MOSCOW, December 29. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has initiated a case against three organizations suspected of anti-competitive collusion in the construction of the Vostochny spaceport, the ministry said.
The regulator suspects that the federal state unitary enterprise Dalspetsstroy, the Federal Centre for pricing in construction and LLC Gosnormativ colluded when choosing a contractor to calculate individual indices of the project’s cost change. The cost of the contract amounted to more than 300 million rubles ($4.5 mln), the regulator said.
"Such arrangements always lead to an increase in the cost of construction and, therefore, contradict the interests of the state," Deputy Head of the FAS Alexander Kanev said.
In August 2015, the FAS found that the the Federal Centre for pricing in construction, Gosnormativ and several other government agencies violated the Law on Protection of Competition. Then the agency had revealed the signing an anti-competitive agreement, which resulted in or could lead to a restriction of competition on the market of software for calculation of construction costs.
