The scheme of procurement and repair of military equipment from Sergei Shoigu and the new composition of the military-industrial complex

The scheme of procurement and repair of military equipment from Sergei Shoigu and the new composition of the military-industrial complexAt the next conference call, in which assumed the role of Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu, considered the question of on what basis within the framework of state defense order will be concluded contracts for the repair and service of military equipment. Subject state defense order, and more precisely it has become commonplace failures over the last couple of years (since the moment it was announced significant funding modernization and rearmament) acquired obviously sick color. This particular color each time forcing pay special attention to all the decisions that are taken in the field of defense or negotiated as a potentially plausible.

Sergei Shoigu said at the conclusion of contracts with defense companies to completely neutralize the danger, why would purposefully go to the following schemes: who makes the technique, that it then and repairs. From the perspective of the minister, this scheme will allow cause danger that poor procurement of military equipment from companies military-industrial complex will be kept to a minimum and, therefore, reduce the burden on the municipal treasury. In addition, the adoption of such solutions, the companies defense will be financially profitable to produce a complete redesign of their own equipment, and the whole range of measures to increase the qualifications of their employees. In other words, minister Defense has emphasized that the issue was a poor technique will lead to the fact that by the same issuing companies will have to go to extra expense to their responsibilities or unforced errors to correct.

Such a proposal from the current defense minister sought out as supporters and foes alike. Proponents of Sergei Shoigu given to understand that the proposal defense minister has a range of advantages, the main one of which is to save money and increase the budget of the products properties. Budget savings in this case might be in the absence of a number of intermediaries between the Ministry of Defence and the production company. As you know, the less middlemen in the form of virtually unchecked working companies, the less chance of losing a certain percentage of funds allocated to repair military equipment.

Opponents are not ready to accept the idea so optimistic Sergei Shoigu. They behold the, very few, one flaw in the scheme proposed by the Minister. According to them (opponents) opinion, the government in this case, not only did not win the money, but instead is going to have to produce new costs. The fact that the defense companies that supply that or other equipment to military units, often are behind thousands of miles from these parts. And if, for example, a tank or helicopter in the operation fails one or the other unit (node), the transport machinery required for manufacturing plant will be very costly for the Treasury.
In addition, critics of the idea of Sergei Shoigu argue that, in today's market criteria impermanence quite impossible to enter into long-term contracts to repair military equipment from the manufacturing company. The point is that like no one can know in advance about the price of repair, for example, the T-90A for the coming 10-15 years.

In principle, the problem of such a deal could be contracting, not designed for 10-15 years of service, or other item of military equipment, as, for example, for 3-5 years. But, for some reason, this version of the opponents of the idea of the minister is not considered.

To use a trivial anti-corruption message of Sergei Shoigu, but all this did not bring to the fact that in any case, comfortable and awkward a failed technology push off for repair at its manufacturer, the experts offer their suggestions. One such proposal looks like the introduction of the Soviet experience in production and repair of military equipment intended use. The essence of proposals is that the Ministry of Defence was reserved for a certain number of repair facilities in different regions of the country. At these facilities would be made of tempered repair without using the services of numerous intermediary firms. It would reduce the time of work and do speak out so that the repair sector plan for state defense order without delay, which showed all the near future.

While the Ministry of Defence to decide on what path to keep moving, that the SDO was once again thwarted the order number 114-r of the Government of the Russian Federation was declared the new Military-Industrial Commission. MIC — this is a special government body which the company produces work of the executive power in terms of military-industrial solutions for the safety of the country (including the security forces of the military-technical means), and building a system of law enforcement.

As expected, the deputy chairman of the military-industrial complex was Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin. In addition to his military-industrial complex includes an additional 22 permanent members, among which are the Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, director Rosoboronzakaz A. Potapov, Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturova, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltseva, A.Belousova Minister of Economic Development, the Minister of Finance Anton Siluanov, Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov. She is also in constant members of the commission and minister Health Veronika Skvortsova.

Still, there are 37, so to say, the non-permanent members of the military-industrial complex, among which — as the manager RTN N.Kutin and minister Education and Science D.Livanov. As such a commission would be workable, and it will allow to solve urgent problems with the modernization of the Russian army will, as usual, time.
