MOSCOW, April 20. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) last year revealed about 100 violations of the state defense order contracts’ terms, FAS deputy head Maxim Ovchinnikov told TASS in an interview.
"As regards violations of the government contract terms - it’s article 14.55 of the Code of Administrative Offences (violation of the terms of the state defense order contract or the terms of a contract concluded for implementing the state defense order) - there were about 80-100 such violations last year committed by both the government customers and the contractors. I mean the administrative rulings and fines imposed for these violations", the official said.
At the same time, rare cases of violations in the pricing sphere were recorded last year, Ovchinnikov said. "Some two to three such violations were revealed last year, and this year the investigations in a number of spheres are not over yet, the work is still underway," he said.
The FAS deputy chief said that this is due primarily to the fact that the amendments to the law on the state defense order came into force on September 1, 2015 and they apply to the contracts concluded at the end of 2015 or in 2016. "At the initial stage of the contract execution it is almost impossible to investigate the pricing issues, because the product’s expense items have not been formed and nothing has been violated. Due to this, we’ll be able to detect this type of violations under the specified contracts only by the end of the current year," the FAS deputy head said.
