On June 27, competition was partially restored in public procurement — the Cabinet of Ministers published amendments to Resolution No. 169, which obliged procuring entities to conduct simplified procurement. Today, a month later, we decided to summarize a little bit the initial results of this restoration. Let us tell you about striking simplified procurement transactions over the past 30 days.
Let us note that at the end of June, the government not only amended the resolution on the procurement in wartime, but also held several webinars to clarify its use. Therefore, for planned procurement transactions, procuring entities mostly returned to the Law. And now there is competition in other procedures, not just in simplified ones. And this procurement method and Prozorro Market can be used for any amount for non-urgent and unclassified needs arising because of the war.
From June 27 until today, procuring entities announced 20,000 competitive procurement transactions, 14,400 of them being simplified ones for more than UAH 12.4 bln. 13% of these transactions have already been completed, and another 67% are ongoing. Most often, state and municipal institutions buy fuel, construction works, and medical equipment.
Simplified procurement from “the most” category
The most expensive simplified procurement transaction was announced by the Department of Road Facilities of the Lviv Regional State Administration. It plans to purchase maintenance and minor repairs of almost 1,800 km of roads in the oblast, ready to pay UAH 581.5 million.
The most popular was a tender for paper forms at Oleksandrivska Hospital in Kyiv. 15 entrepreneurs came to the tender, and eventually the cost of the order at the bidding decreased by more than a half — from UAH 90,000 UAH to UAH 39,500.
The fastest procuring transactions — in 8 days; regional department of the SBI in Khmelnytskyi, the Department of Housing and Municipal Services, Landscaping, Environmental Protection and Infrastructure of the Putyvl City Council and MO Dobrobut of the Demydiv Village Council conducted 4 simplified procurement transactions. Another 18 simplified procurement transactions were completed in 9 days.
The largest number of simplified procurement transactions were announced by PAT “Ukrhydroenergo” — 132 lots for UAH 28.5 mln. However, this month, AT Vinnytsiaoblenergo managed to complete the highest number of transactions — 43 lots worth UAH 7.3 million.
In turn, SE “Medical Procurement of Ukraine” prepares to spend the largest amounts on simplified procurement transactions. In total, UAH 1.8 billion for 58 transactions.
TOV Livain Torh has become the leader among the business, having received the highest number of contracts in a month. We are talking about 52 agreements worth UAH 16.8 million. The company trades in fuel.
A little more of interesting procurement transactions
In five oblasts, SES units buy sets of modular buildings: most of them consist of 3 residential modules and one sanitary one. Depending on the composition, the cost of the set ranges from UAH 3.4 to 5.1 million. In Volyn, a universal all-terrain vehicle was also among the needs of rescuers — it cost UAH 6.2 million. Now, similar transport is bought in Kyiv oblast.
As for procurement in the field of education, 40 school buses were purchased in Kyiv region for UAH 100 million. In Dnipro, the Department of Humanitarian Policy buys 5,500 benches for almost UAH 12 million for shelters in educational institutions, another 36 pieces for UAH 77,000 are planned to be purchased by the school-center of creativity. By the beginning of the school year, 2,200 backpacks with stationery were ordered for children who were evacuated from Mariupol to the territory controlled by Ukraine.
5 Škoda 25Tr Irisbus trolleybuses can be purchased in Ternopil — a tender for EUR 100,000 is currently underway. In the Podilskyi district of Kyiv, Zelenbud buys bushes and trees for almost UAH 2.6 million. And in Yavoriv, stands of the stadium are to be repaired for UAH 23.3 million.
