After an investigation carried out by the Technical Secretariat for Institutional Responsibility and Support, the Social Security Fund ( CSS ) determined that the official of the entity who appeared as a director of the company Jers Medical, did not incur a conflict of interest.
The internal investigation for the possible commission of breaches of ethics began after the company, where an official and a former official of the CSS worked, participated in a process of purchasing tests to detect COVID-19 in 2020.
According to the CSS, all the participations of this company occurred in 2020, and at the time the tender in question was held, the company had another board of directors, different from the one currently referred to. In addition, the people investigated have no direct or indirect relationship with the joint table that is made up of the Ministry of Health, the CSS, the Comptroller, and led by the General Directorate of Public Procurement.
In previous days, the CSS authorities indicated that a detailed report will be delivered to the National Authority for Transparency and Access to Information (Antai).
