Odessa Sea Port Authority initiates legislation simplification in the sphere of state procurement for strategic enterprises

To set simplified and more accessible form of inventory, services and works procurement for state-owned enterprises that have strategic importance to the economy and national security: this is in two words the ideology of the legislative initiative of Odessa Sea Port Authority, which made a proposal to amend the Law of Ukraine "On peculiarities of procurement in certain spheres of economic activity" (No. 4851-VI).


According to Odessa Sea Port Authority General Manager, M. Sokolov, during two years that have passed since the creation of Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority, the management of Odessa Sea Port Authority repeatedly proposed changes and additions to legal acts regulating the activities of public enterprises.


Another legislative initiative of the port workers, according to M. Sokolov, was dictated by an urgent need to modernize the legislation in the field of state procurement, which today does not meet the realities of the time, the norms of international practice, and creates difficulties in business activities of enterprises.


The main point of change in the Law is that along with the current procurement procedure for customers - companies included in "the List of objects of state property, which is of strategic importance to the economy and security of the state" (approved by the CMU decree No. 83 as of 04.03.2015) offers an alternative way of goods, services and works procurement, without limiting value in electronic form, by way of carrying out of an auction with the price reduction in online mode (subsequently the order of purchasing data in electronic form must be approved with separate documents, including the requirements clarification in relation to members qualification).


Thus, all state-owned enterprises retains the right to perform public procurement under existing competitive bidding (tender), with all its bureaucratic delays and difficulties in obtaining documents.


Also changes offered by the Odessa Sea Port Authority will give the opportunity for all state-owned enterprises without an exception to increase the threshold value of the limits of the subject of procurement for goods, works and services, and to bring them to current market value, which grew in local currency, due to the depreciation of the national currency.


Thus, in accordance with part 3 article 2 and part 1 of article 4 of the law "On peculiarities of procurement in certain spheres of economic activity", enterprises are permitted at their own expense to buy without procedure of competitive bidding (tender) goods and services with sum up to 1 million UAH, and the work – up to $ 5 million. Port workers consider it appropriate to raise a specified cost benchmark for the goods and services to 5 million USD, and works, respectively, to 10 million UAH.


According to M. Sokolov, the decision to initiate the simplification of legislation in the sphere of purchases was made on the basis of experience of the procurement of goods and services through electronic trading platforms.


 -There is no need to convince anyone that on smooth work of transport and its Maritime component, in particular, depends the stability of the national economy in general, comments the position of the port authority its General Manager M. Sokolov. – At the same time, at the example of the port, as a major transport hub, we see excessive regulation of procurement procedures that prevents the company from its own funds (not budgeted) to quickly purchase the building materials and spare parts, to conclude contracts with contractors for maintenance of engineering infrastructure, road maintenance, machinery and mechanisms. Today, we are already have well-proven, simple, clear and transparent mechanism for electronic trading "subthreshold amounts", which eliminates the risks of corruption.


Introducing proposed changes to the Law will improve the efficiency of strategic enterprises work, will make them more mobile in the resolution of economic issues and more attractive to investors, will expand the number of potential participants, including foreign, will ensure transparency of public procurement procedures, and also will reduce government spending by means of the auction procedure will, added M. Sokolov.

Popular excursion “Path of a light keeper” has renewed at Odessa Sea Port

One of the main symbols of Odessa,, i.e. Vorontsov lighthouse, is again in access area for tourist groups. On July 28, after completion of repair works at the Raidovy Mole, the first excursion in this year “Path of a light keeper” was held. The premiere of a season at hyper-popular route was organized by the Port Authority Tourism Department and was "sanctified" by the participation of Ivan Tzihovich, the Patriarch of the domestic housing of lighthouse keepers. By the way, March next year marks 60 years since Ivan Timofeyevich has become the keeper of the Vorontsov lighthouse.

Resumed construction works at the Quarantine Mole

The construction of the container terminal in the framework of investment project "Quarantine mole" implementation is being held. The first and second start-up facilities of the new terminal were put into operation in August 2014.  The Capacity is  250 thousands TEU per year, two berths with a length of 650 meters, 112.4 thousand sq. m. of warehouse space, allows to accept vessels with a draught of 14 m.


The project oversees berths operation regardless of the completion of the breakwater construction, which is confirmed by obtained permits by GASK and Registry of Shipping of Ukraine. For example, in similar conditions without the protection of a breakwater berth No. 7, i.e. Oil Harbor, for processing gas carrier vessels operated safely from March 2006. In September last year at the new terminal first two container ships were operated.


What is the situation at the Quarantine Mole today?

The Contracting Company "MAST-BUD LTD" Acting Director Yuriy Shupik commented on the ongoing activities:


On July 8, our builders have resumed works at the Quarantine Mole, which were interrupted due to the fact that part of the protective breakwater descended from regular places. The scope of work was defined previously by signed agreements between Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority within the limits of available funds. Now the preparatory works have started at the terminal: construction of temporary roads, of reversal and of areas for construction materials storage, the necessary construction equipment is being mobilized. At the reinforced concrete constructions manufactory the order for the manufacture of concrete slabs for arrangement of the construction site was placed.


In the next two months, and to be more precise in August and September, we plan to proceed directly to hydro technical works. They include: the construction of a temporary berth at the Raidoviy Mole, dumping and levelling the sand berm with subsequent packing of gravel, etc. Until the end of the year dumping sand berms, with laid on them ballast and geo-grid, and tetrapods will be finished. Thus, the temporary suspension of construction works at the new terminal is in the past, and we are steadily moving towards the goal to complete the project "Quarantine mole".


Unfortunately, because of political and economic recession the ports of Ukraine have reduced the volume of containers transhipment. But together with the operator of the terminal, the investor company "HPC-Ukraina" Odessa port is hopeful for the future. There is confidence that the situation in the country will change for the better, and the operator of the terminal will be able not only to restore pre-recessed volume of containers, but also to attract new customers.

The works on creation on a new generation security System are being carried out at Odessa Sea Port

Video surveillance systems and automatic access control that are in operation today in Odessa port, in the next few years are to be upgraded and integrated into a single hardware and software system using intelligent tools and analysis. The creation of such a complex will allow ensuring compliance with the requirements of common marine and transportation security of the enterprise in relation to the modern worldwide standards.

 - The new system should include electronic tools for video recording and analysis, centralised control-analytical post and a division of rapid response to emergencies and risk prevention, commented further V. Protsenko. – Among the principal novelties of our proposed Concept we can name the introduction of automatic transmission skips fopr cars and trucks, integrated with functions of license plate recognition, number of wagons and containers, the faces of drivers and passengers. Some elements of the new System are already tested in the port. For example, automated pedestrian gate.
