TASS, August 11. The Federal Antimonopoly service (FAS) of Russia proposes to increase the efficiency of public procurement through the introduction of a system of fines and bonuses for employees responsible for procurement.

“Premiums and penalties should determine the management of companies, depending on each specific case. Moreover, sanctions can be not only material, but also disciplinary. For example, a reprimand with entry in the workbook”, – explained Deputy head of FAS, Maxim Ovchinnikov.

According to him, recommendations will be “voluntary-compulsory” only for companies of the military-industrial complex (MIC), working in the field of defense procurement, for other companies with state participation is optional.
