QCOSTARICA – In Costa Rica companies who are behind in the contribution payments to the Caja Costarricense de Seguro Social (CCSS) – also known as the “Caja” – may have been participating in public tenders, something specifically forbidden.

Article 74 de la Ley Constitutiva (Constitutive Act) of the CCSS states that any individual or legal entity cannot participate in public tenders if they are not up to date with their obligations, “… but the Contraloría General de la República (Comproller’s office) interpreted this to mean they only need be up to date when the tender is awarded, not before nor after the process. “
Frente Amplio legislator Patricia Mora explained that it seems that the Comptroller “has been complacent with defaulters of the Caja, based on an interpretation that did and that in his opinion is “aberrant.

Partido Liberacion Nacional legislator, Antonio Alvaro Desandi, considers itunfair competition” with those who do pay their employers contribution. “… In the view of Partido Liberacion Nacional (PLN) legislator Antonio Alvarez Desanti, it is a “terrible precedent” that the Comptroller endorses someone who doesnt paid their obligations to the Department to participate in tenders. It’s … ‘unfair competition’ with those who do pay their employers contribution, ” he said.

Alvarez recalled that when they analyzed the proposed strengthening of the CCSS, a motion was filed to ban this practice, only allowing the participation in the various tender processes those who pay contributions, it did not receive any support, but it was announced that it would be reintroduced in the Legislative Plenary when the aforementioned project was submitted for analysis.
