The parties will jointly launch an educational project developed to help the participants - bidders and customers to avoid the most common mistakes in procurement

Within the framework of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum Maxim Shaskolsky, the head of the FAS Russia, and Mikhail Komissar, the Chief Executive Officer of the Interfax Group, signed the document.

The agreement provides for cooperation of the parties in the development and implementation of         qualification upgrading courses for representatives of government authorities and commercial organizations in the field of procurement – joint seminars, meetings and other events, exchange of reference and methodological materials, and consulting assistance. As Maxim Shaskolsky, the head of the FAS Russia, noted on the relevance of the issue, since in 2020 the federal antimonopoly service has considered almost 80 thousand procurement complaints under the provisions of the Federal Laws No. 44-FZ* and No. 223-FZ**, of which more than 30 thousand were considered as justified.

"Our joint educational program is a significant step to establish a unified approach and prevent violations of procurement law. It was developed with the participation of experts directly monitoring the procurement procedures and providing information about the most common mistakes in the field of state, municipal and commercial procurement. The course will improve the legal literacy of participants in the procurement system, reduce the number of violations and expedite the implementation of socially significant projects," said Maxim Shaskolsky, the head of the FAS Russia.

It is expected that the educational course will be held at the leading universities of the country – RANEPA, HSE, MGIMO, MSU, St. Petersburg State University, etc.
