Macri former staff are now Metrobus contractors
Buenos Aires, May 23, 2012
Horacio Blot and Guillermo Yampolsky are two former officials of Macri government, whose companies increased their contracts with the City of Buenos Aires, in transport and urban planning.
Both are founders of companies Ingeniería en Relevamientos Viables SA [Viable Engineering Surveys] (IRV) and American Traffic (AT), which are linked to the work of consultants and works in transportation.
The contracts of these companies with the government of the City were multiplied after their founders leave their positions as public officials in the Buenos Aires government.
“Horacio Blot, director of the company, served as Undersecretary for Traffic and Transport from that year 2000 until 2004. Before his departure, Guillermo Yampolsky, president of AT and IRV was hired as ‘traffic advisory’ by the city government,” The newspaper La Nacion said.
Yampolsky was then appointed Director of Transportation when Jorge Telerman came to the management and was ranked for two years.
This former official never left his private practice while serving in the public area and when he left office, a few months later his companies had a lot more contracts with the City, receiving at least 18 in the last four years by an amount exceeding $ 6 million (Argentine pesos).
In addition, IRV is one of the companies making up the consortium responsible for auditing the electronic ticket, while the city government rejected for the job to a prestigious international consulting firm that had made an offer 25% cheaper.
La Nacion also reports that “IRV was hired to conduct a study to design a network of BRT (Bus Rapid Transport) [or Metrobus] like the government began implementing on Juan B Justo Avenue. Once the project was launched, AT won two tenders to provide materials for Metrobus for more than $ 1.5 million.”
