This agreement proves one more time that consumers constantly develop their internal procurement systems and look for best practices. We are glad that the Republic of Mordovia will use the experience we accumulated as a leading ETP in Russia. At the same time, the region understands that an efficient system of state supplies affects the economy of the entire region and its investment attractiveness, sets high standards for economic relations between participants. We are ready to provide our services, trainings and constant support, as well as access to Sberbank ecosystem products to let the region achieve its development goals. We expect a fruitful cooperation and feedback from both consumers and suppliers.
The main areas of cooperation with the Republic of Mordovia will be organizing and carrying out e-procurement, creating regional standards to implement the agreements, sharing information, providing consultations and cooperating on issues related to procurement and e-signature use.
