VLADIVOSTOK, November 30 (Itar-Tass) — The pricing and public procurement system at the Russian Defence Ministry will become more transparent from year to year, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov said at a meeting with the workers of the Dalpribor plant in Vladivostok on Wednesday.
“The ministry has to learn to buy, and manufacturers - to justify their prices. Money will not be transferred to the Defence Ministry for no reason, it will have to prove and show why it needs this or that amount. Nobody will be able to hide behind secrecy,” the first deputy prime minister said.
“We have itemise in the country’s budget more than 3 trillion roubles for the state defence order and armaments modernisation program, representatives of other sectors - education, health – have even criticised the government for this,” said Shuvalov. “The president and prime minister have repeatedly emphasised that we have to deal with rearmament. The funds transfer has been started to the production facilities, but the process is complicated.”
The Dalpribor plant specialises in the production of hydro-acoustic equipment. The state order for the Defence Ministry accounts for nearly 90 percent of all its orders. In addition, the company manufactures civilian products - LED technology. In the future it is planned to open the production of wind generators here.
