The dispute was based on the tender for the purchase of 100 compressed gas powered intra-urban buses. Pohla & Hallmagi describes it as the biggest public tender for buses in Tallinn.
Tallinna Linnatranspordi claimed that the tender Scania Eesti made failed to comply with tender requirements. The Estonian Public Procurement Dispute Board upheld the decision of Tallinna Linnatranspordi on August 2, 2019, but that decision was overturned on September 26, 2019 by the Tallinn Administrative Court, which found that the tender of Scania Eesti had indeed been made in accordance with the applicable requirements.
The Pohla & Hallmagi team consisted of Partners Martin Mannik and Toivo Viilup.
