Software Developers

Starting from 1 January 2016, Russian state (federal) and municipal agencies can buy software of foreign origin only in cases where there is no comparable domestic analogue or where such analogues do not meet their tender requirements. Legislation prohibits these agencies from using foreign e-document management programmes, as well as foreign accounting and human resources systems. If a public authority nevertheless decides that the purchase of foreign IT products is necessary, it will have to justify this decision and in particular specify the reasons why the domestic products do not meet its requirements.
