The fight against corruption by increasing transparency and improving measures to real observance of anti-corruption rules and obligations, including through the ratification of the UN Convention against Corruption was also discussed. By the way, Russia has not yet ratified the Article 20 of the Convention, implying a fight against the illicit enrichment of public officials.
In addition to the world's economic problems, the summit participants paid attention to the war in Syria. In this matter reaching an agreement has failed. Eleven countries have declared their support for U.S. action on military intervention in Syria, even in the absence of the mandate of the UN Security Council. Russia, the hostess of the meeting, opposes such military intervention. Open warfare could only tighten the knot of the conflict, and the consequences will incalculably affect the fragile world economy.
According to the Article 19 of the 94th Federal law "On placing the orders for state and municipal needs" unfair suppliers are included in special register maintained by the Anti-Monopoly Service.
There are two reasons for entering in the mentioned register of unfair suppliers. First, if the auction winner refuses to sign the contract. In this case, the customer must notify the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) for further verification and unfair supplier gets into the registry in case of validation. The second reason is significant violation of contract terms. In this case, the customer terminates the contract in court, and refers to the OFAS only after the court decision comes into force.
Information about the firm is in the Register of unfair suppliers (RUS) for two years from the entry date. The company has no right to participate in the bidding for this period of time, and only expiration could be the reason for the removal from the register.
In the future the requirements of keeping the Register are planned to be tightened. Now founders and directors of organizations included in the registry often start a new business or change tax number (INN) and continue their activities. Therefore, the FAS plans to add information on founders and directors to the registry. But as long as the change is not introduced, companies should take heed in order not to face the unfair suppliers while entering into agreements.
Specialized Information-analytical system Globas-i helps to find online all the necessary information about the supplier: registration data, information on licenses, litigation, leadership and shareholders structure. The system also contains information on the dates of inclusion and exclusion of the company to / from the Register of unfair suppliers. Moreover, the Reliability index is to appear in the system, with the help of such index the user can easily recognize a fly-by-night company.
