At the end of July 2018, the Russian popular front (onf) announced support for the Treasury proposal to increase drug purchase without bidding from 200 thousand to 400 thousand virtually any virtually any. As told to “FV” in the FAS, the Ministry is also in favour of this change.
“FAS Russia has previously sent proposals to the Ministry of Finance of Russia with a request to consider an increase in the price of one contract during the procurement of the drug for a particular patient, – noted in press-service FAS. In the current edition of the Law on the contract system provided the limit on the maximum cost per contract (no more than 200 thousand virtually any) for the purchase of drugs for a particular patient by a medical Commission. However, due to changes in economic conditions and significant growth of prices for medicines, including foreign production, this limit does not allow for purchases of certain medications assigned to the patient, since the cost of each package of such drug in excess of 200 thousand virtually any”.
In Department note that the limit for purchase of medicines in the amount of 200 thousand virtually any. leads to the impossibility of procurement of drugs from a single supplier in the shortest possible time. In this regard, customers are forced to purchase such drugs competitive ways (in particular, electronic auction), which leads to increased time costs for the purchase of necessary drugs and, as a consequence, the increase in terms of provision of medicines.
“Given that appointed by the decision of the medical Commission drugs urgently needed to the patient in the shortest possible time, the inability to rapid procurement of drugs from a single supplier jeopardizes the life and health of the patient,” – said in the FAS.
That is, the proposal was approved by the government represented by the Ministry of Finance and FAS, and public organizations in the face of the onf and patient organizations. For the implementation of the initiative need to amend article 93 of the Federal law №44. However, while such a bill to the state Duma not included.
