Security Council checks activities of Ministry of Economy: 21 corruption risks

21 corruption risks were identified in the activities of the Ministry of Economics. This was reported in the secretariat of the Security Council of the Kyrgyz Republic.

According to it, corruption risks are connected with the state purchases of consulting services, inspections of business entities, the system of analysis of the regulatory impact of the laws and regulations projects, technical regulation, bankruptcy procedures and monitoring of the state material reserve.

As noted, during the analysis of public procurement of consulting services in the Ministry of Economics, risks were identified for participation in contests of affiliated persons, assignment of the right to approve the services performed to a certain official, and to exclude potential suppliers from the competition.

«A systemic problem is the failure of the requirements of the inspecting state bodies to fill in information about the results of inspections on the portal www.proverka.kg. This site is aimed at increasing the transparency and accountability of inspection bodies, but this is possible only with its constant updating,» the Security Council said.

At the meeting of the working group of the Security Council, was also raised the question that when introducing changes, reviewing and adopting draft laws, there is no clear mechanism for conducting analysis of regulatory impact.

The members of the working group will consider in two weeks the draft anti-corruption action plan for the Ministry of Economy.
