MOSCOW, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet with activists of Russia Popular Front (ONF) on Thursday to discuss implementation of the anti-corruption project monitoring government procurements, the Kremlin press service reported.
The project, launched in 2013, envisioned ONF control over government procurements and regular reports on suspicious contracts to the country's leadership. ONF experts reported more than 230 suspicious procurements worth some 150 billion roubles within six months.
Twenty-six tenders with contracts worth 9.3 billion roubles were cancelled as ONF warned senior officials about violations. One of the most important results of the programme was that "local officials clearly understood the signals: for example, their requests for service cars have become more modest, and some regions cut spending on media coverage of the activity of their administrations."
Representatives of regional ONF headquarters are expected to report on independent monitoring of how presidential "May 2012 decrees" are implemented.
Special attention will be paid to social tasks in the areas of health care, housing and public utilities. ONF has five working groups analyzing the implementation of presidential degrees in regions.
