Discussion of the project "Regulation from a clean slate" with business representatives

Today, a brainstorming session took place on the “Regulation from a Clean Slate” project with the participation of the Minister of Digital Development Bagdat Mussin and the First Vice Minister of National Economy Timur Zhaksylykov, as well as representatives of NCE Atameken and business.

At the moment, risk management systems have been formed in all areas of control and registers of mandatory requirements have been defined.

“The risk management system should be built on the basis of data collected in the information systems of state bodies. These data should be used to identify problem areas in various fields of business activity,” said Bagdat Musin.

The Digital Transformation Center team demonstrated the possibilities for developing services provided on the basis of risk management systems, as well as automatic notification of the appointment of inspections. Consider the life cycle of starting a business on the example of a travel operator.

The discussion turned out to be productive with constructive proposals for the interaction of business representatives with government agencies on issues of opening, submitting reports and passing inspections.

POA: problems and solutions 

A brainstorming session was held on this topic today with the participation of the Minister of Digital Development Bagdat Musin, Vice Minister of Industry Dinara Shcheglova, as well as representatives of the Housing and Public Utilities Committee, POA, and public organizations.  

The transition from Housing Cooperatives and other forms of management to POA began two years ago, however, it is not a secret that the process is very slow.   

Bagdat Musin drew the attention of the assembled guests to several problems that hinder the process: “The reform is being hampered because we have not fully regulated the process. The problem is that there is no single state mechanism: how to start the activities of the POA. There are a lot of programs, but each of them sees in its own way how to solve certain problems with registration”.  

Today, to create a POA, you need to register a legal entity - a non-profit organization. Further, at the meeting it is necessary to elect a chairman for one year. 

To register a POA, apartment owners must: 

  • hold a meeting on the creation of the POA;
  • elect from among the owners the council of the house for a period of three years, and also elect the chairman of the POA for one year (legal entity); 
  • elect an audit commission or an auditor for a term of three years;
  • approve the charter of the POA;  
  • submit documents on registration of the POA to the Service center.

Even at the stage of the meeting of owners and voting for the choice, the first problems arise. As a result of brainstorming, it was proposed to use the functionality of the eGov Mobile application as a single tool for voting.
