When the preparation of the tender documentation, there is prescribed for all stages of activities and changes in the timing, for example, or list of works. The changes it considered significant. However, the creative process is a postponement of performance or changes in the number and composition of participants, change of scenery, to resolve the strict regulations of this law impossible,» — said the Deputy Minister.
