Procurement activities

The procurement policy held by JSC FPC is aimed at keeping prices for consumable goods and services down.

The main policy instruments are the highest use of the mechanism of tendering procedures and conclusion of long-term contracts and fixed price contracts or unit price review contracts.

These approaches are reflected in the work with the following largest contractors:

  • JSC TVZ (contract for the delivery of RIC carriages);
  • railway-car repair works (repair agreements in 2012- 2017 and further);
  • JSC Wagon-Service (unit-linked contract till 2024);
  • Patentes TALGO SL (rolling stock maintenance contract till 2054).

In 2014, the Company organised competitive ordering procedures with a total number of 546 lots, which economic effect amounted to RUB 1,199.5 million excluding VAT.

In addition, the meetings of the Price Commission of JSC FPC considered 94 issues on conclusion of standalone agreements and additional agreements to pre-contracts in 2014. Savings compared to the initial proposals of contractors amounted minimum RUB 450 million excluding VAT.
