Submission of a letter requesting correction of the conditions for the implementation of the temporary art installation with author Krassimir Terziev at the "Mausoleum" site.
The main requests concern (1) the status of the contract for the implementation of the project, and (2) correction of the financial framework imposed by the unpredictable at the time of application (20.09.2021) inflationary processes (as of 21.06.2022), which make the implementation of the project in the current conditions unrealistic.
Regarding the contract, the opinion is that formulated in this way, as a contract for commercial activities, represents an unnecessary administrative, financial and accounting burden for the author/executor of the project. The request is that the contract be reformulated in the spirit of not-for-profit subsidy in the field of Culture.
Regarding the financial framework of the project: The budget of the project was prepared and is part of the project documentation with which I appeared at the competition within the stipulated time - September 30, 2021. We all know how many waves of turbulent processes have occurred on a global scale within the framework of the past six months so far, from the post-Covid supply crisis to the inflationary processes associated with the war in Ukraine.
I have spent the last two months (May and June 2022) looking for alternative production bids to meet the original bid price, engaging manufacturers of all calibers, but unfortunately without success. The request is for a 15% budget increase. Attached in the letter is an updated budget and up-to-date offers from two companies able and willing to execute the project at the time.
