Against legislative changes in the sphere of government purchases (Law "About Contract System in the Sphere of Purchases of Goods, Works, Services for Ensuring the State and Municipal Needs" and Law "About Purchases of Goods, Works, Services by Separate Types of Legal Entities"), electronic trading platforms reducing the income (ETP), operators find sources of additional earnings. They create new services which provide platforms or their affiliated structures. As appears from correspondence of the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Economics and Federal Antimonopoly Service, such activity already caused discontent and complaints suppliers. correspondence of departments in connection with the addresses which have arrived to them of citizens about violations of requirements to electronic platforms from outside LLC "RTS-tender" (the daughter of PUBLIC JOINT-STOCK COMPANY "SOVKOMBANK") appeared

on hand newspaper "Kommersant". Let's remind, auctions within federal Law "About Contract System in the Sphere of Purchases of Goods, Works, Services for Ensuring the State and Municipal Needs" about government purchases carry out six accredited Ministries of Economics of platforms, including LLC "RTS-tender". The speech in addresses, in particular, goes about illegal write-off by the operator of means of participants of purchases for the option "Useful Services". This service a platform according to addressed, imposes, "using the monopoly position". The operator, having started free new services (the help in electronic document flow, legal maintenance and so on), in two months transferred them to a paid basis. With those who, having received the notice of it, within a month did not refuse services, about 18 thousand rubles for its use were written off. It also caused discontent of suppliers. General director LLC "RTS-tender" Lishenkov Vladimir, however, claims that that who demanded money back even after the declared term, they were returned.
the Ministry of Economics sent br appeals to department of the budgetary policy in the sphere of contract system of the Ministry of Finance to which passed powers of the regulator in the sphere of government purchases. But that specified that agreements on functioning of operators of government purchases signed Ministry of Economics and Federal Antimonopoly Service (the service has the right to fine platforms for violations of conditions), having suggested to deal him with a problem. The similar address readdressed Ministry of Economics and the State Office of Public Prosecutor. The deputy head Federal Antimonopoly Service Rachik Petrosyan told that "the address is under consideration" and the answer will be given to the applicant until the end of March.

according to sources newspaper "Kommersant", also questions are caused also by legitimacy of use by PUBLIC JOINT-STOCK COMPANY "SOVKOMBANK" integrated with "LLC "RTS-tender"" the Fintender.ru service on granting credits and bank guarantees to suppliers, besides that the operator already gains income from placement on deposits in PUBLIC JOINT-STOCK COMPANY "SOVKOMBANK" the funds of suppliers transferred for ensuring participation in purchases. Participants of the market of doubt and concerning compliance to requirements of the service created by "daughter" of companies JSC "Sberbank-AST" — the certifying Sberklyuch center LLC "Sberklyuch" test. He offers for accreditation on a platform JSC "Sberbank-AST" for 10,5 thousand rubles. to carry out "preliminary expert expertize of documents" and to send them to the operator, guaranteeing their priority expeditious consideration, besides that accreditation under the law is for participants of purchases free. In JSC "Sberbank-AST" on it declared that service provides "other legal entity".
Such activity of operators can explain br to that since July 1, 2018 they will lose the income from investments the deposited means of ensuring of government purchases and will be obliged to transfer them to third-party special accounts created by the government. Besides, state companies will be obliged to carry out purchases for small businesses by rules Law "About Contract System in the Sphere of Purchases of Goods, Works, Services for Ensuring the State and Municipal Needs", providing free accreditation for participation in auctions, instead of on norms Law "About Purchases of Goods, Works, Services by Separate Types of Legal Entities" which allow to raise for it a payment. In this situation of attempt of operators to earn will become more active and disputes about it will be more, experts predict.
