83% applications for state services related to construction sector of Moscow were submitted via the internet in 8 months of this year, said the Head of the Moscow Department of urban planning policy, Sergey Levkin.
“15424 out of 18641 applications were submitted electronically. This proves the fact that e-services in construction industry are in high demand among investment and construction business community of Moscow,” added Sergey Levkin.
He noted that the work on lowering administrative barriers was launched by the order of the Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin. Nowadays 11 key state services are provided online.
“We have created a closed loop system of electronic administrative procedures which ensures the construction process from A to Z. The Moscow Construction complex provides the full range of e-services – from submitting an application up to getting the result – a document signed by the electronic signature of the official,” said Sergey Levkin.
As shown by the results of research carried out by Ernst&Young and presented at the VI Moscow Urban Forum, Moscow developers have already noted simplification of administrative procedures.
