They want to give an advantage in public procurement to businesses in the Far North

The Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East plans to give preferences to small businesses in the Far North for government purchases. The new law will allow on preferential terms to participate in public procurement for the supply of goods or the provision of services.

According to the press service of the department, if an entrepreneur working in the Arctic offers the lowest price during the auction and wins, then up to 15% will be added to the price offered to him. Knowing this, an entrepreneur will be able to offer a lower price at the auction than competitors from other regions.

According to expert estimates, the expenses of entrepreneurs in the Far North increase the cost of starting and running a business by 1,5-2 times compared to other regions. Because of this, goods, works or services become uncompetitive, the access of entrepreneurs to participation in procurement for state and municipal needs is limited.

It is assumed that the bill will level the playing field and increase the rate of socio-economic growth of the northern territories. The mechanism has already been supported by the authorities of the regions in which there are regions of the Far North and territories equivalent to them.
