The Moscow Department of Information Technology is the executive authority of Moscow subordinated to the Government of Moscow performing executive functions in the field of information technologies and also pursuing policy of the city of Moscow and performing cross-industry coordination in the field of informatization of other executive authorities of the city.

Subordinated organizations

For December, 2018, the DIT subordinated organizations are among:


Complete programs

  • Electronic Moscow is the city target program of the city of Moscow of the 2000th defining structure of actions for application of information and communication technologies in the municipal government and the social sphere. According to the results of its implementation financial violations for hundreds of millions rubles are opened.

Heads of Department

The committee is headed by the chairman appointed to a position and dismissed by the Government of Moscow.


2020: The size of the planned budget was 80.006 billion rubles.

On January 30, 2020 it became known that the size of the planned budget of Department of information technologies of the Government of Moscow (DIT) for 2020 is 80.006 billion rubles. Told about it in capital Finance department. Taking into account the sizes of the general planned budget of the city in 3.15 trillion rub the share of expenses of DIT in it makes 2.54%.

A year ago in the law on the budget of Moscow for 2019 and planning period of 2020 and 2021 it was supposed to select DITU in 2020 only of 67.8 billion rubles. At the same time the budget DITHAT for 2019 is stated in this document at the level of 60.9 billion rubles though afterwards this amount traditionally could grow a little.

The current law about the budget for 2020 and planning period of 2021 and 2022 was adopted by the Moscow thought at the end of November, 2019. On the website of the mayor's office the budget is still segmented only by state programs and for sections of budget classification. Segmentation on specific departments usually appears a bit later, sometimes at a boundary of March-April.

As reported, that in detailing of expenses on budget classification there is a section "Communication and information science" for which in 2020 79.8 billion rubles are selected. But, as explain in finance department, expenses on this direction are performed by several main managers of budgetary funds (MMBF). DIT — only one of them. Therefore almost full equality of the budget DITHAT and "Communications and information sciences" — is simple coincidence.

Funds DITHAT will be allocated for implementation of a number of state programs of the city within competence of department and also for non-program expenses — noted in finance department in a conversation.


From above-mentioned 80 billion rubles the most part naturally, as well as in previous years, will go for implementation of the "Development of a Digital Medium and Innovations" state program ("The smart city") — 72.2 billion rubles. On the second place the Safe City state program — 6.5 billion rubles. On the third place the Development of Health Care of Moscow state program — 0.4 billion rubles.

Non-program expenses DITHAT in 2020 are planned in the amount of 954 million rub[1].

2017: The IT budget of Moscow will rise 10-15 billion

Growth of expenses for education and housing and public utilities

Expenses of Department of IT of Moscow (DIT) in 2017 can grow almost by one and a half times. In a conversation with the journalist of CNews within the November of CNews Forum 2016 which passed in the middle the head of DIT Artem Yermolaev reported about it. "In 2017 the budget will increase almost by one and a half times. If not in one and a half, then for 30% precisely" — he told[2].

In 2016 one billion p32.14 were officially selected for capital informatization. Thus, the forecast of the Moscow minister for financing of its department in 2017 is in the range from one billion p41.78 to one billion p48.21 that means a gain to previous year on 10-16 billion rubles.

At the same time, in accepted on October 26, 2016. The Moscow thought in the first reading of the bill "About the Budget of Moscow for 2017 and Planning Period of 2018 and 2019." of DITU next year offers to select one billion pp46.1 (a gain for one billion p14). Also follows from the document that in 2018 financing of department will approximately be reduced to one billion p44.8, and in 2019 — to one billion p34.1.

Let's note that in the city budget of Moscow for 2016 and planning period of 2017 and 2018 approved a year ago it was supposed that in the coming year IT expenses of the capital will not grow, and will be reduced — to one billion p29.9.

Artem Yermolaev explained the reason of change of these financial plans with the fact that Moscow decided to perform global investment into education and housing and public utilities.

