In Moscow, 9 out of 10 public procurements are conducted using standard documentation

In Moscow, by the end of 2023, sets of standard tender (auction) documentation have been developed for 90 percent of regular purchases of city customers. This was reported by Maria Bagreeva, Minister of the Moscow City Government, Head of the Department of Economic Policy and City Development, which is part of the Complex of Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations of the capital.

The city has been working on procurement standardization since 2015. In the course of it, standard forms of documents on the most demanded subjects of procurement are approved and unified requirements understandable for all participants of procurement of the city are established. As of the end of 2023 in the Unified Automated Information System for Trading there are 456 sets of standard documentation, which are regularly updated depending on the needs of customers and changing legislation.

According to the Minister, the unified standards have made it possible to increase the transparency of procurement procedures, nullify the risks of their appeal, increase the number of procurement participants and save budget funds. In 2023, as part of this work, 30 sets of standard documentation for procurement of goods, works and services were approved. Of these, nine sets fall on the sphere of municipal economy, eight - on the sphere of health care, eight - on the maintenance and operation of municipal property and transportation, five sets - on purchases for city-wide needs.

In 2024 it is planned to complete the work started last year on standardization of all goods purchased by city customers in the capital. For each category of goods will be formed directories of characteristics, the use of which will ensure the accuracy and reliability of requirements to the products purchased for the needs of the city, added Maria Bagreeva.
