According to the interlocutor of the newspaper, key performance indicators (KPIs) of the management of Rosatom tied to profit, regardless of who the counterparty is external or internal customer. Alexey Likhachev in February in an interview with the newspaper “Rosatom Country” said that in some cases the holdings of the state Corporation to 90% of the time is spent on negotiations with other organizations within the “Rosatom” because they are “fighting for their profits, not sparing the stomach”, the newspaper said.
The newspaper’s source said that it is raising the profile of the criterion of cost to cost centers, working with partners in the contour of the Corporation. The struggle for the maximization of profit among the providers in the Corporation increases the price of the final product, according to the material of the newspaper.
