In July of this year, the Supreme Council adopted the Law “On Public Procurement in Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic”. The document was developed by deputies Mikhail Burla, Viktor Guzun, Vadim Doni, Grigory Dyachenko, Vadim Kravchuk, Sergey Cheban. Lawmakers proposed to change the approaches to the spending of budget funds in the sphere of public procurement.
The law was vetoed by the President, as some of its provisions raised questions. In order to work out a single consolidated position, a conciliation commission was created, which included deputies and government representatives.
The most controversial point was the extension of the law to state and municipal unitary enterprises. Deputies insisted: any purchases made at the expense of budget funds should be governed by basic law. A different position was expressed by government representatives. As a result, it was decided to launch a pilot project in 2019.
The document, taking into account all the proposed amendments, will be considered during the next plenary session.
The deputies of the committee considered the law-in-draft “On the republican budget 2019”. The parliamentarians raised questions of concern to their questions to the First Deputy Prime Minister, Finance Minister Tatyana Kirova.
A number of proposals related to the formation of the Fund to support entrepreneurship. The government made expenditures related to the development of tourism and support for the agricultural sector. Deputies of the committee, while not denying the need to develop these areas, insisted that the funds should be budgeted in accordance with the approved state programs.
As a result of the discussion, amendments that will be sent to the Committee on Economic Policy, Budget and Finance were formed.
