Since 2015, budget savings have amounted to almost 267 billion rubles.

In 2021, the Moscow budget managed to save 90.7 billion rubles thanks to the examination of the initial maximum price of contracts in public procurement. This was announced by the Minister of the Government of Moscow, head Department of Economic Policy and City Development Kirill Purtov.

“Over the past year, checking the initial maximum prices of contracts concluded for the needs of customers in the city of Moscow, gave 88.4 billion rubles of budget savings. About another 2.3 billion rubles were saved thanks to inspections by an interdepartmental working group. In total, over 5.3 thousand conclusions were issued by experts in 2021,” he said.

Examination of prices in contracts is carried out by Analytical Center of Moscow. The exception is purchases for current repairs, landscaping, pedestrian zones, demolition, local events, repairs and restoration. Over the past year, the center’s analysts issued more than 4.6 thousand conclusions on contracts for a total of 867.6 billion rubles, which made it possible to save over 76.4 billion rubles.

“Over 34,600 expert opinions have been issued since 2015, over the entire period of examination of purchase prices, budget savings amounted to almost 267 billion rubles,” Kirill Purtov added.

Examination of contract prices is an effective tool for optimizing budget expenditures. The audit is carried out in respect of contracts in the amount of 10 million rubles or more, if the purchase takes place within the framework of federal law No. 44-FZ, and in respect of contracts in the amount of 50 million rubles or more in the case of procurement under federal law No. 223-FZ.
