19 March 2019
The Office of Electronic Communications (UKE) has completed the 2nd stage substantial evaluation of 7 projects submitted for co-financing in the 2nd round of the 3rd competition under measure 1.1 OPDP. The co-financed projects will cover 3 areas designated for intervention.
In the designated areas, 483 educational facilities and 87 472 households will be connected to broadband Internet of a speed of at least 100 Mbps. Depending on the area of intervention, the beneficiaries declared to provide coverage for 69 to 98 percent of households from among those that are possible to be covered. The total value of the co-financing received by the beneficiaries of the 2nd round of the 3rd competition amounts to over PLN 138 million.
Each and every project was assessed by three experts in terms of its compliance with the technical end economic requirements. The procedure of selection of projects for co-financing consisted in, i.a., verification of investment areas, checking the relevant output and result indicators, and evaluation whether the project technical concept meets the requirements for connecting households and educational facilities adopted for the second round of the 3rd competition.
The experts evaluated also the effectiveness of the project implementation. There were also situations, provided for in the Competition Regulations, when the applicant was requested to clarify doubts as to the content of the application.
As part of the assessment, UKE also carried out the so-called routing (determining the model of the network along with the cost estimate) for all address points declared by the applicants. The Office verified also the possible duplication of the network. This means that each of the 7 projects was thoroughly analysed in terms of the real possibilities of designing the network according to the declared course of the network.
During the assessment process, UKE regularly provided answers on the designated intervention areas.
