According to Mr Belousov, most protective measures are factored into the law on the federal contract system, which will come into force on January 1, 2014. In particular, the Minister mentioned a clearly written procedure for determining an initial price, which will eliminate the possibility of fraud, as one of the measures stipulated by the law. The new law also provides a mechanism for protecting the rights of service providers, through the possibility of a pre-trial contract termination.
