The use of standard documentation allows you to save budget funds.

In Moscow in 2021, 76 percent of government purchases worth 700 billion rubles were carried out using standard documentation, said the Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Efimov.

“Moscow has been standardizing procurement since 2015 — it approves standard forms of documents for the most popular procurement items and uniform requirements that are understandable to all participants. Government customers in the capital use 367 sets of standard tender documentation,” the Deputy Mayor explained.

Uniform standards ensure the transparency of procurement, increase competition, and ensure greater efficiency in spending budget funds. The use of standard documentation by city customers saves about 10 percent of the budget.

“In 2021, 81 sets of documentation were approved. Of these, 28 percent is in urban procurement, 21 percent is in procurement for citywide needs, 20 percent is in property and transport procurement, 19 percent is in healthcare, and 12 percent is in information technology, social security, and education.” – noted the Minister of the Government of Moscow, head

Department of Economic Policy and Development Kirill Purtov.

At the end of December last year, the interdepartmental working group to verify the validity of declared needs approved 17 new sets of standard documentation. Among them are “Supply of compressed natural fuel gas for internal combustion engines”, “Supply of medical furniture”, “Supply of pacemakers”, “Performance of works on environmental rehabilitation of territories and water bodies”, “Provision of services for the maintenance and / or repair of river vessels” , “Supply of technical means of rehabilitation for the disabled”.

According to Kirill Purtov, in 2022 it is planned to develop 44 sets of standard documentation and bring the volume of standardized purchases to 80 percent of regular purchases carried out in Moscow.
