Over the past year, the government has developed and launched an unprecedented number of support measures aimed at intensive infrastructure development in the country. The priority is to create a comfortable environment in the cities, create educational institutions, sports facilities, modernize public utility networks and develop transport. We are talking about allocation of several trillion rubles. At the same time, most of the launched support measures are provided only if the project implementation involves extra-budgetary financing in the public-private partnership format.
Regions and municipalities, which, in fact, act as the main customers of infrastructure construction projects, are facing a new management challenge — to offer investors a portfolio of high-quality structured projects that will meet the requirements necessary to receive federal support in a short period of time. All this will be possible if new principles of client-centeredness are introduced into the current activities of the authorities, in which the main client of the state will be a private investor.
• How to unify business processes related to the preparation of projects applying for federal support?
• How do the requirements and criteria for project selection differ depending on the sector and the specific program?
• How to raise the level of trust between investor and government and are digital solutions capable of increasing the efficiency of their interaction?
