Bulgaria set to issue RFP for two patrol ships

21st December 2016 - 14:00 GMT | by Alexander Mladenov, Krassimir Grozev in Sofia


The Bulgarian Navy has signaled its readiness to issue a Request for Proposal (RfP) for the procurement of two new patrol ships, but the government crisis and changes in the public procurement legislation in Bulgaria have delayed it so far.

The RfP was originally expected to be issued until the year-end, after the Council of Ministers and Parliament gave green light to the project in June 2016 and approved a BGN 820 million (€419 million) of funding. Now the Bulgarian Navy claimed that that the RfP could be issued in the first half of 2017.
