The State Concern "UkrOboronProm" (UOP) held a meeting of a specially established tendering committee, involving the specialist of the Independent Defense Anti-Corruption Committee Transparency International-Ukraine, which will help to select the international consulting company using "competitive dialogue" procedure. Thus, the Concern started the process of conducting an international audit.

“We launched the next stage of UOP’s reform. Implementation of such a large-scale process as international audit and transformation of UOP’s enterprises into joint stock companies will last for about 2 years", – noted management of the State Concern at the press conference devoted to the state of UOP reform and plans.

UOP representatives added that in the final stage of this process they expect to receive restructured assets that will be formed in several joint-stock holding companies, each of which will specialize in a certain defense industry sector and have the opportunity to enter the stock market.

It should be noted that today the defence industry complex of Ukraine needs to create organizational and legal conditions for corporatization of state enterprises in this sector of the state economy. UOP has already addressed the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Committee on National Security and Defense on this issue.