What extra money will go to

Acting on a plenary part of a forum, Yermolaev told that in 2016 Moscow began a pilot project at six capital schools on transition to the electronic system of teaching. In its framework to school there is a complete replacement of infrastructure. In particular, so-called interactive boards are succeeded by LCD panels which allow to show with the high definition and contrast the images visible even to the child with poor eyesight from the last school desk.

Also investments into wireless networks when in each class WiFi, and in replacement of the computer park appears are performed. "And the most important is transfer of a system of textbooks to an electronic form. So on in PDF, and directly in HTML — the official emphasizes. — It is important that the teacher and the pupil could work with materials in any place, at any time, and it was possible obtain information even during a disease".

On Yermolaev's assurance, on the basis of this pilot since 2017 full-scale investment into all schools of the city which will last also in 2018 will begin. "It is rather large-scale investments for the city, but we believe in their return because we see already now as far as the interest of pupils in objects increases in pilot schools — the head of DIT notes. — The electronic environment for them is more usual and more comfortable, than paper".

As for housing and public utilities, in this sphere Moscow is going to minimize participation of the person in the course of collecting of the reporting. The implementation of different devices and sensors transferring indications of an expense of housing and public utilities resources to the corresponding billing systems in the automatic mode — without manual entry of data is for this purpose planned.

2015: The cost plan on IT in a zdrava - 1.3 billion rubles

Operating costs for already created IT infrastructure will make about 2.2 billion rubles.

Such digits are given by the deputy manager of the Moscow Department of Information Technology Vladimir Makarov who is responsible for informatization of health care. "We do not assign strictly resources to the planned projects. Between projects there has to be competitiveness, including for money, by criterion "investments - usefulness". The project portfolio can be twice more than the amount of financing", - V. Makarov comments.

The operating costs on informatization of capital health care which reached a pica in 2012 — 2013 (thanks to and to budget injections), are gradually reduced: in 2013 they made 3.9 billion rubles, in 2014 – 2.6 billion rubles. These means will be spent for operation of the Uniform Medical Information and Analytical System (UMIAS) of the city which integrated 660 out-patient and polyclinic organizations, support of implementation of the electronic medical record (EMR), electronic recipe and other tasks. DIT does not exclude also emergence of unplanned projects – such what last year became creation of the electronic database of not identified patients.

According to V. Makarov, DIT stakes on optimization of operating costs. The service model on the basis of which implementation of IT in medical institutions is performed is aimed at it. "We do not buy printers – we buy service of printing. We buy not infomats in clinics, and services on their basis", – V. Makarov explains.

DIT of Moscow do not consider that the crisis economic situation influences financing and the course of informatization of capital health care. CAPEX planned for 2015 in 1.3 billion rubles can grow if necessary by 200-400 million rubles, having practically been equal to a similar indicator in 2013 — 2014 which increased against the plan thanks to optimization of operating costs. At the same time reduction of investments is considered as objective process in conditions when the most part of investments into development is already made.

In focus of attention of DIT in 2015 – economy of capital health care and also the prosy economy, say, time of the doctor turning into economy of means and replication of the EMR which will demand efforts and extra time not only from IT structures, but also doctors.

"We will not implement the electronic card if we do not exempt the doctor from many routine processes and we will not help it to focus on the EMR", – V. Makarov considers.

"Thus, if in 2012 we spent much for the equipment, then in the following we will be able to redistribute approximately the same funds for implementation of software. The work will be more. At reduction of the budget for 20%, the volume of work will grow approximately by 30%",-he concluded.

As TAdviser knew, on activity of DIT for 2013 is planned to select 25.4 billion rubles, in 2014 this digit will increase to 26.6 billion rubles. It is planned that the budget of 2015 will contain item of expenditure on IT in the amount of 27.8 billion rubles.

Moscow does not need subsidies of Ministry of Communications for informatization of the region, the subject needs an administrative resource of department for simplification of passing of some barriers. It was told on December 26, 2012 TAdviser by the director of DIT of Moscow Artem Yermolaev.

