Russian government adopted a bill, giving them right to determine the order of procurement of aviation and marine equipment. The bill proposes to give the government commission on import substitution new functions. In particular, the commission is invited to assign the rights to determine the specific terms of procurement – a list of goods, works and services, as well as the maximum price of the contract, beyond which customers can not conclude a contract without the approval of the government commission.
According to the current norms, state companies must coordinate with the government commission on import substitution work on projects worth more than 10 billion rubles. At the same time, as noted by the government, the new bill do not concern the subsidiaries of such legal entities. In addition, some purchases of air and sea vessels do not meet government requirements for the cost of investment projects. Organizations purchase similar goods abroad, which has a negative impact on the development of the domestic aviation and shipbuilding industry, the government believes.
“If purchases exceed certain volumes, then they must pass the approval procedure through a government commission on import substitution”, said the Deputy Finance Minister, Alexey Lavrov.
At the same time, it is proposed to extend the same rules to subsidiaries of legal entities. Concerned are only companies with state share in the authorized capital exceeding 50%, and engaged in purchasing aviation and marine equipment.
“It is in these sectors that we believe it is necessary to strengthen the policy of import substitution, supporting domestic products”, added also Lavrov.
