MIL OSI – Source: Russia – Prosecutor Generals Office – Headline: In the Orenburg region, after the intervention of the prosecutor’s office, the municipal customers returned about 1 million rubles of debts to entrepreneurs under the contracts
In the course of a personal reception conducted in November 2017 in Orenburg, Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Sergei Zaitsev was approached by three representatives of small businesses who had been waiting for payment of the executed municipal contracts for a long time.
Organized on behalf of the Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, it was established by prosecutorial inspections that 17 municipal customers of the Orenburg region committed gross violations of the procedure for making settlements with counterparties, which had a very negative impact on the results of economic activities of entrepreneurs.
Orenburg Oblast Prosecutor’s Office immediately took measures to restore law and protect the rights of entrepreneurs.
In particular, one of the individual entrepreneurs concluded with the local administration contracts for cleaning roads from snow and landscaping for a total of 412 thousand rubles. Despite the timely fulfillment by the entrepreneur of obligations under contracts, the customer has not fulfilled its obligations under the agreement since June 2017. In this connection, a presentation has been submitted to the head of the district.
In the Perevolotsky District, on the initiative of the prosecutor’s office, an inter-departmental meeting was held on the state of legality in the area of settlements for executed contracts with the participation of the government, customers and the business community. In addition, two views have been submitted to the local self-government bodies, cases involving administrative offenses have been initiated against two officials.
As a result of the measures taken, unscrupulous customers repaid the existing debt to three business representatives for a total of almost 1 million rubles.
The issues of observance of the rights of entrepreneurs in the implementation of settlements under state and municipal contracts in the constituent entities of the Russian Federation in the Privolzhsky Federal District are under the control of Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation Sergei Zaitsev.
