At the profile institutions of regional subordination, in 2018, respectively, 37.7 and 13.2 million hryvnia. Meanwhile, the regional department of education is not yet ready to provide information on which institution, for what amount, what list of works on fire safety and in what terms will be made at the expense of almost 52 million hryvnias stipulated by the deputies of the regional council in December of the past of the year.
According to Iryna Kovalish, contrary to the repeated demands of MPs from the OPPOSITION BLOC faction, comprehensive measures to implement fire safety measures in the regional educational, health and social sphere institutions for the amount of more than 100 million hryvnas were not separately registered and included in the regional profile program.
"For the transparency of the process, and most importantly the control of the timely execution of work, this would be an ideal option. Instead, the amount of 100 million was distributed to the general content of almost 130 regional institutions. Find out the information about which institution, the amount of the regional budget, what will be done and when it will be made from the list of fire prevention measures necessary for the implementation of this year, only through a deputy request. As of the end of February, only the Department of Health and the Department of Social Policy of the State Administration provided detailed information with the name and position of the person responsible for the implementation of fire safety measures. In the social sphere, the largest amount of work is to be done in the Mirnopol Geriatric Boarding House, the Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi Orphanage and the Velykorybalske Psychoneurological Boarding House. In the medical industry, a serious front of work to bring the fire safety systems into proper shape will concern the Children's Regional Hospital, the Belinsky Antitubercular Dispensary, the Oleksandrivka Psychiatric Hospital, the Oncologic Dispensery and the Regional Clinical Hospital," Iryna Kovalish noted.
In total, according to the plan of financing and carrying out works on fire safety at the expense of the Regional Budget-2018, there are 12 institutions of regional subordination of the social sphere and 39 - medical institutions.
"To date, the regional department of education has not provided information on the implementation of fire safety measures in the regional institutions for a total of 51.5 million hryvnia. And this - almost 80 boarding schools, technical schools and colleges, where children learn. The department's reply indicates that educational institutions are already concluding contracts with contractors to make estimates and promise to spend all 52 million hryvnas in the first half of the year. Although the website of Prozorro does not contain information on any tender procedures related to the purchase of fire extinguishers, maintenance of fire alarms and other activities in the regional educational institutions," Iryna Kovalish said.
