The state monopolist “Ukrzaliznytsia” despite the order of the Cabinet of Ministers may discriminate against Ukrainian metallurgists in the matter of purchase of raw materials on a tender from “Ukrzaliznytsya”, it is referred to in the statement of the President of Association of enterprises “Ukrmetallurgprom” A. Kalenkova posted on the website of the Association.
“Under the terms of the tender – in accordance with the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers to tender for the purchase of scrap from Ukrzaliznytsia allowed specialized metallurgical company. In addition, if the winning bidder is the supplier of “Ukrzaliznytsia”, the terms of payment for the scrap to it are calculated according to the formula 50% to 50% (advance payment and the rest upon delivery). If the purchaser is not a vendor, “uz”, he / she must pay 100% advance payment”, – says Kalenkov.
However, the expert points out that metallurgists in the end, the formal reason deprived of the opportunity to procure raw materials according to the formula of “50% on 50%”. While for the real producers in the current environment to freeze almost 1.5 months the amount of 100% prepayment for the whole lot – a killer step.
“Ukrzaliznytsya”…written tender conditions so that the conditions for purchase with 50% prepayment can not use most of metallurgists of Ukraine… the Formal reason is that businesses that buy scrap metal, production and sell it to customers, including “Ukrzaliznytsya” – different legal entities within the same industrial holding company, Ukrzaliznytsia is ready to provide advantage in the form of a 50% advance payment only to those legal entities which are simultaneously producer and supplier of TIES. Very strange approach, given the standard world practice when the objectives of a business are distributed among different affiliated companies. The acquisition of scrap metal production of a finished product and selling to the end consumer cannot and should not be concentrated in one company,” writes the author.
Kalenkov called “Ukrzaliznytsya” to prevent affiliated within one of the company’s business to participate in the tender on conditions 50% prepayment and conduct is important for the entire steel industry tender.
“As reported, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on March 1 gave a legal assignment to the Supervisory Board of “Ukrainian Railways” to consider the implementation accumulated at the enterprises of railway scrap through an electronic system with a priority right of purchase of metallurgical enterprises”, – the expert wrote.
