MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Entrepreneurs and organizations that are ready to provide social services to citizens at the expense of budgetary funds will be competitively selected to receive state support. The rules for its holding were approved by the Chairman of the Government Mikhail Mishustin.
Since September 2020, conditions have been created for non-profit organizations and individual entrepreneurs that allow them to receive subsidies for the provision of social services to the population. State support is provided to organizations that, among other things, are engaged in social services for the population, provide sanatorium-resort treatment, provide palliative care, and help in finding a job. Attracting business to the social sphere creates equal conditions for the public and private sectors, helps to improve the quality and availability of the services themselves.
The procedure for selecting applicants for subsidies, their rights and obligations are spelled out in detail in the new law “On state (municipal) social order for the provision of state (municipal) services in the social sphere.” The new resolution defines the rules for the competitive selection, including the procedure for the work of the competitive commission. The tender announcement will be published on the single portal of the budgetary system of the Russian Federation. A special commission will evaluate the applicants using a point system. Its composition and work regulations, as well as the criteria for evaluating participants, will be determined by the federal ministry, which is responsible for providing citizens with one or another social service. In most cases, these are the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Labor. Based on the results of the competitive selection, the volume of the provision of each social service will be distributed among the winners.
Earlier, the Government approved the rules for the formation and maintenance of the register of performers of public services in the social sphere, which will allow for a preliminary selection of organizations and immediately weed out unscrupulous performers. The purpose of such accounting is to protect the rights and interests of citizens, as well as to stimulate businesses to provide quality services.
The document will be published.
