MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
The Prosecutor’s Office of the Lagansky District of the Republic of Kalmykia carried out an inspection of the implementation of the legislation on the contract system during the implementation of the National Project “Ecology” in the activities of the administration of the Lagansky city municipality.
It was established that within the framework of the implementation of the regional project “Clean Water” of the National Project “Ecology” by the urban settlement, a notice was posted on a specialized website to hold an electronic auction for the right to conclude a contract for the reconstruction of a conduit in the town of Lagan.
Documentation of the auction was approved in violation of the law. The draft contract establishes an additional type of responsibility for the contractor: the recovery by the customer, at its discretion, of the funds provided as security. In the draft government contract there were no provisions on the maximum amount of the accrued penalty (fines, penalties) for non-performance or improper performance by the contractor of obligations, as well as on the amount of such an amount. Also, the draft contract establishes the possibility for the customer to withhold the amount of security paid in cash, which put persons who will provide a bank guarantee in a more favorable position. In this connection, the principle of ensuring competition is grossly violated.
The district prosecutor’s office responded to the violations by submitting to the head of the administration of the urban settlement a idea of bringing the guilty officials to disciplinary responsibility, which was reviewed and satisfied.
In relation to the head of the city administration, an administrative violation case was initiated under Part 4.2 of Art. 7.30 of the Administrative Code (approval of documentation about the auction in violation of the requirements provided for by the legislation of the Russian Federation). An official brought to punishment in the form of a fine.
