In general, the procurement procedure established by the Edict is similar to that in effect until 01.01.2019 according to Presidential Edict No. 380 of 20.10.2016. This procedure is used in construction with involvement of the state or local budget, off-budget state funds, foreign state loans and foreign loans attracted under the guarantees of the Government of the Republic of Belarus, loans of banks of the Republic of Belarus, attracted under the guarantees of the Government of the Republic of Belarus, regional executive committees and Minsk City Executive Committee, but there are some innovations.
Thus, the list of cases when the procurement procedures are not mandatory or they can be omitted has been expanded. For example, when placing an order for:
The rule on the possibility of attracting previously selected designers to make amendments to the design documentation or its refinement has stopped the discussion that has existed in practice for a long time about the possibility of choosing a new contractor through a procurement procedure.

The decree established that the Council of Ministers of the Republic of Belarus was entitled to establish a preferential amendment used during procurement of goods (works, services) during construction, to determine its size and conditions of use if the participant offers such procedures for goods (works, services) of own production, as well as goods (works, services) originating from the Republic of Belarus and the member states of the Eurasian Economic Union.
The Edict will become effective on July 1, 2019, and will stay in full force and effect until July 1, 2021.
