As the basic system industry, engineering is more exposed to the crisis. According to experts, the consequences of 1998 crisis in engineering haven’t completely overcome, moreover, they aggravated under the influence of 2009 global economic crisis and negative trends of 2014-2015.

The adjustment and control function over implementation of investment projects is assigned on the coordinating body of the Government of the Russian Federation. The functions also include the matching of characteristics of engineering products for the implementation of investment projects and the possibility of procurement of such products abroad. The basis for decision making will be the procuring entities’ lists of future needs in engineering products for a period of not less than 5 years or for a period of project implementation.
Besides, the coordinating body is authorized to make decisions about the necessity of data placement about procurement of engineering products in the Unified information system (UIS). The customers will be able to make contracts for the supply of products, work and services only in accordance with the plan, placed in UIS, except the cases of accidents or emergencies.
