“7 months after the start of the project “For Fair Procurement” we can say with confidence that this is a real and effective mechanism to find the illegal procurement” - Co-chair of All-Russian People’s Front, “OPORA RUSSIA” President A. BRECHALOV said to the President Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin met with activists of All-Russian People’s Front in Novo-Ogaryovo. The main topics of discussion were the implementation of “May decrees” of the President and the implementation of anti-corruption project of “For Fair Procurement”, which monitors purchases for state and municipal needs. Particular attention was paid to the implementation of social objectives, including healthcare and utilities.

A report on the work done in the frames of  the projects “For Fair procurement” and “For a fair and efficient economy” was made by Co-chairman of All-Russian People’s Front, President of All-Russian Non-Governmental Organization of Small and Medium Business “OPORA RUSSIA” Alexander BRECHALOV.

“7 months after the start of the project “For Fair Procurement” we can say with confidence that this is a real and effective mechanism to find the illegal procurement. Since September 1, 2013 331 questionable purchase the amount of 150 billion rubles was identified. 38 purchases amounting to 32.9 billion rubles were eliminated. Citizens are actively involved in the project. They gave us the idea to create “extravagance index”, which is liked by regional leaders.

Citizens themselves form the agenda. We get a lot demands to consider the sale of state property. We have worked hard in this direction.

In addition, we have now created a separate working group to oversee the publication of officials’ income declarations because citizens are active and expect an appropriate response. Citizens, who believe in our project, have the right to receive information.”

Vladimir Putin asked to formulate amendments and promised to start the process of introducing changes.
