FAS AND THE MOSCOW GOVERNMENT SIGNED AN AGREEMENT ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES
The agreement was signed by Sergey Puzyrevskiy, Stats-Secretary - Deputy Head of the FAS Russia, and Vladimir Efimov, Deputy Mayor of Moscow for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations
In the near future, expert opinions of regulatory authorities throughout the country will have an electronic digital format and will be downloaded through the EIAS system of the FAS Russia. It will be an important step towards the digital transformation of tariff regulation – one of the FAS Russia’s priorities for the coming years. In order to accelerate the process of digitalization of tariff regulation in the country, the FAS plans to use the successful Moscow practice.
“It is symbolic that the agreement with the Moscow Government was signed within the framework of the All-Russian Tariff Conference. Because one of the main directions of the Concept of tariff regulation is digitalization. That means that the topics that have become the subject of discussion find their practical embodiment. And the agreement is one of the first, but important steps in this direction”, said Sergey Puzyrevskiy.
“Digitalization in the field of tariff formation is one of the strategic directions of our work, it allows us to make decisions more quickly and efficiently. We have been working with colleagues from the FAS for a long time, including within the framework of the unified digital platform of the EIAS, which allows us to exchange experience in this respect with other regions and adopt best practices. This year, a pilot project was also implemented in Moscow with the use of electronic forms of tariff applications in tariff campaigns in the fields of cold water supply and sanitation. Based on the portal mos.ru we managed to digitize the processes of submitting tariff applications and applications for technical connection, create a structured repository of supporting documents of organizations and form a story about the progress of the tariff campaign,” stressed out Vladimir Efimov.
Moscow's successful experience in digital transformation, approaches to the creation of appropriate tools and methodology will ensure the transfer of these technologies to the federal level and their inclusion in the Unified Tariff Platform being created.
