Estonian state-owned real estate management company Riigi Kinnisvara AS (RKAS) has announced a procurement tender seeking a contractor to build the main headquarters of the European Agency for the Operational Management of Large-Scale IT Systems in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (eu-LISA) in Tallinn.

The construction of the building and related work are estimated to cost approximately eight million euros.

"RKAS opened the procurement tender for the contract to build the main building of the EU's IT agency with Dec. 27 as the deadline for offers," RKAS spokesperson Madis Idnurm told BNS on Friday.

"Since the contract is for the construction of the headquarters of an EU institution with stepped-up security requirements, the public procurement tender must be held under an exceptional procedure as provided for by Article 14, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Public Procurement Act, based on which tender documents were issued to previously shortlisted construction companies," Idnurm specified.

The plot on which the building will stand is situated on Vesilennuki Street in the Kalamaja neighborhood of northern Tallinn.
