The members of the Workgroup having experience from 2016 when they tested possibilities of individual realization of the Project concluded that for the work of scanning all the archival documents it is necessary to engage subcontractors respectfully professional companies. This decision enlarged the scope of activities of the Workgroup and included preparation of tender documentation. At the same time having this in mind it was necessary to consider once again planned phases of the Project; preparation of the archival material for scanning and control of digital copies.
Mutual work lasting five days laid a foundation for preparation of complete tender and project documentation that would with mutual consultations be completed by the end of October 2017.
