The MOD’s Reforms Project Office Calls for the Cancellation of the Decision of KDAC to Stop the AFU’s Transition to New Food Supply System

Together with the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, the Reforms Project Office of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine was outraged by the decision of Kyiv District Administrative Court, which blocked the effect of Order No. 90 of March 4, 2019 on the transition of military units to food supply under the modern system.

We consider the situation twice as shameful when the court, which has to strictly adhere to the laws of Ukraine, upholds the interests of the individual entrepreneur, which previously blocked grocery bidding at the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine and, when these efforts failed, went to court.
 
This move of Kyiv District Administrative Court has two key negative effects:

1. The transition of new military units and establishments to the modern food supply, planned in August, is delayed. This process is postponed to December, which jeopardizes product bidding, since only a few suppliers want to bid for a month in the government tenders;

2. All bidding for products for military units that have already been subscribed to the nutrition system under the Catalog were canceled.

The Ministry of Defence of Ukraine has already protested the decision of Kyiv District Administrative Court. According to the rules, the court above is expected to respond to the defence department's reaction by Friday, and the chances of the ruling being overturned are high. 

Nevertheless, the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine is already forced to initiate another phase of product bidding, which will last for about 2 months, unless the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine receives a protest from the suppliers (which is likely).

We urge the judges of Kyiv District Administrative Court to reverse their ruling, not interfere with the Army's transition to new nutrition, and not be disgraced.
