The ”Steklolux-Uzhgorod” LLC “Nobilex” TM will also sell products through the ProZorro network.

On August 3, a scheduled training took place at the Transcarpathian regional state administration, this time called “ProZorro – the system of public purchases”. The workers of “Nobilex” became active participants of the event. The regional agent of ProZorro in the Transcarpathian region prepared a number of presentations, reports and explanations for the people present concerning the essence of work of the system.

So from now on the ”Steklolux-Uzhgorod” LLC “Nobilex” TM, having considered all the advantages of the innovation, will take an active part in the tenders (biddings) concerning public state purchases.

“Nobilex” – we work TRANSPARENTLY (PROZORO, Ukr.)!

ABOUT THE REFORM

Until quite recently, there was a normative legal and institutional base operated in Ukraine which regulated the “paper” procedures of state purchases.

However, as the practice evidences, the formal compliance of the Ukrainian legislation did not guarantee transparent, efficient and just procedures of purchases, nor did it contribute to solving the most important problem in the sphere of state purchases – elimination of the system corruption.

As the experience of other countries shows, the introduction of the electronic system of state purchases gives 10-20% of economy in the very first year due to improving the procedures. In case with Ukraine, this factor may increase significantly due to elimination of corruption. Since the budget of state purchases of Ukraine is about 250 milliards UAH yearly, we can make a conclusion each day from the moment of introduction of the reform economizes at least 55 million UAH for Ukraine!
