April 6 at the Government meeting chaired by the Prime Minister Askar Mamin, the issue of public-private partnership development was considered. Minister of Education and Science Kulyash Shamshidinova and Minister of Healthcare Yelzhan Birtanov reported on the use of this mechanism in the implementation of social projects.It is reported by the press service of PM.

According to the Minister of Healthcare Yelzhan Birtanov, over the past three years, the regions have concluded 111 PPP contracts totaling 52 billion tenge. At the stage of the tender procedures are 93 projects, at the development stage — 83 projects.

“Primarily, projects are being implemented in the regions for the construction and operation of facilities of the outpatient polyclinic service, as well as projects for equipping medical equipment,” said Birtanov.

For the implementation of projects for construction of outpatient and stationary facilities, it is proposed to use the “service PPP” model with payment of the tariff for medical services, as well as contracts with reimbursement of investments in case of transfer of the object to state ownership.

By the end of June 2019, on the basis of updated regional development plans, the Unified Perspective Plan for the Development of Health Infrastructure of the Republic of Kazakhstan until 2026 will be approved. Ministry of Healthcare is planning to introduce amendments to legislation for the implementation of PPP projects on the infrastructure model, taking into account international experience. It is also planned to create a Project Management Office in healthcare and a Unified Operator for the implementation of large-scale infrastructure healthcare projects with status consolidation at the legislative level (legal entity).

In education, as reported by Kulyash Shamshidinova, today 271 public-private partnership projects are being developed, 90% implemented through compensation of operating costs and only 10% through compensation of investment costs.

The main share of public-private partnership projects is implemented in the pre-school field.

“As a result, since 2013, the number of private pre-school organizations has increased from 1,045 to 3,640. At the end of 2018, the coverage of children aged 3 to 6 years was more than 95%,” the minister noted.

Thus, attracting the private sector, the government saved about 615 billion tenge, since to cover 307 thousand children it would be necessary to build more than 1 thousand new gardens. The creation of these conditions resulted in the opening of 15 new private schools in Kazakhstan, which makes it possible to reduce the shortage of student places by 5 thousand. By the end of the year, 18 schools will be opened.

As part of the public-private partnership in the field of technical and vocational education, it is planned to transfer in trust management of colleges to large enterprises, as well as the development of dual training.

In addition, the PPP mechanism has been successfully applied in the construction of student dormitories. Already this year, instead of the planned 5 thousand, More than 9 thousand places will be introduced.

Akims of the Kyzylorda region Krymbek Kusherbayev and North Kazakhstan — Kumar Aksakalov reported on the work carried out in the regions.
