A number of companies, in the context of the coronavirus pandemic included in the list of backbone systems, complain about problems created due to this status, Kommersant reports. In particular, they are unhappy with the large number of reports that need to be regularly sent to the state industry information system (GISP) of the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
According to newspaper sources, we are talking about financial, operational and HR-indicators, and some of them are not even collected by companies for themselves. Companies must also perform stress tests every three days. According to the interlocutor of the publication, in case of refusal, enterprises unofficially threaten to exclude from the list the backbone or not to allow for any support.
Government approved measures to support systemically important enterprises
Kommersant notes that the protocol of the meeting with First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov of May 12 does state the obligation of all industrial system-forming enterprises to update the financial and economic status data in the GISP system on a weekly basis, otherwise “consideration of applications for support measures regarding these organizations will be suspended. ”
Nissan told Kommersant that they counted on state support in terms of replenishing working capital and compensating staff costs, but “due to excessive requirements and complicated selection procedures” could not take any of the measures. A large holding company from the list of backbone systems in the field of information and communication technologies, which is supervised by the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media, faced the same problem.
