The tender announcement in connection with the purchase of new rescue helicopters will go out in the market over the next few weeks, says Justice Minister.
Member of Parliament Jan Arild Ellingsen (Progress Party) asked the Minister of Justice a written question before Easter in which he asked the minister confirm or deny that she has stopped the tender process relating to the acquisition of new rescue helicopters, for either to make a direct defense procurement. He indicates that justification for the question fÃ¸gende: "After what I have perceived, was the tender process for new rescue helicopters continued through a tender announcement in January of this year."
Minister Grete Faremo responded to 10 April: "I can deny that the tender process relating to the acquisition of new rescue helicopters have stopped. The process is continuing according to Prp.146 S (2010-2011) "The acquisition of new rescue helicopters etc.. in the period 2012-2020, "and Parliament's handling of settings. 82 S (2011-2012) from the Justice Committee on "Procurement of new rescue helicopters etc.. in the period 2012-2020. "The bidding process will be continued at the tender announcement will go out in the market over the next few weeks."
