Potential bidder calls for halt to tablet auction

- +

The planned e-auction set for yesterday on the second phase of the One Tablet per Child scheme has been put off until next Friday after a potential bidder appealed to halt the bidding because it failed in the technical round. 

Haier of China filed an appeal on Wednesday with the Office of the Basic Education Commission (Obec), seeking the state to review its disqualification for the first region bidding, said a highly placed source on the One Tablet per Child committee.

Obec on Monday announced a list of qualified bidders that passed the technical round to supply 1.63 million tablets worth 4.61 billion baht.
