The economic offer will have less weight in the public contracts of the Board

The Governing Council of the Junta de Extremadura has approved a decree-law by which the economic offer will have less weight in the specifications of the public contracts of the regional Administration. This is intended to prevent companies that adjust their proposals from having to subsequently suffer higher prices, as is currently the case.

The Board’s spokesman, Juan Antonio González, explained that this decree-law is that the price has less weight in the award of public contracts. In this way, it is intended that the bidders are not harmed by the increase in the cost of raw materials and the general escalation suffered by all citizens in matters such as energy.

Likewise, he pointed out that this new norm regulates the downward offers that are presented to public contracts to avoid what is known as reckless low.

This decree-law is intended to help create jobs, an objective that remains a priority for the regional government. As González has highlighted, in the last year the number of unemployed has dropped by almost 20,000 people. But he has pointed out that the Board is not satisfied with these data and wants to influence the decline in unemployment and the increase in membership.

On the other hand, the Minister of Equality, Isabel Gil Rosiña, has announced the second call for the program aimed at facilitating the reconciliation of family and work life through the creation of rural toy libraries and activities for young people, within the Corresponsables Plan created by the Government .

This second call will feature two major innovations. On the one hand, its start is advanced several months. As Gil Rosiña has explained, there are municipalities that demand to implement these measures before the summer, something that the Board allows, since the only requirement is that they take place during non-school hours so as not to harm other sectors of activity.

On the other, this initiative will be carried out under the formula of a municipal economic collaboration program, with which municipalities and smaller local entities will receive the funds without the need to attend a call for aid. This will allow you to have the money without conditions and speed up the processing times when making a single payment.

The Board will allocate more than 16.6 million euros, 8.7 million for rural toy libraries, for children from 2 to 5 years old, and 7.8 million for the Have Fun Extremadura program, from 6 to 16 years old. In the latter case, it benefits from the remainder that was left over from the Corresponsables Plan last year.

“With these two programs we put at the service of the families of Extremadura the possibility of reconciling”, highlighted Gil Rosiña, who also stressed the creation of quality employment in the care sector through a universal and free service.
