Question for written answer E-001468-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Enrique Guerrero Salom (S&D)

 Subject:  Complaint CHAP(2017)03096 to DG GROW
 Answer in writing 

On 26 September 2017, the Madrid City Councillor, Mercedes González, filed a complaint against the sale made by the real estate company Empresa Pública Municipal de Vivienda y Suelo, S.A. (EMVS) of over 1 860 protected dwellings and other assets, up to 5 315 publicly owned buildings in total, to the holding company Fidere, S.A.

The audit conducted by the Madrid Chamber of Auditors on 30 June 2016 reported that various binding principles had been breached by EMVS as the awarding authority, including principles of publicity, free access to tenders, free competition, transparency, confidentiality and equal treatment for potential bidders.

There was also a failure to comply with the conditions set out in European legislation on public procurement: specifically, there was no tender document, trading desk, bid price or criteria for assessing offers, which would have voided the sale of these public buildings.

It thus appears that European Union directives on this matter have been breached.

Can the Commission say what stage the complaint (reference number CHAP(2017)03096 and registered by the Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs) is currently at?
