Languages of publication
The commentary concerns the ruling of the Supreme Administrative Court on the Act of 28 June 2012 on the Repayment of Certain Dues to Enterprises Resulting from Implementing Awarded Public Contracts. The authors tend to conclude that the main thesis of the commented ruling of the Supreme Administrative Court, i.e. excluding the applicability of the Code of Administrative Procedure to actions taken by the Director General for National Roads and Motorways in connection with claims for payment due to subcontractors on the basis of the above mentioned Act raises important concerns about its correctness. It is debatable from the point of view of both the general structure of administrative law, and the purposes of the above mentioned Act which was to create a special procedure for repayment of dues to subcontractors. In the light of the circumstances of the adoption of the bill and its provisions, it is difficult to accept the view the adoption of which not only deprives subcontractors efficient and low-cost administrative mode to review the decision of the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA), but compels them to initiate additional civil proceedings before common courts, the subject of which will, in fact, be the examination of the correctness of operation of GDDKiA as a public authority.
