The Court of Auditors of the State of Paraná (TCE-PR) suspended, by means of a precautionary measure, the contract signed by the State Secretariat of Public Security of Paraná (Sesp-PR) for the purchase of 7,940 ballistic vests, valued at R$ 16.3 million.

The decision was taken due to alleged irregularities in adherence to the price registration minutes of the State of Alagoas.

The precautionary measure was granted by advisor Ivan Bonilha, who accepted a Representation of the Bidding and Contracts Law (Law No. 14,133/2021), formulated by the National Union of Defense Materials Industries (Simde).

Notes indicated by the counselor:

  • The justification for adhesion to the Alagoas price registration minutes was based on the suspension of the International Auction, but, according to the TCE-PR, the authorization for this adhesion was formalized without prior legal and technical analysis;
  • The minutes of the State of Alagoas, apparently, could not be used, as it differs from the technical specifications of the Sesp-PR auction notice nº 968/23;
  • The regularity of the purchase contract signed between the State of Paraná and the company MKU Limited on December 19, 2023, needs to be determined;
  • At the time of signing the contract, the certification of the vests purchased had already been suspended by the certifying entity, which means, according to the counselor, that the product no longer met the technical qualification requirements.

Sesp-PR was summoned by TCE-PR to inform and immediately comply with the precautionary measure.

Those responsible for the bidding were summoned to present justifications regarding the irregularities identified within 15 days.

If not revoked, the precautionary measure prevents the purchase of ballistic vests until the TCE-PR decides on the merits of the case.
