The President has established non-working days from October 30 to November 7 inclusive. The Agency explained what to do with purchases if the timing of the procedures falls during this period.
Customers were advised to extend the deadline for submitting applications, which are calculated in working days and include non-working days. This should be done so that the participants have at least as many working days as is usually required (paragraph 1.1 of the Letter).
Operators of electronic platforms should postpone the deadline for submitting final proposals at open electronic tenders and the dates of electronic auctions to working days. The new deadlines will be set taking into account the postponement of the dates of consideration of the first parts of applications and the requirements of Part 3 of Article 54.6, Part 3 of Article 68 of Law No. 44-FZ. If a project is included in the construction auction documentation, the bidding period will remain the same (paragraphs 1.2 and 1.3 of the Letter).
It is not necessary to change the terms of consideration of the second parts of applications for an open tender or auction in the notification, documentation and on the electronic platform (clause 1.4 of the Letter).
Procurement under Law No. 223-FZ
It was recommended to extend the deadline for submitting applications, which are calculated in working days and include non-working days. Participants must have at least the same number of working days as under normal conditions (clause 2.1 of the Letter).
Other actions (for example, consideration and evaluation of applications, conclusion of a contract, entering information into the register of contracts) can be performed both on non-working days and on the next working day (clause 2.3 of the Letter).
Participants will be able to submit applications and submit their collateral during non-working days, as banks and operators of electronic platforms will continue to interact as usual (clause 2.2 of the Letter).
