Last Year, the Supplier Portal Recorded Over 625,000 Procurements

Over the course of five years, the annual procurement volume on the Supplier Portal has doubled, reaching 100 billion rubles in 2023, according to Vladimir Efimov, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations.

"The Supplier Portal is popular among both government customers and members of the business community. For the former, it facilitates the procurement of high-quality products at competitive prices, while for the latter, it serves as a platform to find partners and expand their sales geography. The platform's popularity is confirmed by statistics: in one year, over 625,000 procurements amounting to 100 billion rubles were conducted on the Supplier Portal. Over the past five years, the annual procurement volume has doubled," noted Vladimir Efimov.

The number of entrepreneurs on the portal has reached 325,000, with more than 30,000 suppliers registering on the resource in 2023. These include commercial organizations, individual entrepreneurs, self-employed citizens, and individuals. Today, the platform serves the operational needs of over 56,000 government and municipal customers from 40 regions of Russia.

"Capital customers' procurement volume remains consistently high. In the past year, they procured goods, services, and work on the Supplier Portal worth 45 billion rubles. Moscow most frequently acquired construction, household, information technology, and medical products, household and office equipment, communication devices and electronics, software, as well as educational services. The contract value for these categories exceeded 14 billion rubles," explained Kirill Purto, Head of the Moscow Department of Competitive Policy.

Among other regions, the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and Perm Krai lead in terms of procurement volume, with contracts totaling five and 4.4 billion rubles, respectively. The Novgorod Oblast and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug – Yugra also actively participate, with their contracts amounting to 1.7 billion rubles last year.

The Moscow Department of Information Technologies pointed out that existing services on the platform are regularly optimized, and new tools are introduced for users' convenience. For instance, in 2023, a comparison functionality for technically complex goods was added to the catalog. This feature allows users to view all or differing characteristics of products on a single page, helping customers choose the most suitable option while enabling suppliers to analyze the demand for their products more comprehensively.

The Supplier Portal was established in 2013 to automate small-scale procurements. The product catalog on the Supplier Portal includes 2.6 million unique items. Approximately 1,500 contracts are concluded on the resource daily.

To support users in Russian regions, representative offices are being opened where specialists provide training on the platform, address questions from customers and suppliers, conduct face-to-face meetings, gather suggestions for improving functionality, and help resolve technical issues. Users can also reach out to the support service via a toll-free nationwide number: 8 800 303–12–34 (free for calls from other cities) or submit inquiries on the Supplier Portal.

The development of electronic business services aligns with the objectives of the National Project "Digital Economy."
