BELGOROD, December 28. /TASS/. The All-Russian Popular Front has proposed delaying implementation of the single state purchase information system in Russia.
A total of $10 million has been spent on the system’s development but it still exists only on paper.
Head of the all-Russian Popular Front’s project "For Honest Purchases" Anton Getta said at the Central Federal District’s anti-corruption forum that the single state purchase information system planned for launch from January 1 was a cause for concern.
"But we didn’t even think that everyone would yet be finishing contracts of the past year. We told both the Treasury and the Economic Development Ministry that the entire volume of new purchases would have to be handled by an undeveloped system from January 11," Getta said.
"We’ll soon inform the authorities about our general concern and ask them once again to delay the system’s introduction," he added.
Experts actually failed to assess the work of the system even in a preliminary regime: the Federal Treasury was ready to show it to all-Russian Popular Front activists on November 24 only in the form of a slide presentation.
As deputy head of the all-Russian Popular Front’s project "For Honest Purchases" Alexey Dautov said, "as of today, this system cannot even normally count."
