During the reporting period, the department's revenues amounted to 46.7 billion rubles - 106%. The main volume of revenues - more than 94% - came from income from production sharing agreements, which exceeded the forecast by 8.6% last year.
The department did not fully meet the expenses. 8911.7 million rubles remained undeveloped - 3.4% of the approved budget allocations. The share of inter-budget transfers from the government reserve fund for the development of the NGV market accounted for more than half of the outstanding obligations.
As an example, the auditor Alexey Kaulbars cited the Rostov region, the government of which commissioned only seven out of 19 planned filling stations. With this result, it had to return by June 1 to the federal budget an amount proportional to the amount of unfulfilled obligations, estimated at 48 million rubles.
The Ministry of Energy replied that "a letter on the return of funds from the federal budget has been sent to the government of the Rostov region." The department did not agree with the conclusions of the auditors on most of the points. They believe that a check on "ineffective and inappropriate spending of federal budget funds has not been identified".
Earlier, the Accounts Chamber, together with the control and accounting bodies, was going to check the use of budget funds allocated for incentive payments to medical workers. In early September, an additional 22 billion rubles were allocated for these purposes.
Note that the deputy head of the Ministry of Energy is suspected of large fraud.
