Bashkortostan: management of Public Roads Administration fell under investigation for negligence by $3.7 million
Employees of the state enterprise, according to the investigation, illegally issued advances to one of the contractors.
The management of the Bashkiria Public Roads Administration is suspected of negligence, as a result of which the budget was damaged in the amount of 222 million rubles ($3.7 million). On the fact of the incident a criminal case was initiated, the press service of the Investigative Committee of the region reports.
According to the investigation, the employees of the department, which is directly subordinate to the State Committee for Transport and Roads of the Republic, made an unjustified advance of the work of a major local contractor - Bashkiravtodor JSC (owned by the Republic and also subordinated to the State Committee for Transport).
It is noted that the Public Road Administration acts as the main administrator of the budget allocated to Bashkiria for road construction.
In particular, last November Bashkiravtodor JSC won a management contract for the construction of 10 km of the Birsk-Tastuba-Satka road bypassing the village of Karaidel with a total cost of 1.7 billion rubles ($28.7m). The contract is paid from the republican and federal budgets and must be executed in October 2020.
The ICR notes that in December the Public Roads Administration transferred 222 million rubles to the contractor on the basis of the papers provided by it for allegedly performed works. The Administration has made no sure of its actual performance and signed transfer and acceptance Acts.
Public Roads Administration employees do not agree with the conclusions of investigators and are ready to prove this in court.
