Russia to Reform Defense Procurement System on Soviet Model?

 

Deputy Director General of Federal Service for Defense Order (Rosoboronzakaz) Vladimir Muravnik offered to reform defense procurement system using Soviet background, reported Interfax on March 30.

“We should distinctly transit from discrete purchases to procurement programs. Primarily, for sophisticated weapon systems”, said Muravnik during public hearing of draft bill on state defense order in the Public Chamber.

According to the official, procurement programs larger than RUR 500 bln must be approved by separate federal laws. According to Muravnik, programs costing RUR 100 – 500 bln must be approved by the president, RUR 10 – 100 bln by government, and up to RUR 10 bln – by appropriate ministers. Such procedure was outlined by Soviet Council of Ministers’ resolution establishing priority armaments and weapon systems.

As of 2011, volume of state defense order made RUR 750 bln. As was reported in Feb 2012, the government was not about to reform defense order cardinally.
