The Federal Antimonopoly Service and Rostourism have developed recommendations for conducting contests for the distribution of subsidies for tourism development. The departments believe the document will make the terms of the grant program more convenient for businesses.
Therefore, the Federal Antimonopoly Service and the Federal Tourism Agency recommend that the competition organizers clearly regulate the procedure for the consideration and evaluation of applications by the competition commission. Particular attention should be paid to the procedure for concluding grant agreements and calculating the amount of the grant.
“For example, organizers are recommended to set reasonable deadlines for accepting participation requests, specify in the contest regulations the list of documents that the application must contain, and regulate the rights and obligations of the members of the contest committee. Criteria for evaluating applications must be clearly formulated. Members of the tender committee should be informed about the existence of a conflict of interest. – he explained in the press service of the FAS.
In addition, according to the departments, the organizers must quickly publish on the Internet all the necessary information for the participants: the start and end dates of the acceptance of applications, the conditions of participation in the contest, the list of documents that the application must contain , the results of the evaluation of the applications indicating the points assigned.
The FAS reminds that if violations of the antitrust law are detected during the competitions, the participants have the right to send an official appeal to the department.
“The joint work of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia and the Federal Tourism Agency is aimed at creating transparent mechanisms and ensuring fair conditions for the distribution of state subsidies for the development of tourism in Russia. This is a prerequisite for protecting competition and , as a consequence, will improve the quality and availability of tourist services”, stressed the department official.