"We, of course, came with the formal requisition (tender of Ministry of Communications for subsidizing of regions on informatization, see article "Information Society" - an editor's note) for preserving of the status quo", - Artem Yermolaev told TAdviser about the reasons of loss of the subject for the small reasons. - But agreed with the ministry that out of the competition jointly we will implement several projects without financing. From Ministry of Communications there will be rather administrative resource".

According to Yermolaev investments into state services in the most part are already made.

"If the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications helped to remove some yuridiko-technical barriers the legislation, it would allow to automate process tens times faster and cheaper than if we were granted a subsidy for 200 million", - it continued.

Artem Yermolaev is sure, the city needs a contribution of the ministry in it. "Plus, it would be wrong to take away money in which they really are in great need from regions", - he continued to answer questions of TAdviser.

"If in absolute digits to compare the budget on IT of Moscow and, for example, Astrakhan, then this discrepancy in several orders. And it is natural, the Ministry of Communications which is interested in harmonization and in liquidation of digital inequality will hold competitions and to subsidize regions", - Artem Yermolaev told about an essence of actions of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications. - In this tender and so some washing out turned out: too many regions received subsidizing. It is not that case when two rubles already well".

Artem Yermolaev is sure that, despite limitation of resources at federal agency, at all desire to help all regions, it is better to give to smaller number, but it is more, - the efficiency from it will increase.

IT and communication in Nova Moskve

On a doinformatization of the territories attached to the capital (see. New Moscow) to the level of modern Moscow can be required at least 5 years. Such opinion was expressed by TAdviser on December 26, 2012 the director of DIT of Moscow Artem Yermolaev.

"It is connected with the fact that informatization without telecommunications cannot be. Now quality of infrastructure it that the speech even not about the optical cable - though what cable would be", - Artem Yermolaev told. - There the power transmission line that not always is".

The main objective on the near future Artem Yermolaev sees in alignment of availability of services of fixed connection in Nova Moskve.

"While it at the existing level it is difficult to speak about informatization", - he noted. - What's the use from the fact that the person has an opportunity to make an appointment with the doctor far off if he has no computer and the home Internet?".

Other problem preventing implementation of state programs Artem Yermolaev noted so low level of cellular communication. "There is a lot of problems therefore to say that in the next years we will make everything there – it would be wrong", - Artem Yermolaev continued to answer questions of TAdviser.

"Our task now to concentrate on those localities where most of all inhabitants to give them an opportunity to receive all range of services which are received by Muscovites. And gradually such steps to attach the new cities to our general system", - he told. - As soon as there is a communication, for example, connection of a health care system will take no more day".

Investment will be performed from non-budgetary sources.

"We carry out work with telecom operators, we convince of prospects of new territories", - Yermolaev continued. - Volumes of housing construction after expansion increased several times therefore telecom operators should go there. It is that ARPU which in old Moscow "catch" already late".


Courts with the entrepreneur Kuprin

In November, 2011 it became known that the twenty-nine-year-old entrepreneur Sergey Kuprin is going to dispute in court all last auctions for purchases of computer programs for the Moscow organizations. On two biddings he already submitted claims: about acquisition of programs of Adobe for schools on 42 million rubles and programs of IBM for a single system of management of registers on 24.87 million rubles (cards of affairs are on the website of Arbitration court of Moscow, the claimant — Kuprin's company "Eskey information technologies")[4].

In Moscow the department of information technologies (DIT) is engaged in purchases of the computer equipment and programs, Eskey also has legal proceedings with it. Collecting auction supply requisitions of programs, DIT requires the documents confirming the exclusive rights of suppliers to the software.

Having used data of, Vedomosti counted that since the beginning of 2011 of DIT was carried out by 41 auctions on purchase of software or equipment with the set software on 2.24 billion rubles, five more such tenders on 485.8 million rubles are until the end of the year announced. And only in two cases (24.3 million rubles) in auction documentation mentioning of "exclusive rights" is absent.

But only the producer has the exclusive rights to software, Kuprin writes in the statement of claim. He is sure that this restriction of the competition: IBM refused its Eskey the exclusive rights, and that could not participate in an auction. Kuprin requires to recognize illegal both results of an auction, and the requirement to confirm the exclusive rights. Kuprin told Vedomosti that obviously unrealizable requirement allows DIT not to allow to participation in an auction of strangers and to define winners, and it creates premises for corruption.

