The Presidency wants to conclude a framework-agreement on changing and reconditioning of the awards and insignias that the Head of State can confer, one of the reasons being the introduction of the royal crown in Romania’s coat of arms. The estimated value of the tender is more than RON 2.5 million.
“As a result of the coming into force of law no.146/2016, amending law no.102/1992 on the state’s coat of arms and seal, all awards currently in use must be transformed in line with the updated model of the coat of arms,” reads the tender book, against the backdrop in which, on 11 July 2016, President Klaus Iohannis promulgated law no.146/2016 which reintroduced in Romania’s coat of arms the crown placed on the eagle’s head.
At the same time, against the backdrop in which the models for women were abrogated for all awards, the winner of the tender will have to change the awards for women, because the models were abrogated by law no.233/2007.
“Considering that the Presidential Administration manages decorations that have fallen into disrepair since the date of their manufacturing (for instance through the oxidation of their metallic parts or through detachment in the case of those made of enamel), these insignias must be reconditioned and brought back to their initial look,” the tender book reads.
According to the announcement posted on the SEAP (Electronic System for Public Procurements), the estimated value of transforming the awards stands at RON 2,616,000, VAT not included.
