The government agency inspected seven public procurement contracts worth €14 million.

One challenged deal was signed with Mano Būstas, a subsidiary of City Service, for renovation and upkeep of heating facilities in preschools in Vilnius, worth €10,3 million. There was no need for the service, the Public Procurement Office said.

The agency also pointed to a €696,200 public toilet contract with BSS Grupė, suggesting that it not be renewed after expiration.

A €333,100 contract with Irdaiva to build a music room in one school was also singed in breach of public procurement rules, according to the agency.
