Ukroboronprom Group of Companies signed the first framework agreement for Prozorro with a total value of about 2.5 million hryvnia with suppliers of gasoline and diesel fuel. From now on, the defense concern will be able to buy fuel for its needs in a short time and without announcing separate tenders.
Previously, Ukroboronprom held a tender every time it needed fuel. Typically, each such procedure lasted more than 30 calendar days. Now the concern has entered into a framework agreement with 5 filling stations, which will compete among themselves for the right to sell their fuel to Ukroboronprom during a simplified selection: whoever offers the lowest price will receive the contract.
In general, Ukroboronprom's demand is 75,000 liters of gasoline and 14,500 liters of diesel fuel by the end of 2021. The framework agreement allowed the concern to fix the maximum price of gasoline and diesel fuel for 1 liter, as well as reduce the time for its delivery to several days.
“Despite the fact that the Law of Ukraine“ On Public Procurement ”gives 45 calendar days to sign a framework agreement with the winners of the relevant tender, Ukroboronprom managed it in 4 hours. With the beginning of quarantine, we almost completely abandoned paper contracts - and switched to electronic ones. Thus, even signing an agreement with 5 parties at once took us only 4 hours. The very format of the framework agreements allows us to satisfy the concern's need for fuel as soon as possible and on the most transparent terms. Everything through the Prozorro system ", - concluded the purchasing director Nadezhda Begun.
For 10 months of this year, the enterprises of "Ukroboronprom" have saved almost 550 million hryvnia due to the transition to the Prozorro system. The concern has announced and held over 18,000 tenders with a total value of over UAH 6 billion. Most of the enterprises of Ukroboronprom purchased electricity and gas, production equipment and components for it, lubricating oils and coolants, as well as spare parts.
