The share of purchases from small and medium-sized businesses in Moscow was 44.8% at the end of six months of 2021, the capital's government said.
Thus, Moscow is ready to meet the requirements of the federal law "On contract system in the sphere of goods, works and services procurement for state and municipal needs", which was amended last week, authorities said.
"Public procurement has always been one of the effective tools to support the economy, and increasing the share of contracts fulfilled by small and medium-sized businesses will help support these businesses during the pandemic. Moscow accounts for 15% of the total procurement of the Russian Federation: every sixth ruble in the procurement system of the country accounts for the needs of Moscow customers. Moscow government orders are fulfilled by companies from all regions of Russia, so we systematically give priority in the execution of our orders to small businesses", the words of Deputy Mayor Vladimir Yefimov are given on the mos.ru portal.
Under the new law, the share of orders for small businesses must increase from 15 to 25%. Document flow for tender procedures is transferred into electronic form, and the number of competitive methods of supplier selection is reduced to three. The main provisions of the law will come into force on 1 January 2022.
