The law grants the right to the Ministry of Defense to be the direct member of international contracts (without any other representatives). The document provides an opportunity to directly purchase goods and services for defense purposes. This optimizes the process and speeds up purchases, as well as saves money due to the lack of fees for intermediary services.
