Regions received a part of the authorities of the federal state expertise
Some of the powers of the federal state expertise were transferred to regional structures. The corresponding decree of the Government of Russia was published on the portal for placement of legal acts.
In particular, regional authorities will be able to independently conduct price and project state expertise at the local level even if they have received federal subsidies with object-based distribution of these funds.
Such changes help to reduce administrative barriers, reduce time and financial costs for implementing construction projects, said Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Vitaly Mutko.
“You know, now 12 national projects are being implemented, within them from 5 to 10 projects with huge federal investments in construction, overhaul, reconstruction of facilities in the territory of the Russian Federation. At the same time, earlier legislation required a federal expert review in the case of federal investment, which increased the construction costs of the regions and extended the time needed for obtaining all necessary approvals, ”he recalled.
The Vice Prime Minister stressed that the work on simplifying administrative procedures for facilities built using federal budget funds will continue.
“With the help of amendments to the Budget Code, we want to make it easier to return to the federal budget funds that have not been disbursed in a particular year. Now it is possible only through the mechanism of the Reserve Fund, we propose to use the mechanism of the decision of the main manager of budget funds, that is, the relevant ministry. Of course, in case the construction really goes on, ”said Vitaly Mutko.