The managing partner of "Tulubyeva, Osipov and Partners" law firm Irina Tulubyeva with such logic it agrees: the exclusive right to the work can belong only to one company therefore several bidders with such rights — a nonsense.

Adobe reported to Vedomosti that it does not grant the exclusive rights to the license products. Microsoft — that provides to the partners equal conditions on sale of products.

The representative of DIT says that Kuprin misunderstood everything. According to the representative, clearly follows from the tender documentation: it is about confirmation of the rights to distribution of software. "The error to consider that if it is written 'exclusive', then it means that any more anybody does not have these rights" — he is sure. In the response provided to court DIT recognizes that it to it as confirmation of the exclusive rights was rather sublicense agreement of the supplier with creators of the program.

Five companies took part in tender on delivery of software of Adobe, the subsidiary company of the German PC Ware won. The CEO of the company affiliated with other participant of tender learned about the requirement to confirm the exclusive rights from Vedomosti and told that he is surprised. Judging from the fact that in an auction on Adobe there were many participants and all were allowed, the customer himself did not understand why he demanded the exclusive rights, the lawyer of developer company of programs argues. All participants of state biddings polled by Vedomosti on software say that other state agencies demand nothing similar from suppliers.

The Information City program is approved

In August, 2011 the Government of Moscow approves the new program of informatization "The information city".

Part of tenders to Internet access pass from Akado to MGTS

In June, 2011 DIT of Moscow published results of six tenders on providing access in the Internet of different municipal authorities for the period of the second half of the year 2011. According to the results of tenders the contractor changed only on one lot — providing with Internet access all Moscow schools and other objects of capital Department of Education[5].

The "Moscow City Telephone Network" (MCTN) which offered the price for project implementation in 308 million rubles became the winner. The second participant of the tender - Task - was ready to perform works for 311 million rubles.

"The Moscow Telecommunications Corporation of Comcor" was historically main provider providing schools with broadband access in the Internet (the brand of Akado-Telecom, enters into the Akado group). The company managed to be reached it against the background of the fact that its founder and the co-owner Yury Pripachkin until the end of 2005 headed the Electronic Moscow project.

With transition to the competitive system of distribution of contracts of Comcor several years won tenders, but in 2010 lost to little-known company "Simple Network" which market participants connected with Taskom. Again won tender for the first half of the year of this year Comcor, however during the second half of the year the operator did not even submit the application for continuation of service. The company of the reason of such solution did not begin to comment.

Shortly before etgo much attention to process of Internetization of schools was paid by the Mayor of Moscow Sergey Sobyanin. He demanded to increase access rate to 10 Mbps and also suggested to set at WiFi schools of spot jotas. The issue with equipment of WiFi schools will be resolved within other tender — on deliveries of a computer hardware, the head of DIT Artem Yermolaev told CNews.

At the same time Comcor saved three other contracts. It will continue to provide Internet access: to capital authorities, the price will be 354 million rubles (Task offered on this lot 361 million rubles, MGTS – 364 million rubles); territorial divisions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and FMS across Moscow – for 63 million rubles (MGTS - 65 million rubles, Task - 64 million rubles); to clinics, hospitals and other organization of capital department of health care – 73 million rubles (MGTS and Task offered approximately 75 million rubles).

'Task' reserved the service contract of libraries, museums and other objects of department of culture, the company will receive 107 million rubles MGTS for it offered on this lot 126 million rubles, Comcor - 127 million rubles. Also the company won the tender for providing children with the Internet with the weakened sight for the purpose of remote education again, the price of a question was 2.6 million rubles (MGTS and Comcor offered approximately 5.9 million rubles). The CEO Task Ivan Kurayev reported to CNews that the operator reduced the price in comparison with previous approximately by 40%.

In the long term DIT intends to provide all city consumers with speed up to 10 Mbps and to transfer them to optical communication links. Taking into account that providing objects is the long-term project, DIT is going to hold competitions of times in several years.
