Schools in Kazakhstan will be constructed under model projects - Ministry of Finance
Astana. December 5. KazTAG - Schools in Kazakhstan will be constructed under the model projects, said Alikhan Smailov, First Deputy Prime Minister-Minister of Finance.
"There have been abuses as the prices were overestimated in the preparation of documents for financing of certain objects (schools, kindergartens built at the expense of budget funds - KazTAG). We want to fundamentally solve this problem through application of standard projects," said Smailov.
In his words, the state department under the Ministry of Industry and Infrastructure Development has created an information system that has already covered 11 thousand projects that were previously developed.
“Therefore, we propose, firstly, to apply standard designs, especially on social facilities, and secondly, it provides for possibility of re-application of design estimates documents for new facilities. As practice shows, repeated PSD is three times cheaper than a newly developed one. Therefore, we will introduce standard projects and appropriate amendments to the legislation, obliging budget administrators to use the standard projects," he said.
