Some documentation on the project of construction of gas pipeline “Power of Siberia” no detailed information about the volume of ordered works, the quality requirements, results of operations, stated in FAS. It noted that as a result, the purchasers are not able to form their proposals.

MOSCOW, 9 Dec. The Federal Antimonopoly service of the Russian Federation once again revealed violations in the procurement of “Gazprom”, this time after the inspection service requests to renegotiate the purchase of gas holding at 156 billion rubles on the construction of the gas pipeline “Power of Siberia”, said in a letter to the head of “Gazprom” Alexey Miller.

The FAS on the results of the analysis, in particular, revealed that in some documentation there is no detailed information about the volume of ordered works, the quality requirements, technical characteristics and results of the work. As a result, the purchasers are not able to form their proposals, including price.

In addition, the service found that in some cases was incorrectly formed lot, redundantly established requirements for the types and organization of works, not properly installed criteria evaluation and comparison of bids.

In addition, documentation of purchase implies the existence of a Bank guarantee issued by acceptable for Gazprom Bank. The following list represents 23 of the Bank. These requirements limit the number of participants and are contrary to the requirements of the law on procurement, according to the letter.

“Given the above, I urge You to reconsider conditions of the purchase and to bring the documentation into compliance with the requirements of the procurement law, regulations on procurement,” reads the letter signed by the head of FAS Igor Artemyev available.

As reported by Artemyev earlier on Wednesday, the FAS waits for a response of “Gazprom” to the letter, and in the case of no reply “will think what to do next”.

“Gazprom” on November 30 has announced an open request for proposals for the selection of General contractor for the construction of four sections of the pipeline Power of Siberia (the Lena — Salicilizma; Salicilizma — Olekminsky; Olekma — Amginsky and Amginsky — Nemirsky) length 822,1 kilometers. Total amount of purchases unprecedented 155,9 billion rubles. The results will be announced on 18 December.

In “Gazprom” then explained that the decision to hold a single tender for the construction of 822 kilometers of the gas pipeline “Power of Siberia” “turnkey” due to the optimization of costs; the cost of construction of the pipeline linear part was on average below 5% of the first areas of construction.

The first section of the “power of Siberia” length of 208 kilometers (from Candy to Lensk) builds the company “Stroytransgaz”, which received the General contract for construction without a tender earlier in the year.
