnenia kúpnych zmlúv medzi autorizovaným dealerom a konečným spotrebiteľom (zákazníkom).
Autorizovaný dealer je zaviazaný vynaložiť úsilie k predaju zmluvného tovaru v množstve dohodnutom pre jednotlivé roky. Ak autorizovaný dealer zistí, že pravdepodobne nesplní záväzok predať minimálne ročné množstvo, oznámi uvedené ZZZ. ZZZ môže požadovať a odporučiť, aby autorizovaný dealer prijal rozumné opatrenia k zlepšeniu svojej činnosti. Autorizovaný dealer takto môže od XXX získať rady pre zlepšenie predaja.
Autorizovaný dealer odoberá zmluvný tovar od YYY a ZZZ na základe jednotlivých objednávok, ktoré urobil prostredníctvom elektronického objednávkového systému.
Dealer prostredníctvom elektronického objednávkového systému objednáva požadované vozidlá u YYY. Kúpna zmluva medzi YYY a autorizovaným dealerom vzniká potvrdením objednávky alebo priamo dodaním objednaného tovaru. YYY objednávku spracuje, vystaví na dané auto pro forma faktúru a po jej uhradení autorizovaným dealerom dá pokyn colnému skladu kde sa vozidlo nachádza aby vybavil všetky potrebné náležitosti a auto dodal jednotlivým autorizovaným dealerom. V cene motorových vozidiel sú zahrnuté náklady na poistenie a dopravu na miesto určenia.
Translation - English
YYY and ZZZ are obligated to supply the authorized dealer with the vehicles it orders, in fulfillment of purchase agreements between the authorized dealer and the final user (the customer).
The authorized dealer is obligated to expend effort toward the sale of contracted goods in stipulated quantities each year. If an authorized dealer discovers that it probably cannot fulfill its responsibility to sell its minimum annual quota, it is required to inform ZZZ. ZZZ may then demand and direct that the authorized dealer take reasonable measures to increase its sales activity. The authorized dealer may thus receive advice from XXX on how to increase its sales.
The authorized dealer takes delivery of goods from YYY and ZZZ pursuant to individual orders, which are made by means of an electronic ordering system.
Through the electronic ordering system, the dealer orders the required vehicles from YYY. The purchase agreement between YYY and the authorized dealer arises through confirmed orders or directly upon delivery of the ordered goods. YYY processes an order, issues a pro-forma invoice for the specific vehicle, and, after its payment by the authorized dealer, issues a directive to the customs warehouse where the vehicle is stored so that all necessary duties can be satisfied, and the automobile delivered to the particular authorized dealer. Freight charges, insurance, and transport to the required location are included in the prices of the motor vehicles.
