Federal officials want to transfer from official cars by taxi
The Russian government is considering the possibility of transferring federal officials from official cars to taxis. The innovation may affect those employees who hold positions below the head of a structural unit. Thus, the authorities want to reduce budgetary expenditures for the maintenance of the bureaucratic apparatus.
As the RBC The issue was considered at a meeting of the government commission on optimizing and improving the efficiency of budget expenditures under the leadership of First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov. According to him, two years ago, the Ministry of Finance already tried in this way to optimize transport costs, but then a taxi turned out to be more expensive than maintaining official cars.
Now aggregators have reduced prices, and their offers have become more competitive. To save money, officials intend to limit the time, territory and class of taxi service. If possible, the authorities want to provide for the organization of procurement procedures in accordance with the federal law on public procurement.
The Ministry of Finance will work on the extension of the practice of using a taxi to move federal officials until January 27, 2020. In addition, the agency will consider the possibility of paying compensation to officials for refusing to assign an official car to them.
