Marat Khusnullin: hard-copy paperwork recedes into background
Paper document flow in the Moscow construction complex in 2016 was significantly reduced, said Marat Khusnullin, Deputy Mayor for urban policy and construction.
According to him, since the beginning of the year the Construction complex has received about 43.5 thousand documents. Hard-copy document flow was reduced by 5%.
Marat Khusnullin noted that positive momentum was gained due to general reduction of administrative burden in construction industry.
The Head of Construction complex stressed that transfer of state services to electronic format is an important step to meet investors. Abandoning hard-copy paperwork made the dialogue between business and government more simple and transparent.
“By the end of 2013, when the work on lowering administrative barriers in construction was just beginning, 7 core state services in this field were transferred to electronic format. To date, 12 services can be obtained online. Moreover, for 11 of them we have completely abandoned the traditional paper format,” added Marat Khusnullin.
It is to be recalled that at the VI Moscow Urban Forum the leading companies conducted a series of studies dedicated to reduction of administrative barriers and its influence on the activity of real estate developers. The results of these surveys confirmed that the construction market participants are well aware of administrative reforms and approve them.
