In particular, conceptual amendments to the rules are: a) approval of the standard form of the consortium agreement, drawn up through the web portal of public procurement; b) regulation of the work experience calculation in the implementation of public procurement of works in the construction industry; c) introduction of the duty of customers to indicate in the technical specification for national standards of goods, works and services procured (if any). In case of their absence – for interstate standards; d) introduction of the obligation for the suppliers to provide a certificate of the goods’ origin. If the goods originate from Kazakhstan, the supplier is obliged to provide a ST-KZ certificate.
