The contract stipulates that EADS is to provide surveillance and security equipment worth 650 million euros and includes the possibility of a sub-contract worth 350 million euros.

The German company is to distribute equipment for the security of 3,147 kilometers of the border and will also take charge of coordinating the modernization of border police equipment, technical training centers, helicopters and ships.

The contract is one of the most controversial deals of the former government.

Media, President Traian Basescu and several current officials criticized the former government's decision to accept the TETRAPOL system for border security, which is not generally accepted by the EU, being considered too expensive and inefficient.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Calin Popescu Tariceanu decided to make the contract public and to renegotiate some of its clauses and its estimated costs.

Information on the MAI website states the contact will be renegotiated as several border security programs, financed by the EU, cover the same works as the EADS contract.

On the other hand, the contract only covers the border in six counties and not all nine of the future EU border after 2007. The most sensitive area, the border with Ukraine (Satu Mare, Maramures and Suceava counties) is not covered, the MAI said.
