The funds of the NWF allocated for the modernization of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian highways remained on the deposit of RZD

From the National Welfare Fund, allocated for the modernization of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian routes in the amount of 50 billion rubles, for January 1 2016, only 3,7 billion rubles (or 7%) were spent. The balance of NWF funds for 2015 under interest of the contract with Bank VTB accrued interest - 4,2 billion rubles, which were taken into account by Russian Railways as part of the company's income from financial activities

The Board of the Accounts Chamber of the Russian Federation, chaired by Tatyana Golikova, reviewed the results of the verification of the use of the National Wealth Fund's resources aimed at financing the infrastructure project "Modernization of the railway infrastructure of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian railway lines with the development of carrying capacity and capacity".

Objects of inspection: Open Joint-Stock Company Russian Railways, Directorate for Construction of Communication Facilities - a branch of Russian Railways, Directorate for Integrated Reconstruction of Railways and Construction of Railway Transport Facilities — a branch of Russian Railways and Joint-Stock Company RZhDstroy.

Check period of activity: 2015

The report was made by the auditor Valery Bogomolov, the press service of the RF SP reports.

In March 2015 for the implementation of the infrastructure project "Modernization of the railway infrastructure of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian railroads with the development of carrying capacity and carrying capacity" attracted funds of the National Welfare Fund in the amount of 50 billion rubles. However, at 1 January 2016, the cash expenditure was only 3,7 billion rubles. Or 7% of the received amount.

As Valery Bogomolov said, according to the agreement concluded between Russian Railways and VTB Bank, interest was accrued on the balance of NWF funds for 2015 - 4,2 billion rubles. “The received interest is taken into account by the company as part of the income from financial activities and is spent in order to ensure current activities,” the auditor explained.

One of the reasons for the low utilization of funds of the National Welfare Fund is the lack of approved design and estimate documentation for facilities whose construction was planned for 2015.

In 2015, Russian Railways did not observe the planned construction time for the investment project facilities. From 88 facilities, where construction and installation work was planned to be carried out in 2015, contracts were concluded only for 73. At the same time, as the audit of the Accounts Chamber showed, 30 of them did not work at all.

In violation of the requirements of the Urban Planning Code for 9 objects where construction and installation works were performed and paid for, there was no approved design and estimate documentation and construction permits.

The audit revealed serious discrepancies in the main documentation governing the implementation of the project. “It should be noted that the indicators of the Detailed Action Plan of the project approved by the Governmental Commission on Transport and the Consolidated List approved by JSC Russian Railways do not correspond to the parameters of the Passport of the Investment Project,” said Valery Bogomolov.

According to the new plan, which was updated in December 2015, the project implementation period has been increased by 2 year - to 2019, and the amount of financing for 2015 at the expense of the NWF was provided in the amount of 8,9 billion rubles. Nevertheless, the NWF received 50 billion rubles. The parameters of the project financing according to the Investment Program of the Russian Railways also do not correspond to the parameters of the Passport. The investment program during the 2015 was adjusted several times. "With the adjustment in December 2015, the target figures are close to the actual performance. All this indicates a low quality of planning activities for the implementation of the Investment Project, "- said the auditor.

The audit revealed a number of violations of procurement legislation. During the tenders of Russian Railways, the requirements of the federal law no. 223-FZ: The design and estimate documentation was not posted on the official website as part of the tender documentation; for a number of competitions there was no justification for the marginal price; the terms of conclusion of separate contracts following the results of the competitions held were also not observed.

The Order of Russian Railways approved a standard clause on the corporate standard for the implementation of contractual work between subsidiaries of Russian Railways, which allows for the procurement of goods, works and services without additional procedures for selecting a supplier. “This order contradicts 223-FZ in terms of expanding opportunities for legal entities and individuals to participate in the procurement of goods, works and services for the needs of customers, and develop fair competition, ”explained Valery Bogomolov.

According to the results of the auditor’s speech, the Chairman of the Accounts Chamber Tatyana Golikova noted that the decision to allocate funds of the NWF to finance the project to modernize the infrastructure of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian railways was not worked out. The project financing schedule was drawn up without taking into account the actual deadlines for preparing the documents necessary for its implementation. Funds of the National Welfare Fund were allocated to JSC Russian Railways in the absence of design and estimate documentation and the results of the technological price audit.

“Financing of the project at the expense of the National Wealth Fund did not affect the timing of the project. The allocated funds did not support the relevant sectors of the economy. Thus, the allocation of funds of the National Welfare Fund in the amount of 2015 billion to finance the project in 50 in the framework of the Anti-Crisis Plan is not justified, ”Tatyana Golikova summarized.

The Board decided to send a presentation to the open joint stock company "Russian Railways", information letters to the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation, the Federal Railway Transport Agency and the Federal Antimonopoly Service, as well as to the Government of the Russian Federation. The report will be sent to the chambers of the Federal Assembly.
