A Red Flag is a fact, event, or set of circumstances, or other information that may indicate a potential legal compliance concern for illegal or unethical business conduct, particularly with regard to corrupt practices and non-compliance with anti-corruption laws.
Procurement takes place with one single competitor. The Albanian law does allow for such procedures, but what such procedures often demonstrate, more than just lack of competition, is criteria and application deadlines that are obviously in favor of a certain company (clientelism). Such tenders deserve to be considered exposed to risk.
Tenders consisting of more than 800 thousand Albanian Lekļæ½ (ALL) and less than 72 hours available for the participants to prepare an offer. This time is insufficient for compiling the required documentation and for preparing an offer with technical specifications. There is high probability of the tender having been earlier exposed in such cases to clientelist companies.
