On President’s instructions, single base of special equipment to be created in Kazakhstan — Ministry of Finance

The measures to implement the instructions of the Head of State given at an expanded Government session on July 14, 2022, were considered at the government session in Ukimet Uyi. The Deputy Prime Minister - Minister of Finance Yerulan Zhamaubayev reported on the implementation of the President's instructions.

In terms of improving public procurement in the construction sector, it is proposed to establish a mandatory requirement for the availability of own construction equipment. To do this, it is planned to create a single database of specialized equipment, which will make it possible to automatically check for their presence. These measures will allow to screen out contractors who do not have their own basic equipment for construction work.

In addition, in order to limit the illegal subcontracting of construction works in public procurement and procurement of quasi-public sector entities, it is planned to provide for the possibility of terminating the Procurement Agreement in the following cases:

  • transfer to subcontractors exceeding the maximum volume of work;
  • attraction of subcontractors not agreed with the customer.

As Zhamaubayev noted, the preliminary need for the implementation of the national project "Modernization of rural healthcare" is about 215 billion tenge. At the same time, the amount of expenses for the implementation of these measures will be further worked out as part of the formation of general transfers and the republican budget for 2023-2025.

In addition, the instruction of the Head of State to improve fiscal policy will be implemented jointly with the Ministry of National Economy and the Agency for Strategic Planning and Reforms.

“All instructions given at the enlarged meeting of the Government will be executed in a quality and timely manner. At the same time, the volume of expenses for the implementation of the initiatives of the President will be worked out jointly with the administrators of budget programs,” Zhamaubayev concluded.
