All types of violations

Stable relationships between the customer’s management and the supplier 

When the customer’s leadership changes, the supplier leaves following the customer’s leader.

To detect such risky procurements, it is necessary to analyze data on purchases where the same suppliers appear across different companies associated with the appointment of the same leaders. 

In addition to procurement data, information on the appointment/changes of the customer’s leadership should be collected.

Purchasing examples

According to data from journalist Bondarenko's channel, after the arrival of the Akim (Mayor) of Shymkent, tenders began to be handed over to the company Build Stroy. This company is associated with the deputy akim.

"In Shymkent, a major scandal is brewing. Professional municipal companies, with extensive experience in improvement (street cleaning, garbage collection, watering, landscaping), professional staff, and a fleet of specialized equipment, are being edged out of the market – through exclusion from tenders, inclusion in the registry of unscrupulous suppliers, and other tools of administrative resources – in favor of firms believed to be patronized by the city's Akim, Murat Aitenov, and his deputy Ergali Bilisbekov, overseeing the public procurement department."
