134,000 UAH were overpaid for “dietetic” foodstuff for a hospital in Poltava

Most of Poltava citizens at least once visited the Poltava regional clinical hospital named after the greatest surgeon M.V. Sklifosofsky.

Somebody was treated here; others visited ill relatives and friends. In fact, it is the best medical institution of the region. It has modern equipment. The best doctors work here.

But food for patients here is not really good. Dietetic foodstuff? But it also can be tasty if you don’t save too much money on it. Of course, it’s not a restaurant. And people go to the hospital to be treated, not to be feed. Probably, there is not enough budget money allocated for food every month. It’s not difficult to check it out. Let’s examine two tender purchases of the hospital.

The first one is purchasing of fresh vegetables, 138,000 kg. Code: 01.12.1. Tender number: 334593. Number and date of issue: 135(737) 10.12.12.

The winner is a private entrepreneur Kuzmich S.A.

And here goes another purchase made by the Poltava regional clinic hospital.

Code: 01.11.2 – vegetables (potato, 132,000 kg).

Tender number: 334552. Number and date of issue: 135(737) 10.12.12.

The private entrepreneur Kuzmich S.A. has won again.

So, analysis of these two tender procedures to some extend explains peculiarities of dietetic foodstuff for patients of the M.V. Sklifosofsky Poltava regional clinical hospital.
